Description

Harry Hole is in trouble.

'Expertly plotted and structured...relentlessly paced...a compulsive page turner' Independent on Sunday

The police don't want him back...

After the horrors of a case that nearly cost him his life, Harry Hole left Oslo and the police force far behind him. Now he's back, but the case he's come to investigate is already closed, and the suspect already behind bars.

The criminals don't want him back...

Denied permission to reopen the investigation, Harry strikes out on his own, quickly discovering a trail of violence and mysterious disappearances apparently unnoticed by the police. At every turn, Harry is faced with a wall of silence.

But Harry is not the only one interested in the case. From the moment he steps off the plane, someone is watching his every move.

...Someone wants him silenced

Review quote

Expertly plotted and structured...relentlessly paced...a compulsive page turner * Independent on Sunday * Nesbo wrings out the tension, by turns painful and delicious, with consummate skill. The surprises come like an avalanche as the end nears * Sunday Express * A first-class thriller...and the complex plot...contains several twists some of which will make you gasp and at least one of which will make you cry * Evening Standard * The relationship between Harry and Rakel is truly multifaceted, and richer in nuance than anything else in the crime genre. Phantom will maintain Jo Nesbo's unstoppable momentum * Independent * Jo Nesbo writes tightly plotted, claustrophobic thrillers with plenty of snow and a brutal yet hopelessly romantic policeman hero... They're also exuberantly, ingeniously gruesome * Sunday Telegraph *

About Jo Nesbo

Jo Nesbo is one of the world's bestselling crime writers, with The Leopard, Phantom, Police, The Son, The Thirst, Macbeth and Knife all topping the Sunday Times bestseller charts. He's an international number one bestseller and his books are published in 50 languages, selling over 50 million copies around the world.

Before becoming a crime writer, Nesbo played football for Norway's premier league team Molde, but his dream of playing professionally for Spurs was dashed when he tore ligaments in his knee at the age of eighteen. After three years military service he attended business school and formed the band Di Derre ('Them There'). They topped the charts in Norway, but Nesbo continued working as a financial analyst, crunching numbers during the day and gigging at night. When commissioned by a publisher to write a memoir about life on the road with his band, he instead came up with the plot for his first Harry Hole crime novel, The Bat.
