The night the first snow falls a young boy wakes to find his mother gone. He walks through the silent house, but finds only wet footprints on the stairs. In the garden looms a solitary figure: a snowman bathed in cold moonlight, its black eyes glaring up at the bedroom windows. Round its neck is his mother's pink scarf.

 One of the best detectives - ever

I have now read all of the Harry Hole books that have been issued as paperbacks. It is important that new readers read the books in the order they were written as events that occur in the early books have impacts on tthe later books. The main character is like a Norwegian Harry Bosch. The story lines are complex and convoluted with twists coming fast and furious. Simply put - read these books.

 Fantastc book excellent author

I brought the snowman last week and I am hopelessly hooked, with a fast moving, compelling plot I am loving this book. Wanting to know what happens next but not wanting the story to end!!!! With More twists and turns than a rolercoaster Nesbo is a genius at keeping the reader hooked.
I wil never see a snowman in quite the same light!! credit where credit is due.

 Good apart from first chapter!

I ordered this book having enjoyed Stieg Larsson and Mankell. I was extremely disappointed by the first chapter and almost gave up. I believe the problem might have been in the translation - the sex scene was cringy in the extreme! However the rest of the book felt like it had been written by a different person and was well written and exciting! Advise sticking with it past the first chapter!

I read Jo nesbo's "The Snowman" after seeing that he was being compared to Stieg larson, whose books I loved.

I have to say I was quite impressed, I can certainly see why he has been compared to Stieg. The plot was fast moving, with plenty of twists, I did guess who the snowman was, but this didn't take away from my enjoyment.

Crying out to be a film, very good and well worth a read!

Jo Nesbo is the next Stieg Larsson! Great book, enjoyed it immensely! Highly recommended!
