From executive producer Martin Scorsese, The Snowman is based on Jo Nesbo's New York Times bestselling thriller series. When an elite crime squad's lead detective (Michael Fassbender) investigates the disappearance of a victim on the first snow of winter, he fears an elusive serial killer may be active again. With the help of a brilliant recruit (Rebecca Ferguson), the cop must connect decades-old cold cases to the brutal new one if he hopes to outwit this unthinkable evil before the next snowfall.
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: A mystery that feels as mashed together and perishable as its title, The Snowman squanders its bestselling source material as well as a top-notch ensemble cast.

Muddled, dull serial killer thriller has gory violence.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that The Snowman is a crime thriller about a serial killer that's set in Oslo, Norway, and based on a novel by Jo Nesbø. It's very violent and gory, with lots of blood, dead bodies, severed limbs/heads, and more. Men fight with and hit women; in one scene, rape is suggested, and in another, a woman's naked breasts are exposed against her will. A woman deliberately drives into a frozen lake and lets herself sink, a killer uses a special gun that tightens a coil of wire around a fleshy limb, and a woman chops off a chicken's head (some blood). There's flirting and mild-to-strong sexual situations. Language is sporadic but includes uses of "f--k" and "s--t." The main character (Michael Fassbender) is said to drink too much (he wakes with a vodka bottle in his hand) and smokes cigarettes. A secondary character also drinks too much.
