[OS X TeX] BibTeX and the year-field

This is my first post to this list.

I have just started using BibTeX and have a problem with the year- 
field when a book has been published over more years.

Cf. the following entry:

   author = 	 {Andersen, Harry},
   title = 	 {Nogle sproghistoriske Bidrag},
   journal = 	 {Acta Philologica Scandinavica},
   year = 	 {1933–1934},
   key = 	 {},
   volume = 	 {8},
   number = 	 {},
   pages = 	 {57–77},
   month = 	 {},
   note = 	 {},
   annote = 	 {}

When I write " year = {1933–1934},"  like this (I use XeLaTeX), the  
output is fine in the bibliography list, but in the actual text in  
the article the reference just says "Andersen (1934)" (I use the  
"natlib" package with the "apalike" style).

I am sure the solution is very simple, but as a newbie, I haven't  
found it:-(

Hope someone can help out.

Best regards
