    Phantom: A Harry Hole Thriller is the continuation of the Harry Hole series, with Harry trying to fight his way out of a new set of dangerous circumstances.

    Summary Of The Book

    Harry Hole, a part of the Oslo police force, has had no end of trouble with criminals in Oslo and is forced to flee to Hong Kong. He hopes that the shadows of his past will leave him alone and that he can begin life afresh there. However, things begin to take a turn for the worse and Hole is forced to return to Oslo.

    Hole almost loses his life in the previous book of the series, and so Phantom: A Harry Hole Thriller finds him having returned to Hong Kong for a spell of self-imposed exile. When in Hong Kong, he hears that the son of his girlfriend has been arrested for murder.

    Oleg, the son of Hole’s lady love Rakel Fauke, has been convicted for the murder of his flatmate Gusto. Hole has become something of a father figure to the young Oleg and naturally comes to his aid. This edition of Phantom: A Harry Hole Thriller sees Hole returning to Norway to try and acquit Oleg.

    It is not easy, however, as the Oslo police force does not want Hole back. This makes him take a line of his own, pursuing independent investigations. However, these investigations are hampered by the fact that the criminals in Oslo don’t want Hole back, either. He is being shadowed practically the moment he returns.

    How does Hole keep ahead of the police and his criminal adversaries? Does he manage to get Oleg out of trouble, proving that he isn’t guilty? Phantom: A Harry Hole Thriller is a thriller that is fast-paced and gripping. This book has been translated from Norwegian 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...
