Do Danish voters get the government a majority prefer?

I have a new working paper out (in a preliminary version), dealing with "election inversions" in Danish elections/government formations. That is: Do Danish voters get the government(-coalition) a majority wants? One would think so, but I show that there are (at least) two types of voting paradoxes that may manifest themselves and lead to election inversions, where a majority of the voters vote for parties supporting one government, but where the other side wins. I show that
one or the other of these two have manifested themselves in at least two Danish elections/government formations (1971, 1990).

Are there more examples?
