"Outstanding . . . Probably the best big crime novel you could lay your hands on this year." --BBC Radio 4 "This one stands up to the ante one more time . . . Harry Hole [is] crime fiction's most tortured and compelling hero." --Booklist (starred) "Intense . . . Nesb moves the action easily from Hong Kong to Norway, with side trips to the Democratic Republic of Congo, without ever losing the plot's sense of urgency." --Publishers Weekly (starred) "Nesb knows exactly what he's doing [in] this gripping, intricately plotted tale . . . Like all intelligent crime fiction, this book is not only about multiple murders by heinous means. It is also about legacies, most specifically about the good and evil, love and hate, passed from one generation to the next. This vivid, violent novel promises to speak on many levels to many readers." --Library Journal "In The Leopard, Nesb 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 his effortless, triumphant outpacing of the reader's ability to guess what's going to happen will keep you gripped to the last page." --The Guardian (U.K.)
