Living with Vikings
In Living With Viking Kirsten Weiss explores Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden – individually and together. She focuses on humour, happiness and trust, but also on Jante’s Law, divorce and the special Nordic combination of down-to-earth common sense and excessive self-infatuation, which characterise the Nordic values, habits and identity – and can prove difficult for newcomers to navigate.
Living with Vikings is for anyone who was not born and bred in a Nordic country but lives and works there, or would just like a greater understanding of the Nordic values, habits and other shining hallmarks of the five Nordic countries.
The Danish version of the book is called Norden for nybegyndere.
