KILLING THE DANES
with Vivienne McKee
Killing the Danes is an amusing examination of the Nordic Noir phenomenon and asks why the Danes are 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 dark TV series and yet love to laugh at everything from Benny Hill to Monty Python?
In an attempt to shed light on this conundrum the Anglo-Danish actor/writer, Vivienne McKee, shares with the audience her unique insider knowledge of all things nordic, and attempts to explain what makes the Scandis such a humorous, miserable bunch.
