One of the best. Not one boring line.

This is book 7 of the Harry Hole (pronounced as Hoe-lay) series by Jo Nesbo.

Fast-paced book and a very good read.

Movie adaptation was made but movie was a poor adaptation .

Having read most of Jo Nesbo's books, I was glad to catch up with this one.The twists, the turns and all the gruesome details were there as Harry Hole unravels the case with links to the past.

I've never read any Jo Nesbo novels until I picked this one up. I enjoyed the book, however, there were lots of characters that made it a little difficult to follow, but otherwise it was an enjoyable suspense/thriller novel. I don't know if the translation was perfectly on par (it never really is), but again, it was fun following along attempting to crack the case of who is "The Snowman" (?).

This book had so many characters it was hard to keep up. Also, the author would go from one to another events in same paragraph.

My first Jo Nesbo novel, but not my last. If you like murder mysteries, give this one a try.

Nesbo is a great writer, I found out after reading I think his third Harry Hole novel that I should start from the beginning and that is what I did.
One novel leads to another with characters going from one book to another.
It's been fun, Nesbo has been good, I would highly recommend the Harry Hole books.
They will keep you going for weeks, it's like 8-9 books intertwined.
A very good read, Nesbo's Harrry Hole novels.

The end of this book was ridiculous. I enjoy the Harry Hole series. This one just got silly at the end.

The police investigation into the disappearance of a woman leads the Oslo police to a bizarre and frightening murder scene. The victim is found in the snowy forest, with part of her body attached to a snowman. In charge of the case, Inspector Harry Hole comes to suspect this case relates to other missing women cases--more specifically, missing mothers--over a period of time. And he believes a serial killer now exists. Furthermore, he is concerned after earlier receiving a riddling and ominous letter about the appearance of the `snowman.` Obsessed and looking gaunt, Harry plods through the case amidst working with a sharp, new female partner and rekindling an old yet complicated romantic relationship. Jo Nesbø`s novel is undiplomatically dark and thrilling.
