Hi Bruno, The Norwegian Language Council through the websites of the National Library hosts three databases recorded in Swedish, Norwegian and Danish, respectively. The quality of the recordings is rather high and the databases are entirely free. You can find all the data at the link below abasar The documentation is in Norwegian, but perhaps google translate can help. Hope this meets your requirements. Good luck!
