Norway travel guide ?2010-ish?

I had a very comprehensive Rick Steves Norway guide book published in 2010 or slightly earlier. I let my niece borrow it, and it is now misplaced/lost. She gave me “Snapshot”, as a consolation prize. It’s not nearly as detailed and complete as the copy that I lent to her. We have booked a cruise from Stavanger to Honningsvag, consisting of 8 ports of call over 9 days. Does anybody know where I can obtain a replacement copy of the now out of print travel guide? Multiple google searches have yielded no results. It was probably 1200 pages in length, and I would love to have a replacement copy. Thanks for any leads you can provide.

Would Rick's Northern European Cruise Ports Guidebook be of value?

Not sure, Bruce. I haven’t checked the table of contents. Worth exploring if nothing else reveals itself. Thanks for the suggestion.

Not a Rick Steves guide, but Lonely Planet's Norway guidebook is more comprehensive than Rick's Scandinavia in terms of covering the somewhat off the beaten tourist path places. The LP guide may be a good companion to your Snapshot guide.

Is it Norway specifically or the "Scandinavia" guidebook? Either way, type "used Rick Steves Norway guidebook" and see what online stores may offer the edition you used to have (I found this one: https://www.thriftbooks.com/w/rick-steves-scandinavia_rick-steves/672087/?mkwid=sd8wmFG10%7cdc&pcrid=70112894472&pkw=&pmt=&plc=&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIpOHei6-h2AIVDId-Ch245QCsEAkYAyABEgIAnPD_BwE#isbn=1612381928&idiq=3993313) .

Also try your local thrift store or used book store - I have found plenty of dated but perfectly usable RS books at both over the years.
