Publisher Description

NEW YORK TIMES BEST SELLER • This killer will get inside your head. • Brilliant rogue police investigator Harry Hole is back, this time as an outsider assembling his own team to help find a serial killer who is murdering young women in Oslo in the next novel in the internationally best-selling series.

"One of today's most interesting thriller writers." —Lee Child, author of the #1 best-selling Jack Reacher series


THE HUNT IS ON AND THE POLICE ARE RUNNING OUT OF TIME. Two young women are missing, their only connection a party they both attended, hosted by a notorious real-estate magnate. When one of the women is found murdered, the police discover an unusual signature left by the killer, giving them reason to suspect he will strike again.

THEY'RE FACING A KILLER UNLIKE ANY OTHER. And exposing him calls for a detective like no other. But the legendary Harry Hole is gone—fired from the force, drinking himself to oblivion in Los Angeles. It seems that nothing can entice him back to Oslo. Until the woman who saved Harry's life is put in grave danger, and he has no choice but to return to the city that haunts him and track down the murderer.

CATCHING HIM WILL PUSH HARRY TO THE LIMIT. He'll need to bring together a misfit team of former operatives to accomplish what he can't do alone: stop an unstoppable killer. But as the evidence mounts, it becomes clear that there is more to this case than meets the eye...

“Killing Moon by Jo Nesbø Challenging, dark, mysterious, sad, and tense. Medium-paced Plot- or character-driven? A mix Strong character development? Yes Loveable characters? Yes Diverse cast of characters? Yes Flaws of characters a main focus? Yes 4.75 Stars This was NOT an easy book to read. There are/were a lot of sickning things that went on in this story (and most of the Harry Hole series). When when we meet Harry in this novel...he's in LA (Los Angeles). I was a little thrown by that. It didn't take long to go back to Norway.  There really is a mood for all these  books. It is a stark area, and the people that live there. I also wish I could pronounce Norwegian names, but I did the best I could.  Poor Harry, he's such a sad person, though a GREAT police detective, though now he is a civilian...though he's not actually on the outside, because he's got a LOT of people on the job, that respect him (though they SEE him, as he really is). I'm also glad that he didn't kill himself...like Leaving Las Vegas (or in this case, L.A.). The group that he gathered around himself were some of the best parts of this story.  The antagonist(s) were really well written and the way it was woven in and out of the narrative was genius. Depravity and odd science. Ugh, was pretty heavy though. I couldn't read these a LOT, or I'm too sensitive...and it would put me in a bad mood (to say the least). I really do love Harry Hole, and wish him the best.”
“What was I thinking starting another series? Especially starting at the 13th book in the series. It wasn't a good idea, but not for the reasons you might think. The problem is that Killing Moon is a good book. It's good enough that I want to go back and read books 1-12, but unfortunately, I don't have the time to do so anytime soon. I'm not sure if all the previous books are like this, but wow, there is a lot of drama surrounding Harry Hole. From what I gather, he's been through so much and it's a wonder how he keeps going. I can't help but wonder how he manages to survive all the dangerous situations he finds himself in. Also, how has his liver not given out yet? It's amazing how he continues to function despite all the abuse his body has endured. This book is truly a testament to his resilience. Furthermore, I must say that this book delves deep into some dark themes. It doesn't shy away from addressing heavy topics such as drug addiction and the devastating consequences it can have, as well as the horrors of sexual abuse. The author doesn't hold back in depicting the gritty reality of physical assault and the trauma it inflicts on its victims. And let's not forget the subject of rape, which is handled with sensitivity and honesty. If any of these topics are triggering for you, it might be best to skip this particular installment. So, while I may have regretted starting the series at book 13, I can't deny that Killing Moon is a captivating read. It's a book that pulls no punches, offering a chilling and thought-provoking exploration of the darkest corners of human nature. Whether you're a long-time fan of Harry Hole or just discovering this series, this book is sure to leave a lasting impact.”
