The Snowman by Jo Nesbo was the next book on my To Be Read shelf. I have read several Jo Nesbo books. I had the Oslo Trilogy as an ibook on my phone when we went overseas a few years ago.
From the book jacket:
A young boy wakes to find his mother missing. Their house is empty but outside in the garden he sees his mother’s favourite scarf – wrapped around the neck of a snowman. As Harry Hole and his team begin their investigation they discover that an alarming number of wives and mothers have gone missing over the years. When a second woman disappears it seems that Harry’s worst suspicions are confirmed: for the first time in his career Harry finds himself confronted with a serial killer operating on his home turf.
This one certainly lived up to the button on the front of the book – “The next Stieg Larsson” You are hooked on this book right from the first couple of pages. Crime fiction is obviously the genre that I pursue and my ‘to be read shelf’ still has a few of them waiting to be read before I try some other genre.
An excellent review of The Snowman is here.
