From the Publisher
The thrilling follow-up to Jo Nesbo's #1 bestseller Phantom.
Several police officers are found murdered at the scene of an old and unsolved murder case that they were involved in investigating. The killings are extremely brutal and bestial. The police have no leads. What's more, they're missing their best investigator. A severely wounded man in a coma is kept alive at a hospital in Oslo. The room is guarded by the police and the identity of the patient is kept secret.
About the Author
JO NESBO is a musician, songwriter, economist and author. His first crime novel featuring Harry Hole was published in Norway in 1997 and was an instant hit, winning the Glass Key Award for best Nordic crime novel (an accolade shared with Peter Høeg, Henning Mankell and Stieg Larsson).
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER “Ten books on, Jo Nesbo’s Harry Hole series just keeps getting better.... This plot has people, pacing, and place that keep the action moving right up to the final chapter. A must for Harry Hole fans and a great place to start for those who haven’t discovered this superb series.” —Margaret Cannon, The Globe and Mail “A superb piece of suspense writing in the Thomas Harris vein.” —Barry Forshaw, The Independent “After 9 previous novels featuring inspector Harry Hole, this pyrotechnically assured style of writing should come as no surprise, but the delight in reading a new Nesbo novel is that he never fails to surprise…. It’s a dizzyingly taut feat of storytelling…. Nesbo’s trademark intensity never flags throughout the roller-coaster waves of this highly enjoyable ride.” —Daneet Steffens, The Boston Globe “One hell of a thriller…. Nesbo 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) “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.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred review)“Police is a fast-paced crime novel with a great deal of exhilaration and suspense…. A spiral of action that never seems to end. It is impressively executed and as a craftsmanship considered
