The crime thriller was shortlisted for this year's Oscars and picked up seven trophies at the Danish Film Academy's Robert Awards in February.
As at the Roberts, Jakob Cedergren received Best Actor for 'The Guilty', while Best Script went to Jakob Weis for 'That Time of Year', directed by Paprika Steen. Simon Lereng Wilmont's Oscar-shortlisted 'The Distant Barking of Dogs' secured the Bodil for Best Documentary.
