Review quote

"Comparisons with Stieg Larsson have been made, but Nesbo's plots move quickly, carry more punch, and really do keep you guessing to the final page" Daily Mirror "A cracking good thriller...that will keep you gripped to the last page" Guardian "Outstanding... Probably the best big crime novel you could lay your hands on this year" BBC Radio 4 "Nesbo's novels keep going when you think there can't be any more twists to follow. Scenes switch from the avalanche-threatened ravines and mountain cabins of back-country Norway, close to oil-rich Stavanger and metropolitan Oslo, to an active volcano in Africa" Times Literary Supplement "Original Norwegian noir...absorbing" -- Tom Huddleston Time Outshow more

THE NEW GLOBAL PHENOMENON 'A cracking good thriller... The ticking clock, the tension expertly racheted ever upwards, the changing scenery, the constantly shifting goalposts and his effortless, triumphant outpacing of the reader's ability to guess what's going to happen will keep you gripped to the last page' Guardian Two young women are found dead, both drowned in their own blood. Then a female politician is found brutally murdered in a city park. The crime scenes offer no clues, the media is reaching fever pitch, and the police are running out of options. There is only one man who can help them solve the case, but Inspector Harry Hole doesn't want to be found...

Our customer reviews

This is such a "page-turner", I couldn't put it down. That said, it is very graphic in its portrayal of the various means of death suffered by the characters, which may be a downside for some readers. I picked this book up in Sydney airport when my flight was delayed and was glad to be spending the next 3 hours uninterrupted by my children!! Harry Hole is such a wonderfully, humanly flawed character, that you like him regardless of his many faults. So enjoyable that I came home and instantly ordered Jo Nesbo's first 3 books on this site.show more
