this was a good story. it kept me interested and made me want to keep listing to find out what happened. the reader was very good.
I'm open to any book as long as it is true to itself.
This is the best detective fiction ever. I have read many detective novels, but Harry Hole has now become my new favourite detective. The setting, characters and plot were fabulous and I have now bought everything by Jo Nesbo. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys Michael Connelly, Jeffery Deaver or James Ellroy. Brilliant.
No performance could have helped this awful writing and story telling
I am so frustrated buying books that get such high marks. I get that everyone may not like the same books, but there was nothing anyone could have liked so much. The author must have been told to write in every banal detail of even scene - ugggg
Interesting plot, timeline jumps too much, kept me guessing for a while
most interesting - suspense, significance of snowmen
least interesting - many unrealistic situations.
Nesbo is an amazing writer, and Sachs equals him as narrator. He's got the gravelly cadence of Harry Hole's voice perfectly, and he is a total asset to this book. I listened to the sample of Nemesis (the volume preceding The Snowman in the Harry Hole series), and that narrator does not cut it. Americans can't do Norwegians. Sorry.
In typical Nesbo fashion, this book is exciting, surprising and you will find yourself walking the dog more than usual in order to get to listen to it. First rate on all counts.
The reader of this audio version is excellent. Audio and print versions are both good for different reasons. Can't prefer one over the other.
Definitely unputdownable! Lots of twists and turns.
Gripping delivery and great accent!
I would definitely get more books by this author and also look for books read by Robin Sachs.

Always looking for intriguing novels & this one got my attention. The plot is very well woven to keep you on your toes for the next move in the hunt for a serial killer. The primary detective is a likeable character even with all his flaws. It is always exciting to try a new author and get so involved in the story that you just don't want to stop to take a break. This is a writer I have listed to watch for the next novel, hopefully with Harry, on the trail of another crazy villain.
I've only listened to one other and I've been lucky and have liked both of them. If I had to say, I liked this one a little better.
Harry Hole...Yes that is his name, don't ask me why that is! He's such a straight shooter and can put 2 and 2 together better than anyone. He's a no B.S. type of guy that's not afraid to say what's on his mind
It kept me into it the whole way. There was one clue that was dropped and never brought up again until the end and I found myself thinking
good suspense with even better twists and a good ending.
I was so disapointed in this book. The narrator's voice drove me crazy, so lost interest several times. Couldn't stay connected to the story. Never finished
Recommended by my mother, I took a chance at a different type of story by listening to this one...and I'm so glad I did. Definitely enjoyed listening to it...I would have put down had I been reading this and tried to pronounce a lot of the names and places. The reader was rough, but gave it some character. Twists and turns throughout the story kept me wanting more...couldn't wait to get in my car everyday just to listen!!!
