Ann Richardson sounds natural and relaxed as she delivers myriad Danish place names and words as Dorthe Nors ventures up and down the coast of Denmark. But this isn't a warm travel memoir. It's windy and cold and tinged with menace and risk. Nors visits church frescoes, isolated lighthouses, bonfires with burning witches' effigies, shipwrecks, and chemical plants--there is no hint of hygge here. Richardson excels at conveying the wildness of North Sea storm surges pounding the coast and washing away landmarks, burial grounds, and even whole towns. At times, it's a somewhat difficult listen. Nors jumps around in time and space, and Richardson doesn't give clear signals that we're moving on, so it's easy to get lost for a bit.
