Kjell Magne Bondevik ([çɛlː mɑŋnə bunːəviːk] (About this sound listen); born 3 September 1947) is a Norwegian Lutheran minister and politician (Christian Democratic Party). He served as Prime Minister of Norway from 1997 to 2000, and from 2001 to 2005.

He is Norway's longest serving non-Labour Party Prime Minister since World War II.[1]

On 31 January 2017, he was the first high-ranking politician from another country detained and questioned in the United States as a result of President Donald Trump's executive orders banning immigration from seven predominantly Muslim nations, because of a diplomatic visit to Iran he had made in 2014.[2][3]
