Descirption: "With Henning Mankell having written his last Wallander novel and Stieg Larsson no longer with us, I have had to make the decision on whom to confer the title of best current Nordic writer of crime fiction . . . Jo Nesbø wins." -Marcel Berlins, The Times (U.K.)

Two young women are found murdered in Oslo, both drowned in their own blood. Media coverage quickly reaches fever pitch: Could this be the work of a serial killer?

The crime scenes offer no coherent clues, the police investigation is stalled, and the one man who might be able to help doesn't want to be found. Traumatized by his last case, Inspector Harry Hole has lost himself in the squalor of Hong Kong's opium dens. Yet when he is compelled, at last, to return to Norway-his father is dying-Harry's buried instincts begin to take over. After a female MP is discovered brutally murdered, nothing can keep him from the investigation.

There is little to go on: a piece of rope, a scrap of wool, a bit of gravel, an unexpected connection between the victims. And Harry will soon come to understand that he is dealing with a psychopath for whom "insanity is a vital retreat," someone who will put him to the test-in both his professional and personal lives-as never before.

Ruthlessly intelligent and suspenseful, The Leopard is Jo Nesbø's most electrifying novel yet-absolutely gripping from first to last.

Amazon.com Review
Amazon Best Books of the Month, December 2011: At the end of his previous thriller, The Snowman, Jo Nesbo's Inspector Harry Hole was a ravaged mess. At the start of The Leopard, we find Hole hiding away from the world, smoking opium in the squalor of Hong Kong's back alleys. A pretty young police officer drags him reluctantly back to Norway to pursue another serial killer, this one more twisted and vicious than the Snowman. Despite some far-fetched scenes, Hole is a damaged, soulful, and believable character. And Nesbo is proving to be a major talent, an eloquent writer who,, with the end of Steig Larsson's trilogy and the retirement of Henning Mankell's brooding detective Kurt Wallander, seems poised to become heir to the title "King of the Nordic thriller." --Neal Thompson

Review
A Booklist Best Crime Novel of 2012

"Maddeningly addictive." --Vanity Fair

"Meaty, gripping, full of tantalizing twists." -Associated Press

"A true page-turner, and a worthy sequel to The Snowman." -Newark Star-Ledger

"The Leopard rewards you with a finale as unexpected and thought-provoking as any in recent mystery-fiction memory." -San Francisco Chronicle
 
"A cracking good thriller. . . . Immerse yourself and enjoy the ride." -The Guardian (London)

"The action in The Leopard sweeps from a volcano in Africa to the remotest snow-covered mountains of Norway, but many of the novel's best parts involve Harry's silent struggles. . . . There's always a twist, always a surprise, always a variation on a theme." -The Dallas Morning Ne

 "Nesbø also deepens the central mystery at the heart of Harry's pursuits: which is not so much the truth about himself, but rather, whether he can learn to live with that truth. He is a giant of the Scandinavian mystery." -The Boston Globe
 
"Outstanding. . . . Nesbø moves the action easily from Hong Kong to Norway, with side trips to the Democratic Republic of Congo, without ever losing the plot's sense of urgency."
-Publishers Weekly (starred)
 
"This one stands up to the ante one more time. . . .  Crime fiction's most tortured and compelling hero. Alas, no armor exists strong enough to keep Harry from his demons, or the rest of us from Harry." -Booklist (starred)
 
"Comparisons with Stieg Larsson have been made, but Nesbø's plots move quickly, carry more punch, and really do keep you guessing to the final page." -Daily Mirror

"The Leopard's unflagging narrative tension, breathtaking surprises and many confrontations with half-suspected treachery . . . are superb." -The Independent
