Not all angels are heaven sent. I am one such angel, and I have come to pass judgement on the living, and the dead...

A report of a rare and unusual gun - a type favoured by assassins - being smuggled into the country sparks Detective Harry Hole's interest. Then a former WW2 Nazi sympathizer is found with his throat cut. Next, Harry's former partner is murdered. Why had she been trying to reach Harry on the night she was killed?

As Harry's investigation unfolds, it becomes clear that the killer is hell-bent on serving his own justice. And while the link between the cases remains a mystery, one thing is certain: he must be stopped.


  • Fantastic and gripping

    I had never read any Norwegian fiction until iTunes gave me this book for free. I am now forever in debt to Apple for showing me the wonders of Jo Nesbo's book. A year later I have powered through the entire Harry Hole saga, and am now his (Jo and Harry) biggest fan girl

    An interesting read, disjointed stories knitted together to create an exciting and unexpected conclusion. Going to read some more of his work.
