The things you own end up owning you

The book I bought is written by Lena Sundström, Swedish journalist and author. Love her books, because of her witty pen. This book - "The Happiest People in The World" - is about my native country, and the title is of course a sarcastic joke. The book deals with integration, the Danish interpretation of the concept freedom of expression, the less jovial caring for others and our fear of being engulfed by 'the others'. ....
Lena moved to Copenhagen for 3 months to find out if we Danes really are the happiest people in the world, or if it is a myth. She pin-points several things that I too have experienced on my annual holiday trips 'home' .... But she points them out in such a sharp but humorous way, that a true Dane has got to surrender....
