The Snowman; (translated by Don Bartlett) is the story of Harry Hole, a Norwegian Police Detective on the case of a serial killer who goes by the name of the Snowman. There has been quite a lot of buzz about Scandinavian crime thrillers. This was my first. It will probably be my last. It wasn’t a bad book- it held my attention throughout the entire story. But it is not the kind of story that interests me.
