HARRY HOLE IS BACK! A BLISTERING NEW THRILLER FROM THE NUMBER 1 BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF THE SNOWMAN AND POLICE. 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 ROOM. Under 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 BLOOD When 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. 'An expertly plotted, compelling and gripping white-knuckle ride...Nesbo deserves to be crowned the king of all crime thriller writers' Sunday Express on THE SON 'Nesbo deploys all the key ingredients of a cracking good thriller with expertise and verve. The ticking clock, the tension expertly ratcheted ever upwards, the changing scenery, the constantly shifting goalposts and the effortless, triumphant outpacing of the reader's ability to guess what's going to happen will keep you gripped to the last page' Guardian on THE LEOPARD 'The undisputed king of Scandinavian crime fiction' The Times 'Scandinavian crime thrillers don't come much darker or more tense than the best-selling Harry Hole series, and this tenth outing for the Norwegian detective is the best yet' Sunday Mirror on POLICE.

About the Author

Jo Nesbo played football for Norway's premier league team Molde, but his dream of playing professionally for Spurs was dashed when he tore ligaments in his knee at the age of eighteen. After three years military service he attended business school and formed the band Di derre ('Them There'). Their second album topped the charts in Norway, but he continued working as a financial analyst, crunching numbers during the day and gigging at night. When commissioned by a publisher to write a memoir about life on the road with his band, he instead came up with the plot for his first Harry Hole crime novel, The Bat. He is regarded as one of the world's leading crime writers, with The Leopard, Phantom, Police and The Son all topping the UK bestseller charts, and his novels are published in 50 languages. The new Harry Hole thriller, THE THIRST, is published on April 20th 2017. Sign up to the Jo Nesbo newsletter for all the latest news: jonesbo.com/newsletter

Reviews

"An extremely gruesome journey to the darker recesses of human nature, this grisly treat will delight Nesbo's fans." Mirror "Fast-moving...stunning." Sunday Times "It's a big-boned, Technicolor epic in the current Nesbo style, starting adagio and ending accelerando, but with the kind of close psychological character readings that distinguished his early work." Guardian "Expertly plotted with vividly drawn characters, frenetic police chases and philosophising villains[...] Expect to be thoroughly entertained." Crime Fiction Lover "[The Thirst is] a breath-taking reading experience ... Nesbo is the master when it comes to building a long and increasingly steep dramatic curve...The pace in The Thirst is somewhat calmer than in the previous Harry Hole books, more of a waltz than a rock and roll, until we're a bit more than halfway through. But from there on, it's full on action with blood gushing and splattering until the last page is turned." Verdens Gang, Norway
