Police/Crime Thriller: The Snowman by Jo Nesbø

Stoney's Wine Lounge is in Lakewood, pretty close to Skillman and Live Oak. I'm not completely certain of their menu- obviously wine, some cheese dishes, not sure what else... Appears to have a parking lot to the right of the building.

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 Nesbø presents his most chilling case yet—one that will test Harry Hole to the very limits of his sanity.

      I'm fine. Two cars crashed into each other and then slid into mine as a result of their crash. Everyone walked away. I'll be at the Salt event :)

    I had a lot of fun talking about snowmen, how Norwegian books with a misogynist bent are strangely popular in the states, and about how you can throw donuts at people in a bakery in the Czech Republic.

    I learned a lot.

    Parts of the story take place in Bergen, and so I thought I would share this photo blog of a Bergen resident:
