Phantom (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs.650

The latest Harry Hole thriller that follows The Leopard, Phantom challenges the weary crime detective as he returns to Oslo to find justice.

Summary Of The Book

In Phantom, Harry Hole moves to Hong Kong to live out his voluntary exile, but he returns to Norway on hearing news of a dear one being arrested for murder. Oleg is charged with the murder of his flatmate, but Harry suspects that he is innocent and he steps forward to don his investigator cap one more time. The added fact that Oleg is his romantic interest’s son compounds his involvement in this case as he feels fatherly affection for the young man.

Gusto was a junkie and he is now dead, but Nesbo uses him as a narrative device throughout the novel to explore the background and the circumstances that led to his death. The case is closed with Oleg arrested as the culprit and when he tries to reopen the investigation, the police are clearly unhelpful and deny him any relief. Harry realizes that he must rely on his capabilities and clear the air and find the real killer. But what lies ahead is a shadowy path, which challenges the drug world of Oslo, and he doesn’t know who should he trust.

And this time around, Hole’s ghosts catch up with him when at every corner a chilly discovery only adds to the mystery behind the ties of smuggling and the very nature of the product being peddled. The stakes are high as Hole suspects Oleg’s incarceration as a step by the smuggling community to hide their own doing. This means that there is something valuable at stake and the more ground Hole covers in his investigation, the more danger he finds himself entrenched in. There is also the fact that he hasn’t found the real killer yet. Will Hole manage to find the killer and solve the case of the drug trade?

Phantom was written by Nesbo in Norwegian and as such the original title, Gjenferd actually translates to ghosts. The book was translated to English by Don Bartlett.

One of Nesbo's best

Jo Nesbo is one of my favourite crime writers simply because he goes way beyond the crime and criminals to explore the innermost (often complex) thoughts of his characters, their back stories and the societal framework that influence them. Detective Harry Hole has got to be one of the most complex and compelling characters of all time.

Phantom is Nesbo at his best. The bad guys have a strong point of view, the good guys have their weaknesses and shades of grey, often black and nothing is as cut and dried as it seems - just like life. Most importantly, he does all of this while maintaining...

Phantom is Nesbo at his best. The bad guys have a strong point of view, the good guys have their weaknesses and shades of grey, often black and nothing is as cut and dried as it seems - just like life. Most importantly, he does all of this while maintaining a very engaging, fast paced and non linear narrative style, full of twists and turns that keeps you guessing right till the end.

I wonder how he will better this one but then that's what I thought after Snowman and Leopard as well :)
