The Leopard is a crime fiction novel set in a wintery Norway, and is about a killer as ruthless and stealthy as a leopard, chased by a detective who is just as intelligent as melancholic. This book is a display of human relationships and what can become of them.
Summary Of The Book
The Leopard is a sequel to one of Nesbo’s books which was published in 2007, titled The Snowman. The events of this book weathered detective Harry Hole and compelled him to flee to Hong Kong. In the present book, the gorgeous police officer Kaja Solness convinces Harry to return to Oslo, and so the story kickstarts.
Harry’s task is to hunt a gruesome serial killer. At first, this terrible murderer seems to target just women but then the body of a man is also found. In order to help him trace the killer’s background, Harry seeks help from his former partner Katrina Bratt. The ambitious Mikael Bellman is also a part of the plot as the man who wants the case to be under his jurisdiction and is thoroughly hostile towards Harry. Also, while working together, Harry and Kaja get involved in a love affair.
What brings Harry back to Oslo? Are the killings really as random as they seem? What is in store for Kaja and Harry? As the scenery shifts from Hong Kong to Oslo to Congo, new characters have a role to play, and the clock ticks faster and faster, the plot becomes more brutal, complicated, and dramatic.
The eighth novel featuring Harry Hole, this book was originally published in Norwegian in 2009, and was translated into English by Don Bartlett. Extremely violent, intricate in its storyline and full of surprises, The Leopard is a read for the brave-hearted who can endure unthinkable cruelty and cold-blooded murders for almost the entire length of the book.
