The thrilling follow-up to Jo Nesbo's #1 bestseller Phantom

The victims are carefully chosen. The locations former crime scenes. The killings no accident. The target: police.

After recovering from a near fatal shooting, Harry Hole has finally retired from active duty. He hears about the case but keeps his distance, determined to protect those he loves from the danger that he can never seem to escape.

But as the media pressure intensifies, Harry finds himself advising an unofficial task force investigating the murders. Drawn into a dangerous web of cold cases and precarious allegiances, Harry can't guarantee protection for anyone. Least of all himself.

About the Author

Jo Nesbo played football for Norway's premier league team Modle, but his dream of playing professionally for Spurs was dashed when he tore crucial ligaments in his knee at the age of eighteen. After three years military service he attended business school and formed the band Di derre (Them There). Their second album topped the charts in Norway, but he continued working as a financial analyst, crunching numbers during the day and gigging at night. When commissioned by a publisher to write a memoir about life on the road with his band, he instead came up with the plot for his first Harry Hole crime novel, The Bat. He is regarded as one of Europe's leading crime writers, with both The Leopard and Phantom topping the UK bestseller charts, and his novels are published in 40 countries.

    Comment on this review

    "It's easy to see why his books are mega-sellers - those enormous, pulsating plots drag you in without mercy... Compulsive" -- Iain Finlayson/Kate Saunders Saga Magazine "As usual, the brilliant Nesbo is several steps ahead of you in this endlessly twisting, multi-layered thriller that also shines a light on the murky areas of Norway's upper echelons" -- Natasha Harding Sun "In the dark world of Scandinavian crime, Jo Nesbo's novels are darker than most. Settle down with a glass of Akvavit and prepare for a long night" Independent "In Harry Hole, [Nesbo has] created the most complex, compelling and at times frustrating detective... Probably his best yet" -- Cherie Blair Mail on Sunday "Fans of the series will know what to expect, and won't be disappointed" Escapism
