Description
(Winner of the 1998 Glass Key Award for Best Nordic Crime Novel) Finally available in English, this debut novel in the brilliant, harrowing Inspector Harry Hole series—originally written in 1997 but not translated until 2012—finds Harry dispatched to Sydney, Australia, to observe a murder case. The victim was 23-year-old Inger Holter, a Norwegian woman and a minor celebrity back home. Harry befriends Andrew Kensington, an Aboriginal Australian and a lead detective on the case, and a Swedish woman named Birgitta Enquist, who worked with Holter. Together they discover that this is only the latest in a string of unsolved murders that point to a psychopath working his way across the country. As they circle closer to the killer, Harry begins to fear that no one is safe—least of all those investigating the case.

"This is an absolute must for devotees of the riveting train wreck that is Harry Hole.... While the chronological confusion is disconcerting, it adds a layer of dramatic irony to the tale and enhances its tension and power."—Booklist(starred review)
