Reidar Thoralf Larsen (8 October 1923 – 16 February 2012) was a Norwegian politician.[1] He was chairman of the Communist Party of Norway from 1965 to 1975, when he resigned from his position, left the party and joined the Socialist Left Party (SV). He left SV in 1999 in protest against the party's support for the NATO bombing of Yugoslavia, and because he felt the party wasn't radical enough.[1]

Larsen was a member of the Parliament of Norway from 1973 to 1977, representing Hedmark.[2][3]
