Blurb: A killer is stalking Oslo’s streets. Police officers are being slain at the scenes of crimes they once investigated, but failed to solve. The murders are brutal, the media reaction hysterical. (Harvill Secker, 2013)

Michelle Davies, The Daily Express

“Luckily for readers, Nesbo is a clever writer and plotter. Over the years he has built up a brilliant cast of supporting characters to orbit Hole and now it is their time to shine. As the body count begins to mount Hole’s old boss Gunnar Hagen assembles those players, the famous detective’s former lover Katrine Bratt, forensics genius Beate Lonne and psychologist Stale Aune, to work on the case. They are such brilliantly drawn characters, layered by a shared history that you do not even miss Hole that much at first.”

Kate Saunders, The Times

Police, Nesbø’s best since The Snowman , waits until page 169 before allowing Harry Hole to enter the action … His return compels him to revisit his old demons, drink and violence, and disturbs his new emotional and sexual equilibrium. The dark plot is particular strong in portraying the interaction between cops.”
