Moreover, despite just being released, The Purity of Vengeance is currently just one spot off entering the top 10 grossing films in Denmark, a list that includes films produced inside and outside of Denmark.

Second place in the 2018 Danish Box Office was claimed by The Way to Mandalay, which had its world premiere earlier this year at the Göteborg International Film Festival.

Rasmus Bjerg's portrayal of this popular singer-songwriter has attracted almost 410,000 viewers since March. Third place was claimed by one of Denmark’s literary landmarks, A Fortunate Man, which was adapted into a film by the acclaimed director Bille August. Starring Esben Smed, the film brought in just under 400,000 admissions since its release at the end August.
