Product Description

Product Description

Hongkong: Im Dunst der Garküchen und Drogenhöhlen dämmert einsam ein Mann vor sich hin. Kommissar Harry Hole ist am Ende, er hat alle Brücken hinter sich abgebrochen, die chinesische Mafia ist ihm auf den Fersen. Gleichzeitig erschüttert Oslo eine Serie grotesk-grausamer Morde. Die junge Kommissarin Kaja schafft es schließlich, Harry zurückzuholen. Schon bald wird er immer tiefer in den Fall hineingezogen. Der Täter erweist sich als äußerst unberechenbar und intelligent. Er arbeitet mit einem perfiden Mordwerkzeug, das lautlos und quälend langsam tötet. Die Spuren führen Harry von einer einsamen Hütte im norwegischen Hochgebirge bis nach Ruanda. Als er dem Killer gegenübersteht, muss er eine übermenschliche Entscheidung treffen. Entdecken Sie auch das Hörbuch zu diesem Titel!

His first crime novel featuring Harry Hole was published in Norway in 1997 and was an instant hit, winning the Glass Key Award for best Nordic crime novel (an accolade shared with Peter Hoeg, Henning Mankell and Stieg Larsson).

3.0 out of 5 stars Beware: This is in GERMAN. Not in English 21 April 2010
Don't be duped like I was. I assumed because the title was seemingly in English, Leopard, that the book was translated into English.

It is NOT. This is the German version.

It is NOT translated yet into English.

Don't order this if you don't read German.

5.0 out of 5 stars Challenges 1 May 2011
By Ted Feit - Published on
The latest Harry Hole novel presents the reader with a formidable challenge: On the one hand, the temptation is to try to read this tautly written, tightly plotted murder mystery in a single sitting. On the other hand, its 611 pages is undoubtedly a very large hurdle. Whatever the method, it's well worth the effort to read it no matter how long it takes.

After the travails he suffered at the conclusion of "The Snowman," Harry was so down that he resigned from the police force and traveled to the Far East, where he loses himself in alcohol, opium and gambling. There, a female detective from Norway finds him, pays off his gambling debts, tells him his father is in the hospital dying and he, as the only officer with experience solving serial murders, is wanted back in Oslo to help in what appears to be another multiple homicide case. At first he is reluctant, but finally accedes to the request to return because of his dad.

Still refusing to rejoin the crime squad, Harry finally gives in when a third victim, a member of parliament, is killed. There are no clues and no common links between the victims until Harry discovers all three spent a night in an isolated mountain cabin together, and it becomes apparent that the "guests" are being picked off one by one.

From that point, the case slowly unfolds somewhat murkily to keep the reader in the dark as to the ultimate denouement. Sometimes, Harry's insights are prophetic, others off base. But he always has his eye on the main purpose: to catch the bad guy. At the same time, he is fighting his personal demons, his separation from the great love of his life, his relationship with his dying father, the politics of the competition between elements of the department as to responsibility for murder investigations, and his disillusionment with his role as a cop. More than enough, one must say, for one man.

Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Harry rocks 17 Mar 2012
By Timoci - Published on
I'm not much of a book reader. One or two books a year is about it. I've now read all the English versions of the Harry Hole series via kindle on the Ipad and about to download the Phantom released yesterday.i haven't decided whether the leopard or the snowman is my favorite but strongly recommend anyone interested in the series starts with the first chronological English translation the Redbreast and works their way thru the series. Addictive.
5.0 out of 5 stars all jo nesbo books / harry hole 9 Jun 2013

Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have loved, loved, loved every harry hole book. They have all been audio cd's and I can't even imagine these books in the written word format. The reason being is THE NARRATOR , he is harry hole and he brings him to life in such a way that I cannot even imagine that harry is a fictional character. His deep raspy voice, the thoughtful hum's......I am in love with him..... And not to forget the books, I have loved every one. This genre is is my favorite and Jo Nesbo does it so well. The story, the plot, the twist and turns, the keeping me on the edge of my seat throughout the entire book, the intellect, the everything !!! I have happily discovered that the Scandanavian crime, mystery, thriller writers are superior. For anyone that enjoys dark, disturbing, brutal, murdering, thought provoking books, Jo Nesbo is your perfect introduction. And, if possible, listen to one book on audio,cd etc......Once you hear the narration of harry,( so sorry I don't have his name, the man I'm in love with) it will be forever be ingrained in your mind and will breathe new life into the character that is Harry Hole....
