Description
The brilliant but alcoholic detective Harry Hole has embarrassed his Oslo police force, and for his sins he's been reassigned to mundane surveillance tasks, in this complex, outstanding third entry in the series. But while monitoring neo-Nazi activities, Hole is drawn into a mystery with deep roots in Norway's dark past, when members of the government willingly collaborated with Nazi Germany—and disgraced old soldiers who once survived a brutal Russian winter are being murdered, one by one. Jo Nesbø's stunning, complex novel moves back and forth across 60 years, as Hole realizes he must stop a long-planned assassination. The book—the first Harry Hole novel available in English—was voted as the best Norwegian crime novel of all time by Norwegian book club readers.

"As Hole struggles to stay one step ahead of Olsen and his gang of skinheads, Nesbø takes the reader back to WWII, as Norwegians fighting for Hitler wage a losing battle on the Eastern front. When the two story lines finally collide, it's up to Hole to stop a man hell-bent on carrying out the deadly plan he hatched half a century ago in the trenches. Perfectly paced and painfully suspenseful, this crime novel illuminates not only Norway's alleged Nazi ties but also its present skinhead subculture. Readers will delight in Hole, a laconic hero as doggedly stubborn as [Michael] Connelly's Harry Bosch, and yet with a prickly appeal all his own."—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
