Michael Fassbender plays Harry Hole
At least they have started with one of the best: a grisly cat-and-mouse thriller played out in an atmosphere of icy dread.
Michael Fassbender plays Hole, a battle-hardened Oslo detective faced with a serial killer dubbed The Snowman because his crimes coincide with the first fall of snow.
When a missing woman’s pink scarf is found tied to a snowman, it seems the killer has struck again.
Teamed with new recruit Katrine (Rebecca Ferguson), Hole comes to realise that the case is much bigger than it appeared with a trail of murders and disappearances stretching back decades.
An efficient atmospheric potboiler but it lacks the impact of the book.
