The passenger lists can be here ...

These same lists are indexed by Ancestry, so if you have a subscription 
it will save you some time.    It sounds like you have found his 
emigration record from Norway, so it it contains a date, then add a few 
days and try the closest Hamburg sailing dates above, first.

Most likely he travelled on to Minnesota by rail.

Good luck,
