The Ketchup Effect (Hip Hip Hora!), the feature debut from newcomer Terese Fabik, didn't manage to dent the strong run of either The Return Of The King or The Last Samurai, but on its 61 prints the Sandrew Metronome release still served a much better screen average than either of them.
The film is a coming-of-age drama about 9th grader Sofie, who unfairly gets a reputation for being a whore after she passes out at a party. It screened at last week's Gothenburg Film Festival where it picked up the Canal+ Award.
The Young Jönsson Gang At Summer Camp (Lilla Jonssonligan Pa Kollo) moved down to fourth, but still retained a solid screen average, even better than the new release of The Human Stain, which only made it to 12th on the chart.
The local Berlin competition entry, Daybreak, again managed to move up the chart and now rests on seventh, one place above Sweden's Oscar nominee Evil, which also went up the chart after last week's nomination.
