Synopsis

The Thirst by Jo Nesbo

THERE'S A NEW KILLER ON THE STREETS. A woman is found murdered after an internet date. The marks left on her body show the police that they are dealing with a particularly vicious killer. HE'S IN YOUR HOUSE...HE'S IN YOUR ROOM. Under pressure from the media to find the murderer, the force know there's only one man for the job. But Harry Hole is reluctant to return to the place that almost took everything from him. Until he starts to suspect a connection between this killing and his one failed case. HE'S OUT FOR BLOOD. When another victim is found, Harry realises he will need to put everything on the line if he's to finally catch the one who got away.

Reviews

[The Thirst is] a breath-taking reading experience ... Nesbo is the master when it comes to building a long and increasingly steep dramatic curve...The pace in The Thirst is somewhat calmer than in the previous Harry Hole books, more of a waltz than a rock and roll, until we're a bit more than halfway through. But from there on, it's full on action with blood gushing and splattering until the last page is turned. Verdens Gang, Norway Jo Nesbo is on top form...[The Thirst is] a spell-binding story about brutal crimes and ambitions gone astray. Dagbladet, Norway One cannot but rejoice at this reunion with Jo Nesbo's Harry Hole. Krimifan.dk, Denmark Everything that others do, Jo Nesbo can do better ... When it seems as though everything is about to be resolved in [The Thirst], most other writers would be satisfied with their work. With Jo Nesbo, the ride will still go on for 150 more pages. Dagsavisen, Norway The Thirst combines the best of American and Nordic crime fiction ... Harry Hole is a criminal investigator with a steady salary and civil servant status. But he's also made of mythological hero material. Jyllands-Posten, Denmark
