About this book
The latest Harry Hole novel from the bestselling Norwegian author, translated by Don Bartlett. Hole returns to Oslo after 3 years away, and requests permission to investigate a homicide. Finding the case closed, he visits the alleged killer in jail, and takes on the first impossible case of his career. Nesbo's novels have sold 9 million copies worldwide, and Martin Scorsese is rumoured to be making a film adaptation of "The Snowman".
Harry Hole is back in Oslo. He's been away for some time, but his ghosts have a way of catching up with him. The case that brings him back is already closed. There is no room for doubt: the young junkie was shot dead by a fellow addict. Denied permission to reopen the investigation, Harry strikes out on his own.
