Perfect listening for a dreary, winter's day... or eve.

Endlessly creepy.

Nesbo always talks about Norway being a small, intertwined population, and yet he offers up countless characters with various dialects.

The audio uses various British dialects to flesh out the translation--very ingenious, especially if you tune into the (class) nuances.

The Snowman is a well-constructed novel, and I liked that Harry Hole is an imperfect protagonist who nevertheless doesn't let his personal demons interfere with finding a serial killer. It doesn't take more than about half the book to figure out who the perpetrator is and, while I would have liked to wonder longer, knowing didn't ruin the book for me. Lots of creepiness and some insights into a twisted mind, which I like in crime fiction. Based on this introduction to Jo Nesbo, I wouldn't hesitate to read another of the Harry Hole series.

Really excellent and very dramatic. Well written, and well developed characters. I had the audio book, which was extremely well read.
Overall, I highly reccommend this to anybody.
