This installment of the Harry Hole series is excellent! Once again Jo Nesbo creates a great blend of emotional dynamics and complex thriller. Tension continues to mount regarding the degree of corruption in the city police and council members in Oslo. Great read! ( )

Harry Hole doesn't need a curly, red wig to render a heart-felt and genuine version of "It's a Hard-Knock Life," although he'd wish himself dead if he were ever to sing it. At the start of the latest account of his difficult life, he's already visibly marked as a man of sorrow. Returned from exile as a debt collector in Hong Kong after throwing in the towel on his police career, Harry is back for the only people who mean anything to him, his former lover Rakel and her son, Oleg. Oleg is slam-dunk charged with the murder of a fellow junkie and Harry, sober three years and still a detective at heart must work outside the forces of law and order to free the boy he considers his son. The trail, as ever, leads to the highest offices of the government and the police force and to the lowest wastrels and waifs before reaching a shattering conclusion. It's a very good read but if, like me, senility is approaching fast, I suggest writing down the names as you go. Trust me. I liked this much more than the previous book, "The Leopard." I suspect it has to do with being able to connect more with Harry when he has more to connect with, like Rakel and Oleg. ( )

Ei ole juuri karismaattisempaa antisankaria kuin Harry Hole. Joka kerta tsemppaan Harrya että älä ratkea ryyppäämään ja aina se ratkeaa. Mutta nyt ei ratkennutkaan pahasti. Aikamoinen ylläri! Mutta voi Jo minkä teit, ei Machine Head ole mitään kunnon metallia (vaikka itse varmaan luulevatkin niin). Toivoisin jo ettei Olegin musiikkimakuun viitattaisi enää, kun näyttää tuo metalliskene olevan vähän hakusessa. Säästelen vielä tuota viimeistä, kun en halua Harrysta luopua... ( )

This ninth volume in Jo Nesbo's Harry Hole series finds our intrepid hero flying back to .norway from Hong Kong. A drug ring run by the mysterious Dubai has taken over Oslo with a popular, addictive manufactured drug called Violin. Former lover Rakel's son is somehow caught up and stands accused of the murder of another drug runner. Hole is resolved to find the true killer. That he is no longer a member of the police force poses both roadblocks and possibilities. He doesn't always have access to the information he needs, but some things are better handled outside the law. Who or what is Dubai? How far does the drug ring extend? Is the police department involved? Can he ever win Rakel's heart again? The plot races along to a truly amazing cliffhanging climax.

This Harry Hole is beaten up and weary in both spirit and body. Audiobook narrator Robin Sachs' raspy growl of a voice captures him perfectly. I have been taking this series out of order without much problem. However, I believe "Phantom" and its successor, "Police" must be read in tandem. The surprising denouement of Phantom will send you racing for the next volume. ( )

Jo Nesbo did it again. It's the 9th book of the Harry Hole series and it's as fresh, exciting and a page-turner as ever. He starts his investigation for a personal reason but what he finds at the end is no less than an ancient greek tragedy. Shocking.... ( )
