The publisher wrote: "Struck off the force and down and out in Los Angeles, Killing Moon will see Harry Hole drawn back to the city that haunts him to hunt down a killer unlike any other. As the story opens, Norwegian former police detective Harry Hole - severely depressed after the death of his wife Rakel - is in a Los Angeles bar, trying to drink himself numb. Did you read how everyone ‘praised’ her after she came forward and spoke about how Weinstein, that pig, had tried it on with her? Your personal data will not be shared with any other organisations and you have the right to unsubscribe at any time. A very few remain, but I don't find them to interesting, and don't make the story as gripping as previous one's did.

I walk the streets on my own, and I don’t find it entertaining or intriguing to read about girls getting drugged and murdered before having their scalps sliced open. The common denominator is a party both young women attended, hosted by rich and powerful businessman Markus Roed.Killing Moon is a highly enjoyable read that doesn’t ask you to think too much about it and I must say that the Scandinavian setting is exotic. I would hate to know that I dissuaded a reader from picking up a book just because I didn’t like it.

Exploring all the leads, Harry is able to make some headway, but realises that this is one serial killer with their own impetus for action. Hole is an alcoholic chain-smoker who routinely insults his peers and alienates his colleagues, framed as the ultimate outsider on the hunt for justice.The series began in 1997 with the Bat, and includes the Cockroaches (1998), the Redbreast (2000), Nemesis (2002), Devil's Star (2003), the Redeemer (2005), the Snowman (2007), the Leopard (2009), Phantom (2012), Police (2013), the Thirst (2017), and Knife (2019). There are crime novels in which the protagonist is as fascinating as the plot so that no matter how mundane the crime may be, we want to spend our time with those bleakly funny, insatiably curious problem-solvers. As the school bully, Richard is a somewhat unlikeable character, so I struggled to sympathize with him. In the unlikeliest team-up ever, corrupt cop Truls Berntsen, a favourite in Police, becomes Harry’s ally.

Suspicions reach a boiling point when another of Richard’s classmates named Jack disappears shortly after hanging out. Trouble magnet Harry Hole — last seen in Knife (2019) — is drowning his sorrows in an LA dive when, gallant to a fault, he comes to the rescue of Lucille, a fading star who owes some frightful Mexicans scads of money.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.
