OSCAR nominee, Michael Fassbender, stars in the new big screen adaptation of Norwegian author, Jo Nesbø’s The Snowman, which features gritty detective Harry Hole.
One night, after the first snowfall of the year, a boy named Jonas wakes up and discovers that his mother has disappeared. Only one trace of her remains: a pink scarf, his Christmas gift to her, now worn by the snowman that inexplicably appeared in their yard earlier that day.
Harry suspects a link between the missing woman and a suspicious letter he’s received. The case deepens when a pattern emerges: over the past decade, eleven women have vanished — all on the day of the first snow.
But this is a killer who makes his own rules . . . and he’ll break his pattern just to keep the game interesting, as he draws Harry ever closer into his twisted web.
The film adaptation has been scripted by Matthew Michael Carnahan, Hossein Amini and Peter Straughan, and stars Rebecca Ferguson, J.K. Simmons, Charlotte Gainsbourg and James D’Arcy. Tomas Alfredson is in the director’s chair.
The Snowman is due for international release in October.
