Nesbo is another excellent Scandinavian Crime Writer, and this novel does not disappoint. This face-paced tale takes us through the streets of Oslo, in search of a serial killer. Harry Holy, our flawed protagonist, navigates us through the many twists and turns. ~ Reviewed by Becky Doherty

Published: Templar - August 27th, 2013

A wonderful gem of a book to be loved by all ages. It is a feast for the eyes, gorgeously illustrated to resemble a journal of sketches and holding the imagined authors most loved poems. It follows our narrator on a walk through the countryside, and is accompanied by poems relevant to the scene. The poets sourced are a heady and rich mix, from William Blake to W.B. Yeats, and many more in between. As if it couldn’t get any better, the author royalties from this book are being donated to the charity “Farms for City Children”. ~ Reviewed by Becky Doherty
