Waterstones Says

Jo Nesbo’s twelfth Harry Hole mystery is a game-changer for the acclaimed series. An encounter with an old enemy sets the stage for a white knuckle ride more terrifying and disorientating than anything the maverick detective has had to face thus far. Knife is an unmissable instalment for fans of Nordic noir’s master craftsman.

Harry Hole's deadliest enemy is back... and out for blood.

Harry is in a bad place: Rakel has left him, he's working cold cases and notorious murderer Svein Finne is back on the streets.

The first killer Harry put behind bars is out to get him.

Harry is responsible for the many years Finne spent in prison but now he's free and ready to pick up where he left off.

A man like Harry better watch his back.

When Harry wakes up with blood on his hands, and no memory of what he did the night before, he knows everything is only going to get worse...

MEDIA REVIEWS

'This is the king of Norwegian crime on top form.' - The Observer

'Nesbo, sharp-witted as ever, keeps the complex, burnished narrative...a knife-edge... Nesbo remains the king of Scandinavian noir.' - Evening Standard

'[Knife] may be Nesbo's best storytelling yet. It's not just clever; it's diabolical, and let's be glad it is, because the corkscrewing plot provides a measure of relief from the pain on view in this uncompromisingly intense and brilliant novel.' -  Booklist

'Knife shows Nesbo back on form... This is a police procedural that breaks the bounds of the format with abandon... Nesbo manhandles the reader into contented...submission.' - Financial Times 

'Knife sees the return of Harry's old nemesis Svein Finne... The plot never goes the way you think it will, as Nesbo delights in playing tricks on the reader.' - Mail on Sunday 

'This is Scandi noir as dark as obsidian with an emotional wreck of a protagonist.' - i

'You can imagine the worst (and you will probably be right), but the brilliant Jo Nesbo will surprise you anyway. Knife is the most unpredictable novel in the [Harry Hole] series.' - Forbes, Russia

“Red Herrings all over Norway”

This is a great detective story. Clearly red herrings are commonplace in Norway and without giving any spoilers there are plenty in this book. Anyone who has followed the career of Harry Hole will know that he has a... More

“King of scandi noir”

Ok let's be honest Harry Hole is a cliche detective, and there are many similarities between him and Ian Rankin's great creation Rebus. They both like working outside the law, they are happy to use... More
