Description
Internationally acclaimed crime writer Jo Nesbø's antihero police investigator, Harry Hole, is back: in a bone-chilling thriller that will take Hole to the brink of insanity. Oslo in November. The first snow of the season has fallen. A boy named Jonas wakes in the night to find his mother gone. Out his window, in the cold moonlight, he sees the snowman that inexplicably appeared in the yard earlier in the day. Around its neck is his mother's pink scarf. Hole suspects a link between a menacing letter he's received and the disappearance of Jonas's mother—and of perhaps a dozen other women, all of whom went missing on the day of a first snowfall. As his investigation deepens, something else emerges: he is becoming a pawn in an increasingly terrifying game whose rules are devised—and constantly revised—by the killer.Fiercely suspenseful, its characters brilliantly realized, its atmosphere permeated with evil, The Snowman is the electrifying work of one of the best crime writers of our time.

      • content: "Jo Nesbø is my new favorite thriller writer and Harry Hole my new hero."
      • premium: False
      • source: Times (UK)
      • content: "With Henning Mankell having written his last Wallander novel and Stieg Larsson no longer with us, I have had to make the decision on whom to confer the title of best current Nordic writer of crime fiction. After finishing Jo Nesbø's The Snowman, I hesitate no longer . . . This is crime writing of the highest order, in which the characters are as strong as the story, where an atmosphere of evil permeates, and the tension begins in the first chapter and never lets up."
      • premium: False
      • source: Newsday
      • content: "The Snowman is a superb thriller--smart, stylish, beautifully paced and meticulously plotted . . . Nesbø is such an insightful portraitist that Hole and all the secondary characters are convincing at just about every bloody turn . . . The psychological aspects of the novel are on a par with Ruth Rendell's inspector Wexford mysteries. Ultimately, though, what sets Nesbø apart is his ability to keep the pages turning with such intellectual dexterity."

      • source: Sunday Times (UK)
      • content: "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. Jo Nesbø has pulled it off with The Snowman . . . [which] establishes him as a writer of rare ingenuity and total confidence."

      • source: Slate
      • content: "Irresistibly addictive . . . This is reading as you experienced it in childhood, without any gap between eye and mind, but with the added pleasures that adult plots and adult characters can bring . . . It is Nesbø's plots--brilliantly conceived, carefully worked out, and complicatedly satisfying--that finally make [his books] unputdownable."
      • premium: False
      • source: Library Journal (starred)
      • content: "Nesbø is being hailed as the next Stieg Larsson or Henning Mankell . . . Apt comparisons, but they don't go far enough. This is simply the best detective novel this reviewer has read in years . . . Nesbø's latest thriller reads like a symphony, from the thundering first chords that pull the reader into a magical world through the delicately enticing development in which motifs and story strands are woven together leading to a pounding, furious conclusion."

        March 28, 2011
        In this chilling installment in Nesbø'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. Nesbø 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.

      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: Robin Sachs's cool, supple voice perfectly reflects the arctic environs of Scandinavia in winter, the setting for Nesb¿'s chilling new mystery. Inspector Harry Hole is the only Norwegian policeman ever to apprehend a serial killer, and now he's been assigned the case of the Snowman. Someone is brutally murdering women, and the only obvious connection between them is the presence of a snowman at the scene of each crime. Sachs's narration transitions smoothly from the gruff voice of the unpredictable Hole to the softer voices of the various female victims and their family members and the sarcastic banter of Hole's colleagues. The combination of a compelling performance and a gripping mystery is most satisfying. K.O. (c) AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine
