    Review quote
    "The next Stieg Larsson" Independent "Nesbo sets a cracking pace... A series of spectacular plot twists leads to a thrilling finale. Highly recommended" Guardian "Compelling... Shocking and surprising...expertly paced" The Times "Many authors know how to make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up. Jo Nesbo's one of the few who keeps them there" -- Lindwood Barclay "An astonishingly confident debut. The Devil's Star scores with an intriguing plot and Nesbo's mastery of pace and tension" The Times
