Description
While Norwegian inspector Harry Hole lies low in Asia, escaping the trauma of his previous case (The Snowman) in Hong Kong's opium dens, two women are found dead in Oslo, each one drowned in her own blood. Crime Squad officer Kaja Solness personally fetches Harry, who only becomes involved when a third woman, a Member of Parliament, is found decapitated with a hanging rope. After a fourth victim dies, Harry believes he knows who the killer is—but if he's wrong, it could cost him and Kaja their lives. One of Europe's most critically acclaimed and successful crime writers, Jo Nesbø won the highly prestigious Glass Key Award for Best Nordic Crime Novel with his first novel featuring the brilliant but alcoholic detective Harry Hole, while The Redbreast, his first Harry Hole mystery in English, was voted as the best Norwegian crime novel of all time by Norwegian book club readers.

"The Leopard rewards you with a finale as unexpected and thought-provoking as any in recent mystery-fiction memory."—SFChronicle

"The action in The Leopard sweeps from a volcano in Africa to the remotest snow-covered mountains of Norway, but many of the novel's best parts involve Harry's silent struggles.... There's always a twist, always a surprise, always a variation on a theme."—Dallas Morning News

"Nesbø also deepens the central mystery at the heart of Harry's pursuits: which is not so much the truth about himself, but rather, whether he can learn to live with that truth. He is a giant of the Scandinavian mystery."—Boston Globe
