The first stills from Lasse Hallstrom’s The Hypnotist have hit the web and while they look appropriately bleak, they also look pretty good.
Mikael Persbrandt (The Hobbit), Lena Olin (The Ninth Gate, Chocolat) and Tobias Zilliacus (Iris) all star in the film with Persbrandt playing Detective Linna who, “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 “is the first in a planned series of eight Joona Linna novels from Lars Kepler – a pseudonym for Swedish husband and wife authors Alexander Ahndoril and Alexandra Coelho Ahndoril. The third novel in the series was recently published in Sweden. Svensk and Sonet have optioned all eight books in the series for feature adaptations.”
The film’s theatrical bow in Sweden is planned for October, 2012. Hit the jump for the pics.
