The Snowman film trailer has arrived…

Michael Fassbender, Rebecca Ferguson, Charlotte Gainsbourg and J.K. Simmons star in The Snowman, a terrifying thriller from director Tomas Alfredson (Let the Right One In, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy), based on Jo Nesbo’s global bestseller.

As Harry Hole (Fassbender) investigates the disappearance of a victim on the first snow of winter, he fears an elusive serial killer may be active again.

The Snowman is produced by Working Title’s Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner (The Theory of Everything, Les Misérables), as well as Robyn Slovo (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy) and Piodor Gustafsson (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo).

A Working Title Films production—in association with Another Park Film—the thriller is executive produced by Nesbo, Niclas Salomonsson, Martin Scorsese, Alfredson, Liza Chasin and Amelia Granger.

The film was shot entirely on location in Norway in the cities of Oslo and Bergen and the area of Rjukan.

Jo Nesbo to publish retelling of Shakespeare’s Macbeth

Jo Nesbo, the internationally bestselling author of the Harry Hole series, is set to take on one of Shakespeare’s darkest tragedies in 2018.

Set in an unidentified, rainy northern town, Nesbo’s Macbeth pits the ambitions of a corrupt policeman against loyal colleagues, a drug-depraved underworld and the pull of childhood friendships.

‘A thriller about the struggle for power, set both in a gloomy, stormy crime noir-like setting and in a dark, paranoid human mind,’ said Nesbo of Macbeth. ‘A main character who has the moral code and the corrupted mind, the personal strength and the emotional weakness, the ambition and the doubts to go either way… Macbeth does not feel too far from home.’

Nesbo joins acclaimed and bestselling authors  including Anne Tyler, Tracy Chevalier and Margaret Atwood, in writing fresh versions of Shakespeare’s works for the Hogarth Shakespeare project.

Becky Hardie, who acquired Nesbo’s Macbeth for the Hogarth series, said that, ‘From the very start we wanted the Hogarth Shakespeare to surprise and excite readers of all kinds from all over the world,’ and that, ‘having an international thriller writer of Jo Nesbo’s stature and popularity on board is the perfect realisation of that wish.’

‘We can’t wait to see what Jo does with Shakespeare’s murderous play,’ said Hardie, Deputy Publishing Director at Chatto & Windus/Hogarth.

Jo Nesbo’s Macbeth will be published on 5th April 2018.
