The Snowman follows elite crime squad detective Harry Hole (Fassbender) who investigates the disappearance of a victim on the first snow of winter. He fears an elusive serial killer, who calls himself the Snowman Killer, may be active again. “The only thing we know for sure is that he’s playing games with us,” says Fassbender’s character in the trailer above.

With the help of a brilliant recruit (Ferguson), Harry must connect decades-old cold cases to the brutal new one in hopes of outwitting this unthinkable evil before the next snowfall.

Working Title’s Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner produced the film with Piodor Gustafsson and Robyn Slovo. Exec producers are Nesbo, Martin Scorsese, Niclas Salomonsson, Alfredson, Liza Chasin and Amelia Granger.

Can’t wait to see this movie! I’m already sitting on the edge of my seat. 🙂
