Jo Nesbo writes a powerful story. Harry Hole is a brilliant character. The action is fast, furious and not a little bloody. Attitudes, lifestyles and modern technology are all bang up to date. Put all these things together with the ingenious plotting and you have the reason why Nesbo's books are so popular. What more can I say? This latest book is in the excellent tradition of the previous ones and will be just as popular. There is an exciting unmasking of the criminal mind behind the murders before all is resolved. A little taster of what might be to come rounds off the story nicely. An excellent read.
