Author Jo Nesbo has sold millions of novels, but while his works have been made into Scandinavian TV shows and movies, he’s only just now making the jump to Hollywood. It’s with an adaptation The Snowman, featuring Nesbo most popular character, detective Harry Hole.
Michael Fassbender is set to play the main character, and now the first picture of him in the role has arrived via Total Film.
Joe Nesbo’s novel follows Oslo detective Hole, a loose cannon who is investigating the disappearance of a woman, whose pink scarf is found wrapped around a sinister-looking snowman. The hope is that this will be the start of a franchise, as Hole has been part of numerous Nesbo books. Rebecca Ferguson, J.K. Simmons, Chloë Sevigny, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Val Kilmer, James D’Arcy, and Toby Jones also star, with Tomas Alfredson directing. The film is due out in November.
