I note the headline specifically is "Norway Warns of Vaccination Risks for Sick Patients Over 80".

The second and third paragraphs of the article; emphasis is mine:

Norwegian officials said 23 people had died in the country a short time after receiving their first dose of the vaccine. Of those deaths, 13 have been autopsied, with the results suggesting that common side effects may have contributed to severe reactions in frail, elderly people, according to the Norwegian Medicines Agency.

“For those with the most severe frailty, even relatively mild vaccine side effects can have serious consequences,” the Norwegian Institute of Public Health said. “For those who have a very short remaining life span anyway, the benefit of the vaccine may be marginal or irrelevant.”
Given this problem hasn't been reported anywhere else in the world, only Norway, its worth asking if there is actually a problem with the vaccine OR if there's a problem with how it has been administered in Norway.
