Indeed. Danske Bank is infamous for their 200 billion € money laundry scheme.

Sounds like something is rotten in the state of Denmark.

Yeah corruption is running rampant in Denmark but no one cares because we're too wealthy for it to have a noticable effect.

People from all countries say this about their countries. Still haven't seen evidence showing Denmark is bad with this compared to other countries. Meh.

It is not bad compared to other countries, but laundering 200 billion € is still really bad.

Don’t believe this cringelord. Everything is fine in Denmark and we have one of the world’s lowest rates of corruption.

But this is reddit and we believe everything is rotten, governments are all fucked and le capitalism

That’s not true. We may have the lowest rate of corruption compared to other countries, but we still have a lot of corruption. Politicians have been caught with their tax frauds in more than one instance.

So.. It is true?

I meant it’s not true that everything is fine in Denmark. Sorry. I should had specified

I'm pretty sure those 'clean' nations are just better at covering up their corruption. When you have a team of first class lawyers, accountants and advisors, it's easy to hide your tracks. Meanwhile poorer countries' corruption crimes are just sloppy or too brazen

True, and like the guy said, we are too wealthy to notice or care about it.

It was still the largest money laundering scheme in the world, the Baltic branch head committed suicide over it (or was murdered, who knows).

Unless you ask a Swede, then they start pointing out lots of things.

It's a famous line from Shakespeare - and as others have said, Denmarks probably one of the least corrupted countries in the world - though .. probably still fairly corrupt

Finally someone not completely ignorant. Most danes will go "There's no corruption in Denmark". Which is exactly the reason corruption runs to unhindered and unnoticed.
