Review of The Snowman by Jo Nesbo

Thriller fans, let me tell you: even if you are not a fan of Scandinavian crime fiction you will like this book. It is very American, down to its pop culture references, which makes it very palatable for the general mystery/thriller reader. And can you say “suspenseful”? Go ahead and say it because this book will keep you on the edge of your seat. The ending was so well written you wonder if Jo Nesbo has been the victim of attempted murder himself. It’s compelling, it’s gut-wrenchingly visceral, the characters are well-rounded and the writing is expert. I recommend it highly and not just to Stieg Larsson fans.
