Publisher's Summary

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.
Inspector Harry Hole is convinced there is a link between the disappearance and a menacing letter he received some months earlier. As Harry and his team delve into unsolved case files, they discover that an alarming number of wives and mothers have gone missing over the years. When a second woman disappears, Harry's suspicions are confirmed: he is a pawn in a deadly game.
For the first time in his career Harry finds himself confronted with a serial killer operating on his turf, a killer who will drive him to the brink of insanity. A brilliant thriller with a pace that never lets up, The Snowman confirms Jo Nesbo's position as an international star of crime fiction.

Nailbiting from start to finish

I hadn't read anything by Jo Nesbo before. What a find! The story keeps you guessing all the way through, some parts were too scary to listen to in the dark. Excellent narration by Sean Barrett brings the story alive. Best audiobook so far.

The comparisons to the Millennium trilogy should not stop you buying this audio book.
This is a chilling listen that will have you going to the next bus stop to walk home just so you can listen a little more and keep you listening well into the night.
I dare you to figure out the Killer before Harry Hole does and if you can I will buy you a drink!
Best thriller/crime novel of recent times and in my opinion leaves the Millennium trilogy in the dust this is so much better. Delighted I took a leap of faith on this one and can't wait to read/listen to more from this engaging writer.
Hope you enjoy it just as much as I have.
