Internationally acclaimed crime writer Jo Nesbø’s antihero
police investigator, Harry Hole, is back: in a bone-chilling
thriller that will take Hole to the brink of insanity.
Oslo in November. The first snow of the season has fallen. A
boy named Jonas wakes in the night to find his mother gone.
Out his window, in the cold moonlight, he sees the snowman
that inexplicably appeared in the yard earlier in the day.
Around its neck is his mother’s pink scarf.
Hole suspects a link between a menacing letter he’s received
and the disappearance of Jonas’s mother—and of perhaps a
dozen other women, all of whom went missing on the day of a
first snowfall. As his investigation deepens, something else
emerges: he is becoming a pawn in an increasingly terrifying
game whose rules are devised—and constantly revised—by the
Fiercely suspenseful, its characters brilliantly realized,
its atmosphere permeated with evil, The Snowman is the
electrifying work of one of the best crime writers of our time.
