comment Expressions of gratitude
It can mean polite, but also something done with thoughtfulness/consideration to detail (e.g. 丁寧にアイロンをかける).

comment Unusual dakutens and つ instead of っ
@snailboat ooh, data, shiny. I suspect the OP's problem actually comes from errors in an illicit digital file as opposed to any genuine 'misprint' or other effect but the question at least has caused some interesting discussion.

あの… I didn't think there was an e-book on sale for ノルウェイの森. (At least, not the Japanese version).

Interesting about optional devoicing - I remember a while back reading an online novel by a native speaker who consistently used ベット for ベッド, which at the time I assumed was just an error by the author.

Which edition/page numbers did you find these? Perhaps someone else has the book (I don't) and could check.

comment Are there any rules for choosing between おお and おう?

comment Can 〜てなんかいない contract to 〜てなんかない?
I don't know if these forms are standard/linguistically acceptable, but basically I think the なんか version may be an emphatic version of ~ては<い>ない. And while looking to see if I could find any better references than my gut feelings, I found: japanese.stackexchange.com/questions/4431
