The police urgently need Harry Hole. A killer is stalking Oslo's streets. Police officers are being slain at the scenes of crimes they once investigated but failed to solve. The murders are brutal, the media reaction hysterical. But this time, Harry can't help. Shot in the head in the previous installment (Phantom, 2012), his life hangs in the balance. Now, with those he loves most facing terrible danger, Harry is not in a position to protect anyone. Least of all himself...A brilliant addition to this long-running series.
