I live in Norway and has +2 hours time offset. When I look at some of my photos, there seems to be wrong time. Is there a way to check if 2 hours is added to the time of the capture?

LR has had lots of bugs with capture times of videos, but (at least up to now) nothing of the sort you're describing with photos. As a first troubleshooting step, use the Metadata Viewer plugin to compare the capture date recorded in EXIF (Date Time Original) with the capture date displayed by LR in the Metadata > Default panel. If they're the same, then LR is just showing what's recorded in the photos (perhaps because the camera's clock was set wrong). If they're different, please post screenshots of what Metadata Viewer shows and the Metadata > Default panel shows.

Thank you. The plugin is installed and running. But get this message:

No, it should provide a 40-day free-trial period. I haven't seen that error reported before -- Friedl's plugins are normally quite robust. You could report the error to him.

In the meantime, you could use his online version, which is free but slower:

Look for the field "Date/Time Original". (There are so many fields called "date".)
