Despite his best efforts to get as far away as possible--physically and mentally--from the traumas of his life as a hunter of serial killers in Norway, Detective Harry Hole cannot completely forget or be forgotten. In fact, he is needed. A horrifyingly vicious crime has been committed and the officials are desperate Harry's help. Oslo police officer Kaja Solness tracks Harry down in the opium den he's dug for himself in Hong Kong. Dragging him out of his stupor, she informs Harry of the murder back home, and the fact that his father is very sick. Meanwhile, another victim suffers a tortuous death, and the only connection between these crimes is that the victims each spent a night in a remote hotel in the north of the country. This is Nesbo's eighth addition to the Harry Hole series--the sixth translated into English by Don Bartlett (the first two books have yet to receive translation)--and Nesbo keeps getting better and better, as his noir hero gets darker and darker.
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.


"THE LEOPARD still contains real pleasures, with three fantastic twists and a final 150 pages that run by at a blistering pace." - Charles Finch 12/22/2012
