Just saw it...

...after having read all of the Joe Nesbo books, this one is perhaps the darkest and edgiest.

Harry Hole is a pretty complicated character but Fassbinder does a good job of bringing him alive.

It's nice to see Val Kilmer but he is almost unrecognizable.

And it's nice to see all of the Norwegian buildings and snowy landscape described in the book that I could only imagine.

The problem is that the film is structured a lot like the book which jumps from place to place but without all of the narrative detail of the book.

If I hadn't read the book first, I would have had a difficult time following the film and understanding who all the people are.

I enjoyed the film but I'd give it a C+.
