Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Jo Nesbo is the king of Scandi-crime thriller writers and Harry Hole his much loved no-nonsense detective. The eighth in the series, readers new to Nesbo would be fools not to start at the beginning. A serial killer is targeting Oslo’s police force in a series of explicitly detailed grisly crimes. After the adventures of Phantom, Harry’s not around to put the pieces together and uncover the killer so his colleagues must do the best they can without him – for now – whilst trying to keep out of the way of the new police chief and, of course, the killer. Gripping from beginning to end fans of Nesbo will be thrilled by this latest instalment.

If you like Jo Nesbo you might also like to read books by Stieg Larsson, Karin Fossum and Henning Mankell.

Synopsis

Police A Harry Hole Thriller (Oslo Sequence 8) by Jo Nesbo

The police urgently need Harry Hole. 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. But this time, Harry can't help anyone. For years, detective Harry Hole has been at the centre of every major criminal investigation in Oslo. His dedication to his job and his brilliant insights have saved the lives of countless people. But now, with those he loves most facing terrible danger, Harry can't protect anyone. Least of all himself.

'It's easy to see why his books are mega-sellers - those enormous, pulsating plots drag you in without mercy... Compulsive' -- Iain Finlayson/Kate Saunders Saga Magazine

'As usual, the brilliant Nesbo is several steps ahead of you in this endlessly twisting, multi-layered thriller that also shines a light on the murky areas of Norway's upper echelons' -- Natasha Harding Sun

'In the dark world of Scandinavian crime, Jo Nesbo's novels are darker than most... Settle down with a glass of Akvavit and prepare for a long night' - Independent
