The Thirst: A Harry Hole Novel (Harry Hole Series)
#1 International Best Seller 

In this electrifying new thriller from the author of Police and The Snowman, Inspector Harry Hole hunts down a serial murderer who targets his victims . . . on Tinder.
 
The murder victim, a self-declared Tinder addict. The one solid clue—fragments of rust and paint in her wounds—leaves the investigating team baffled.
        Two days later, there’s a second murder: a woman of the same age, a Tinder user, an eerily similar scene. 
        The chief of police knows there’s only one man for this case. But Harry Hole is no longer with the force. He promised the woman he loves, and he promised himself, that he’d never go back: not after his last case, which put the people closest to him in grave danger.
        But there’s something about these murders that catches his attention, something in the details that the investigators have missed. For Harry, it’s like hearing “the voice of a man he was trying not to remember.” Now, despite his promises, despite everything he risks, Harry throws himself back into the hunt for a figure who haunts him, the monster who got away.

STARRED REVIEW 
"Exceptional . . . Nesbo depicts a heartbreakingly conflicted Harry, who both wants to forget the horrors he’s trying to prevent and knows he has to remember them in all their grim detail."

The Dying Detective: A Mystery
LARS MARTIN JOHANSSON is a living legend. Cunning and perceptive, always one step ahead, he was known in the National Criminal Police as “the man who could see around corners.” But now Johansson is retired, living in the country, his police days behind him. 

Or so he thinks. 

After suffering a stroke, Johansson finds himself in the hospital. Tests show heart problems as well. And the only thing that can save him from despair is his doctor’s mention of an unsolved murder case from years before. The victim: an innocent nine-year-old girl. 

Johansson is determined to solve the case, no matter his condition. With the help of his assistant, Matilda, an amateur detective, and Max, an orphan with a personal stake in the case, he launches an informal investigation from his hospital bed. Racing against time, he uncovers a web of connections that links sex tourism to a dead opera singer and a self-made millionaire. And as Johansson draws closer to solving the crime, he finds that he will have to confront not just a mystery but his own mortality as well.

The Berlin Painter and His World: Athenian Vase-Painting in the Early Fifth Century B.C.
The Berlin Painter was the name given by British classicist and art historian Sir John Beazley to an otherwise anonymous Athenian red-figure vase-painter. The artist’s long career extended from about 505 B.C. well into the 460s, and his elegant renderings of daily life and mythological stories offer invaluable insight into the social, political, religious, and artistic workings of early 5th-century Athens.
 
Since the first published identification of the artist in 1911, the Berlin Painter’s oeuvre has grown to some 330 works, both complete pots and fragments, making him one of the best-known artists of his kind. This lavishly illustrated publication features nine essays by leading scholars who explore the artist’s work, milieu, influence, and legacy, as well as the role of connoisseurship in art-historical scholarship. With an updated catalogue raisonné that includes many newly attributed works, it is the definitive book on this seminal artist.

Eddie Mac Eddie Mac: Life and times at Chelsea under Eddie McCreadie

Chelsea's steady, multi-trophy-winning ascent to football’s summit has been well documented. In the modern Blues era, relegation is something that happens to other clubs, while a defeat to bitter London rivals Tottenham Hotspur is as rare an occurrence as a total eclipse of the sun. But life wasn’t always quite so carefree at Stamford Bridge.

April 1975, Spurs beat Chelsea 2-0 at White Hart Lane -- all but preserving their own top-flight status, while effectively condemning the Blues to Division Two.

Managing Chelsea for the first time that day was 35-year old Eddie McCreadie who’d already achieved cult hero status at the Bridge as an integral part of the swashbuckling kings of the King’s Road Blues side that lit up the game in the mid-late ‘60s and early ‘70s.

Set against a gloomy backdrop of economic recession, trouble on the terraces, and a football club on the verge of bankruptcy, Eddie Mac, Eddie Mac forensically details how McCreadie placed his faith in young players and achieved promotion to Division One in 1977.

Cheered on by the burgeoning hordes that went by the name of Eddie McCreadie’s Blue and White Army, Chelsea were back and seemingly set for great things -- but suddenly Eddie left. Why? The supporters were both perplexed and saddened – the media didn't really have a clue. There were rumours about a row over a company car, but no-one ever got to know the real reason -- until now.

In his own inspiring words, McCreadie details his time as Blues boss and explains why he left. Fascinating interviews with players of the day who clearly revered him paint a picture of a maverick manager ahead of his time, while comedian Omid Djalili sets the scene from a supporters’ perspective with an insightful foreword.

Eddie Mac, Eddie Mac is the greatest Chelsea story never told -- the missing piece of the complex jigsaw puzzle that depicts Blues history.
