Description

'A cracking good thriller...that will keep you gripped to the last page' Guardian

In the depths of winter a killer stalks the city streets. Two women are found drowned in their own blood. A third woman is hanged from a diving board.

YOU ARE ALLOWING THIS KILLING TO GO ON.

The crime scenes offer no clues, the media is reaching fever pitch, and the police are running out of options.

IT'S TIME THIS WAS STOPPED...

There is only one man who can help them catch the killer. But Inspector Harry Hole doesn't want to be found.

...BECAUSE I HAVE APPOINTED THE NEXT VICTIM.

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 Out *

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
