We ship with Norwegian post. If you are in the US the package will arrive with the US postal service. There is no tracking service available at this time. The price with a carrier or as recommended post with tracking is just too expensive. The high flat rate reflects the actual shipping costs from Norway, unfortunately. However, if you do order more than 1 book, there is a shipping discount given for the additional books. We have, so far, not experienced any delivery problems with Norwegian Post. Please note that shipment may take up to 4 weeks.
