A veteran mystery reader, I'm always excited when I discover a new author. Although I came into this series in the middle, I didn't feel left out (although I may now go read the others!). I enjoyed Harry and his adventures in the snowbound land chasing 'the snowman'. Like other reviewers, I never thought I'd be afraid of snowmen, so I suppose Nesbo deserves no small amount of credit for inspiring such vivid fears! Although I think I had a sense of where the tale was going, I was never bored and I always wanted to see what would happen next. A good, solid police procedural.
