Danish humor warts and all!! Doghead is quite an imaginative saga that follows three generations of a wildly dysfunctional family. When the narrator visits his dying grandma, he learns that contrary to popular belief, Grandpa was not a war hero, but instead was nicknamed "Crackpot" and both before and after he escaped from a Nazi concentration camp, he was, to put it bluntly, a cheat and a liar. From here on out the real story of the family unfolds and boy what a story it is! If you enjoy English/Danish humor then you will find this funny and entertaining. I enjoyed it a lot.
