First Look: The Snowman
The Snowman movie trailer has landed!
Michael Fassbender (Inglourious Basterds, X-Men, Prometheus) stars as Oslo police force detective Harry Hole, a flawed, troubled officer who often disobeys orders from his superiors and flouts the rules to get results. Based on the incredible thriller by Jo Nesbo, directed by Tomas Alfredson and written by Matthew Michael Carnahan and Hossein Amini, The Snowman sees Harry investigating the disappearance of a woman whose pink scarf is found wrapped around an ominous-looking snowman.
A young boy wakes to find his mother missing. Their house is empty but outside in the garden he sees his mother’s favourite scarf – wrapped around the neck of a snowman. As Harry Hole and his team begin their investigation they discover that an alarming number of wives and mothers have gone missing over the years.
When a second woman disappears it seems that Harry’s worst suspicions are confirmed: for the first time in his career Harry finds himself confronted with a serial killer operating on his home turf.
Joining Michael Fassbender are Rebecca Ferguson (Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, The Girl on the Train), Toby Jones (Sherlock, The Witness for the Prosecution), J.K. Simmons (Whiplash, Spider-Man), Jakob Oftebro (The Bridge, Kon-Tiki) and Chloë Sevigny (Bloodline) American Horror Story).
The Snowman movie is released in cinemas in October – so if you haven’t read the book yet then now is the perfect time. Take a sneak peak at the official trailer below, and then read an extract from the novel.
