The new crime-thriller The Snowman will give you the chills! 

The Snowman is directed by Tomas Alfredson, based on the novel of the same name by best selling author Jo Nesbø. The film stars Michael Fassbender, Rebecca Ferguson, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Val Kilmer and J. K. Simmons, and follows a detective who tries to find the identity of a killer who uses snowmen as his calling card.

Michael Fassbender plays Harry Hole, an elite crime squad’s lead detective who investigates the disappearance of a victim on the first snow of winter, he fears an elusive serial killer nicknamed "The Snowman" may be active again. With the help of a brilliant recruit (Ferguson), the detective must connect decades-old cold cases to the brutal new one if he hopes to outwit this unthinkable evil before the next snowfall.

Author Jo Nesbø's crime-thriller novels have become such a huge hit in Scandanavia that a Harry Hole your has been started in Oslo, Norway. The thriller is executive produced by Martin Scorsese, (who was originally slated to direct) and was shot entirely on location in Norway in the cities of Oslo and Bergen and the area of Rjukan.
