There are losts of corruption and crime in Denmark. It is just as bad as any place else.

Well i don't know what you are talking about when saying walking alone in the daytime is 100% safe because just recently i was mugged by a pack of teenagers just after walking out the door.
#Anonymous on Apr 22, 2014 :
This is so funny, Denmark is about the safest country to live in.
You shouldn't worry too much about being mugged - and being robbed or attacked is almost impossible.
I would say walking alone in daylight is 100 % safe and by night, well let's say 95 %.
The popular TV dramas is all fiction!
It would be a good idea to do some research and background check of the sources! People being so worried and scarred in Denmark as listed above don't come from Denmark that's for sure.
And about corruption: according to Tranparency International we are second to none!
#Mandrill on Apr 20, 2014 :
Safest place... but not according to the rise in Danish murder dramas, the killing etc etc. I'm scared to go now.
#Carsten on Jan 24, 2014 :
Lowest corruption rate in the world!
#Alexander on Jan 23, 2014 :
"We have no Corruption in Denmark" - what an extremely bold statement.
#Carsten on Oct 15, 2012 :
Corruption? We have no Corruption in Denmark...and out crimerate is low... only 62% safety at night? It should be closer to 90
