"An elegant and complex thriller...ingenious...harrowingly beautiful." -- New York Times Book Review

The third novel in the brilliant and epic Harry Hole series from the author of The Snowman--now available in a limited Olive Edition.

Detective Harry Hole embarrassed the force, and for his blunders he's been reassigned to mundane surveillance tasks. But while monitoring neo-Nazi activities in Oslo, Hole is inadvertently drawn into a mystery with deep roots in Norway's dark past, when members of the government willingly collaborated with Nazi Germany. More than sixty years later, this black mark won't wash away--and disgraced old soldiers who once survived a brutal Russian winter are being murdered, one by one.

Now, with only a stained and guilty conscience to guide him, an angry and erratic policeman must make his way safely past the traps and mirrors of a twisted criminal mind. For a conspiracy is taking rapid and hideous shape around Hole...and Norway's darkest hour may be still to come.
