Background notes: The series Inspector Danger by Werner Wejp-Olsen, is one of the few contemporary Danish comics to have international success. The series started out in either the Danish tabloid magazine Billedbladet in 1974 under the name Max Møller, and has had a history of being published by the tabloid press like Se & Hør, Ugens Rapport and Ekstrabladet. In comics, the series ran in the anthology series Seriemagasinet from 1983, until the series folded in 1984. Danger was also given his own series in 1988 (5 issues) and the series started getting sold to magazines and newspapers, both inside and outside Denmark.

Even though the series is a comic, this is not the selling point of the series. Around the World, the series is sold as crime puzzle for various puzzle magazines, e.g. the Danish magazine Tænkesport. It just happens to be a comic at the same time.
