Danish cannot be spoken fluently. It reads perfectly fine. In fact, nearly indistinguishable from Norwegian, but it is commonly spoken as if a good-sized potato is lodged in the throat of the speaker.

The current NATO guy is Norwegian, but the previous one was in fact Danish. So you may be right.

Indeed, this is actually the description I've heard from any and nearly all foreigners explaining how they hear danish. 
Danish apparently equal to german, while choking on a potato OR speaking swedish while trying to swallow your tongue.
Also yes, Anders Fogh Rasmussen, Danish NATO dude in question, was also our former prime minister, horribly obvious danish accent if you ask me.
CBCA->CMSA->FMVA->Ba.Sc.Math-stat->CFA1,2,3->CISI->FRM->CQF->IFoA->than what?
The goal is to write all three and four letter combinations and try to make sense of it.

The soundtrack to the Danish porn movies of the 1970s.

It looks editors/writers friends don't wish to comment on inflated manuals prices. Fair enough.

So I ordered that book on a UK website 12 days ago now, but I haven't been delivered yet..
Maybe they all went for a early siwm in the Celtic Sea. I don't know.

BEXIT, no one to process your order. They all went back to Poland or no lorry drivers. No kidding.
