A quick blog post about a book I finished a couple of days ago and that I truly enjoyed. I first didn’t plan to blog about it, but on the plane today I was thinking about the novel again and thought it was actually so good that I should share it with my readers. If you love the Stieg Larsson trilogy you should read Jo Nesbo’s latest thriller The Snowman, set in a snowy Oslo and Bergen. It’s one of those books that you want to keep on reading, it only takes a couple of pages to get completely absorbed in the story and after that you can’t put it down anymore.
The book is a serial killer whodunit, in which detective Harry Hole tries to solve the disappearance of several mothers that have one thing in common: a snowman was built outside their house around the time they went missing. The police think that they have solved the crime quickly, but Harry is not convinced and keeps on searching. Even though I can’t relate to Harry at all (exactly like I had with the main characters in Stieg Larssons novels), I think it’s a great novel with a well thought out storyline and an unexpected ending. If you’re into thrillers give this one a try for your summer holiday – or wait until your winter holiday, somehow it feels weird to read about cold and snow when it’s 35 degrees outside.
