Synopsis

Subtitled : A journey to the cultural heart of Denmark.

From Lego to Lund . . . a short introduction to the state of Denmark.

Denmark was & is the country of the moment.

Recently named the happiest nation in the world, it's the motherland of The Bridge, Borgen, and The Killing, and home to Noma, the world's best restaurant.

But though we wear their jumpers and watch their thrillers, how much do we really know about the Danes themselves?

Part reportage, part travelogue, How to be Danish is an attempt to fill in some of the gaps - an introduction to contemporary Danish culture that spans television, food, design, architecture, welfare, immigration, & politics with a chapter on the capital city Copenhagen.

External Reviews

"Breezy, but pithy. Fascinating snapshot of modern Denmark, in all its hygge glory. Good, thought-provoking insights on the travails of community-minded Danes' coming to grips with multiculturalism, being exceptional, and maintaining their core cultural values in this rapidly globalised new era." - Goodreads Review.
