“Oslo detective Harry Hole is a great character to follow in this dark, twisted, and intriguing story of a serial killer. This page-turner is a Scnadinavian crime novel at its finest.”
-- Suzanne Droppert, Liberty Bay Books, Poulsbo, WA


Description

Oslo is sweltering in the summer heat when a young woman is murdered in her flat. One finger has been cut off and a tiny red diamond in the shape of a pentagram is found under her eyelid. Detective Harry Hole is assigned the case with Tom Waaler, a colleague he neither likes nor trusts. He believes Tom is behind a gang of arms smugglers -- and the murder of his partner. But Harry, an off-the-rails alcoholic, is barely holding on to his job and has to play nice.
