Errors in geography 

Lapland is not a part of Denmark, but a region including northern parts of Sweden, Finland, Norway, and Russia. The Norwegian part of Lapland is sometimes known as "Danish Lapland" which might have confused the filmmakers. A find such as the one in the movie would stay within the country where it was found.
