Michael Fassbender’s next opportunity might lead him to take his turn as an infamous detective. The 12 Years A Slave actor is in early talks to play Harry Hole, Jo Nesbo’s signature detective, in The Snowman. The seventh book in its series depicts Detective Hole looking for answers in a missing person’s case where the disappearance of a Norwegian mother might be linked to the trail of a serial killer.

Martin Scorsese was originally attached to direct the feature, but after he dropped out, Tomas Alfredson has replaced him. No release date has currently been announced.
