Norwegian term or phrase: av en utenfor natt
The title of an apparently fictitious book, mentioned in a short story, is "Dagbok van en vanvittig djevel av en utenfor natt." I'm unsure how to translate this. "The Diary of a mad devil...?...night."

Explanation:
It's confusing sentence, and yes, it looks like a bad computer translation. Perhaps it should be something like "The diary of mad devil on a night out"? At least that would make more sense.
