For /etc/default/locale I see:

#  File generated by update-locale

Looking at `man update-locale` it sounds like that might be what you
want? E.g. remove the en_DK references, and then try (not tested):

  update-locale LC_TIME=en_DK.UTF-8

to just be in Denmark for datestamps?

You'll want to know what headers are being passed around, and what
redirects are happening. (Adding the trailing slash would be the first
thing I'd try.)

See the developer tools (F12, then network tab) in Firefox.
And add `-S` to your wget line to print the headers sent by HTTP servers.
