In this electrifying new thriller from the author of Police and The Snowman, Inspector Harry Hole hunts down a serial murderer who targets his victims . . . on Tinder.

The murder victim, a self-declared Tinder addict. The one solid clue—fragments of rust and paint in her wounds—leaves the investigating team baffled.

Two days later, there is a second murder: a woman of the same age, a Tinder user, an eerily similar scene.

The chief of police knows there is only one man for this case. But Harry Hole is no longer with the force. He promised the woman he loves, and he promised himself, that he’d never go back: not after his last case, which put the people closest to him in grave danger. But there is something about these murders that catches his attention, something in the details that the investigators have missed. For Harry, it’s like hearing “the voice of a man he was trying not to remember.” Now, despite his promises, despite everything he risks, Harry throws himself back into the hunt for a figure who haunts him, the monster who got away.

Quotes & Awards

  • “John Lee at his best is about as good as it gets in audiobook narration. Jo Nesbø in top form is a showstopper, and when they’re together, perfectly in sync as here, you may need a Valium to get through the final chapters…Bravo to both of them for this thrill ride. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.”

    AudioFile

  • “Jo Nesbø certainly has the magic touch when it comes to psycho serial killers…Intricate plotting keeps the story shifting under our feet…If you can stand the gory details and hang on during the switchback turns, the payoff is its own reward.”

    New York Times Book Review

  • “A big-boned, Technicolor epic…starting adagio and ending accelerando.”

    Guardian (London)

  • “A gripping, way-scary crime novel…This one will keep readers awake deep into the night.”

    Booklist (starred review)

  • “Exceptional…Nesbø depicts a heartbreakingly conflicted Harry, who both wants to forget the horrors he’s trying to prevent and knows he has to remember them in all their grim detail.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “Explosive…twists within twists within twists…Yet more evidence of why Scandinavian crime writers continue to dominate international bestseller lists.”

    Kirkus Reviews
