Book Review: The Snowman by Jo Nesbø

The Snowman by Jo Nesbø

As much as I moan about films ruining books, I get very excited when I see one of my favorites is going to be made into one. This instance the opposite actually happened; I saw the trailer for The Snowman and then decided that this was a book I just had to read. The Snowman […]
