Reviews
"Readers are privy to the doings of a man calling himself Prim, who emerges as the creepiest villain this side of a Thomas Harris novel . . . Nesbø excels at manipulating this sort of ghoulish material. He can heighten suspense with a single word and wrong-foot the most attentive customer."
--Wall Street Journal

"Riveting."
--St. Louis Post-Dispatch

"Jo Nesbø is one of today's most interesting thriller writers, and Harry Hole is an all-time great character."
--Lee Child, author of the #1 New York Times best-selling Jack Reacher series

"Unassailably the reigning king of Nordic noir as well as a global crime-writing superstar . . . Nesbø is back on gruesome form."
--Financial Times

"A battered hero, a memorably creepy villain, a series of false endings worthy of Jeffery Deaver: What's not to love?"
--Kirkus (starred review)

"Killing Moon is not just an unbearably tense thriller but another of Nesbø's studies in love and loneliness. At his best, as he is here, there are few greater crime writers."
--The Times (London)

"Nesbø deploys all the key ingredients of a cracking good thriller . . . Effortless."
--Guardian

"Breathtaking . . . Harry Hole returns in cracking form . . . It takes all of Hole's ingenuity to uncover what must be the most unusual method of murder in contemporary crime fiction."
--The Sunday Times (Ireland)

"Killing Moon is a magnificent concoction. It is beyond fantastic and is one of the greatest crime novels I have ever read. And I have read thousands."
--Dayton Daily News

"Harry is back. Part rock star, part melancholic philosopher, he is the coolest, smartest, most complex, least orthodox crime fighter around . . . In plotting this book, Nesbø gives us a heap of misleading clues, mistaken arrests, red herrings and blind alleys. He is a master of misdirection."
--Bookreporter

"Nesbø never releases the heartstrings through an otherwise classic dark police procedural . . . Fans of the series will find this sleuth's grief and loss powerful and will appreciate how life forces Harry back into the work he does so well. Newcomers to Nesbø's well-established investigations won't struggle for context, though."
--New York Journal of Books
