THE FIRST KILLER HARRY PUT BEHIND BARS IS OUT TO GET HIM.

Harry is responsible for the many years Finne spent in prison but now he’s free and ready to pick up where he left off.

When Harry wakes up with blood on his hands, and no memory of what he did the night before, he knows everything is only going to get worse…

Listen to a sample

Knife shows Nesbo back on form… This is a police procedural that breaks the bounds of the format with abandon… Nesbo manhandles the reader into contented…submission

Financial Times

This is Scandi noir as dark as obsidian with an emotional wreck of a protagonist

i

Knife sees the return of Harry’s old nemesis Svein Finne… The plot never goes the way you think it will, as Nesbo delights in playing tricks on the reader

Mail on Sunday

[Knife] may be Nesbo’s best storytelling yet. It’s not just clever; it’s diabolical, and let’s be glad it is, because the corkscrewing plot provides a measure of relief from the pain on view in this uncompromisingly intense and brilliant novel

Booklist

You can imagine the worst (and you will probably be right), but the brilliant Jo Nesbo will surprise you anyway. Knife is the most unpredictable novel in the [Harry Hole] series
