The Murder In The Afternoon meets the third Tuesday of each month at 2 pm up on BookPeople’s third floor. All book clubs are free and open to the public, and book club selections are 10% off at the register in the month of discussion. The Murder In The Afternoon book club will meet next on Tuesday, March 17, at 2 pm to discuss Jo Nesbø‘s great Scandinavian thriller, The Snowman.
Winter is not over yet for our Murder In The Afternoon book club. In fact, it will be chilling for more reasons than one. We will be reading The Snowman, the book that put author Jo Nesbø on the map and continued the world’s growing interest in Scandinavian crime fiction.
The Snowman is the seventh book to feature tortured Oslo police detective Harry Hole. FBI trained, he is able to track down the worst of the worst while questioning what is becoming of his city and country. This time he may be dealing with Norway’s first serial killer, whose trademark signifier is to leave a snowman at the crime scene.
Snowman is rich in character with a look at the sociology and politics of modern Norway, so be prepared to discuss.
