Fans of Stieg Larsson’s, “Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” series, should check out Norwegian author Joe Nesbo’s “The Snowman.” On the first day of snow, a child wakes up to find his mother has disappeared during the night. Outside, a snowman has appeared out of nowhere, the calling card of one of the most terrifying serial killers in recent fiction. A letter from the perpetrator draws Detective Hole further and further into the case, and together with his new partner, Katrine Bratt, he hunts the Snowman through twists and turns that become increasingly personal and may drive Hole to the brink of insanity. What is the link between the victims? The police keep thinking they’ve caught the criminal, but Hole’s astute observations may steer him around the red herrings and right into the hands of the cold-as-ice killer.
