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.
I enjoyed the Millennium Trilogy by Stieg Larsson and was intrigued by the Snowman with it's author Jo Nesbo being described as the next Stieg Larsson. The story had a chiller feel which was absorbing and a little disconcerting! The plot was well thought out with some great twists and turns, some guessable and some real shocks!! Very enjoyable, looking forward to the new release in 2011.
Very enjoyable, loads of twists and turns. Going to get The Leopard next.
