Something Rotten - the Fall of the Danish Monarchy
"Intelligent humor. Witty "historical" account of the fall of the Danish monarchy with numerous laugh-out-loud moments. Memorable characters and plenty of clever twists and hilarious dialogue. Highly recommended." Review on Goodreads.
A counter-factual satirical historical novel
It’s the summer of 1992. The football-infatuated Kingdom of Denmark has by chance been invited to the European Football Championships. In midst of thus instigated great national joy, however, the rain-stricken country’s ruler, misanthropic, ill-tempered, and melancholic King Frederik decides to abdicate and leave his tiresome royal reins to his daughter, Crown Princess Carolina.
But the tiny royal family’s plan for a peaceful succession is thwarted by rebellious Republicans Anonymous. They succeed in nicking the Golden Horns – the royal regalia – leaving the country in dire constitutional straits. And the 1,000-year-old monarchy is only saved, well parts of it anyway, due to a forgotten clerical error back in the day.
And yes, our old friend Marcellus was right.
There’s something rotten.
And a dark night ahead.
"In all ways a quirky book in the best of meanings - made from an author with a sound sense of humour and brillant imagination." From review on Goodreads.
