I'm a bit confused here. If bjørn is taking "en" in this sentence, why is "Det" being used instead of "Den"?

"It," when used by itself at the beginning of a sentence, can always be "Det," regardless of the gender of the noun that follows. "Den" must be a masculine/feminine noun.

When to use "de" "det" and "den".
