    One thought on “The Snowman”

    1. Jonas stood up on one of the kitchen chairs and peered out And, sure enough, there on the lawn in front of the house was a snowman It was, as his mother had said, big It s eyes and mouth were made with pebbles and the nose was a carrot The snowman had no hat, cap or scarf, and only one arm, a thin twig Jonas guessed had been taken from the hedge However, there was something odd about the snowman It was facing the wrong way He didn t know why, but it ought to have been looking out onto the road, [...]

    2. This is a re read for me, it is the 7th in the Harry Hole series set in Oslo, Norway It is now a major film with Michael Fassbender as Harry, I admit to being intrigued to see how this novel translates into this movie We have the usual gloomy and downbeat portrayal of Norway, its weather and its people A young boy finds his mother missing and goes outside There he finds a snowman has appeared, adorned with a scarf belonging to his mother Oslo police have Harry investigate with his new partner, K [...]

    3. I was invited to read The Snowman by the publisher, prior to its release in cinemas in October 2017, and have given an honest review in exchange.As a little girl I used to love the first snowfall of winter, and the fun that accompanied it, like sledging down hills with complete abandon and snowball fights, but best of all was building a snowman Great effort went into making this little guy look good a borrowed cap and scarf from dad a few buttons from mum s sewing box however, the snowman in Jo [...]

    4. So I can t remember if I m watching TV or maybe I m listening to some NPR podcast or something, but I hear about this movie called The Snowman directed by the same guy who did Let the Right One In and based on a novel by this Jo Nesbo dude Hey Jo Nesbo I know that name I ve seen his books floating around on I ve seen people I know, love, and respect reading, loving, and recommending his books But I found myself in a bit of a dilemma I started thinking about all the other times I ve tried to read [...]

    5. Intense I loved it I really really liked the authors writing style It was detailed, unique, and very intricate I was googling stuff left and right Lol I can t wait for the movie with Michael Fassbender Yum

    6. 2 StarsI am just not a Jo Nesbo fan I m sorry I tried I read The Bat thought well that was dull and confusing Then everyone was saying don t judge the series by the first two novels Jump ahead it gets soooo good So I was like, I will jump so far ahead I will go straight for the book they deemed so good that they made it into a bloody movie And all I can say is a resounding meh That s right it was meh very meh.The story follows our functioning alcoholic detective Harry Hole I m using the word det [...]

    7. Here s the thing about the recent popularity of Scandinavian writers and if you re a Nordic Thriller aficionado you couldn t care less about the distinction the novels are depressed, somber, filled with ennui, a lack of humor, with flawed characters if not suffused with a strong tendency towards determinism in short, whether you re reading Stieg Larsson, Henning Mankell, or Jo Nesbo you are likely reading Literary Naturalism If you live in Scandinavia you might consider this par for the course, [...]

    8. if this had been the first book i d read of the series, it would also be the last the other end she exclaimed, removing her hands from her face we ll have to begin at the other end in bergen no, harry whispered with the last air he had left in his lungs bergen s not an end could you he looked up at her saw her dark eyes fill with tears IT S MY PERIOD, she whispered.honestly i m amazed i bothered to finish i was completely unable to get lost in the characters or believe they could be real people [...]

    9. Good introduction to the Harry Hole series I m glad I read this book and I ll be starting at the beginning of the series I did not care for Harry Hole by the middle of the book but then his character was better for me by the end I have a feeling this is due to not knowing his backstory, why he battles alcoholism, why he s a lone wolf and some of the personal demons he struggles with Once I get information about his character, I m sure I m going to love this guy.So my advice is to start at the b [...]

    10. Although Nesbo is apparently a household name abroad especially in his native Norway he is just starting to receive acclaim in the States His reputation appears to be well deserved.Admittedly, I did have to work a little to get into the book at first The Snowman is the seventh Harry Hole novel, so I felt a bit like I was overhearing the middle of a conversation I also had somewhat of a learning curve to overcome when it came to the landscape, characters, and the political structure of the Norweg [...]

    11. I can promise you one thing my days of making snowmen are over No The British winter isn t far away and if one of my neighbours decides to build a snowman in our quiet, secluded street, I m booking the first flight to Barbados and running I m not kidding this is one hell of a creepy crime thriller They don t have snow in Barbados do they UPDATE Full review and Movie Tie In Post on BlogTwo days ago I entered the world of the snowman and within seven pages I know I was hooked Psychologically it s [...]

    12. PERCH SPARISCONO QUELLI CHE TORNANO Se non avessi visto il trailer del film uscito in questi giorni, che mette insieme Michael Fassbender protagonista e Tomas Alfredson regista, un abbinata da brividi, probabilmente non avrei letto questo romanzo.Tanto pi che ho scoperto essere la settima avventura del commissario Harry Hole, nel frattempo arrivate a undici.E invece, l ho preso, iniziato, e letto In quarantotto ore Cio , divorato ho letto sette otto ore al giorno Meno male che era un weekend Anz [...]

    13. This is the seventh entry in Jo Nesbo s series featuring Norwegian Police Inspector Harry Hole, and it may be the best thus far Hole, for those who haven t made his acquaintance, is a maverick who prefers to work alone and to play by his own rules He struggles with alcohol his personal life is a mess, and, as a practical matter, he lives for his job.Early in his career, Harry gained some fame, or notoriety as the case may be, for catching a serial killer while he was detailed to a case in Austra [...]

    14. Seek help, Nesbo You are sick.Somewhat higher ratio of detective work to fluff in this book A sidekick here knows her business Very linear writing style or translation , far better than the mess of book 1 The Bat, but very pedestrian and flat One very good scene of detectives at work, then fluff and cliche And less than 20% in, there is a very unpleasant murder, described in FIRST PERSON victim s detail, brutal and unrelenting, and presented as titillation and gratuitous sick violence Super Ugh [...]

    15. This is my first Jo Nesb novel, but it won t be my last.I ve wanted to read Nesb for years, and the fact that this book considered one of his best is currently being made into a film, starring Michael Fassbender as the jaded, alcoholic Oslo detective Harry Hole, was a selling point I bought a three eBook bundle for 4.99 including Harry Hole books 7 9 , and am so glad I went that route It helped immensely to be able to search people and place names in seconds Not being Norwegian, the names seemed [...]

    16. This might have been worth three stars, because I quite enjoyed it, but I ve been stingy and given it just two, because of the disproportionate number of five star ratings it has, which I don t think it deserves It s not a bad read by any means, the story is engaging, gripping at times, and genuinely creepy in places But it s far too long, so many red herrings it became tedious, and there were some utterly pointless non sequiturs eg the mould man, or was I missing some subtle reference there , a [...]

    17. The Snowman is a blizzard of cliches, a swirling maelstrom of silly nightmares and a great mound of nonsense It s a serial killer murder mystery where the narration shifts so much and the details are handed out so inconsistently you feel like the author is leading you around by the nose The red herrings are numerous and obvious multiple times, the police become convinced they ve caught the killer the back slapping is so strenuous I m surprised there aren t injuries and the depictions of murder [...]

    18. This book met all my requirements for a good thriller 1 It kept me on the edge of my seat for much of the time, AND the loads of suspects and false leads kept me guessing.2 There were interesting characters with not too much backstory on each.3 The suspenseful and bloody buildup led to a satisfying conclusion.Strange, that what chilled me most about the book was not the creepy serial killer, but the thought of someone working diligently in my yard, making a snowman that stares not out onto the r [...]

    19. Nesb creates his best novel in the series to date, placing Harry Hole and the larger cast of characters in a fast paced race to discover Norway s first serial killer Hole is investigating a number of murders in and around the Oslo area, after previous detectives could not find tangible clues to tie them together or offer any insight Hole discovers that all the slain women are married mothers and that a snowman stands outside their residence, a beacon of sorts Using the apt moniker The Snowman fo [...]

    20. It s been a so so reading year for me Thank God I chose to end it by stalking Lena, Alona, and Sofia This is one hell of a book It works on just about every level a good book should I can t recommend it highly enough If you like scares or thrills or just a good character study give these books a go.Editing to say the movie is really, really, really bad.

    21. Did you know that darkness has a taste Beware of the snowman in your front yard It may not be as innocent as it seems Well, the snowmen in this book are not Or rather the person who makes them.A well written, suspenseful and atmospheric novel, with morbid storyline, abundant suspects and ample twists and turns This is my second Jo Nesbo, the 7th in Harry Hole series and definitely not my last.

    22. In this sixth book in the series Police Inspector Harry Hole investigates a number of disappearances murders in Norway which he suspects is the work of a serial killer Over about twenty years a number of women have disappeared, and one is known dead In each case the woman is married and a mother In a bizarre twist, a snowman has been left at the site of each disappearance, in one case wearing the pink scarf and containing the cell phone of the victim This and an anonymous note sent to Harry lead [...]

    23. Za po eta da ka em da sam prvo gledao film I to je bilo dosta lo e iskustvo a po to svi hvale ovu knjigu odnosno pri u morao sam odma da sperem opori ukus pa trkno do Lagune da uzmem svoj primerak I opet smo u situaciji di je originalno delo daleko kvalitetnije nego njene obrade.Ovo mi je prva knjiga od Nesba tako da nisam bio siguran ta da o ekujem ali ono to sam dobio je stvrano opravdalo velika o ekivanja Naravno kao i svaki triler ili misterija po etak je konfuzan, ima puno likova koje treba [...]

    24. I had a little trouble getting into this book but once I did it was gripping and very creepy in places However, I found it overly long and felt that the complex plot could have been simplified a tad to keep the tension high between killings As usual for Jo Nesbo the writing was strong and the plot had sufficient false leads and red herrings to make it difficult to identify the killer although there are early clues pointing in the right direction if you re watching carefully.In the Snowman, Harry [...]
