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.
"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 * "A cracking good thriller...that will keep you gripped to the last page" * Guardian * "Outstanding... Probably the best big crime novel you could lay your hands on this year" * BBC Radio 4 * "Nesbo's novels keep going when you think there can't be any more twists to follow. Scenes switch from the avalanche-threatened ravines and mountain cabins of back-country Norway, close to oil-rich Stavanger and metropolitan Oslo, to an active volcano in Africa" * Times Literary Supplement * "Original Norwegian noir...absorbing" -- Tom Huddleston * Time Out *

After reading The Leopard, I advised any women I know not to run at night.
But then again days aren't always completely safe either from men or animals. Harry got attacked in Australia in The Bat by a vicious little dog he mistook for a tasmanian devil, but fortunately was saved by his aboriginal detective host who was able to deliver a swift kick.
Be prepared for Nesbo.
