I recently finished my book and thought I would do do a review on it! This book is by a Norwegian writer named Jo Nesbo! His books tend to be on the creepy side, and I’ve loved reading his books in the past! The Snowman was just as creepy.
I want to make one thing very clear- it’s not about a killer snowman! Everyone has been asking me this and I honestly picked it up thinking the same, but no there is no murdering snowman. Instead, there is a more realistic story.
The main character, Harry Hole (I’m so immature, I laughed for so long) is a detective who is in charge of the case of a missing woman. The only thing left is her scarf wrapped around a snowman outside one of the windows at her home. The case takes some twists and turns that makes it difficult to predict the ending. I won’t say anymore, because it might give away the ending!
I have something just to note here before concluding! This is the seventh book of the series. I picked it up, read it, and entered it into Goodreads! When I did this, it came up as the seventh book for this detective! I had no idea! Now looking back there is a few things that makes you realize it’s a sequel, but if you don’t want to read the first six that’s fine. You really don’t have to! He does a summary of the important things that catches you u tp speed! I would say that the end of this books gives hints for the next book which is really no big deal- maybe you’ll be sucked into reading the rest!
I actually really enjoyed this book! I only wanted to read it because of the Snowman concept, but it was one of the better mystery books I’ve read recently! Like I said, the story was hard to predict, I liked the main character, it was very gory at parts which made it intense! It also freaked me out because it snowed insanely in Canada during the creepy parts and I was like I’m going to die if I see a snowman outside my window!
I gave this story 4 stars on Goodreads: ⭐️⭐️⭐️🌟
And now I’m onto the next book: Strange Weather written by Joe Hill!
