Publisher's Summary

Captured on closed-circuit television: A man walks into an Oslo bank, puts a gun to a cashier’s head, and tells her to count to 25. When he doesn’t get his money fast enough, he pulls the trigger. The young woman dies—and two million Norwegian kroner disappear without a trace.

After a drunken evening with his former girlfriend, Anna Bethsen, Police Detective Harry Hole wakes up at home with a headache, no cell phone, and no memory of the past 12 hours. That same day, Anna is found shot dead in her bedroom, making Hole a prime suspect in an investigation led by his hated adversary, Tom Waaler.

Meanwhile, the bank robberies continue with unparalleled savagery, sending rogue detective Hole from the streets of Oslo to steaming Brazil in a race to close two cases and clear his name. But Waaler isn’t finished with his longtime nemesis quite yet.

What the Critics Say

"Nesbo manages the unlikely feat of exploring the inner life of his lead character in the thorough and compelling manner one associates with, say, Ruth Rendell, while at the same time juggling multiple, interlocking plot strands as dexterously as David Hewson. No doubt about it: Nesbo belongs on every crime-fiction fan’s A-list." (Booklist)

    "Great narrator, great book"

    Thor Knai does a great job narrating - I really liked him better than Sachs. Storyline and characters are compelling, as usual. Definitely recommend.

    "Tedius"

    The book started off in a compelling way and then drifted into endless dialogue which seemed superficial. I got through half of it and couldn't finish. The characters seemed immature and macho.. Not very well written.

    "The narration is fine"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Don't let the whining about the performance keep you away. I thought he was quite good.
