Synopses & Reviews
A brilliantly tense thriller from Scandinavian crime writing superstar Jo Nesbo.
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.
About the Author
Jo Nesbo played football for Norway's premier league team Modle, but his dream of playing professionally for Spurs was dashed when he tore crucial 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 Europe's leading crime writers, with both The Leopard
topping the UK bestseller charts, and his novels are published in 40 countries.
