The Snowman – Jo Nesbø
The 7th entry in Jo Nesbo’s Harry Hole crime fiction series, The Snowman is the first to be adapted into a film. It is the second book by the Norwegian writer to receive a film adaptation.
The Snowman was first published in 2007 and follows Harry Hole as he tracks a serial killer targeting married women and the link between their murders is a snowman.
The book was very well received. However, the movie adaptation by director Tomas Alfredson got mostly negative reviews. The director explained that they didn’t get to film 10 – 15% of the script which caused them to have to put together most of the film in the editing room with a lot of the story missing.
