If installing Debian choosing Norwegian Bokmål as your system language
the other Scandinavian langiages are defined as fallback languages if
translations are missing:

Allthough very similar the other scandinavian languages are not suited
as fallbacks for technical texts. I usually have to prepend LANG=C to
whichever command I am running in these cases in order to understand the
exact details of the messages. I suggest removing "da" and "sv" from the
above string. If the same is the case for Norwegian Nynorsk, Swedish and
Danish I'd suggest doing the same for those languages as well.
