Trolls from four countries 1 5, 9:35pm

I can't help but notice that the norwegian troll is wery inspiered by the verson drawn and painted by Theodor Kittelsen. And this confuses me, because in the northern part of Norway, were I live, trolls don't look like that. They look much more like huge humans, and in many tales, troll women or girls are described as wery beautiful. They also turn to stone, and die, if the sun shines on them.
The northen verson of the huldra, or hulde-folk, is also quite different.
