Norwegian term or phrase: tore rørtveit: (tore om seg selv): Tore er rett og slett Tore. Ingen ved siden,

Explanation:
Hello Rob,

Tore is a common male first name in Norway. Rørtveit is his family name.
Could be the name of the farm/village his family still live or came from.

So the translation would be:
Tore om seg selv = Tore about himself

Tore er rett og slett Tore =
Tore is simply Tore

Ingen ved siden =
(directly translated) Nobody next to/beside,

Here I think it´s part of a sentence which could be:
Ingen ved siden, ingen over.
("Nobody at his level, nobody is better")

Used to describe/express the uniqueness of a person. Could be used in a positive way, but also to describe the bad habits of a person (a person being somewhat chaotic but still worth loving).......

I wish you good luck !
Greetings from Tone

Explanation:
Hello again,

The expression at the end of "your question" is mostly put this way in Norwegian; "Ingen over, ingen ved siden"

See my comment above.

Good luck !
