Copenhagen is a mysterious city where strange and sinister things often happen. Menacing and at times darkly humorous there are echoes of Roald Dahl and Daphne du Maurier in these stories, many of which have been specially commissioned for BBC Radio 4.
From the commuter who bitterly regrets falling asleep on a late-night train in Last Train to Helsing r, to the mushroom hunter prepared to kill to guard her secret in The Chanterelles of stvig.
Here, the land of hygge ' becomes one of twilight and shadows, as canny antique dealers and property sharks get their comeuppance at the hands of old ladies in Conning Mrs Vinterberg, and ghosts go off-script in The Wailing Girl.
Deliciously dark and chilling, this is Nordic Noir at its finest.
