thesnowman2

In the wake of the success of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, we’ve seen a surge of interest in Scandinavian crime fiction over the past few years. There is something about the cold, dark and sometimes desolate settings of these stories that makes them particularly compelling, and now the latest entry to get a big screen adaptation is The Snowman by Norwegian writer Jo Nesbø (Headhunters). Michael Fassbender plays a detective on the trail of a serial killer who leaves behind a snowman at each murder scene. Directed by Tomas Alfredson (Let the Right One In, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy), the movie also stars Rebecca Ferguson, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Chloë Sevigny, J.K. Simmons, Val Kilmer and Toby Jones. The Snowman hits theatres on Oct. 20th; check out the trailer after the jump and let us know what you think.
