My info admittedly being derived from a Danish detective TV series (Rejseholdet - "The Unit"), but the program gives the impression that the stories are at least based on actual events. At the end of the episode they give the sentence that each of the murderers got - and it usually seems to be 8 years - sometimes 12. Anyone from Denmark know if murder sentences are actually that short? I knew that Norway, Sweden, and Denmark were soft on criminals - but this seems absurdly easy on murderers. If you're gonna kill someone, it would seem best to try to get them to Denmark first - rather than say, Texas, where you would get a death sentence if you were caught.
