A great read, nice plot, always keeping you on the toes. As always Nesbø lines up a couple of possible perpetrators, keeps changing the pace, makes you think that Harry Hole has solved the case, just to turn things around again until the very end.
Recommended if you like crime novels and don't mind colorful descriptions.

Warning: Chapter 1 describes an extremely disturbing and horrific torture scene. I read a little further, then realized that this author is not to be trusted and I stopped reading the book.

Jo Nesbo at his best. Complicated story that keeps you guessing till the very end. Remarkably tight. Remarkably well crafted, like a dangerous spiderweb.

Jo Nesbo can write. Intrigue, suspense, unique plots and storyline, and protagonist Detective Harry Hole. Actually, one would be remiss if they didn't read, in order, what is essentially a four part series consisting of a) Snowman, b) Leopard, c) Phantom, and d) Police. Harry Hole solves unique crimes in each of these venues in spite of the impediments created by a changing politically and philosophically police enforcing establishment.

A page turner! Good translation of a novel written in Swedish. Didn't get turned off by Harry Hole's addictions. Hole's Swedish policing colleagues depend on his skills to solve murders. In this novel Harry figures out the connection between the murders of several women who had shared a skiing lodge one weekend.

Another well written intriguing book. Always enjoy these. The endings are hard to swallow occasionally, but good nonetheless.

tried to get into it and couldn't, rarely do I not finish a book but there are too many to read to waste anymore time on this one.
