The movie about an elite crime squads hunt for a serial killer with such a solid cast is sentenced to a total disaster. Well, since the movie was put on the floor it didn't have enough preparation time, reports THE WRAP.

The Snowman's director has his words about the movie,

It happened very abruptly. Suddenly we got notice that we had the money and could start the shoot in London.

And they didn't have enough time to actually shoot the whole script, Alfredson claims.

Our shoot time in Norway was way too short. We didn’t get the whole story with us and when we started cutting we discovered that a lot was missing,

It’s like when you’re making a big jigsaw puzzle and a few pieces are missing so you don’t see the whole picture. 

Tomas Alfredson has directed movies like; Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, Let the Right One In, which are hailed successful.
