The Leopard by Jo Nesbo

The Leopard begins with Norwegian detective Harry Hole immersing himself in Hong Kong's opium dens, trying to forget his last case. When two women are brutally murdered, and it looks like another serial killer, Harry's skills are in demand in Oslo again. The beautiful detective Kaja Solness is sent to retrieve him. Informing Harry that his father is dying seals the deal. As new victims fall prey to the serial killer and his grisly torture device, Harry must identify what links all the victims together. It's a case that sends him to the Congo in search of clues as time runs out to save the next victims. Jo Nesbo's novel has received mixed reviews with The Guardian saying, "The ticking clock, the tension expertly racheted ever upwards, the changing scenery, the constantly shifting goalposts and his effortless, triumphant outpacing of the reader's ability to guess what's going to happen will keep you gripped to the last page. Suspend disbelief, immerse yourself and enjoy the ride. Oh, and don't have nightmares."
