Considering her upbringing, that should not be a surprise.
Vestager grew up in the small town of Olgod, near Denmark’s windswept west coast.
The zeal with which Vestager has approached her job has led some to complain that she is on a moral crusade.
She often uses biblical terms to explain her decisions – invoking Adam and Eve when talking about greed, for example.
Its 900 staff are tasked with investigating mergers, cartels and state aid for companies, such a tax breaks.
Her parents were Lutheran pastors who served the community day and night.
From them Vestager learned the importance of engaging in society, if not socialising – to this day, she dislikes chit-chat.
Vestager was admired in Denmark for her principles and steel – Sidse Babett Knudsen, who played the fictional prime minister Birgitte Nyborg in the television series Borgen, used Vestager as one of her models.
Yet her political career seemed to be drifting by 2011, when the conservative government called an election.
