Product description

Review

"Hole's how a fictional detective should be, each scene is succinct,shifts the reader's perspective, keeps the pace fast, interesting. --Times Literary Supplement

"Nesbo handles the tension with aplomb" --Metro

`... the quality of the writing (and its translation) is so impressive.' -- Literary Review

`... this most ambitious of Nesbo's crime novels banishes any fears that the omniscient serial killer scenario has been exhausted.' -- Independent

`... [Jo Nesbo is the] best current Nordic writer of crime fiction... This is crime writing of the highest order.'
-- The Times

Every now and then, a truly exceptional crime novel comes along, something so gripping that it recalls classics such as The Silence of The Lambs. One of Norway's most successful crime writers, Jo Nesbø has pulled it off with The Snowman... This latest novel to be translated into English establishes him as a writer of rare ingenuity and total confidence... This superb novel... deserves comparison with the first volume of Stieg Larsson's Millennium trilogy. --Sunday Times

"Nesbo gradually tightens the narrative grip until, throughout the last 100 pages, the reader also finds it hard to breathe" --Evening Standard

"...this latest novel to be translated into English establishes him as a writer of rare ingenuity and total confidence..." --Sunday Times

'Nesbø's plotting and pared-back prose style... keeping the reader hooked as he ramps up the action to a gripping climax.'
--The Big Issue

THE SNOWMAN is a complex, intellectually satisfying plot with many twists... Do yourself a favour and read it
--Eurocrime

"my crime fiction book of the year so far"
--Sunday Times

`Readers wondering where to turn after finishing Stieg Larsson's Millennium trilogy would be well advised to give Jo Nesbo a try.'
--The Guardian

Book Description

The first snowfall in Oslo brings a series of gruesome murders, and Harry Hole is pitted against a brutal killer who will drive him to the edge.

The Snowman is one of a number of Harry Hole books I have read. Unfortunately, I do not seem to be picking them up in the order written and keep finding myself backpedaling from situations I had encountered in an earlier read to previous events and circumstances. However, I cannot blame Jo Nesbo for that. It'smy own fault. But I would advise any reader thinking of reading a Jo Nesbo book, to go through them in order because, believe me, once you read one Jo nesbo you won't be able to stop until you have read them all.

The Snowman is typical Nesbo, brilliant writing, some marvellously creative observations about ordinary aspects of life, a great story, and an utterly flawed but fascinating protagonist. The book is as much about Inspector Harry Hole as it is about the crimes he is trying to solve. Harry Hole is an alcoholic. He is completely unreliable. He drives his superiors up the walls so much that they are constantly firing him. But he is a fascinating character who, despite his many flaws, grabs our attention and our empathy. He has a marvellous brain and a great talent for becoming increasingly aware of the the motivations and intentions of the killers he chases. He sees into the heart of thee crimes and can feel his way through any of the killer's misdirections to the truth of the crimes.

The Snowman is typical Nesbo, lurid killings, a complex and intelligent killer, baffling clues and myriad solutions. And just when the reader is convinced the killer has been caught, Hole finds reason to cast doubt on the solution... and on the next one ... and on the next. Intricacy has to be Nesbo' middle name . This book is a tour de force, grabbing our attention, giving us constant food for thought, and knocking holes in all our conclusions. So which of the suspects IS the killer? You won't be able to put the book down until you find out.

Fans of Nesbo will love this. Even if you don't know Nesbo, you will love this. A brilliant detective yarn.

Not a bad book but I've read much much better. It starts off really well and you get the impression that you're into a winner but then it seems to go off at all sorts of tangents and when you eventually catch up its like you've missed half the book and need to read several chapters again. Harry Hole is a fantastic character and shows loads of promise. A quick mind and quite convincing in his deductions..... but then he does get it wrong, several times before he works it out. Which isn't hard when all the clues have been there and basically have been jumping up and down dancing right in front of him before he clicks on. Then there's the language barrier. Might just be me but because I can't pronounce any of the names I don't really identify with any of the other characters, and neither does Harry really. They seem to be introduced as characters and some of them could have added an additional twist to the tale, but then they are dropped or reintroduced and I find myself trying to remember who they are. Likewise Harry doesn't seem to have any sort of rapport with any of them. Something that might develop I suppose in later books. Not sure I would read another, not yet anyway.

A thrilling serial murder story involving a murderer with a frightening incurable disease. Who will be next on his list, and why? What do the mysterious snowmen that appear in the garden mean? Harry Hole employs his usual 'sideways' thinking to try and solve these crimes. Read and enjoy.

Over-rated.Quite boring in parts and just plods along which is annoying because it is a long book to read. I'm puzzled why this author is so popular.

I found this book a bit boring after it was recommended to me as being a scary page turner. Disappointing.
