"schadenfreude" is known in Norwegain as well ("skadefryd"), and can be illustrated by a Norwegian saying that can be translated to something like "Own success is great, but the misfortune of others may be a great substitute" (Egen lykke er bra, men andres ulykke er heller ikke å forakte). That expresses the sentiment of "skadefryd" quite well.
