#1 International Best Seller
In this electrifying new thriller from the author of Police and The Snowman, Inspector Harry Hole hunts down a serial murderer who targets his victims . . . on Tinder.
The murder victim, a self-declared Tinder addict. The one solid clue—fragments of rust and paint in her wounds—leaves the investigating team baffled.
Two days later, there’s a second murder: a woman of the same age, a Tinder user, an eerily similar scene.
The chief of police knows there’s only one man for this case. But Harry Hole is no longer with the force. He promised the woman he loves, and he promised himself, that he’d never go back: not after his last case, which put the people closest to him in grave danger.
But there’s something about these murders that catches his attention, something in the details that the investigators have missed. For Harry, it’s like hearing “the voice of a man he was trying not to remember.” Now, despite his promises, despite everything he risks, Harry throws himself back into the hunt for a figure who haunts him, the monster who got away.
"Exceptional . . . Nesbo depicts a heartbreakingly conflicted Harry, who both wants to forget the horrors he’s trying to prevent and knows he has to remember them in all their grim detail."
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Harry Hole fans rejoice! The 11th outing in Jo Nesbø’s popular series contains all the juiciest elements of a Scandinavian crime drama: flawed detectives, complicated politics, plenty of sex, and, of course, horrifically bizarre murders. Told in Nesbø’s trademark punchy, noir style, The Thirst continues his tradition of making Oslo as much of a character as the victims, the villain, or even Hole himself. You don’t need to have read the first 10 books to dive into this one, but you might want to check out Police if you’re curious about the killer’s full backstory.
