"The Snowman" was directed by Tomas Alfredson who is best known for his work on the films "Let the Right One In" and "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy". It has been a few years since Alfredson has directed a movie and critics are eagerly awaiting the release of "The Snowman". The movie based on the novel of the same name by author Jo Nesbø. The film adaptation follows a detective called Harry Hole as he attempts to stop a serial killers rampage. Casting includes such actors as Michael Fassbender, Rebecca Ferguson, and Val Kilmer.

Harry Hole must stop a serial killer in his tracks

Michael Fassbender plays the role of detective Harry Hole as he sets out to find a mysterious serial killer who self-proclaims himself to be "The Snowman". Hole is put on a case surrounding the disappearance of a woman which links back to the killer. Together with a new recruit, played by Rebecca Ferguson, Harry Hole must investigate both cold cases and new murders as he tries to catch "The Snowman".

The trailer of the movie shows the brutality of the murderer as Harry Hole finds the newest victim with her head removed. "The Snowman" continues to leave hints and clues throughout the film as he mocks the detective's efforts to find him. "The Snowman" taunts Harry Hole leaving snow made snowmen in plain sight letting the detective know that he is simply a pawn in "The Snowman's" game.

'The Snowman' is full of suspense and horror

The plot already adds to the sense of suspense felt by the audience as they watch Harry Hole discover the fresh kill of "The Snowman". However, the little hints left by the killer throughout adds a sense of horror to the movie as the audience waits for him to spring out of the shadows.

Michael Fassbender gives an excellent performance as the desperate police officer trying to solve what appears to be an impossible case.

Backed by Rebecca Ferguson, one has to wonder if the new recruit will fall victim to "The Snowman" as his victims are all women. This thought has obviously crossed the detective's mind as he is seen investigating alone for the majority of the movie trailer.

The snowy landscape adds to the danger of the killer as he can easily trap his prey before killing and mutilating them.

"The Snowman" is due to arrive in theaters in the US on October 20, 2017. The movie will be released in the run up to the Christmas season and is sure to change the way that the audience will think about snowmen. Fans of the novel can look forward to a real treat in the movie adaptation of "The Snowman".
