The Snowman

Harry Hole Series - A Harry Hole Novel (7)

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

Inspector Harry Hole tracks a Norwegian serial killer in this installment of Jo Nesbø’s New York Times bestselling series. Now a Major Motion Picture starring Michael Fassbender.

One night, after the first snowfall of the year, a boy named Jonas wakes up and discovers that his mother has disappeared. Only one trace of her remains: a pink scarf, his Christmas gift to her, now worn by the snowman that inexplicably appeared in their yard earlier that day.  Inspector Harry Hole suspects a link between the missing woman and a suspicious letter he’s received. The case deepens when a pattern emerges: over the past decade, eleven women have vanished—all on the day of the first snow. But this is a killer who makes his own rules . . . and he’ll break his pattern just to keep the game interesting, as he draws Harry ever closer into his twisted web. With brilliantly realized characters and hair-raising suspense, international bestselling author Jo Nesbø presents his most chilling case yet—one that will test Harry Hole to the very limits of his sanity.

From Publishers Weekly

Mar 28, 2011 – In this chilling installment in Nesb 's Insp. Harry Hole crime series (The Devil's Star, etc.), a snowman left in the front yard of Birte Becker's Oslo house is the only clue to the woman's disappearance. When Sylvia Ottersen disappears from her farmhouse soon afterward, the snowman the killer leaves behind has a gruesome addition: Sylvia's severed head. Harry, aided by Katrine Bratt, a brash new member of his team with secrets of her own, combs through past missing person cases, looking for other victims of the killer now dubbed the Snowman. Several months earlier, Harry received an anonymous letter referring to both snowmen and the Australian serial killer he'd pursued early in his career. What appeared random and bizarre then now takes on new meaning as Harry realizes the killer is taunting him. Nesb breathes new life into the serial killer subgenre, giving it a Norwegian twist and never losing his laconic hero in the process. 150,000 first printing; 6-city author tour.

Customer Reviews

The Snowman

Outstanding book! I loved the detective Harry Hole, and am now reading another book by this author. Harry seems to be a popular name (Dirty Harry, Harry Bosch) for detectives who have to fight with politically correct but incompetent bureaucratic establishment types. Loved Rakel and Oleg, and hope they will be part of Harry's life again! I'm looking forward to the release of this author's 2017 book and can't wait to read another Harry Hole thriller!

My favorite so far..

This is the best harry hole novel so far, it is fast paced, still has the typical twists and turns, but it doesn't slow down like some of the previous ones have done. It was pretty clear where this was going to go in the end rather early on, but not who was going to be the bad guy doing it..

Great until snowman becomes too predictable

Worthy successor of Agatha until it becomes too predictable who Snowman is, after that the thrill is gone, and feels like words written to fill pages and explain Snowman's nature. Ending is too Hollywood like.
