Publisher's Summary

A young woman is murdered in her Oslo flat. One finger has been severed from her left hand, and behind her eyelid is secreted a tiny red diamond in the shape of a five-pointed star - a pentagram, the devil's star.
Detective Harry Hole is assigned to the case with his long-time adversary Tom Waaler and initially wants no part in it. But Harry is already on notice to quit the force and is left with little alternative but to drag himself out of his alcoholic stupor and get to work.
A wave of similar murders is on the horizon. An emerging pattern suggests that Oslo has a serial killer on its hands, and the five-pointed devil's star is key to solving the riddle.

Absorbing, gripping thriller.

This is the conclusion to Nesbo's trilogy, following on from The Redbreast and Nemesis. Detective Harry Hole is once again investigating a series of complex murders. On this case he is teamed up with a colleague that Harry believes is a corrupt killer. In the earlier books in the trilogy Harry has failed to prove his fellow detectives guilt.
This book has complex characters, wonderfully placed in bizarre and life threatening situations. Nesbo has the gift of making the reader feel uneasy in every chapter. The authors words are brought to life by narrater Sean Barrett, who never fails to add something special.
The book builds to a crescendo, I was unable to stop listening and felt disappointed when it had to end.
One of Jo Nesbo's best.

Hard to Take Earphones off!

A beautifully crafted story which all pulls together into a powerful conclusion. The narrator is highly skilled and provies clear cut voices to the characters which makes for a powerful and precise listening experience. The tale is modern and does not avoid honest language when the characters demand it, but ths is not over-offensive and adds to the pace of events. if you enjoy modern detective crime, it is a must-have. I am devastated to have got to the end of my listen to this book and will sulk unreservedly.
