Dubray Review

Inspector Harry Hole is a policeman who has fallen from grace. Traumatised by the impact which a previous investigation has had on his close personal relationships, Harry has been set adrift in the opium dens of Bangkok. The bodies of two young women are found with wounds so horrific they drowned in their own blood. When the body of a politician is also discovered and the crime scene offers no clues, the investigating team look to Harry to help solve the grisly murders. He struggles to make the connection between the victims, all the while coming to terms with the impending death of his father. Nesbo offers the best of the ingredients that have made Scandinavian crime such a huge phenomenon and his novels expose the darkest corners of the human psyche. His growing popularity is testament to the quality of his writing.

Reviews

"Comparisons with Stieg Larsson have been made, but Nesbo's plots move quickly, carry more punch, and really do keep you guessing to the final page" Daily Mirror "A cracking good thriller...that will keep you gripped to the last page" Guardian "Outstanding... Probably the best big crime novel you could lay your hands on this year" BBC Radio 4 "Nesbo's novels keep going when you think there can't be any more twists to follow. Scenes switch from the avalanche-threatened ravines and mountain cabins of back-country Norway, close to oil-rich Stavanger and metropolitan Oslo, to an active volcano in Africa" Times Literary Supplement "Original Norwegian noir...absorbing" -- Tom Huddleston Time Out
