Listen to a sample
Everything zips along, with some excellent red herrings in a tight plot... Nesbo keeps you turning the pages and if your idea of the perfect crime novel is to see Inspector Rebus investigating killings from The Silence of the Lambs, you'll love this
Every now and then, a truly exceptional crime novel come along... This superb novel...deserves comparison with the first volume of Stieg Larsson's Millennium trilogy
This is chilling, spectacular stuff and anyone looking for serious, and seriously compelling, crime writing need look no further
Jo Nesbo is my new favourite thriller writer and Harry Hole my new hero
One of the stars of contemporary crime fiction
