"One of the stars of contemporary crime fiction" (Martin Josephs The Times)
"Every now and then, a truly exceptional crime novel come along... This superb novel...deserves comparison with the first volume of Stieg Larsson's Millennium trilogy" (Joan Smith The Sunday Times)
"Jo Nesbo is my new favourite thriller writer and Harry Hole my new hero" (Michael Connelly)
"Everything zips along, with some excellent red herrings in a tight plot... Nesbo keeps you turning the pages and if your idea of the perfect crime novel is to see Inspector Rebus investigating killings from The Silence of the Lambs, you'll love this" (The Times)
#1 NATIONAL BESTSELLER (Norway)
"Jo Nesbo is a master of his craft.... World-class crime writing. Phantom is a crime novel that pleases on every level."
"Harry Hole, better than ever."
"Possibly the best in the series."
--"Dagens Naeringsliv" (Norway)
--"Vart Land" (Norway)
"With a steady hand, Jo Nesbo deftly ties together the different narratives, steering the novel towards its goal with great precision.... The fact that Harry Hole is a character in constant development makes the book even more interesting."
"I'm happy to announce that all expectations are met.... What's most salient is Jo Nesbo's intense, eloquent yet terse prose. The same goes for his talent as a storyteller, as well as his eye for narrative construction."
