December 21st marks the first major American influx of Nordic crime screen adaptations with a take on The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. (Hell, even the Muppets wanted to remake the Larsson.) And now, news this week out of Hollywood is that Jo Nesbo is the official “Next Steig Larsson.”

Deadline reports that an American version of Nesbo-based TV series Occupied is being considered, as is an American film version of Headhunters and Snowman.  We previously showed how intense the trailer for the Norwegian version of Headhunters looked, but do you think American TV and film producers can capture the cold detachment essential to the material, or are you reserving judgment until after December?

    I am absolutely thrilled to see that more Nesbo might be coming our way. The Headhunters clip looks awesome, and I love his books. So, so excited!
