Haplogroup K is a relatively old group, derived from Haplogroup R.  Living individuals are widespread in Eurasia, the Near East, and northern Africa.  About 6% of Europeans are Haplogroup K; of these, about 60% are subclade K1a.

In the trivia department:  The oldest known Haplogroup K individual is Ötzi, the iceman whose frozen body was found in the Alps in 1991.  Katie Couric is also K.

Mutations are reordered (not in strict numerical order) for ease of comparison.  Those common to Haplogroup K are shown here and below in tables cells with a yellow highlight:

Your project admin  recommends joining William Hurst's mtDNA Haplogroup K project, which can be done directly using the "Join Projects" button on your FTDNA member page (after clicking the icon, scroll down to the "mt Haplogroups" listing and choose "K1").
So far, we have seven Danish Demes project members who are some form of Haplogroup K:

This individual has over a thousand matches in HVR1, but less than a dozen in her combined HVR1+HVR2 results; none (yet) in this project.  William Hurst informs me that the 498 deletion defines K1c, but that coding-region mutations define K1c1, so you can't tell the two subclades apart by testing only the hypervariable regions.

Our subjects have over 2400 matches in HVR1, but just over 100 when combined with HVR2.  Their Full Genetic Sequences do not match.

This individual has four HVR1+HVR2 matches in the FTDNA database, along with one FGS match.  He has two full matches at MitoSearch, one with someone whose earliest known matrilineal ancestor was from southernmost Sweden (Glimåkra, Kristianstads län, now Skåne), an area historically part of Denmark, the other with an individual with an earliest known origin in Malmöhus, Sweden.  His mutations match a variant of K1c2 defined by William Hurst (as of 22 June 2010).
