Description

The first novel in the brilliant and epic Harry Hole series from the author of The Snowman--soon to be a major motion picture, starring Michael Fassbender, Rebecca Ferguson, and J. K. Simmons. "An elegant and complex thriller...ingenious...harrowingly beautiful scenes.... Nesbo's book eloquently uses its multiple horrors to advance a disturbing argument: suppressing history is an open invitation for history to repeat itself."--New York Times Book Review Detective Harry Hole embarrassed the force, and for his sins he's been reassigned to mundane surveillance tasks. But while monitoring neo-Nazi activities in Oslo, Hole is inadvertently drawn into a mystery with deep roots in Norway's dark past, when members of the government willingly collaborated with Nazi Germany. More than sixty years later, this black mark won't wash away--and disgraced old soldiers who once survived a brutal Russian winter are being murdered, one by one. Now, with only a stained and guilty conscience to guide him, an angry, alcoholic, error-prone policeman must make his way safely past the traps and mirrors of a twisted criminal mind. For a conspiracy is taking rapid and hideous shape around Hole...and Norway's darkest hour may be still to come.show more
