When Harry left Oslo again for Hong Kong--fleeing the traumas of life as a cop--he thought he was there for good. But then the unthinkable happened. The son of the woman he loved, lost, and still loves is arrested for murder: Oleg, the boy Harry helped raise but couldn't help deserting when he fled. Harry has come back to prove that Oleg is not a killer. Barred from rejoining the police force, he sets out on a solitary, increasingly dangerous investigation that takes him deep into the world of the most virulent drug to ever hit the streets of Oslo (and the careers of some of the city's highest officials), and into the maze of his own past, where he will find the wrenching truth that finally matters to Oleg, and to himself.

Pay no attention to the comment by 'marinka.' Here, as in his other books, Nesboe is an excellent novelist who writes excellent prose. His work is darker and deeper and more literary than that of most other crime writers.

Truly awful book - badly written (poor translation maybe partially to blame), Harry as superman gets tiring, ridiculous scenarios, characters popping in and out. An example of terrible writing trying to disguise itself as clever prose.

The caliber of writing in this "thriller" approaches that of a first-rate "novel"

Though Phantom is especially bleak, it is even more brilliantly crafted than Nesbo's previous stories
