    Book details



After the horrors of a case that nearly cost him his life, Harry Hole left Oslo and the police force far behind him. Now he's back, but the case he's come to investigate is already closed, and the suspect already behind bars.


Denied permission to reopen the investigation, Harry strikes out on his own, quickly discovering a trail of violence and mysterious disappearances apparently unnoticed by the police. At every turn, Harry is faced with a wall of silence.


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


"Expertly plotted and structured...relentlessly paced...a compulsive page turner" (Independent on Sunday)"Nesbo wrings out the tension, by turns painful and delicious, with consummate skill. The surprises come like an avalanche as the end nears" (Sunday Express)"A first-class thriller...and the complex plot...contains several twists some of which will make you gasp and at least one of which will make you cry" (Evening Standard)"The relationship between Harry and Rakel is truly multifaceted, and richer in nuance than anything else in the crime genre. Phantom will maintain Jo Nesbo's unstoppable momentum" (Barry Forshaw Independent)"Jo Nesbo writes tightly plotted, claustrophobic thrillers with plenty of snow and a brutal yet hopelessly romantic policeman hero... They're also exuberantly, ingeniously gruesome" (Sunday Telegraph) --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

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.

    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

    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.
