Reviews

  • "[Knife] may be Nesbo’s best storytelling yet. It’s not just clever; it’s diabolical, and let’s be glad it is, because the corkscrewing plot provides a measure of relief from the pain on view in this uncompromisingly intense and brilliant novel"

    Booklist
  • "Knife shows Nesbo back on form… This is a police procedural that breaks the bounds of the format with abandon… Nesbo manhandles the reader into contented…submission"

    Financial Times
  • "Knife sees the return of Harry’s old nemesis Svein Finne… The plot never goes the way you think it will, as Nesbo delights in playing tricks on the reader"

    Mail on Sunday
  • "This is Scandi noir as dark as obsidian with an emotional wreck of a protagonist"

    i
  • "You can imagine the worst (and you will probably be right), but the brilliant Jo Nesbo will surprise you anyway. Knife is the most unpredictable novel in the [Harry Hole] series"
