By Jo Nesbø, Knopf $23.95
Jo Nesbø departs his Harry Hole series to introduce Jon Hansen, the “fixer” for the drug lord, known as “The Fisherman.” When Jon fails to “fix” a non-paying client, he runs for his life, as far away from Oslo above the Artic Circle. He gets off the bus at Kaslund and spends the night in the church where he’s found and befriended by the caretaker. She and her precocious son set him up in her husbands hunting cabin in the woods. There, going by the name, Ulf, he waits in fear for the Fisherman’s revenge. And it arrives sooner than expected.
