I love Nordic crime stories so I found this collection to be a huge let down All of the stories apart from the Friis and Kaaberbol one I found to be dull instead of dark Also, they don t feel uniquely Danish, they could take place in any large city There are some very talented Danish authors out there, but the editor neglected to add their stuff to this collection It still amazes me to this day that Helle Helle is popular in Denmark.

Kind of a mixed bag, but some of the stories were excellent.
A collection of short stories set in Copenhagen I read only a couple Moral of stories Even Denmark has lowlife scum.
