Now a major movie starring Michael Fassbender

The first snow will come.

A young boy wakes to find his mother missing. Their house is empty but outside in the garden he sees his mother's favourite scarf - wrapped around the neck of a snowman.

And then he will appear again.

As Harry Hole and his team begin their investigation they discover 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 it seems that Harry's worst suspicions are confirmed: for the first time in his career Harry finds himself confronted with a serial killer operating on his home turf.

...he will have taken someone else.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This is chilling, spectacular stuff and anyone looking for serious, and seriously compelling, crime writing need look no further" -- Mark Billingham
"One of the stars of contemporary crime fiction" -- Martin Josephs * The Times *
"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 *
"Jo Nesbo is my new favourite thriller writer and Harry Hole my new hero" -- Michael Connelly
"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 *
"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 *
"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
"Inventive and extremely creepy" * Daily Mail *
"A strong, pacey narrative with plenty of gruesome discoveries" -- Laura Wilson * The Guardian *
"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
"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 *
"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 *

“Solid Scandinavian page-turner”

There are going to be a lot of "The Next Stieg Larsson's" appearing over the next few years following the phenomenal success of the Millennium trilogy. Jo Nesbo is fit to stand alongside Larssen, but... More
