Oscar-nominated director Lasse Hallstrom (The Cider House Rules) will direct his first Swedish film in 24 years, taking on the adaptation of best selling crime novel The Hypnotist by Lars Kepler.
“In the novel, Detective Linna investigates a grisly triple homicide where the only survivor, a young boy, is too traumatized to testify. Linna convinces a famous psychologist, against his better judgment, to hypnotize the boy, setting off a terrifying chain of events.”
The film, which Hallstrom will begin shooting this winter, is the first in a planned franchise based on Kepler’s Detective Joona Linna series, which are most successful Swedish crime novels worldwide after Stieg Larsson’s “Millennium” trilogy.
