Thanks for sharing this Ken. Rather proves again my old complaint against Anglos constantly remaking or making everything from other cultures in their way instead of enjoying the originals. Too much of this goes on. Hope this makes more writers re think decisions like this. Last week there was an article of the great YellowBird expanding into UK....because of popularity of Scandi series/films. Personally I don’t see this as a positive even without the debacle of Brexit!

Icewineanne | 266 comments The Headhunters filmed in Norwegian, played at the Toronto Intl film fest some years ago, it was a really hot ticket and went on to win the BAFTA that year for best foreign film. When i head that they were filming The Snowman, I was looking forward to seeing it, but now I’ll take a pass. Jo Nesbo distancing himself from it says a lot.

Felt like that since it was announced. Headhunter was a good book and a very good film imo. Saw it twice.
