In Nesbo's gripping follow-up to his bestselling The Leopard (2012), former Oslo detective Harry Hole tries to clear his ex-lover's son of murder. A drug dealer named Gusto has been murdered, and his best friend, Oleg, also a drug dealer, stands accused of the crime. Harry has known Oleg since he was a little boy, and refuses to believe that he could have committed murder. With the help of some of his remaining friends on the force, Harry launches his own private investigation--with devastating consequences. A sublimely shivery tour-de-force.
