There's a new killer on the streets.

A woman is found murdered after an internet date. The marks left on her body show the police that they are dealing with a particularly vicious killer.

He's in your house.

He's in your room.

Under pressure from the media to find the murderer, the force know there's only one man for the job. But Harry Hole is reluctant to return to the place that almost took everything from him. Until he starts to suspect a connection between this killing and his one failed case.

He's out for blood.

When another victim is found, Harry realises he will need to put everything on the line if he's to finally catch the one who got away.

Probably the most anticipated crime release of 2017, and after a pause of several years, The Thirst marks Jo Nesbo’s return to the character that made his name - Harry Hole. 

‘Resistance is futile: Nesbo has some rare, Ancient Mariner-type gift for holding his readers completely in thrall until he has finished with us.’ – The Sunday Express

"An extremely gruesome journey to the darker recesses of human nature, this grisly treat will delight Nesbo's fans" * Mirror *
"It's a big-boned, Technicolor epic in the current Nesbo style, starting adagio and ending accelerando, but with the kind of close psychological character readings that distinguished his early work" * Guardian *
"An epic tale that will delight fans of the bestselling series... There is always a risk that if you resurrect a much-loved series after a long break it will not reach its previous highs. But The Thirst is Nesbo at his glorious best with even the minor characters wonderfully drawn. This tense, nerve-shredding tale is impossible to put down as it hurtles towards a stunning finale. Nesbo is one of the best thriller writers on the planet" -- Charlotte Heathcote * Daily Express *
"Gripping from the get-go, deliciously dark and expertly plotted, this is Nesbo at his brilliant best" * Heat *
"Expertly plotted with vividly drawn characters, frenetic police chases and philosophising villains[...] Expect to be thoroughly entertained." * Crime Fiction Lover *
