    When Harry left Oslo again for Hong Kong - fleeing the traumas of life as a cop - he thought he was there for good. But then the unthinkable happened. The son of the woman he loved, lost, and still loves is arrested for murder: Oleg, the boy Harry helped raise but couldn't help deserting when he fled. Harry has come back to prove that Oleg is not a killer. Barred from rejoining the police force, he sets out on a solitary, increasingly dangerous investigation that takes him deep into the world of the most virulent drug to ever hit the streets.

    Fran Murphy says: "Jo Nesbo hates Harry Hole"
    "Harry Hole is a beast!"

    What made the experience of listening to Phantom the most enjoyable?

    The narrator is phenomenal. I listened to "The Leopard" on audio as well so looked forward to the performance.


    What other book might you compare Phantom to and why?

    Harry is the Norwegian version of Michael Connolly's Harry Bosch. Although I think Hole could take Bosch!


    Which character – as performed by Robin Sachs – was your favorite?

    Harry Hole by far was my favorite. Robin Sachs voice is forever linked to Hole for me.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Harry's recurring dream came to fruition.

    Alexander McCall Smith’s No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency series has become a worldwide phenomenon thanks to the appeal of endearing protagonist Precious Ramotswe and the author’s charmingly quirky prose. In this 13th installment, Mma Ramotswe’s attention is focused on a pesky disciplinary problem at her adopted daughter’s school - while Grace Makutsi adjusts to wedded bliss and the famed Clovis Andersen arrives in Botswana looking for more than bush tea.

    Rugbysmom says: "This series + this narrater = great entertainment"
    "The girls are at it again!"

    I love every one of these books! The stories are fun, much like Seinfeld in the way of a show about nothing but it's about everything! Real life.
