"1015 København K: Et kærligt og kritisk portræt af Kongehuset” written by former Billedbladet (and freelancing for Ekstrabladet) journalist Trine Villemann, is being published on Monday by Ekstrabladet's publishing company. The topic of the book is the Danish royal family, and judging by other interviews with the author - she takes great pride in stepping away from Billedbladet's "shiny pink" view of the world - and embraces the fact that she has been called one of the most "giving the subject one in the face"-journalists in Denmark.

"Even if I have enough material to end the monarchy, I'm not after doing it," says the author - Metroxpress - Ny bog blotter kongehuset

Well isn't that generous of her.

Though my Danish is still at the beginning level it's too bad this book won't be translated into English anytime soon... I would love to read it.

Trine Villemann's Book

Just read about a new book by Trine Villemann about the Danish crown prince. The book isn't here in Australia yet.
Is Trine Villemann a respected author? Does anyone know about this book?
Sorry if there is a thread about this already. If there is, could the moderator please delete this one.

I heard the author writes that Frederick should have married his ex girlfriend! If this is true - How trashy. Mary is a sophistocated woman/Australian/Princess and will rise above such nonsense.

That is a very good remark when it comes to advertising for the book - I doubt she has got material to end the monarchy - after all the queen isn't a murderer, prince Henrik isn't the chairman of a paedophile association, Frederik isn't planning a coup d'stat, Mary isn't participating in secret negotiations with the australians in order for Australia to occupy Denmark Joachim isn't pouring out poisonous chemicals to the enviroment and I doubt Marie has joiend forces whith the frence weaponindustry in order to bombarde Chopenhagen.

My guess is, that the only material the author has got, is material showing the CP Couple as ordinary human beings.

Do they not realise that as they publish these articles and books, that Mary and Frederik are being photographed arm in arm at official enagagements or caught laughing at a common amusement...

I'd very much like to hear (though of course not likely, least of all possible) what HM The Queen has to say about the subject matter at hand.

Yes she mention's that, find that not very nice
I dont know if all her information is a 100% true but I personally do believe that in every marriage there are up's & down's , its normal but what I see is that Frederik enjoy's being in Mary's company & sometimes when Frederik is away Mary does seem/look lonely. Though even when the book is out in english, im not wasting my $$ on it
at the end of this all, seems that the author prefers Frederik to have married a Dane & not happy with a foreigner

Why Fred should not have wed Mary: author

CROWN Prince Frederik should not have married Mary Donaldson but stayed with his former flame, a sensational new book on the Danish royal family says - read article here

I am sure the husband and children of his former flame don't agree

Maybe the author is a member of the opposition. Is the number of people who oppose the monarchy in Denmark small or fairly large?

I read that the royal family always marry foreigners. Surely the author knows that. She is just making money.

It seems to me this writer is just trying to stir up trouble where none exists, chipping away at Mary and Frederick, at the Royal Family, planting all sorts of scenarios. Whatever the "might have beens" both Frederick and this girl moved on a long time ago. This book doesn't deserve shelf space.

It is very, very small. Their is no debate in Denmark about whether we shall continue to be monarchy or not. We are a monarcy, has been so for 1000 thousand years and will probably be so for the next 1000 years. There is a very small extremly leftwing party who is against the monarcy, but they dont get much votes.

The author was a royal reporter for Billed Bladet then moved on to another magazine Ekstrabladet, again, discussing the latest happenings with the DRF.

If this person where a member of the opposition I highly doubt they would work for a paper that supports (i.e. Billed Bladet) the DRF as well as freelance for Ekstrabladet.

Nonetheless, it would be interesting to read the authors old articles from both magazines to see her tone towards the DRF. Of course, the editors of both mags could have steered her voice/tone towards their potential audience thus losing the authors perspective a bit.

I hope that all of you who are commenting on these pages are not contributing to this "author" by buying the book.
If people buy such crap as I see it, then you accept this type of journalistic.
I really hate this type of gossip

Trine Villeman is a freelancer and she seems to know how to make money: launch a book about royals/celebrities, use unnamed sources and then appeal to the readers' most base cravings for gossip. How surprising that she launches her book just before the Christmas sales starts

Berlingske Tidende comments on her book here Bogbjerget - Kultur - and this newspaper's conclusion is that 'Trine Villemann documents absolutely nothing in her book. N o t h i n g.' The complaints are especially focused on the use of 'sources' which are all apparently undocumented (there are even quotes from a source's late mother )

The article continues that the book is 'boring like hell and as predictable as the changing of the guards', and concludes by saying that one may wonder if anyone is capable of producing a worse book than this mess.

Assumptions shouldn't be made about others motives for buying the book. If 1015 København is ever translated in English I would purchase it. Why? I'm intereseted to see what the author has to say... her perspective. It doesn't mean that I accept her argument and so forth. It clearly means that I am willing to hear both sides of the debate; hence, I am open to hear what anyone has to say about the DRF, then I will make my own conclusions.

I completely disagree with you.

Is it better to blind oneself to others perspective? To ignore the other side; to pretend it doesn't exsist?

Or is better to hear all sides of the argument then come to your own -- not influenced by anyone mind you -- conclusion on a particular subject (this one being the DRF and their inner workings)? The latter is my belief.

Essentially, I would by the book!

She will sell a few copies here in Australia, I think, but people are not very interested in the Danish royal family here. Maybe in Tasmania.

Then I would say she is well-informed. I mean she knows him. There are articles in women's magazines here about how he is out a lot with his friends.

I'm more interested in the upcoming wedding.
