Killing The Danes 2

London Toast Theatre


Killing the Danes – The 2nd Attempt is a follow-up to Vivienne McKee’s amusing examination of the Nordic Noir phenomenon. Why are the Danes called the happiest people in the world when a viewing of just one episode of The Killing is enough to wipe the smile off anyone’s face? Why do the Nordic people write creepy crime novels and create darkly depressing TV series and yet laugh their heads off at Dirk Passer and Benny Hill ? Having lived in Denmark for more than 30 years , Vivienne is still puzzled by this conundrum and, while sharing her personal view of all things nordic, she asks the audience to assist her in dissecting what makes the Scandis such a miserable, humorous bunch of vikings.
