Today is election day, and Danes finally head to the polls after four weeks of campaigning. But what have we learned so far? And while the polls point at a left wing victory, do we really have any idea what sort of government we will get. We speak to Martin Krasnik, editor-in-chief of conservative leaning Weekendavisen about why retirement and immigration are always the key issues in Danish elections, why no party has talked about fixing a tax authority that is riddled with scandal, and why it was right to call Rasmus Paludan a Nazi.
