Mystery Bytes: Anne Holt's Hanne Wilhemsen TV series

From the Hollywood Reporter:

Graham King (Port Royal at FX, Dreamland at Lifetime and Hurt People at Cinemax) has closed a deal to develop Anne Holt’s Hanne Wilhelmsen series, which includes eight novels. The detective drama project has not yet been shopped to networks.

Scandinavian noir has been a fertile ground for adaptation coming off of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. Holt, who has sold upward of 6 million copies around the world, will serve as an executive producer, alongside producer Anne Thomopoulos (Rome, Generation Kill) and literary agent Niclas Salomonsson.

In addition to her collection of novels, the Oslo-based author and one-time journalist worked for the Oslo Police Department before founding a law firm and serving as Norway’s Minister for Justice.
