Bad accents

I have listened to several of Lucinda Riley's books and enjoyed them very much. While I enjoyed the story in The Storm Sister, I do question the artistic licence the author gives herself with regards to the main character's implied blood ties to a famous historic character.
I was not really impressed with the narration. I thought that the French accent was unnecessary and didn't really add to the story, rather the opposite in fact. And the Norwegian part was a disaster! I am a native Norwegian, and the pronunciation of the Norwegian words like Mor (mother), Far (father), Kjære (dear) and location names made me cringe every time. The Norwegian language has 3 letters that don't exist in English - æ, ø, å. The narrator got them frequently confused, and repeatedly used the sounds in words that don't even have those sounds. I realise that Norwegian isn't a widely spoken language, but this doesn't justify not doing your research and making sure that words are pronounced correctly.
