Mørke sounds like murky.

My Oxford dictionary states that "murk" is probably of Scandinavian origin ("myrkr").

Danish is a Scandinavian language. The words might be related. I don't know.

Both the Scandinavian languages and english are germanic, perhaps the words are just related anyway, even if the vikings didn't bring the word over.
