Neutron diffraction measurements and theoretical calculations of the structure factor S(k) of liquid Kr are extended to small k values (k<4 nm^-1). The results show that many-body interaction contributions have an increasing effect on S(k) as k->0, reaching at least 40% of the measured intensity. Both the phase diagram and the low-k structural data of dense Kr turn out to be closely reproduced by the hierarchical reference theory if additional many-body forces are taken into account by an augmented strength of the Axilrod-Teller triple-dipole potential. The experimental density derivative of S(k) is also used for a very sensitive test of the theories and interaction models considered here.
