    Book details


Harry Hole is back in Oslo. He's been away for some time, but his ghosts have a way of catching up with him. The case that brings him back is already closed. There is no room for doubt: the young junkie was shot dead by a fellow addict.


Denied permission to reopen the investigation, Harry strikes out on his own. Beneath the city's eerie tranquillity, he discovers a trail of violence and mysterious disappearances seemingly unnoticed by the police. At every turn Harry is faced with a conspiracy of silence.


Harry is not the only one who is interested in the case. From the moment he steps off the plane, someone is watching his every move and tracing his every call.


"Like a Scandinavian police version of the Jason Bourne series... a compulsive page turner... Nesbo leads us into the murky back-streets of Oslo and a world of drug addiction and smuggling, gang warfare and corrupt officialdom – all of which social context is handled with real skill by the author." (Independent on Sunday)"Jo Nesbo writes tightly plotted, claustrophobic thrillers with plenty of snow and a brutal yet hopelessly romantic policeman hero with the wonderful name of Harry Hole... they're also exuberantly, ingeniously gruesome." (John Preston Sunday Telegraph)"Phantom is arguably a much better book than any previous instalments. Nesbo wrings out the tension, by turns painful and delicious, with consummate skill." (Davd Connett Sunday Express)"Nesbo’s extraordinary writing power still mesmerises" (The Times)"Phantom will maintain Jo Nesbo’s unstoppable momentum" (The Independent)

Review Text

  • By Jim J-R on 29 May 2014

    The ninth Harry Hole mystery is the first one I've managed to read in the right order - I finally have the full backstory of the previous eight books, and felt that it was definitely a useful background for this plot.The book is set three years after the previous entry, during which time Harry has been absent - now he returns to Norway on a personal mission. The character is really well written and (I know I've said this before) this is probably the best book in the series.The plot is intricate and keeps you guessing, and as a reader you have a real emotional attachment to the action that some of the previous books have lacked. I have to admit though that having reached the end, I'm still not entirely clear what the resolution was. Maybe I'll find out when I get to the next book!

    Harry Hole has never been the life and soul of the party, so I did not expect a happy go lucky Hole to return from his three year sabbatical in Bangkok. What we get is Harry Hole at his most raw. The hero and anti hero rolled into one. Jo Nesbo expresses Hole`s emotions brutally and passionately, especially when dealing with his addictions and cravings, but underneath it all he is just trying to do the best for the woman and her son who mean everything to him. Unfortunately his attempts at finally getting the things that he has always wanted, a proper family life, always appear to be just a bridge too far.This is, in my opinion, the darkest of this series, but I was absorbed by every page of it.

    How does a author do this have you hooked from book one then you can't put any off his books down.Now onto the next one in Harry series can't wait.

  • By Mr. D. F. Macgregor on 17 April 2012

    This is the tenth Harry Hole novel and to me at least seemed different. Jo Nesbø has always had drugs as a theme but here it is the dominant one, overpowering the human relationships as drugs do in real life. At this stage in his career Hole is physically and psychologically badly damaged, and his human relationship strained almost to breaking point.The written style makes increased use of short sentences, many without a subject. The language is spare and the plot fast-moving so that the reader has to try hard to see what's going on. And on the main characters is already dead - to be joined by many others. If anyone still thought Norway to be a tranquil paradise, this will disabuse them. Chicago had nothing on Oslo - according to Nesbø.

    as good as other

  • By Pamela L. on 9 November 2013

    It has been some time since I have read a Harry Hole novel and absence really does make the heart grow fonder. What an explosion of events which catapult the reader on a relentless journey to find the killer. This is as good as it gets.
