The new release of stuntman-turned-filmmaker Lasse Spang Olsen's action comedy The Good Cop fared better with audiences than critics, but with an admission screen average of 476 on its high 60 prints, it was unable to topple Nordisk Film's hit animated film Terkel In Trouble from the top spot.

Olsen's previous two films in the genre, In China They Eat Dogs (1999) and Old Men In New Cars (2002), were scripted by the prolific Anders Thomas Jensen and performed very well with 214,907 and 337,098 admissions respectively, whereas Jolly Roger (2001), which he wrote himself, attracted just 98,374.

Tim Burton's Big Fish slipped into fourth, while Bjoern Runge's Swedish award-winner Daybreak had a somewhat disappointing opening at 17.
