head, and tells her to count to twenty-five. When he doesn't
get his money fast enough, he pulls the trigger. The young
woman dies--and two million Norwegian kroner disappear
without a trace. After a drunken evening with former
girlfriend Anna Bethsen, Police Detective Harry Hole wakes
up at home with a headache, no cell phone, and no memory of
the past twelve hours. The same day, Anna is found shot dead
in her bedroom, making Hole a prime suspect in the
investigation led by his hated adversary, Tom Waaler.
Meanwhile, the bank robberies continue with unparalleled
savagery, sending rogue detective Hole from the streets of
Oslo to steaming Brazil in a race to close two cases and
clear his name. But Waaler isn't finished with his longtime
nemesis quite yet.
