The Snowman by Jo Nesbo movie tie-in

I’ve not read any of the Harry Hole books by Norwegian author Jo Nesbo but this one has caught my eye because of the new movie tie-in cover.

The movie version stars Michael Fassbender and I like the lead actress Rebecca Ferguson who was in the excellent Mission Impossible Rogue Nation plus this year’s science fiction thriller Life.

Soon the first snow will come

A young boy wakes to find his mother missing. Outside, he sees her favourite scarf – wrapped around the neck of a snowman.

And then he will appear again

Detective Harry Hole soon discovers that an alarming number of wives and mothers have gone missing over the years.
And when the snow is gone…

When a second woman disappears, Harry’s worst suspicion is confirmed: a serial killer is operating on his home turf.

…he will have taken someone else

The new paperback of The Snowman is out today from Vintage books.
