Detective Harry Hole finds himself up against a terrifying serial killer in this thriller by internationally bestselling Jo Nesbo

Dive into the twist-filled world of detective Harry Hole

‘Many authors know how to make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up. Jo Nesbo's one of the few who keeps them there’ Linwood Barclay


The mark of the devil

A young woman is murdered in her flat and a tiny red diamond in the shape of a five-pointed star is found behind her eyelid.

The sign of a killer
Detective Harry Hole is assigned to the case, alongside his long-time adversary Tom Waaler, and initially wants no part in it. But Harry is already on his final warning and has little alternative but to drag himself out of his alcoholic stupor when it becomes apparent that Oslo has a serial killer on its hands.

Is this an evil that only Harry Hole can stop?
