In 2002, Danish publisher Forum reissued two of Ian Fleming's James Bond 007 novels, "Goldfinger" and "On Her Majesty's Secret Service", in new Danish translations. As a precursor to the reissues, Forum published this Danish first edition of Simon Winder's quote book "My Name's Bond, James Bond". All of the excerpts from Fleming's novel were newly translated for this edition by Jette Røssell, and because the quotes were pulled from the unabridged English editions, "Mit navn er Bond ... James Bond" in several cases presents the most complete Danish translations of Fleming's works to date.

The Danish edition also has a somewhat flawed postscript by Ole Knudsen which briefly summarizes the main contributors to each of the James Bond films.
