A heart-stopping thriller from the international crime fiction star and top 5 bestseller that the Independent has called 'The next Stieg Larsson'.

"Comparisons with Stieg Larsson have been made, but Nesbo's plots move quickly, carry more punch, and really do keep you guessing to the final page" Daily Mirror "A cracking good thriller...that will keep you gripped to the last page" Guardian "Outstanding... Probably the best big crime novel you could lay your hands on this year" BBC Radio 4 "Nesbo's novels keep going when you think there can't be any more twists to follow. Scenes switch from the avalanche-threatened ravines and mountain cabins of back-country Norway, close to oil-rich Stavanger and metropolitan Oslo, to an active volcano in Africa" Times Literary Supplement "Original Norwegian noir...absorbing" -- Tom Huddleston Time Out
