On Thursday night, police said several people saw a shark head outside a local sushi restaurant in Parkveen, Oslo.
One of the police patrols must have come across the shark head and the person holding it. The man was taken to the emergency room.
– The municipality announced and must remove the shark’s head at night. Last night the police reported that there was no police case.

Passerby Christian Nordstad was a bit surprised when he passed a local sushi restaurant in Parkween at 9am on Thursday.
– It’s still there. That’s special. I think the sushi mafia has settled down. Gone are the shark fins, he jokingly told Dogbladet.
At around 09.45, a reporter from Dogbladet confirmed that the shark’s head was still there. Dagbladet tried to get a comment from the Urban Environment Institute in Oslo, but so far without success.
Comes from Coop
Harald Christiansen, Coop Norge’s communications manager, confirmed to Talkblade that the shark head was sold at Coop Mega Bislet in Oslo. It should be a matter of trust.
– The shark head probably comes from Coop Mega Bislett, which occasionally accesses shark as a by-product. It is a very popular product. Last week we brought in 120kg of shark and yesterday only the head was left. “The norm is to split the head and take the biggest pieces, but by mistake a customer bought the whole head,” says Christiansen.
The Håbrann is a large predatory shark that is very widespread along most of the Norwegian coast and in other northern waters. Christiansen says sharks are sold for NOK 150 a kilo and a head usually weighs 30-40 kilos.
He added that Koop apologizes to passers-by who “got the feeling of shark summer on the streets of Oslo”.
– This is not a PR trick. Unfortunately, this customer had completely different intentions than just eating the product. It’s a real shame that’s where the food ends, says Christianson.
