Is there slave trade in Norway?

Question by rat.: Is there slave trade in Norway?
This sounds silly, but are there groups up in Norway that kidnap women and sell them as sex slaves?
I know this occurs in other regions of Europe but I’m unsure about Scandinavia.
I’m leaving for Norway soon and though I know I’m not exactly a prime target being overweight and looling like a lesbian, I do want to be aware of what’s going on.

I wouldn’t think there’s much abduction, but a lot of girls that get lured into prostitution and such in other countries – especially in eastern europe – get smuggled into Norway to work there.

I’m on a mono roll, baby!

Man, I had such a blast at this beach, the little river running through it is littered with comps! This is taken a bit nearer the water than my last mono.

When I saw this rock and the two little starfish I switched on Zen Mode. Full focus. I don’t know how long I stayed at the same spot trying lots of different POV’s and comps, but when I was finished I realized that I was shivering so badly I had to run a few laps along the beach to get warm again. Those moment of complete consentration is one of the reasons I love photography so much, I seldom completely relax other than these moments. I have a quite stressful job, and moments like that is worth a week of vacation in terms of getting your shoulders down.
