Details: Product Description THERE'S A NEW KILLER ON THE STREETS, AND HE'S OUT FOR BLOOD.       The murder victim, a self-declared Tinder addict. The one solid clue--fragments of rust and paint in her wounds--leaves the investigating team baffled.      Two days later, there's a second murder: a woman of the same age, a Tinder user, an eerily similar scene.       The chief of police knows there's only one man for this case. But Harry Hole is no longer with the force. He promised the woman he loves, and he promised himself, that he'd never go back: not after his last case, which put the people closest to him in grave danger.      But there's something about these murders that catches his attention, something in the details that the investigators have missed. For Harry, it's like hearing "the voice of a man he was trying not to remember." Now, despite his promises, despite everything he risks, Harry throws himself back into the hunt for a figure who haunts him, the monster who got away. Review Winner of the 2017 Nordic Noir Thriller of the Year Award “His outstanding series featuring Detective Inspector Harry Hole has secured Jo Nesbo the undisputed position of Scandinavia’s leading crime writer.” —Nordic Noir Thriller of the Year Award citation “[V]ery good, one of Nesbo’s best. . . . Gory, disturbing, nightmare-inducing and terrific.” — The Times   “It’s a big-boned, technicolour epic in the current Nesbo style, starting  adagio and ending  accelerando, but with the kind of close psychological character readings that distinguished his early work.” — The Guardian   “An extremely gruesome journey to the darker recesses of human nature, this grisly treat will delight Nesbo’s fans.” — Sunday Mirror (UK)   “[D]eliciously dark.” — The Telegraph   “[R]eaders can rejoice that one of the most iconic protagonists of modern crime fiction is back on the beat. . . . In his eleventh book featuring Hole, Nesbo deepens the already-complex portrait of his antihero. . . . Nesbo creates a fine balance between action and tension, with surprises lurking in unexpected corners that provide an edgy and visceral read. He’s a master of structure, style and no-pages-wasted plotting. But Nesbo’s greatest strength as a novelist is the way he places two opposing forces in battle: the perverse criminal and the compulsive detective. In Nesbo’s consistently excellent Hole series, The Thirst may well be the pinnacle.” — Paste   “[Y]ou’ll want to sink your teeth into The Thirst and not let go.” — The Times of Northwest Indiana   “Jo Nesbo has ripped the throat out of the serial-killer genre. He’s exsanguinated it, soaking up every dark pleasure and wringing them out onto the page. There’s no need to ever read another one, Nesbo has so completely deconstructed the trope with a multi-dimensional novel that blurs lines among crime, psychological, procedural and, yes, horror thrillers. . . . [B]rilliant, shifting narrative. . . . Nesbo has a penchant for doing what few writers dare . . . So when the threat comes in The Thirst, you know anything is possible. . . . The Thirst ends with a tantalizing promise and a new threat. What’s coming will be dark and bloody, that much is certain. In the meantime, readers can clear their shelves of serial-killer books. Thomas Harris, Stieg Larsson, John Sandford. Might as well use them as door stops. Unless you are intentionally seeking disappointment. Because after this one, they just won’t compare.” — The Arizona Republic   “What distinguishes Jo Nesbo . . . is his wry sense of humour. He not only provides a super-complex plot with plenty of twists (two within the first twelve pages) but also skillfully continues the lives of the all-too-fallible characters we have grown to love and hate.” — London Evening Standard About the Author JO NESBO is a musician, songwriter, economist, and #1 New York Times bestselling author. He has won the Raymond Chandler Award for Lifetime Achievement as well as many other awards. His bo
