About Jo Nesbø’s The Snowman

A young boy discovers his mother has gone missing one night and all that remains is a pink scarf tied around a snowman in the garden. And so begins the seventh instalment of Jo Nesbø’s international best-selling Harry Hole series.

After receiving an ominous letter linked to the mystery, Harry Hole is compelled to investigate. With echoes of the Department Q franchise, Harry delves into cold, unsolved cases for further clues. What follows is a shocking discovery that other wives and mothers have vanished over the years without a trace.

It’s not long before the perpetrator strikes again. When another woman disappears under similar circumstances, Harry gets closer to unveiling the diabolical scheme which puts his own life in danger.

The movie adaptation is directed by the Swedish filmmaker Tomas Alfredson (Let the Right One In). Michael Fassbender steps into the shoes as the hard-boiled detective Harry Hole, alongside recognisable Nordic Noir & Beyond stars Sofia Helin, David Dencik and Jakob Oftebro.

“One of the stars of contemporary crime fiction” – Martin Josephs, The Times
