After watching Hannibal I felt like drawing a silly little thing about the type of roles Mads Mikkelsen gets in and outside of Denmark.
In English speaking movies he is either an insane badass, or a human butcher who just likes to nom rude people.
In Denmark he plays everything from insane badass, to cute confused bi guy, to priest, to human butcher who sells human meat in his shop.

Someone selling human meat supposedly happened during WW II, read about it first in "Sagan om Isfolket". He lured boys to his apartment with the promise of a meal and a bed under a roof for sex, and then killed them and sold their meat instead. No-one questioned him handling meat, blood etc. since he was a known seller of meat.
Bur one can wonder how much of the meat on the black market during that time was actually from non-human animals, and how much was human meat. Stellar opportunity for a mass-murderer to get rid of bodies.
