Denmark is the country of the moment. Recently named the happiest nation in the world, it's the home of The Killing and Noma, the world's best (and most eccentric) restaurant. We wear their sweaters, watch their thrillers, and covet their cool modern design, but how much do we really know about the Danes themselves? Part reportage, part travelogue, How to Be Danish fills in the gaps -- an introduction to contemporary Danish culture that spans politics, television, food, architecture, and design.
