Police, the tenth installment in the Harry Hole series, will be published in the US on October 15th and the novel already got a fantastic, starred review in Kirkus:
“Having upped the ante with the previous novel in the Harry Hole series, the author goes for broke here. Arguably the most densely packed and ambitiously plotted novel in a series that has been getting darker with each volume … There’s a religious dimension to the plot twists of death and rebirth, of man playing god, both the redeemer and the avenger. … a surprise ending promises a fresh start for a series that had appeared to end with its previous novel.”
