His old nemesis is back but behaving out of character. Harry Hole will come out of retirement at the cost of all else, just to solve this case. He has been invited by the Chief of Police to set up a task force to run alongside the police investigation. Will he discover something far more sinister than just a murderer who has come out of hiding?
There’s a new killer on the streets…A woman is found murdered after an internet date. The marks left on her body show the police that they are dealing with a particularly vicious killer.He’s in your house… He’s in your roomUnder pressure from the media to find the murderer, the force know there’s only one man for the job. But Harry Hole is reluctant to return to the place that almost took everything from him. Until he starts to suspect a connection between this killing and his one failed case.He’s out for bloodWhen another victim is found, Harry realises he will need to put everything on the line if he’s to finally catch the one who got away.
Jo Nesbo once again delights with the written word. The translation is excellent and the story was really good. The 538 pages of this novel kept me hooked and I cannot wait for the next Harry Hole installment.
