Answering both Torkel and Dag:
Again a very interesting difference between the political culture in Denmark and Norway: In Denmark it would be seen as a huge sign of weakness if the Prime Minister did not replace an outgoing minister within 24-72 hours after they announced their resignation. The Queen (or regent) would the recieve the outgoing and incoming minister the same day. Even if it is not planned - she changes her schedule. In Norway this seem less urgent, one can wait a week or two or three - and outgoing Ministers can remain in office for weeks with no problems.
