Harry Hole is back in Oslo. He's been away for some time, but his ghosts have a way of catching up with him. The case that brings him back is already closed. There is no room for doubt: the young junkie was shot dead by a fellow addict. Denied permission to reopen the investigation, Harry strikes out on his own.

Synopsis

Phantom by Jo Nesbo

The murder has been solved. But has justice been done? Beneath the city's eerie tranquillity, Harry Hole discovers a trail of violence and mysterious disappearances seemingly unnoticed by the police. At every turn Harry is faced with a conspiracy of silence. The criminals don't want him back...Harry is not the only one who is interested in the case. From the moment he steps off the plane, someone is watching his every move and tracing his every call - someone who wants him silenced.

Reviews

Like a Scandinavian police version of the Jason Bourne series... a compulsive page turner... Nesbo leads us into the murky back-streets of Oslo and a world of drug addiction and smuggling, gang warfare and corrupt officialdom - all of which social context is handled with real skill by the author. Independent on Sunday Jo Nesbo writes tightly plotted, claustrophobic thrillers with plenty of snow and a brutal yet hopelessly romantic policeman hero with the wonderful name of Harry Hole... they're also exuberantly, ingeniously gruesome. -- John Preston Sunday Telegraph Phantom is arguably a much better book than any previous instalments. Nesbo wrings out the tension, by turns painful and delicious, with consummate skill. -- Davd Connett Sunday Express Nesbo's extraordinary writing power still mesmerises The Times Phantom will maintain Jo Nesbo's unstoppable momentum The Independent
