Though no match for The Return Of The King's still massive 103 prints, the new release of Annette K. Olesen's In Your Hands (Forbrydelser) saw a solid opening on its 33 prints attracting 15,046 admissions.

The drama about faith and forgiveness set in a woman's prison, which screens in the main competition at next month's Berlin Film Festival, received some of the best reviews a local film has had for some time. It would have been a very hard sell without them.

In its sixth week The Return Of The King has now passed 1m admissions - representing about one fifth of the Danish population. The limited releases of Denzel Washington-starrer Out Of Time, Woody Allen's Anything Else and Ridley Scott's Matchstick Men all failed to make it into top spots.
