Nikolaj Lie Kaas was named Best Actor at the SVEND Awards for his role as Carl Mørck in The Purity of Vengeance (Journal 64). The film is Zentropa’s fourth and final instalment of the Department Q crime series based on Danish author Jussi Adler-Olsen’s thrillers.
The Award Show is a well established event in the Danish film industry. It differs from the Danish Film Academy Award Robert and the Danish Critic Association Award Bodil being the only Danish Film Award where it is the audience who decide the winner. This year’s SVEND Awards took place on August 28.
