Review quote

"Every now and then, a truly exceptional crime novel come along, something so gripping that it recalls classics such as The Silence of The Lambs. One of Norway's most successful crime writers, Jo Nesbo has pulled it off with The Snowman... This latest novel to be translated into English establishes him as a writer of rare ingenuity and total confidence" The Sunday Times "The Snowman is a superb thriller. Jo Nesbo is astonishingly good; he knows how to grab you, by the throat and by the heart " "This is chilling, spectacular stuff and anyone looking for serious, and seriously compelling, crime writing need look no further" "Chillingly adept...creepy, creepy stuff from the very first page" Time Out "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" Evening Standard
