THE HUNT IS ON AND THE POLICE ARE RUNNING OUT OF TIME.
Two women are missing, their only connection being they attended the same party, hosted by a notorious real-estate magnate. When one of the women is found murdered, the police discover an unusual signature left by the killer, giving them reason to suspect he will strike again.
THEY'RE FACING A KILLER UNLIKE ANY OTHER.
And catching him calls for a detective like no other. But the legendary Harry Hole is gone.
Struck off the force, down and out in Los Angeles, it seems that nothing can entice him back to Oslo. Until the woman who saved Harry's life is put in grave danger, and he has no choice but to return to the city that haunts him and hunt for the murderer.
TO CATCH HIM WILL PUSH HARRY TO THE LIMIT.
He'll need to bring together a misfit team of former operatives to do what he can't do alone: stop an unstoppable killer.
But as the evidence mounts, it becomes clear that there is more to this case than meets the eye...
AND FOR HARRY, THIS JUST GOT PERSONAL.
