last time I slept in a room without a window was on a firetrap called a navy ship. For your own safety find another place to sleep.

We generally leave a BR window open a bit until the outside temp drops into the 30's.

Drill holes in the wall.
Kinda like how you punch holes in a jar's lid when you have a bug in it

If it is an old house, as the OP stated, in Norway, it may not be subject to the codes several people referenced. If its not practical to install a window, and there is no ducted air supply to the room, the OP should consider installing a vent in the door or an interior wall. This will also allow some noise in, but you can't sleep in a box and expect it to not be stuffy.

can a ceiling fan be installed? A fan of some kind needs to present to circulate the air that is in the room, and possibly pull fresh air in from another room in the house.
Ventilation holes at the top and bottom of the door would help to circulate air in and out.

If you insist on sleeping here, I would drill a hole in the wall for an air vent that you can open and close. You could even get one with a fan hooked up.

The answer is to FIND ANOTHER PLACE TO SLEEP!

The best way to do that is find a "significant other" and move in with them so long as they don't sleep in a closed box.

It's an older house and doesn't have a window? Is it a converted closet?

I legal bedroom has a window for ventilation and a means of egress, in case of fire, (lets not even go there), and a closet.
In Europe a room doesn't have to have a closet to be considered a bedroom. Our home in England had no closets in any of the bedrooms.
Many people have armoires (wardrobes) or install floor to ceiling built ins.
Virtually no-one has walk in closets although some , maybe Victorian or Edwardian homes do have built in closets and many of the newer homes.
