Hvem(Who) is used with people. Hva(What) cannot be used with people.
Hvilken/hvilket/hvilke(Which) is used with people and things.
Below are some examples that should make the things clearer.

|Hvilken veske liker du?||Which purse do you like?|
|Hvilket hus bor du i?||Which house do you live in?|
|Hvilke bøker liker du?||Which books do you like?|
There is one more type of question that is commonly used in Norwegian, Hva slags (What kind of).
|Hva slags bøker liker du?||What kind of books do you like?|
|Hva slags filmer liker du?||What kind of films do you like?|
|Hva slags mat spiser du?||What kind of food do you eat?|
