‘Living in Denmark’, a new portrait book about the country, offers readers a contemporary portrait of the Scandinavian country and its people.

It consists of 20 portraits of Danes who invite readers into their homes and private lives and share their experiences and insights.

The book contains a mix of features and interviews that are structured around universal human themes such as workplace culture, values in relationships and parenting, as well as personal matters and existential issues such as identity and body image.

It took the author, Birgitte Sonne Kristensen, five years to collect all the stories – some of which were inspired by feedback from expats living in Denmark.

The book is available both in English and Danish and can be purchased on the site livingindenmark.dk for 349 kroner.
