Praise for Jo Nesbø and The Snowman
“Jo Nesbø is my new favorite thriller writer and Harry Hole my new hero.” —Michael Connelly
“Fiendishly complex and terrifically entertaining.” —The New York Times Book Review
“If you don’t know Nesbø, it’s time to get with it.” —USA Today
“Nesbø explores the darkest criminal minds with grim delight and puts his killers where you least expect to find them. . . . His novels are maddeningly addictive.” —Vanity Fair
“A superb thriller—smart, stylish, beautifully paced and meticulously plotted.” —Newsday
“The Snowman is strung together with great care, playful in certain stretches, grisly in others, all of it highly readable.” —Newsweek
“The writer most likely to take the ice-cold crown in the critically acclaimed—and now bestselling—category of Nordic noir.” —Los Angeles Times
“Nesbø's books have a serious, socially significant heft, as well as a confident (even cocky) narrative stride that is unmatched. These aren’t mere investigatory trifles to be enjoyed and forgotten; their unnerving horrors linger.” —Richmond Times-Dispatch
“Nesbø’s pace is unerring, and the way he builds up suspense will incite Pavlovian page-turning.” —Time Out New York
“This is reading as you experienced it in childhood, without any gap between eye and mind, but with the added pleasures that adult plots and adult characters can bring. . . . Unputdownable. The Snowman is probably the most terrifying and certainly the most addictive book in the whole series.” —Slate
“This is crime writing of the highest order, in which the characters are as strong as the story, where an atmosphere of evil permeates, and the tension begins in the first chapter and never lets up.” —The Times (London)
“Spine-chilling. . . . This most ambitious of Nesbø’s crime novels banishes any fears that the omniscient serial killer scenario has been exhausted.” —The Independent (London)
“Macabre and disturbing. . . . Deft plotting, strong characterization, adrenaline-fuelled action sequences and a whole raft of social issues raised along the way make this book a spectacularly good example of how a tried and tested (and often tired) formula can be made exhilarating and fresh.” —The Guardian (London)
“Hole is all a fictional detective should be.” —Times Literary Supplement
“If you’re still grieving the loss of Stieg Larsson, it’s time to move on. Nesbø’s waiting for you.” —Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

My daughter recommended this book so I took a chance but sorry I did. The "villain" was just too goofy and far too predictable. The plot was nowhere near "bone chilling" as the description states. The characters are poorly developed. More time is spent describing what they are wearing and their facial expressions than what "makes them tick". I found large chunks of the book droned on and on that my mind wandered and I had to go back in case I had missed something important...I hadn't.
Quite frankly, I think this book would appeal to the soap opera generation or to a teen audience. I suspect the movie may come across much better if it's written and performed well because the storyline had promise but is just not packaged well in book form..
I also didn't like how the revenge seeking policewoman Britt's story was suddenly kind of truncated off and she became a sideline character. She was the most interesting character in the story, smart, dark, damaged, and should have been developed even further and given a part of the capture or kill of her father's murderer. What the writer could have done with Britt beyond what he did was a real blown opportunity.

Read. I found it hard to follow and wasn’t exactly surprised by the ending.
