|In the thirteenth novel in the New York Times bestselling series, brilliant rogue police investigator Harry Hole is back, this time as an outsider assembling his own team to help find a serial killer.
"Jo Nesbo is one of today's most interesting thriller writers, and Harry Hole is an all-time great character." -Lee Child
Harry has gone to Los Angeles to drink himself to death, in the wake of his life back in Oslo falling to pieces. He's nearly managed to, but then Harry decides to help an older film actress, Lucille, free herself from the grip of a drug cartel she owes a million dollars. In return she gives him shelter, company and a tailored suit.
In Oslo, two girls have disappeared and been found murdered. One of the suspects is a well-known real estate magnate, and investigator Katrine Bratt wants to bring in the country's foremost serial killings expert. But the idea of collaborating with Harry Hole is out of the question for the chief of police. The real-estate magnate under suspicion, on the other hand, wants to hire Harry as a private investigator to clear his name. Harry declines, but that's before the drug cartel takes Lucille hostage. If Harry clears the real estate magnate, he will award Harry a bonus big enough to cover Lucille's debt. So Harry puts together his own kind of investigative team, consisting of a cocaine-dealing childhood friend, a corrupt police officer and a cancer-stricken psychologist. The drug cartel has given them ten days. The clock is ticking, and a blood moon has been forecast over Oslo.

"Jo Nesbø slowly but surely proves what a superb master of suspense he is. . . . Killing Moon is a Harry Hole novel of the highest class. The cliffhanger for the next installment is already in place, so there is little doubt here. Harry Hole is back to stay." -Verdens Gang (Norway)
"It's hard to reinvent the crime story, but Jesus does this one pack a punch! Harry Hole is finally back after a three-year hiatus and there isn't a single dull second when the murder mystery has to be solved at record speed in Killing Moon. Jo Nesbø is just wild." -Romsdals Budstikke (Norway)
"Jo Nesbø is an ingenious plotter and tricks the reader time and time again. . . . The twisted universe bustles with life and suspense from the first page on and you almost compulsively keep turning the pages." -Dagens Næringsliv (Norway)
"Nesbø has a sense of flair, a finesse, a wealth of ideas and plot construction that puts him in his own league among his crime writer colleagues." -Adresseavisen (Norway)
