The Thirst (Norwegian: Tørst, 2017) is a crime novel by Norwegian writer Jo Nesbø,[1] the eleventh in the Harry Hole series.[2][3]


The novel features a killer who returns from Harry Hole's past and whom he failed to apprehend previously, but with a frightening new method of killing his victims by biting the victim's body with manufactured iron teeth and, apparently, drinking their blood, similar to the classic idea of a vampire.
