Those who can read Norwegian and sometimes follow Norwegian newspapers, should make a note of Trygve Hegnar, who runs his own newspaper, Finansavisen, meaning almost “Financial Times” in Norwegian, and Kapital, a bi-weekly magazine. Hegnar is an economist, and both publications focus on finance and economy, in addition to other stuff.

He began his career as an editor with Kapital, and later started a daily newspaper, Blikk, not to be confused with the gay culture and politics magazine with the same name. Hegnar’s Blikk had the same layout as the German BildZeitung.

Blikk did not last long, but some of the style of the initial broadsheet (no real tabloids back then, in the 70s) still lingers on in Finansavisen.
