Publisher's Summary

Harry Hole returns in the 11th installment of the author's best-selling, electrifying crime fiction series - published in 48 languages, more than 30 million copies sold worldwide.
In Police - the last novel featuring Jo Nesbø's hard-bitten, maverick Oslo detective - a killer wreaking revenge on the police had Harry Hole fighting for the safety of the people closest to him. Now, in The Thirst, the story continues as Harry is inextricably drawn back into the Oslo police force. A serial murderer has begun targeting Tinder daters - a murderer whose MO reignites Harry's hunt for a nemesis of his past.


What the Critics Say

"John Lee at his best is about as good as it gets in audiobook narration. Jo Nesbø in top form is a showstopper, and when they're together, perfectly in sync as here, you may need a Valium to get through the final chapters.... Bravo to both of them for this thrill ride." (AudioFile)

Hole Is Back

Always happy to see a new Hole. This one pleases me until the climactic confession, which loses all plausibility. On the other hand, it's not literature, it's genre, and there's plenty of plot centered on vampirism, a nice way for Nesbo to tip his hat to that subgenre without crossing over into fantasy. So give Nesbo a pickled herring for his effort and a shot of aquavit.

Nesbo's Harry Hole Rules The Genre

I read and listen to plenty of wonderful authors, particularly in Mystery/Police Procedurals. Few if any approach Jo Nesbo' Harry Hole series for characters and intriguing mystery. With the exception of the second and third in the long series, Cockroaches and Red Breast, each of the novels is a 5 star adventure.

The Thirst is one of the better storylines, featuring chilling and horrific murders, great police work and a great conclusion. The suspense is masterful. In other words, if this is your first novel in the series, you will not miss a thing. If this is your 12th venture, you will not be disappointed.
