A novel by a Norwegian writer called Jo Nesbo (with the slashed through "o" letter I don't know how to type) named Snowman. It's really good.
I have read one novel by Jo Nesbo called "Nemesis". It was quite good but I didn't enjoy it as much as novels I have read by Karin Fossum, Arnaldur Indridason and Johan Theorin so I have placed Nesbo behind them in the list of books I must read. I do like the character of Harry Hole.
As do I. Snowman is one of the later books and I plan to start the series at the beginning after I finish it.

Harry is a great character, but his new partner (Bratt I think, can't even be bothered to remember her name) is an awful Mary Sue.

Why do male authors have such trouble protraying strong female characters? I'm sick of bitchy, obnoxious and yet oh so sexy police women. It's a terrible stereotype.

Still, the novel makes for a great read.
