The Snowman by Jo Nesbø

The Snowman (NorwegianSnømannen, 2007) is a novel by Norwegian crime-writer Jo Nesbø. It is the seventh entry in his Harry Hole series. …

Looking through cold cases, Hole realises that he is tracking Norway’s first known serial killer. …

I’d heard great things about Nesbø. He is an excellent author.

The book is complex and very suspenseful. I appreciated all the main characters.

One criticism. I’d say the book is about 30% too long. 30% too complicated. It would have been stronger if more succinct.

The Snowman (2017 film) should have been excellent. But critics panned it. I can’t imagine how they bungled adapting this fascinating story.

It’s 8% on Rotten Tomatoes.
