Product description

Roger Brown has it all: Norway's most successful headhunter, he is married to a beautiful gallery owner and owns a magnificent house. But he's also a highly accomplished art thief. At a gallery opening, his wife introduces him to Clas Greve. Not only is Greve the perfect candidate for a position that Brown is recruiting for; he is also in possession of 'The Calydonian Boar Hunt' by Rubens, one of the most sought-after paintings in modern art history. Roger starts planning his biggest theft ever. But soon, he runs into trouble - and it's not financial problems that are threatening to knock him over this time...

Author information

Jo Nesbo is a musician, songwriter, economist and author. His first crime novel featuring Harry Hole was published in Norway in 1997 and was an instant hit, winning the Glass Key Award for best Nordic crime novel (an accolade shared with Peter Hoeg, Henning Mankell and Stieg Larsson). The Leopard, the sixth of Nesbo's novels to be translated into English, went straight to the top of the bestseller charts in its first week of publication. www.jonesbo.co.uk.

Review quote

A gripping read... I got lost in this book and hours skipped by as the chapters got shorter, more tense and the pace quickened to an almost unbearable crescendo... A thoroughly satisfying read Irish Independent Just as well-executed as his regular police procedurals...it's written in the Norwegian author's typical no-nonsense prose, and plotted with precision to create a relentless and breakneck tale that keeps the reader hungrily turning the pages for more Big Issue An intriguing foray into the mind of a man you'd hope never to meet Metro Nesbo is a master storyteller, gripping the reader from the first page and ratcheting up the suspense in a thrilling finale with several satisfying twists. Any readers coming to Nesbo for the first time will find this a cracking, if slightly far-fetched read while his fans will find plenty to entertain them. Sunday Express With echoes of The Thomas Crown Affair, spectacular storytelling and a beautifully judged super-twist, it confirms Nesbo's place at the pinnacle of thriller writers and, inevitably, a film version will be with us next year. It's that good. -- Geoffrey Wansell Daily Mail
