The Bat (#1): The electrifying first appearance of Jo Nesbs detective, Harry Hole.

Inspector Harry Hole of the Oslo Crime Squad is dispatched to Sydney to observe a murder case. Harry
is free to offer assistance, but he has firm instructions to stay out of trouble. The victim is a twenty-
three year old Norwegian woman who is a minor celebrity back home. Never one to sit on the sidelines,
Harry befriends one of the lead detectives, and one of the witnesses, as he is drawn deeper into the case.
Together, they discover that this is only the latest in a string of unsolved murders, and the pattern points
toward a psychopath working his way across the country. As they circle closer and closer to the killer,
Harry begins to fear that no one is safe, least of all those investigating the case.

The Redbreast (#3): The Redbreast is a chilling tale of murder and betrayal that ranges from the
battlefields of World War Two to the streets of modern-day Oslo. Follow Hole as he races to stop a
killer and disarm a ticking time-bomb from his nations shadowy past. Vogue magazine says that
nobody can delve into the dark, twisted mind of a murderer better than a Scandinavian thriller
writerand nobody does it better than Jo Nesb! James Patterson fans should also take note.

Nemesis (#4): A man walks into an Oslo bank, puts a gun to a cashier's head, and tells her to count to
twenty-five. When he doesn't get his money fast enough, he pulls the trigger. The young woman dies
and two million Norwegian kroner disappear without a trace.

After a drunken evening with former girlfriend Anna Bethsen, Police Detective Harry Hole wakes up at
home with a headache, no cell phone, and no memory of the past twelve hours. The same day, Anna is
found shot dead in her bedroom, making Hole a prime suspect in the investigation led by his hated
adversary, Tom Waaler. Meanwhile, the bank robberies continue with unparalleled savagery, sending
rogue detective Hole from the streets of Oslo to steaming Brazil in a race to close two cases and clear
his name. But Waaler isn't finished with his longtime nemesis quite yet.

The Devil's Star (#5): In the heat of a sweltering Oslo summer, a young woman is found murdered in
her flatwith one of her fingers cut off and a tiny red star-shaped diamond placed under her eyelid. An
off-the-rails alcoholic barely holding on to his job, Detective Harry Hole is assigned the case with Tom
Waaler, a hated colleague whom Harry believes is responsible for the murder of his partner. When
another woman is reported missing five days later, and her severed finger turns up adorned with a red
star-shaped diamond ring, Harry fears a serial killer is at work. But Hole's determination to capture a
fiend and to expose Waaler's crimes is leading him into shadowy places where both investigations
merge in unexpected ways, forcing him to make difficult decisions about a future he may not live to see.

The Redeemer (#6): Christmas shoppers stop to hear a Salvation Army concert on a crowded Oslo
street. A gunshot cuts through the music and the bitter cold: one of the singers falls dead, shot in the
head at point-blank range. Harry Holethe Oslo Police Departments best investigator and worst civil
servanthas little to work with: no suspect, no weapon, and no motive. But Harrys troubles will
multiply. As the search closes in, the killer becomes increasingly desperate, and Harrys chase takes
him to the most forbidden corners of the former Yugoslavia.

Yet its when he returns to Oslo that he encounters true darkness: among the homeless junkies and
Salvationists, eagerly awaiting a savior to deliver them from miserywhether he brings new life or
immediate death.

With its shrewdly vertiginous narrative, acid-etched characters, and white-hot pace, The Redeemer is
resounding proof of Jo Nesbs standing as one of the best crime writers of our time.

The Snowman (#7): Oslo in November. The first snow of the season has fallen. A boy named Jonas
wakes in the night to find his mother gone. Out his window, in the cold moonlight, he sees the
snowman that inexplicably appeared in the yard earlier in the day. Around its neck is his mothers pink

Hole suspects a link between a menacing letter hes received and the disappearance of Jonass
motherand of perhaps a dozen other women, all of whom went missing on the day of a first snowfall.
As his investigation deepens, something else emerges: he is becoming a pawn in an increasingly
terrifying game whose rules are devisedand constantly revisedby the killer.

Fiercely suspenseful, its characters brilliantly realized, its atmosphere permeated with evil, The
Snowman is the electrifying work of one of the best crime writers of our time.

The Leopard (#8): 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 doesnt want to be found. Traumatized by his last case, Inspector Harry Hole has
lost himself in the squalor of Hong Kongs opium dens. Yet when he is compelled, at last, to return to
Norwayhis father is dyingHarrys 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 testin both his professional and
personal livesas never before.

Phantom (#9): When Harry left Oslo again for Hong Kongfleeing the traumas of life as a cophe
thought he was there for good. But then the unthinkable happened. The son of the woman he loved, lost,
and still loves is arrested for murder: Oleg, the boy Harry helped raise but couldn't help deserting when
he fled. Harry has come back to prove that Oleg is not a killer. Barred from rejoining the police force,
he sets out on a solitary, increasingly dangerous investigation that takes him deep into the world of the
most virulent drug to ever hit the streets of Oslo (and the careers of some of the city's highest officials),
and into the maze of his own past, where he will find the wrenching truth that finally matters to Oleg,
and to himself.
