The Leopard, by Jo Nesbo

Riddled with anti-climactic moments, The Leopard lacks the full-out suspense of some of Nesbo's other Harry Hole novels, such as The Snowman. The ending crosses the surrealism of Lee Child's Reacher series with the contrived revelations of an Agatha Christie mystery. Nevertheless, the character of Harry Hole remains compelling, and the detective as much as the case is the driving force that makes this a page turner. Fans of Scandinavian noir mystery featuring strong character relationships will also enjoy the works of Camilla Lackberg, including The Ice Princess.
