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

Lovereading view...

The latest instalment of the Harry Hole thrillers is as visceral and violent as ever as the characters try to hide their guilt or try to solve the grim crimes perpetrated on the police officers. Sequel to Phantom, the crime team wants Harry Hole back. He is fighting his demons and trying to live a happy life with Rakel and her son Oleg. But back he must come. This is a big book that is very hard to put down so be prepared for a late night. Brilliant, dark and nasty.

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

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.

Reviews

'Scandinavian crime thrillers don't come much darker or more tense than the best-selling Harry Hole series, and this tenth outing for the Norwegian detective is the best yet' -- Deirdre O'Brien Sunday Mirror

'Boasts the customary ability to render attempts at work and sleep futile until it is finished -- Jake Kerridge' Daily Telegraph
