here's an idea. ever consider making your own? blueprints online, and just follow the instructions till you get it right then you wont have to "buy" them. as long as the law states that you have to be a licensed pyrotechnician to "purchase" them, there is your loophole. if you made them at home and are setting them off on your property, over your property, you should be fine. the only trouble you would have is buying gunpowder, magnesium powder and fuses. but once that is out of the way, just go online for instructions. the other required materials you can find at any hobby store.
Aww. Scandinavia is a very strange group of countries. They should just make people apply instead of having to be technicians themselves. Here, we just get TV segments in July, that warn about what horrible things can happen to your hands if you fire it wrong. I don't know how Norwegian government works, but is there a way they can overturn it?
Yeah, I hate it when we all suffer when one jerk causes an accident (or not an accident...*cough* terrorists *cough*).
