The Snowman by Jo Nesbo Optioned for Film Adaptation

The Snowman by Jo Nesbo
More information about the book

Deadline|New York is reporting that Working Title Films has optioned the film rights to The Snowman, the seventh Harry Hole mystery by Jo Nesbo. (The cover and link to the right is for the UK edition; the US edition will be published next year.)

“I’m very excited and a little worried,” the author said in a statement. “I’ve turned down offers for making movies about Harry Hole for so many years, so for me this is like putting my baby on the bus to the big city for the first time. But it feels like she’s ready for that now and I am really glad that she is going to be with a quality producer.”

Harry Hole is a police detective in Oslo (Norway) who is brought in to investigate a missing woman. When he realizes her disappearance may be related to a number of cold case crimes, he discovers he's just a pawn in a deadly game with a serial killer.
