    He was listed as a 'confidential contact' in KGB files.
    His short stint as prime minister was marred by several scandals, including the resignation of two cabinet ministers.
    His predecessor as PM and Labour Party leader, Gro Harlem Brundtland, called him 'stupid' for his tactics in the 1997 elections.
    He grabbed talk show host Synnove Svabo's breasts on national TV (1998).
    As foreign minister, he made a joke about meeting 'Bongo from Congo' that was considered racially insensitive.
    He was considered the main instigator behind the controversial decision to award the Nobel Peace Prize to Barack Obama during his first year as president (2009).

    His response to Brundtland's criticism was 'I would never describe another person in those terms.'
    He took being hit with a pie before a May Day parade in stride (2001).
    He recommended sending more Norwegian troops to Afghanistan, saying 'If NATO is demanding them, Norway should contribute.'
