From the Publisher
The next thrilling installment in the Harry Hole series.
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 Nesbø''s position
as an international star of crime fiction.
