Publisher's Summary

Harry Hole returns - or does he? - in a terrifyingly paced, vertiginous new roller coaster of a thriller by the internationally best-selling author of The Snowman and The Redeemer, "the king of Scandinavian crime fiction" (Kirkus).

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.... For years, detective Harry Hole has been at the center 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 is not in a position to protect anyone.

Least of all himself...

Usual twists and turns keep you guessing

First part of book was a bit slower than usual. So relieved to have Harry alive and sober and still wonderfully human and nutty.

Interesting as always.

Feels funny to not give a perfect review because Nesbo is my favorite writer. I always looked forward to his exciting endings and it was just not there. Just sort of kept you hanging so you would buy the next book. I would have anyway.

Best Detective Series, Period.

The latest installment of the Harry Hole detective series is just added proof that Jo Nesbo pens the greatest detective series in the world. Harry Hole as a protagonist is far and away the most intriguing character is crime fiction today. I miss the original narrator, however the unfortunate change did not effect the dynamic of the story telling.

Good, not his best

Some of the red herrings were a bit too predictable. Still, these are wonderful, imperfect characters and a Harry Hole book is always a pleasure.

Too many teasers in narrative hurts story line.

This story is excellent. But loses direction due to overly developed asides used as teasers.

Another riveting Jo Nesbo tale

As always, this was a tightly woven Nesbo mystery. I only have a slight criticism: the killer could have been revealed a bit sooner. This one went on a little too long. And what is it with gruesome Norwegian murderers? At least it isn't constant gun violence but Nebso sure does come up with awful ways for his characters to die.

tense storytelling with a lot of red herrings

Thrilling and well-plotted storytelling but certain improbabilities mar the novel and there is a lot of needlessly gross violence

Jo Nesbo hits another home run with Harry Hole

Loved it. Nesbo is incredible. Gotta love Harry Hole. Great plot, characters, and no one can twist and turn like Nesbo can. Tremendous performance too. Release the next one soon!
