Jo Nesbø’s “The Snowman” On The Screen By Martin Scorsese

Now that his new 3D movie Hugo is already hitting the theaters, Academy Award Winning  director Martin Scorsese can focus on his next venture in the genre of Scandinavian Crime.

The first item in Scorsese’s to-do list: The Snowman, an adaptation of the seventh novel in Norwegian author Jo Nesbø’s popular police procedural series featuring an alcoholic cop, Harry Hole.

Apparently Nesbø had the last say in the choice of the director for the movie and that's how the blessing went to Scorsese. It is most likely though that the director shoots the movie in the U.S. as a matter of convenience.
