“This something like a mix of Thursday Murder Club and The Da Vinci Code,” Osman promises.

The writer claims that he has been looking for a book for a long time that would combine the humor, sophistication of Thursday Murder Club ”and truthfulness, like The Da Vinci Code.

Recall that Osman, who sold the rights to the film adaptation of his first novel to Steven Spielberg, undertook to write four more novels from the Thursday Murder Club series – the first was released in 2020 and broke sales records in the UK. The second novel saw the world last year and was also at the top of the fiction chart. The third will be published this September.

As for Dan Brown's original novel, it has sold 84 million copies. A film adaptation that followed a couple of years later grossed $760 million at the box office. Then two full-length sequels and a serial prequel were released.

As the ProShoKino editors reported, the Vikings star will play in the Black Snow detective series.
