Soon the first snow will come

A young boy wakes to find his mother missing. Outside, he sees her favourite scarf - wrapped around the neck of a snowman.

And then he will appear again

Detective Harry Hole soon discovers 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, Harry's worst suspicion is confirmed- a serial killer is operating on his home turf.

...he will have taken someone else

Author Biography

Jo Nesbo is one of the world's bestselling crime writers, with The Leopard, Phantom, Police, The Son and his latest Harry Hole novel, The Thirst, all topping the Sunday Times bestseller charts. He's an international number one bestseller and his books are published in 50 languages, selling over 40 million copies around the world.

Before becoming a crime writer, Nesbo played football for Norway's premier league team Molde, but his dream of playing professionally for Spurs was dashed when he tore ligaments in his knee at the age of eighteen. After three years military service he attended business school and formed the band Di Derre ('Them There'). They topped the charts in Norway, but Nesbo continued working as a financial analyst, crunching numbers during the day and gigging at night. When commissioned by a publisher to write a memoir about life on the road with his band, he instead came up with the plot for his first Harry Hole crime novel, The Bat.

Review

Many authors know how to make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up. Jo Nesbo's one of the few who keeps them there. Linwood Barclay Jo Nesbo conjures up such a gripping sense of terror in The Snowman that his tale of a perverted serial killer with a penchant for the titular figures leaves your wits scrambled -- Siobhan Murphy Metro The Snowman is a superb thriller. Jo Nesbo is astonishingly good; he knows how to grab you, by the throat and by the heart -- Jeff Abbott A strong, pacey narrative with plenty of gruesome discoveries -- Laura Wilson The Guardian Inventive and extremely creepy Daily Mail Many authors know how to make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up. Jo Nesbo's one of the few who keeps them there -- Linwood Barclay Nesbo, in his fifth, most wide-ranging novel, gradually tightens the narrative grip until, throughout the last 100 pages, the reader also finds it hard to breathe -- Mark Sanderson Evening Standard Everything zips along, with some excellent red herrings in a tight plot... Nesbo keeps you turning the pages and if your idea of the perfect crime novel is to see Inspector Rebus investigating killings from The Silence of the Lambs, you'll love this The Times Jo Nesbo is my new favourite thriller writer and Harry Hole my new hero -- Michael Connelly Every now and then, a truly exceptional crime novel come along... This superb novel...deserves comparison with the first volume of Stieg Larsson's Millennium trilogy -- Joan Smith The Sunday Times One of the stars of contemporary crime fiction -- Martin Josephs The Times This is chilling, spectacular stuff and anyone looking for serious, and seriously compelling, crime writing need look no further -- Mark Billingham
