Reviews

Expertly plotted and structured...relentlessly paced...a compulsive page turner Independent on Sunday Nesbo wrings out the tension, by turns painful and delicious, with consummate skill. The surprises come like an avalanche as the end nears Sunday Express A first-class thriller...and the complex plot...contains several twists some of which will make you gasp and at least one of which will make you cry Evening Standard The relationship between Harry and Rakel is truly multifaceted, and richer in nuance than anything else in the crime genre. Phantom will maintain Jo Nesbo's unstoppable momentum -- Barry Forshaw Independent Jo Nesbo writes tightly plotted, claustrophobic thrillers with plenty of snow and a brutal yet hopelessly romantic policeman hero... They're also exuberantly, ingeniously gruesome Sunday Telegraph
