Publisher's Summary

After the brutal homicide of a woman, the Oslo Police Force know exactly whom to call: brilliant and unorthodox police investigator Harry Hole. When he suspects a link with one of his cold cases, it's a race against time to catch the elusive killer.

There's a new killer on the streets.

A woman is found murdered after an Internet date. The marks left on her body show the police that they are dealing with a particularly vicious killer.

He's in your house.... He's in your room....

Under pressure from the media to find the murderer, the force know there's only one man for the job. But Harry Hole is reluctant to return to the place that almost took everything from him. Until he starts to suspect a connection between this killing and his one failed case.

He's out for blood....

When another victim is found, Harry realises he will need to put everything on the line if he's to finally catch the one who got away.

    Story
    "Another edge of the seat novel."

    Quite complex in its plot, but worthwhile. Lovely narration, as ever, by Sean Barrett.
    I managed to fall in to one of Nesbo's traps, and was convinced of the guilt of one character - I do like his way of writing, and his characters are fun.

    Story
    "He's back. Better than ever"
    If you could sum up The Thirst in three words, what would they be?

    Gripping page turner


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Thirst?

    Harry, always harry


    What does Sean Barrett bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Sean Barrett is the consummate narrator. He could make a telephone directory sound interesting


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes and no, yes because it was riveting, no because I knew I'd miss Harry


    Any additional comments?

    When's the next one due

    Harry is back! Great story, lots of teasing twists and turns and, as always, superbly read by the one and only Sean Barrett.

    "Wonderful Nesbo and Barrett."

    Nebo at his gripping best. The best Harry book for a long time. Dark and twisted. With the taste of more to come.

    Story
    "A bit too drawn out, but still a great listen."

    I feel the overall story could have been more concise. This would have made it wonderfully thrilling and not just mediocre thrilling. However,Jo Nesbo has done it again and I still recommend this novel.

    I had tears in my eyes in parts near the end,caused by knowing the history behind the characters.

    Sean Barrett as wonderful as ever.

    Story
    "Dark side of the thirst."
    What made the experience of listening to The Thirst the most enjoyable?

    There are many twists and turns, as you would expect from a Jo Nesbo novel. they don't always work. In this Novel they do. There is an abundance of psychological investigation which keeps the reader stimulated, whether true or not is neither here nor there. As usual there the obligatory references to music and literature. Haruki Murakami gets a mention which is pleasing as he is also one author I most admire. Pink Floyd are given special treatment. For this alone the novel geserves five stars.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Everything. I listened in two sittings. It helps when a novel is basically based upon the entire work of British Rock band Pink Floyd.


    What does Sean Barrett bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He is one of the best readers there is available. He is Harry!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    You are going to pay me for the tag line? Someone else can do their job.


    Any additional comments?

    Just listen. It will be the best Crime tnovel this year. Although the recent Philip kerr addition was very good.
