[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.

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
