Dubray Review

Harry Hole is back. After a self-imposed period of exile in Hong Kong, Harry returns to his native Norway where his surrogate son, Oleg, has been accused of the murder of a junkie flatmate. Unsure of whom he can trust and with the case against Oleg leaving the boy all but convicted, Harry must take some tough decisions in his search for justice. Alone and denied permission to reopen the investigation, Harry trawls through the underworld on the trail of the most virulent drug ever to hit the streets of Oslo, making connections that will leave him damaged and changed forever. This thrilling story is the very definition of ‘hard to put down’ and even the most jaded of readers will be struck by the way the plot twists and turns with an ending that leaves you rattled and shaken.

- Donal Harding, Dun Laoghaire

From the moment he steps off the plane, someone is watching his every move...someone wants him silenced.

Reviews

"Expertly plotted and structured...relentlessly paced...a compulsive page turner" Independent on Sunday "Nesbo wrings out the tension, by turns painful and delicious, with consummate skill. The surprises come like an avalanche as the end nears" Sunday Express "A first-class thriller...and the complex plot...contains several twists some of which will make you gasp and at least one of which will make you cry" Evening Standard "The relationship between Harry and Rakel is truly multifaceted, and richer in nuance than anything else in the crime genre. Phantom will maintain Jo Nesbo's unstoppable momentum" -- Barry Forshaw Independent "Jo Nesbo writes tightly plotted, claustrophobic thrillers with plenty of snow and a brutal yet hopelessly romantic policeman hero... They're also exuberantly, ingeniously gruesome" Sunday Telegraph
