Scandinavian noir crime stories, “hygge” and repeated accolades as the world’s happiest people have been central points in recent years in portraits of Denmark and the Danes. But what debates are really going on in the Danish welfare state, which has been closely studied by the US presidential candidates? What relationship values are important in a country with one of Europe’s highest divorce rates? And what is life really like for Danish children, young people, families and the elderly?
Living in Denmark is a piece of contemporary history, focusing closely on life as it is lived.
In twenty features and portraits the book penetrates into areas where conversations with strangers rarely go, and gets to grips with a new and engaging way of capturing a country’s culture and the self-understanding of its people.
