Helsingborg? "It had 108,334 inhabitants in 2017." Norrkoping? "Population (31 March 2016) • Total 137,326"

I made a new map myself, using an actual projection that exists. I like this a lot better than the Jetpunk one I was using before.

Nice update. One thing: Aalborg and Odense are in the wrong places.

They were in the right spot for me, but Helsingborg and Västeras were switched, that really confused me.

I wanted to make the answers an even 40. Denmark is the smallest of the Nordic countries by area, so it made sense.

Denmark might be the smallest by area, but the 2nd most popoulous. And the quiz is about population, so it doesn't really make sense that size would matter. It matters in other aspects though. ;)

It does matter for the purposes of this quiz because the cities are shown on the map. If there were 10 Danish cities that part of the map would be extremely cluttered.

Copenhagen's city proper doesn't only consist of Copenhagen Municpality which is what you used. It also includes Dragør, Tårnby and Frederiksberg municipality, one of which holds more than 100k people as well. So Copenhagen's city proper is actually at 794,182 as of 2020. according to this wikipedia aricle

Not sure why the Swedish names were only accepted for some of the Finnish cities. Some consistency wouldn't hurt.
