WATCH: Why Michael Fassbender wants to play detective role


LONDON – Michael Fassbender (X-Men series) and Rebecca Ferguson (Mission Impossible – Rogue Nation) lead an all-star cast of a terrifying thriller — “The Snowman.”

Directed by Tomas Alfredson, the movie is based on Jo Nesbo’s global bestseller. The film was shot in Norway in its entirety and showcases the dramatic winter landscape of the cities of Oslo and Bergen. 

“The Snowman” tells the story of an elusive serial killer and a detective, who is determined to track him down. 

German-born Fassbender plays detective Harry Hole, who is dubbed as Scandinavia’s Sherlock Holmes. In an interview with ABS-CBN News Europe, he talked about why he has always wanted to play a detective, how he prepared for the role, and working with the Scandinavian director Tomas Alfredson. 

Ferguson, who was recently seen in the sci-fi film “Life,” plays Katrine Bratt. In the movie, she was a new recruit to help Hole in putting together the jigsaw puzzle in the viscous murders in the city. 

She talked about why she liked the character she played and what she learned from the director, among others. 

“The Snowman” is the seventh book in Jo Nesbo’s best-selling Harry Hole series. So it was an exciting challenge for Tomas Alfredson (Let the Right One In, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy) to do a book-to-screen adaptation of a story that has already established a global following. 

Alfredson discussed his filming style for this project, how he pieced together so many complex characters for his visual narrative of the psycho-thriller, and more.
