Hej friends

What do we do now?  No more Borgen on TV, still months till the Eurovision final.  Ah well, we are planning to watch the
award winning DNB commercial on repeat and dream of days when the box was full of Scandi-noir dramas.  Come back, Wallander, all is forgiven. 

Well, actually, you don’t have to wait that long, after all:  BBC is going to start showing the Danish/Swedish drama The Bridge soon, so cancel all your Saturday nights out and stay at home, eat herring and marvel at The Bridge, a 10-part Danish/Swedish co-production where the initial murder victim is discovered bang in the middle of the road link between the two countries. 

Are Danes that easy to annoy?

Some of us are Danes and we know this is true.  We see it because we’re Danish ex-pats, looking back to our country through a window tinted with British-ness.  It isn’t always pretty, but it is usually quite funny.

Nobody’s worked out how to annoy the Norwegians yet.

Liqourice:  The Scandinavian black stuff

We love it.  The stronger, the saltier, the better.  We feed it to our kids, too.  The rest of the world looks on as we chew our way through the saltiest liqourice on the planet. 

Most of all, we love feeling salty liqourice to unsuspecting non-Scandies.  That is the most fun of all.

This week, the world’s first Liqourice Festival takes place in Copenhagen.  Imagine a whole weekend, totally liqourice flavoured?  Heaven.

There will only be one winner and no, you cannot swap your prize for a tin of beans/hard cash/a trip to the Maldives.  No cash value.
