The Snowman

Detective Harry Hole (Michael Fassbender) investigates the disappearance of a woman whose pink scarf is found wrapped around an ominous looking snowman. Adapted from Jo Nesbø's best-selling novel of the same name from his Harry Hole series.

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

A production that seems to have been second-, third- and fourth-guessed at every turn, and bears the manifold scars and stitches of on-the-fly rethinking.

This intro to a new big-screen detective never quite gels, despite Fassbender's best efforts. Too unremarkable to leave you anything but cold.

The tension dissipates in a tangle of muddled subplots, sluggish pacing and some strange decisions from Tomas Alfredson. The result isn't a Bone Collector, never mind a Se7en.

For all its high-calibre talent mix, The Snowman is a largely pedestrian affair, turgid and humourless in tone.

If you're a tragic for the genre, The Snowman will scratch your itch.

A case of a missed opportunity. It references all the right films, but The Snowman comes off as a pale imitation.
