Description

HARRY HOLE IS BACK! The blistering new SUNDAY TIMES number one bestseller!

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

    Right now my mental stability depends on whether there will be a sequel to this or not. Can't get enough of Harry Hole, especially in this different family version. Even though he's still the Harry Hole with his flaws, genius, and everything else. Amazing! Hope to read more.

    Excellent read from 1st to last page. Nesbo at his best. Excellent plot, with plenty of twists and turns and Harry Hole as much a maverick as ever. Well deserved 5*

    Having discovered Nesbos work after reading the likes of, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, I think this has to be his finest read. Gripping, in parts there is dark humour and obviously crime. Fully recommend this one and hope it's made into a movie one day
  • Loved it

    I have just finished "The Thirst" by Jo Nesbo, featuring Harry Hole. This is the latest in a series of detective stories and all are exciting as each other. With great plots, believable characters and a comparatively simple writing style the stories are accessible to anybody and provide great entertainment. I am now waiting for the next book!
