The subtitle to this list is only a small exaggeration. Denmark is a small country, and for a while Mikkelsen was in some danger of being in every Danish film ever made.
Fortunately, he was also in demand elsewhere. His personal attractions are obvious, but bewildering: at some angles, the most beautiful thing you ever saw, and at others, the victim of a tragic cosmetic surgery accident. He tends to play sensitive outsiders, rebels, foreigners, and loners, which is suitable, since he is usually acting in a foreign language.
And did I mention he has a very fair claim to being the best actor working today? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TdF0ZLnpSI4
DO YOUR PART: ask VPL for more MM films! I Am Dina, Prag (Prague), Bleeder, Shake It, Monas Verden come to mind.
