From the Publisher:
The electrifying first appearance of Jo Nesbø?s detective, Harry Hole.

Inspector Harry Hole of the Oslo Crime Squad is dispatched to Sydney to observe a murder case. Harry is free to offer assistance, but he has firm instructions to stay out of trouble. The victim is a twenty-three year old Norwegian woman who is a minor celebrity back home. Never one to sit on the sidelines, Harry befriends one of the lead detectives, and one of the witnesses, as he is drawn deeper into the case. Together, they discover that this is only the latest in a string of unsolved murders, and the pattern points toward a psychopath working his way across the country. As they circle closer and closer to the killer, Harry begins to fear that no one is safe, least of all those investigating the case.
Author Bio
Jo Nesbo
Jo Nesbø is widely recognized, both in his native Norway and around the globe, for his bleak and sometimes gruesomely violent crime novels. Although he has told interviewers that he dislikes being lumped in with other Scandinavian writers of the genre, he understands that impulse. "It may have to do with the storytelling tradition in Scandinavia," he has explained. "The cliché is that we have these long dark nights where people stay in and tell each other stories--horror stories, fairy tales, dark stuff. . . . Maybe there's something to that." The son of a librarian and a businessman, Nesbø grew up in the Norwegian town of Molde, and as a youth he played soccer in Norway's Premier League. He badly damaged his knee at age 19, however, and with pro soccer no longer an option, he earned a bachelor's degree in economics and embarked on a career as a stockbroker. Concurrently, he and his brother Knut played in a rock band, Di Derre, which landed several songs on the European music charts. A skilled lyricist, Nesbø was approached by a publisher to write a memoir about his life in the band. Instead, he became engrossed in writing a crime novel, DER FLEDERMAUSMAN ("The Bat Man"), which was published in Norway in 1997. The book introduced Harry Hole, an alcoholic loner who is nonetheless one of Oslo's top detectives. Nesbø has since written several other books featuring Hole; the first to be published in the U.S. was THE REDBREAST, which was translated in 2007. A later book, THE SNOWMAN, has been optioned by Hollywood. In addition to his crime fiction, Nesbø is the author of a series of children's books featuring a zany inventor named Doctor Proctor.
