Publisher's Summary

Now a major film starring Michael Fassbender.
36 million books sold worldwide.

The first snow will come

A young boy wakes to find his mother missing. Their house is empty but outside in the garden he sees his mother's favourite scarf – wrapped around the neck of a snowman.

And then he will appear again

As Harry Hole and his team begin their investigation they discover that an alarming number of wives and mothers have gone missing over the years.

And when the snow is gone...

When a second woman disappears it seems that Harry's worst suspicions are confirmed: for the first time in his career Harry finds himself confronted with a serial killer operating on his home turf.

...he will have taken someone else.

Usual fare. Dragged on.

The first Harry Hole book I’ve come across due to seeing a film trailer. It’s not too amazing tbh. There was some suspense but overall it felt like the author tried to be too clever. The ending also dragged once revealed.

The narration was a little strange at the beginning, perhaps it was the accent.

I don’t think I’ll be following this series.

The Snowman - Jo Nesbo

Sean Barrett is outstanding and breathes - lust - horror - madness - greed and intelligence into his performance of Jo Nesbo’s brilliant book.
I am eating up the Harry Hole series like a starving woman

MORE !!

Good thriller but slightly predictable whodunit

Third book I have heard in Harry Hole series and I really enjoyed it BUT I worked out very early who The Snowman was, which slightly detracted from enjoyment given all the blind alleys the writer takes you to throughout

Gruesome fare

Compelling story, read with great authority by Sean Barrett. Gruesome and complex plotting. A satisfying audible book.

Another great book by Jo Nesbo

Looking forward to seeing the film, and if it does the book justice, let's hope so.

Nicely read, could of beed a being plot though with who is the snowman...

Great character in Harry, feel like it should ended more in Katrina being the
Snowman though, would of made it more of twist at the end.. apart from that well read, great characters!

Only one chapter

Not much of a book. Enjoyed the Bat but Snowman hardly exists. Waste of money get your act together chaps.

too long.....

this book was recommended to me. I did enjoy the book however I think it was too long and it's quite hard to follow the characters names.
