Complaining about the bill isn’t always advisable. In February, a prostitute’s client protested to police about not having received his money’s worth, according to nordlys.no,

“He contacted the police because he didn’t think that he’d been given the service he’d paid for,” Kurt Pettersen, head of Troms police station told the paper.

The dispute started after he’d only paid part of what he owed.

“But when they disagreed about the rest, the woman left and the man received nothing,” he said.

Buying sexual services in Norway has been illegal since the beginning of this year, and the man had to pay an 8,000 kroner penalty. He is the only one who has been fined in the district to date.

It seems the guilty can do all but keep quiet.
