The police didn't aware that a serial killer had been haunting Norwegia for years, because so far the bodies were missing; so what they had was missing person cases. Our hero, Inspector Harry Hole, happened to receive a letter which made him think that something horrible had happened to the missing women. Together with his new partner, Katrine Bratt, Harry tried to solve the puzzles [by now I believe that it's bad luck to be partnered with Harry Hole] which led them to wrong suspects four times.
It was exciting to read when the writer unmasked the Snowman (the killer) and realized that he had been in the previous book [The Redeemer] as a harmless character. The Snowman for me is the best book in this series -- so far.

Our hero, Inspector Harry Hole, believed that the only way to stop the hitman was to know who had hired him in the first place. The plots seemed boring at first, but near the ending it got exciting. Another sad event happened when Harry Hole lost a partner again. I myself liked Halvorsen, who I thought was diligent and never complained.
