** Phantom by Jo Nesbo


Our friend Harry Hole is back in the Phantom, back on his home turf of Oslo to help his ex-wife’s son, a drug addict accused of killing a fellow junkie. The mystery wraps together a family drama, the very gritty Oslo drug underworld, vast quantities of alcohol for Harry, immense quantities of ammunition for all involved, and plot twists inside the plot twists. I must admit a bit of mind-wandering in the last parts of the story where the most bullets are spent (and the most alcohol consumed) but the characters are complex and interesting.
