Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Amazon Best Books of the Month, December 2011: At the end of his previous thriller, The Snowman, Jo Nesbo's Inspector Harry Hole was a ravaged mess. At the start of The Leopard, we find Hole hiding away from the world, smoking opium in the squalor of Hong Kong's back alleys. A pretty young police officer drags him reluctantly back to Norway to pursue another serial killer, this one more twisted and vicious than the Snowman. Despite some far-fetched scenes, Hole is a damaged, soulful, and believable character. And Nesbo is proving to be a major talent, an eloquent writer who,, with the end of Steig Larsson's trilogy and the retirement of Henning Mankell's brooding detective Kurt Wallander, seems poised to become heir to the title "King of the Nordic thriller." --Neal Thompson
--This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Review

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
 
 “Nesbø 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. . . . Nesbø 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 Nesbø’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

Page turner, for sure!
Evalyn Albright
Mikael Bellman, the head of Kripos, is a great nemesis for Harry and I am sure we will see him trying to get the best of Harry in the future.

I will read everything Jo Nesbo has written and will write.

I have become a huge Harry Hole fan. I cannot read these books fast enough. I had hoped Kaja would make him forget the beautiful Rakel. Mikael Bellman, the head of Kripos, is a great nemesis for Harry and I am sure we will see him trying to get the best of Harry in the future. Or at least I hope so. Prince Charming was a shock... I kept looking to see how much more I had to read in the book as I know when I think all the loose ends are tied up... Jo Nesbo has a wonderful way of unraveling my ball of twine,

Jo Nesbo is a master writer, and The Leopard is a superb example of his tight, edge-of-seat prose. I will read everything Jo Nesbo has written and will write.

As usual, lots of plot twists and turns, Harry on and off the wagon, and an internal police nemeses. All makes for a great read.
