One night, after the first snowfall of the year, a boy named Jonas wakes up and discovers that his mother has disappeared. Only one trace of her remains: a pink scarf, his Christmas gift to her, now worn by the snowman that inexplicably appeared in their yard earlier that day.
Inspector Harry Hole suspects a link between the missing woman and a suspicious letter he's received. The case deepens when a pattern emerges: over the past decade, eleven women have vanished--all on the day of the first snow. But this is a killer who makes his own rules... and he'll break his pattern just to keep the game interesting, as he draws Harry ever closer into his twisted web.
With brilliantly realized characters and hair-raising suspense, international bestselling author Jo Nesb#65533; presents his most chilling case yet--one that will test Harry Hole to the very limits of his sanity.

Suspenseful, page-turner! One of a series of "Harry Hole" detective novels. Author Jo Nesbo has recieved the Glass Key award for best Nordic crime novel, "previously awarded to Stieg Larsson and Henning Mankell." Take that to mean, if you loved Stieg Larsson's series, you should check out Jo Nesbo!

Well written, and the suspect was a surprise. The ending was not the greatest of Jo Nesbo, but kept me interested.
