We’ve added a set of photos of the advance review copy, just received here at Crime Fiction Lover HQ. It’s a decent size at 531 pages, the first of which you can read below. The release is scheduled for 11 July.

Jo Nesbo will be visiting the UK to promote the publication, headlining at the Theakston Old Peculier Crime Writing Festival in July.

The author has written several standalone Nordic noir books as well, including the excellent Blood on Snow and Midnight Sun.
