Chilling. Jo Nesbo’s detective novel, The Snowman, kept me on edge and engaged from beginning to end. Detective Harry Hole struggles with alcohol, relationships and a serial killer, always thinking and putting the pieces together. Multiple suspects provide the requisite twists and turns to the plot, and give Nesbo the opportunity to allow Hole to relax briefly and then forge ahead rapidly. It was hot weather when I read this novel, and the chill of the story provided welcome refreshment. Fans of detective novels are most likely to enjoy this finely written one.
Rating: Three-star (Recommended)
