5 Nesbo, Jo The Leopard: A Harry Hole Novel
New York Knopf 2011 0307595870 / 9780307595874 First American Edition Hardcover Near Fine in Near Fine dust jacket 
Unmarked. ; Book Description; Mylar and paper (Demco) protective cover. Dust jacket is intact with no nicks or tears. Spine has no signs of creasing. Pages are clean and not marred by notes or folds. Covers are square and without wear. Two young women are found murdered in Oslo, both drowned in their own blood. Media coverage quickly reaches fever pitch: Could this be the work of a serial killer? The crime scenes offer no coherent clues, the police investigation is stalled, and the one man who might be able to help doesn't want to be found. Traumatized by his last case, Inspector Harry Hole has lost himself in the squalor of Hong Kong's opium dens. Yet when he is compelled, at last, to return to Norway--his father is dying--Harry's buried instincts begin to take over. After a female MP is discovered brutally murdered, nothing can keep him from the investigation. There is little to go on: a piece of rope, a scrap of wool, a bit of gravel, an unexpected connection between the victims. And Harry will soon come to understand that he is dealing with a psychopath for whom "insanity is a vital retreat," someone who will put him to the test--in both his professional and personal lives--as never before. Ruthlessly intelligent and suspenseful, The Leopard is Jo Nesbų's most electrifying novel yet--absolutely gripping from first to last. ; 6.6 x 1.5 x 9.6 inches; 517 pages

But nothing goes quite as planned: Leo's mom needs help around the house, there are girls on the baseball team, and Leo has to babysit his pesky little cousin, who won't let Leo alone for a second. Of course, Leo's mean sister Eleanor will be around all summer too. This is supposed to be vacation--is Leo going to have any fun at all? Christine McDonnell lives in Brookline, Massachusetts.
