Did you read the article that got everybody talking a few weeks back? (if not, read it HERE) Are we Nordics not all we’re cracked up to be?

Michael Booth, writer and journalist, currently living in Denmark (and, we can vouch, speak Danish pretty well) is not sure all is as it is cracked up to be. Well, actually, that is if you only read the article (so don’t be offended just yet).
