Publisher's Summary

In the depths of winter, a killer stalks the city streets. His victims are two young women, both found with twenty-four inexplicable puncture wounds, both drowned in their own blood. The crime scenes offer no clues, the media is reaching fever pitch, and the police are running out of options. There is only one man who can help them, and he doesn’t want to be found. Deeply traumatised by The Snowman investigation, which threatened the lives of those he holds most dear, Inspector Harry Hole has lost himself in the squalor of Hong Kong’s opium dens. But with his father seriously ill in hospital, Harry reluctantly agrees to return to Oslo. He has no intention of working on the case, but his instinct takes over when a third victim is found brutally murdered in a city park.
The victims appear completely unconnected to one another, but it’s not long before Harry makes a discovery: the women all spent the night in an isolated mountain hostel. And someone is picking off the guests one by one. A heart-stopping thriller from the bestselling author of the The Snowman, The Leopard is an international phenomenon that will grip you until the final page.

Exciting and captivating

Jo Nesbo's 'The Leopard' was exceptional. An excellent story, and performance by Sean Barrett as usual. It is the first Harry Hole book I have listened too and I am going to get the entire series. It had many twists and turns in the plot which I really liked. This has been the first auidobook to cause me to feel squeamish while listening to some of the 'darker' events in the book. I loved it!!

Absolutely Fantastic

Thrillers were never my genre of choice before discovery of the Millenium series. I tended to find them too much to a formula resulting in a degree of samness
Like many I suspect, I went wandering in the literary wilderness of a world without Salender on completion of the series (and a second listen). I found Joe Nesbo on the reccommendation of a friend and have no hesitation in applying the accolade of my review title to all the ones I have read so far, The Snowman, The leopard and The Redeemer.
In many ways these stories are better even than the Milenium series, especially if you take Salender out of the mix. Holer is a great main character, sufficiently floored without being a train wreck, and the writing is tight and well drawn.
Two Ticks, two gold stars, and that most extreme of accolades awarded here in New Zealand, a chocolate fish!

The Leopard

This is the first audiobook I got when I signed up to Audible.
So I wasn't sure what to expect, but I absolutely loved it! The story is gripping, with interwoven plot lines. A classic who-dunnit, with modern day themes. I couldn't stop listening to it. On the way to work, at work (during my more mundane tasks!), on the way home, in the evening.... I think it took me a week to get through, so addictive.
I also love the narrator's voice and intonation. He lulls you into the story as easily as if you were reading. He does different character's voices quite well too. I have no experience with narrators, but I thought this guy was perfect.
Very highly recommend!

The Leopard

I love Jo Nesbo' work for one simple reason it is gripping!
A little unrealistist - maybe, beautifully written in the sense of a classic then no, but a fantastically entertaining, can't stop listening too, kind of book. More on audiobook please!
