What? Jo Nesbø’s brutal crime series centred around Harry Hole – Oslo’s deeply troubled but brilliant top detective – are heavy hitters in the Nordic noir crime canon, and The Snowman is arguably the best of the 11 novels. Now, it gets the big-screen adaptation treatment.
Who? Michael Fassbender plays Hole, and looks suitably on-the-edge as the tortured anti-hero, pitted against a terrifying serial killer who always appears on the day of the first snowfall. Also starring Rebecca Ferguson, expect Se7en levels of scary.
When? In cinemas October.
