Be warned: The trailer released today is not in English and is in ridiculously low resolution. For all those out there who are curious, take a look. Everyone else might want to count backwards until something better comes along.
Lasse Hallstrom’s The Hypnotist stars Mikael Persbrandt (The Hobbit), Lena Olin (The Ninth Gate, Chocolat), and Tobias Zilliacus (Iris).
In the movie Persbrandt plays 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 Hypnotist opens in Sweden in October, 2012.
