another book turned novel

I am a big fan of the Department Q novels by Jussi Adler-Olsen. Tonight I got to watch the movie made from the first book in the series, The Keeper of Lost Causes. It's in Danish, but you can get it subtitled in English.
It's great! Fares Fares plays Assad, the miracle of an assistant, and looks exactly like the Assad in my imagination! While I didn't ever think of the lead character as hot, the actor who plays him makes that work.
The acting is good, and somehow these foreign movies seem to not mess with the stories so much. I give it two thumbs up AND a fist bump.
Also, if you like Scandinavian thrillers and haven't tried Adler-Olsen, get on it.


The the Danish language is called Dansk.
Thank you. I am wondering why I didn't know that. I don't think I've ever used that word!
The only reason I had to learn it is because I've had to look it up several times in order to properly use it due to conversing with people who were Danish, or had lived in Denmark. I even had to look it up again a few weeks ago (for correct spelling) because I mention it in the book I'm writing.

Also, the Canadian language is called Hockey.
My cousin's husband is Danish and they go to Denmark every year. Maybe it came up and I wasn't paying attention.
I already knew Hockey. I live in MN, remember.
I think it might be interchangeable with simply Danish, much like how the German language is called Deutsch but people mostly just say German.

Don't even get me started on "Red Wings". To name a team after a messy sex act. . .
