Two years later his dogme feature 'Mifune' (1999) received the Berlin Silver Bear.Since then Kragh-Jacobsen has directed features such as 'Skagerrak' (2003), 'What No One Knows' (2008) and 'The Hour of the Lynx' (2013). He has also directed TV series such as 'The Eagle' (2004), 'The Protectors' (2008), 'Follow the Money' (2016) and the internationally acclaimed political drama 'Borgen' (2010), where he served as concept director.
