9 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Nicola Manning-Mansfield HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on Jan. 31 2009
Format: Paperback
This book is impossible to summarize. The story is incredibly intricate and several cases intertwine with each other. The back of my paperback copy gives a plot outline which really only deals with the second half of the book. Harry Hole is a Norwegian detective and he is called onto a case involving a bank robbery where a hostage is killed in cold blood. Later on he receives a call for a date from an old flame and wakes up the next morning remembering nothing only to find out she was murdered sometime that evening. These two cases take the forefront and many, many things twist and turn before the final outcome. I love a mystery that I cannot guess whodunit before the reveal. I had my guesses but they were wrong.

While the plot and the story is intense the characterization is wonderful. Harry is a flawed man, a recovering alcoholic with a great relationship in progress. He is not exactly everybody's favourite at the station as he has his own way of doing things and often disregards procedure.

Jo Nesbo has, I think, finally crossed the line between mystery and literature. While a great crime novel it is also a beautifully written and deeply profound story of characters. I really enjoyed this book and will be reading more from Nesbo. I just wish they would publish the series in the order it was written. So far they have published the English translations in this order #5, #3, #4 and #6 will published in English later this year. Recommended!

Excellent, complex , always engaging and Nesb's very flawed hero Harry Hole continues to battle demons both internal and external.

Format: Paperback
This book follows Harry Hole after the book "The Redbreast" - so I do recommend that you read that one first - since it sets this book up with a subplot and the characters.

If you're into Scandanavian thrillers - this one is a good one. I found that The Redbreast and the The Devil's Star (the third book in this series) were the stronger stories - although this book helped us get Harry where he needed to be.

Lots of twists and turns, who done it, and why - recommended as part of the series, not on its own.

I am so impressed with his descriptive writing and it is like watching a suspenseful movie. I have enjoyed all of his books that I downloaded from Amazon. Would recommend to readers read the trilogy in order as well as his others.

I simply adore Jo Nesbo's writing! His twists and turns in his plots are brilliant. His characters are so real. Harry Hole is an unlikely hero who continues to inspire admiration. His books can be read on their own but I much prefer to read them in order. It took a little time to figure out which order they were in and I've read a few twice to refresh my memory of his exploits. The research that has gone in to this book is quite extensive. I learned a great deal from this book.
