Reviews

A Booklist Best Crime Novel of 2012"Maddeningly addictive." --Vanity Fair "Meaty, gripping, full of tantalizing twists." --Associated Press "A true page-turner, and a worthy sequel to The Snowman." --Newark Star-Ledger"The Leopard rewards you with a finale as unexpected and thought-provoking as any in recent mystery-fiction memory." --San Francisco Chronicle "A cracking good thriller. . . . Immerse yourself and enjoy the ride." --The Guardian (London) "The action in The Leopard sweeps from a volcano in Africa to the remotest snow-covered mountains of Norway, but many of the novel's best parts involve Harry's silent struggles. . . . There's always a twist, always a surprise, always a variation on a theme." --The Dallas Morning News "Nesbo also deepens the central mystery at the heart of Harry's pursuits: which is not so much the truth about himself, but rather, whether he can learn to live with that truth. He is a giant of the Scandinavian mystery." --The Boston Globe "Outstanding. . . . Nesbo moves the action easily from Hong Kong to Norway, with side trips to the Democratic Republic of Congo, without ever losing the plot's sense of urgency." --Publishers Weekly (starred) "This one stands up to the ante one more time. . . . Crime fiction's most tortured and compelling hero. Alas, no armor exists strong enough to keep Harry from his demons, or the rest of us from Harry." --Booklist (starred) "Comparisons with Stieg Larsson have been made, but Nesbo's plots move quickly, carry more punch, and really do keep you guessing to the final page." --Daily Mirror "The Leopard's unflagging narrative tension, breathtaking surprises and many confrontations with half-suspected treachery . . . are superb." --The Independent A "Booklist" Best Crime Novel of 2012 "Maddeningly addictive." --"Vanity Fair" Meaty, gripping, full of tantalizing twists.

Like all intelligent crime fiction, this book is not only about multiple murders by heinous means. It is also about legacies, most specifically about the good and evil, love and hate, passed from one generation to the next. This vivid, violent novel promises to speak on many levels to many readers." --"Library Journal""In "The Leopard, "Nesbo deploys all the key ingredients of a cracking good thriller with expertise and verve. The ticking clock, the tension expertly ratcheted ever upwards, the changing scenery, the constantly shifting goalposts, and his effortless, triumphant outpacing of the reader's ability to guess what's going to happen will keep you gripped to the last page." --"The Guardian "(U.K.)

Following the intensity of events in Nesbo's previous novel, The Snowman, Inspector Harry Hole has literally and figuratively run away from home. Harry hides in Hong Kong's underbelly, drowning his sorrows and painful memories. He only reluctantly returns home to Oslo after two women are violently killed and his father lay on his deathbed, both events demanding Harry's attention and singular expertise. Nesbo's exceptionally dark, detailed, and visual writing makes this a quintessential thriller. Enhanced by the cinema-worthy performance of narrator Robin Sachs, this audio rendering of The Leopard suggests continual images in the listener's imagination. VERDICT Those adoring the work of Norwegian writers Stieg Larsson and Henning Mankell will enjoy Nesbo's tales; fans of the detailed procedurals of Ian Rankin and Patricia Cornwell also will be enthralled. ["This vivid, violent novel promises to speak on many levels to many readers and will be snatched up by Scandinavian crime fiction fans," read the review of the New York Times best-selling Knopf hc, LJ 11/1/11.-Ed.]-Nicole A.
