At kende sandheden

Do sit down ... l've become
quite domesticated since l retired.

Sugar? Cream?
- No, thanks.

Are your queries specific or more
about my career in neurosurgery?

Oh, l'd like to hear
a bit about everything.

Actually l started in Sweden,
where l did my residency.

Then l succeeded Malmros
under Busch in Copenhagen.

And then you went to Aarhus
under Malmros a year later?

What was he like ... to work with?
Malmros? He's one of the great
stars of Danish brain surgery.

A fantastically accomplished
surgeon with the steadiest of hands.

lf a child required surgery
we were always to phone him.

He always did the children?
- Yes, always.

lt was a bit of a problem;
after all, one needed the training.

How did the patients regard him?
- They worshipped him.

Hardly surprising.
lf the pain is relieved -

- and you're given back your life -
- it is very easy to be grateful.
Malmros was an innovator.

And courageous; there are many
operations he was the first to do.
