"Hvem tog skylden?"

Translation:Who took the blame?

July 27, 2017



"Tog" in the audio here sounds like "train" not "took" - same word, different pronunciation.


Can "who took the fault" work here?


Actually no. In Danish that would be fine, but in English it would not be correct. Blame and fault are slightly different. Blame is the act of feeling or implying something is somebody's fault. Something can be someone's fault without receiving the blame for it, or someone can be innocent and still receive the blame for something that is not their fault. Hope that helps.
