If the marriage has not lasted at least 3 years, the visa will become invalid at divorce.

As she has not been working in DK for at least 2 years, there is not much chance of using the rules for retaining foreign work-force either.

If she has some very special qualifications or at very well paid job (408.800/year as of 2017), she may apply for a residence permit on grounds of that.
