The police urgently need Harry Hole. A killer is stalking Oslo's streets. Police officers are being slain at the scenes of crimes they once investigated, but failed to solve. The murders are brutal, the media reaction hysterical. But this time, Harry can't help anyone. For years, detective Harry Hole has been at the centre of every major criminal investigation in Oslo. His dedication to his job and his brilliant insights have saved the lives of countless people. But now, with those he loves most facing terrible danger, Harry can't protect anyone. Least of all himself.show more

Review quote

"Boasts the customary ability to render attempts at work and sleep futile until it is finished" -- Jake Kerridge Daily Telegraph "As usual, the brilliant Nesbo is several steps ahead of you in this endlessly twisting, multi-layered thriller that also shines a light on the murky areas of Norway's upper echelons" -- Natasha Harding Sun "Scandinavian crime thrillers don't come much darker or more tense than the best-selling Harry Hole series, and this tenth outing for the Norwegian detective is the best yet" -- Deirdre O'Brien Sunday Mirror "In the dark world of Scandinavian crime, Jo Nesbo's novels are darker than most... Settle down with a glass of Akvavit and prepare for a long night" Independent "Resistance is futile: Nesbo has some rare, Ancient Mariner-type gift for holding his readers completely in thrall until he has finished with us" -- Jake Kerridge Sunday Expressshow more

Our customer reviews

Another fantastic novel from this author. His characters are wonderfully drawn that I feel they are real people and I know them personally. Slight spoiler: a shocking murder...you'll never guess who. I am sad Nesbo did away with this particular character though. A twisting turning plot as one comes to expect from Nesbo. A stunning read. Roll on the next Harry Hole.show more
