Review quote

Knife shows Nesbo back on form... This is a police procedural that breaks the bounds of the format with abandon... Nesbo manhandles the reader into contented...submission * Financial Times * The sharp-as-a-knife Nesbo at his best. A first-class mix of thriller and murder mystery... Nesbo has done it again... Knife is a fantastic and exhilarating suspense novel * Dagbladet * Skilfully plotted...Nesbo...uses the vast, cold landscapes of Norway to excellent effect in building dread * UK Press Syndication * Nesbo weaves the strands of his elaborate narrative with the ease of a gifted storyteller, tantalising the reader with misdirections and a plateful of red herrings. Yet it's remarkable how quickly he can disentrangle an intricate plot. And momentum? He's a genius at that - the 500-plus pages just fly by...never underestimate Nesbo - he's a writer with a seemingly endless supply of stories to tell * The Times * [Knife] may be Nesbo's best storytelling yet. It's not just clever; it's diabolical, and let's be glad it is, because the corkscrewing plot provides a measure of relief from the pain on view in this uncompromisingly intense and brilliant novel * Booklist *
