Two young women are found murdered in Oslo, both drowned in their own blood. Media coverage quickly reaches fever pitch: Could this be the work of a serial killer? The crime scenes offer no coherent clues, the police investigation is stalled, and the one man who might be able to help doesn't want to be found. Traumatized by his last case, Inspector Harry Hole has lost himself in the squalor of Hong Kong's opium dens. Yet when he is compelled, at last, to return to Norway - his father is dying - Harry's buried instincts begin to take over. Then a female MP is discovered brutally murdered.

If you could sum up The Leopard in three words, what would they be?

Could not put this one down. Thought I know the killer 3 different times until another twist came into play. Dark but rich characters.

What did you love best about A Prisoner of Birth?

One of my favorites. Details in prision perhaps made more gripping from his first hand experience. Great story teller.
