About the book: (synopsis translated by Anders Frejdh)
Bond - James Bond. For half a century, he has entertained moviegoers with a martini in his hand, a Bond girl on his side, and all kinds of bad guys in pursuit. In recent years, the Danish connections are evident in the Bond universe, film critic Jacob Wendt Jensen focuses on them in this book.

Ulrich Thomsen, Mads Mikkelsen and Jesper Christensen reveal how it's like to be a part of the hysteria that comes with a role in a Bond film. A visit to the home of the biggest Danish Bond enthusiast, and a visit to the Danish VFX company Ghost.

Agent 007 – de danske forbindelser is both an encyclopaedia and a basis for discussion - it also provides a unique insight into the series with some surprising stories. For example, what has Nina Van Pallandt from the duo Nina og Frederik to do with the world famous agent? And what happened to Cecilie Thomsen after she bedded Pierce Brosnan?
