The Leopard is nothing like Jo Nesbo’s The Snowman. This book took forever to finish with its countless tiresome twists, ridiculous number of characters and implausible, deadly situations that both Harry and Kaja survive. The story was too far fetched. It was as if I was reading a Norwegian soap opera not a crime novel. I did not care for Nesbo’s style of connecting The Snowman and The Leopard. If a reader choose The Leopard first, The Snowman would be ruined. Additionally two side story lines were lacking full exploration and eventual explanation. Perhaps as Nesbo did in this book, he continues to expose aspects of these characters in his next mystery. The Bellmen situation may be revealed, but I’m done with this author. Unfortunately, Nesbo disappointed me.
