it's illegal to drive a non Danish registered car in Denmark, if you live here, but a lot of people move to Germany or Sweden and commute from there, as the cars are cheaper. (there's 40km from where I live to the Swedish border and there's a bridge, so you can get there in 30-40 minutes or so.)
If you get caught driving a non Danish registered car in Denmark once it's a 100$ fine, but if you get caught doing it systematically, it's a = the value of the car, plus you have to pay the 180% car tax, so if you have a 50k car before tax, you will end up paying 150k in fines and tax.
As I mentioned previously you can flex lease a car, where you lease it without tax and then pay 1% for the tax a month, but it's only profitable, with cars worth over a 100k before tax.
