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 *
