Crime Fiction Lover

It’s a big-boned, Technicolor epic in the current Nesbo style, starting adagio and ending accelerando, but with the kind of close psychological character readings that distinguished his early work

Gripping from the get-go, deliciously dark and expertly plotted, this is Nesbo at his brilliant best

Heat
