The books follow Harry Hole, a police struggling with alcoholism and his own demons, who works for Crime Squad, later on with the National Criminal Investigation Service (Kripos).
Right now I’m reading Phantom, I don’t think this book is so good.
I like the following the most. The Bat, The Redbreast (Harry calls Ellen), The Snowman, it reminded me a little of Kuchisake Onna.
I have also read The Headhunters and The Son by Jo Nesbø. The Headhunters have been made into a movie, and a movie based on The Snowman starring Michael Fassbender is being worked on.
Overall I think Jo Nesbø’s Harry Hole series is okay, but he isn’t my favorite crime author. Read it if you got time.

Parts of The Leopard takes place in the Congo Republic where Mount Nyiragongo is located, one of the world’s most active volcanoes. I found the National Geographic documentary Volcano Under the City on YouTube.
