This is a collection of my choice of the best books about Denmark. If you are traveling to Denmark or just have an interest in this beautiful Scandinavian country I have selected some of my top choices from the best fiction and non-fiction works set in Denmark. If you have other Danish books you would like to recommend please leave a comment at the end of the post as I am always on the lookout for new reading material!

Denmark is the birthplace of one of the most famous fairy story writers of them all –  Hans Christian Anderson. If you are visiting Copenhagen you may plan to see The Little Mermaid sculpture which  is displayed on a rock by the waterside at the Langelinie promenade in the Danish capital. She is one of the top tourist attractions for visitors to Copenhagen and of course a character from the Hans Christian Anderson fairy story of the same name!

For fans of crime fiction Denmark (and Scandinavia in general) are the home of Nordic noir books. Defined as crime fiction and television drama that typically features dark storylines and bleak urban settings Scandinavian crime fiction has grown in popularity in the last few decades. I first came upon it when I read Peter Hoeg’s novel Miss Smilla’s Feeling for Snow published in 1992 this novel was at the vanguard of Nordic noir which has since developed a huge fan base.

In my selection I have included my top choices in guide books too so not only will you be well read when you arrive in Denmark you will know exactly what you want to see!
