INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER • In this “invigorating must-read” installment (Newsweek) of the New York Times bestselling series, Inspector Harry Hole investigates a serial killer targeting Oslo’s police officers.
For years, detective Harry Hole has been at the center of every major criminal investigation in Oslo. His brilliant insights and dedication to his job have saved countless lives over the years. But as the killer grows increasingly bold and the media reaction increasingly hysterical, the detective is nowhere to be found. This time, when those he loves and values most are facing terrible danger, Harry is in no position to protect anyone—least of all himself.

        August 26, 2013
        The life of Insp. Harry Hole, who was shot in the head by his surrogate son in the finale of 2012’s Phantom, hangs in the balance for much of Nesbø’s powerful 10th novel featuring the Oslo homicide cop. Secondary players who have helped out along the way step into the spotlight: forensics expert and facial-recognition whiz Beate Lønn; the brilliant but psychologically unstable detective Katrine Bratt; Harry’s longtime friend Bjørn Holm; and the slippery new police chief, Mikael Bellman. The police force itself is at stake when it becomes apparent that the seemingly unrelated deaths of police officers are actually part of a larger pattern: each officer was slain at the site of an unsolved crime. 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. Author tour. 150,000-copy announced first printing. Agent: Niclas Salomonsson, Salomonsson Agency (Sweden).

        January 6, 2014
        For roughly a third of Nesbø’s new novel, Oslo police detective Harry Hole is missing—not surprising considering he was felled by a headshot at the end of 2012’s Phantom. In his stead, associates struggle to work around venal police chief Mikael Bellman while hunting for a vicious serial killer who’s slaughtering police officers. Narrator John Lee provides the book’s characters with pitch-perfect voices. He catches forensic expert Beate Lonn’s arch smugness and sense of superiority, and Bellman’s self-satisfied purr, rich in vanity when he is in control, obsequious in the presence of power. When Harry eventually appears, more or less recovered, he’s a different man: sober, contemplative, and retired from police work. Those changes are present in Lee’s vocal interpretation, and, as Harry is eventually drawn deep into the killer’s grim game, anxiety, ire, and even a touch of fear are added. Lee is able to adapt his voice to any situation. It hardens during the book’s descriptions of particularly grotesque and disturbing murder scenes, softens for romantic moments involving Harry and his true love, Rakel. Perhaps more important, his precise diction, pacing, and emphases do wonders in presenting this particularly complex crime novel that consists of at least four separate plots that unfold simultaneously, all complete with clues, twists, turns, red herrings, and plenty of misdirection. A Knopf hardcover.
