Put in your .emacs
(setq default-input-method "latin-1-prefix")
if you want to enter accents with prefix notation  e.g. 'e  for
accented e. Type C-\ to activate/desactivate the input method when you
are in a buffer.

Or better, specify some language environment in your .emacs e.g.
(set-language-environment 'Swedish)
The input method will be set accordingly.
Type  M-x describe-language-environment RET SPC
to get a list of all language environments available on your system.
Norway doesn't seem to be available on my system though.
