Publisher Description

Finalist -- GoodReads Choice Award -- Mystery/Thriller

Harry Hole returns--or does he?--in a terrifyingly paced, vertiginous new roller coaster of a thriller by the internationally best-selling author of The Snowman and The Redeemer, "the king of Scandinavian crime fiction" (Kirkus). 

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 . . . For years, detective Harry Hole has been at the center 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 is not in a position to protect anyone. 

Least of all himself . . .

“Having upped the ante with the previous novel in the Harry Hole series, the author goes for broke here. Arguably the most densely packed and ambitiously plotted novel in a series that has been getting darker with each volume, the tenth novel featuring Harry Hole is a companion sequel to its predecessor…A surprise ending promises a fresh start for a series that had appeared to end with its previous novel.”

— Kirkus Reviews (starred review) 


  • “The chills are palpable in this nerve-­racking thriller.”

    — New York Times Book Review
  • A dizzyingly taut feat of storytelling.

    — The Boston Globe
  • An invigorating must-read.

    — Newsweek
  • The chills are palpable in this nerve-­racking thriller.

    — The New York Times Book Review
  • A hugely enjoyable game of cat-and-mouse. . . . Nesbo manages the book’s unnervingly scary scenes so well he should consider tackling a horror novel.

    — Richmond Times Dispatch
  • 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.

    — Sunday Mirror (UK)
  • Nesbø's dark and gripping crime series featuring the Oslo detective Harry Hole [is] fascinating readers with its ever-deepening portrait, Breaking Bad–style, of a hero's gradual transition to an antihero.

    — Chicago Tribune
  • So dark, intense, and bone chilling that immersion in [Nesbø’s] world for an extended period is not for the sensitive.

    — Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
  • A multi-layered and intertwining story that makes your head spin, while delivering a masterclass in suspenseful writing. . . .  Simply sit back and enjoy every twist and turn.

    — Sunday Express (UK)
  • An electrifying ride. . . . A master of suspense, red herrings and false trails, as well as a mesmerizing storyteller. Nesbø is in a league of his own.

    — The Sydney Morning Herald
  • Plot twists worthy of a möbius strip.

    — Bloomberg News
  • Attempts at work and sleep [are] futile until it is finished.

    — The Daily Telegraph
  • “Ingenious…Nesbø messes with everyone here, especially the reader, but furious as we’d like to be, in the end we’re willing supplicants.”

    — Booklist (starred review)
  • “In Nesbø’s able hands, Harry’s absence is a character unto itself, but this will only make readers more eager to learn Harry’s fate.”

    — Publishers Weekly


  • A USA Today bestseller
  • A New York Times bestseller
  • A Publishers Weekly bestseller
