Karl David Sebastian Dencik (born 31 October 1974) is a Swedish-Danish actor.


Dencik was born in Stockholm, Sweden, but the family moved to Denmark when he was very young. As a teenager he spent one year studying in Brazil, where he discovered Capoeira the Brazilian martial art that combines elements of dance and music. The dance aspect of Capoeira made him take an interest in theatre. He later moved back to Sweden and attended Stockholm Academy of Dramatic Arts. He lives with a lawyer who works in Copenhagen,. He uses Denmark as his base, but since his work takes him to Sweden he also has an apartment in Stockholm.

His father is Lars Dencik, Professor of Social Psychology at Roskilde University, born 1941 of Jewish parents from Slovakia (then part of Czechoslovakia), who escaped the Holocaust by finding refuge in Sweden.

Set against the backdrop of the 1976 election, the story is centred on delinquent teenager Iris (Sofia Karemyr), who is sent to live in a juvenile home. She meets Sonja (Josefin Asplund) there and the two regularly slip away for adventures in the city. Together they are recruited to the prostitution ring operated by Dagmar Glans (Pernilla August), a madam well-known to the authorities. Dagmar's clients are mostly rich and powerful men, including senior politicians of the day. She becomes the subject of a police investigation led by a young vice officer, John Sandberg (Simon J. Berger). Sandberg soon discovers Glans has powerful clients but also finds his investigation hampered by his superiors and his life threatened by sinister figures. Police break up the prostitution ring but the powerful clients avoid being named in the scandal and Dagmar's trial concludes with her receiving a suspended sentence before Iris can testify about being an underage prostitute. In the aftermath of the trial, Sandberg is killed in a hit and run incident and his report into the affair is classified by the newly elected government. The film ends with Iris running away from the juvenile home, her ultimate fate ambiguous.
