The Snowman


The night the first snow falls a young boy wakes to find his mother gone. He walks through the silent house, but finds only wet footprints on the stairs. In the garden looms a solitary figure: a snowman bathed in cold moonlight, its black eyes glaring up at the bedroom windows. Round its neck is his mother's pink scarf. Inspector Harry Hole is convinced there is a link between the disappearance and a menacing letter he received some months earlier. As Harry and his team delve into unsolved case files, they discover that an alarming number of wives and mothers have gone missing over the years. When a second woman disappears Harry's suspicions are confirmed: he is a pawn in a deadly game. For the first time in his career Harry finds himself confronted with a serial killer operating on his turf, a killer who will drive him to the brink of insanity. A brilliant thriller with a pace that never lets up, "The Snowman" confirms Jo Nesbo's position as an international star of crime fiction. Hide synopsis

This book, as all the ones by Jo Nesbo, is simply riveting; it grabs you from the first page right to the end. Twists, turns, suspense is what this mystery is all about and when one page is finished the urge to keep reading is simply an urge that is hard to control. I wish Jo Nesbo would write a book a month!


Another Winner for Nesbo and Harry Hole

by junglechef on Oct 13, 2011

I have been unable to stop reading this series since I first picked up Nemesis and had to read backward to get them all in order. I went back to Redbreast and have continued forward. Nesbo is a great crime writer and Harry Hole is a great character. The plots are sinuous and compelling and the characters well drawn, I love this series!
