The Snowman: A Harry Hole Novel

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Jo Nesbo

Narrated By: Robin Sachs

Publisher: Random House (Audio)

Date: May 2011

Duration: 15 hours 30 minutes


Internationally acclaimed crime writer Jo Nesbø’s antihero police investigator, Harry Hole, is back: in a bone-chilling thriller that will take Hole to the brink of insanity.

Oslo in November. The first snow of the season has fallen. A boy named Jonas wakes in the night to find his mother gone. Out his window, in the cold moonlight, he sees the snowman that inexplicably appeared in the yard earlier in the day. Around its neck is his mother’s pink scarf.

Hole suspects a link between a menacing letter he’s received and the disappearance of Jonas’s mother—and of perhaps a dozen other women, all of whom went missing on the day of a first snowfall. As his investigation deepens, something else emerges: he is becoming a pawn in an increasingly terrifying game whose rules are devised—and constantly revised—by the killer.

Fiercely suspenseful, its characters brilliantly realized, its atmosphere permeated with evil, The Snowman is the electrifying work of one of the best crime writers of our time.

    The only thing I can say bad about this book is the names were hard to follow. Otherwise an amazing suspenseful book, great characters and story line. Shortly after I finished shed this read I realized they made it a movie. So obviously it was amazing.

    This books was great and suspenseful. Great character development, too. Despite this book being part of a series, it stands completely on its own.

    Have been a fan of Jo Nesbo and have listen to all, so far. Wasn't disapointed. Someone said they did not like it due to the strange names to many characters, but having read all the others I didn't find it confusing.
