The cast also includes Rebecca Ferguson, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Val Kilmer, Toby Jones, J.K. Simmons, Charlotte Gainsburg, Chloë Sevigny and Sofia Helin.

Working Title’s Eric Fellner and Tim Bevan produce alongside Robyn Slovo, and the Swedish producer is Piodor Gustafsson of Another Park Film. Working Title founders Bevan and Fellner acquired the rights to Nesbø’s bestseller in 2011.
