7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Toronto Tommy on March 27 2007
Format: Mass Market Paperback
First off, please read the Redbreast first. This book continues the life of Harry Hole following the events in The Redbreast, although this book is not a sequel. Despite the problems of Harry Hole, he is likeable, and you root for him to succeed (in life). It's another perfect read for the beach or cottage and I couldn't put it down. I won't repeat the storyline that is noted above, other than a serial killer takes hold of Oslo. Pick it up, you won't put it down.

Format: Paperback
There are several questions raised in this novel, the third in the Harry Hole series. And they apparently can only be answered by Harry Hole, the Norwegian alcoholic detective, if he sobers up. Haunted by the death of his partner he is frustrated after pursuing proof of the identity of her murderer for two years and goes on a four-week binge resulting in his superior finally giving up on Harry and putting papers in for his dismissal. But a three-week reprieve before the final papers can be signed allows Harry to be part of the search for what appears to be a serial murderer.

In the meantime, his relationship with his lover, Rakel, is jeopardized when she, fed up with his drinking and his devotion to the job, asks him to leave. And then Harry continues to pursue the Inspector whom he believes responsible for the death of his key witness in his search for the reason behind his partner's death. And in this effort, he uncovers a broad conspiracy within the police department.

All these elements make for an extremely complicated novel, almost as complex as Harry himself. But the writing and characters are so well-done that the reader is carried along swiftly to a rousing denouement that only Harry can wrap up.

Jo Nesbo was nominated for an Edgar for best novel this year for "Nemesis." "The Devil's Star" should garner it for him next year, and it is highly recommended.

Format: Paperback
Book 3, in the Harry Hole series

This captivating Scandinavian crime fiction is an excellent police procedural with a great plot that deals with a Norwegian serial killer and a tormented alcoholic protagonist who is about to lose his job and along with it, his relationship and his sanity.

It opens with a serial killer on the loose in Oslo. The killer cuts off his victims' fingers and leaves a tiny five corner red diamond shaped star as his signature.

This very sophisticated plot with many interesting minor characters to keep track of, takes us into the dark corners of Oslo with Harry Hole as prime investigator. He once again proves that his escalating bad habits cannot take away his ability to be a great investigator with an outstanding record at solving crimes. There is good depth in the characterization and a lot of vignettes and back-stories to add colour to the mystery.

In a sub-plot Harry battles with his own demons and corruption in the Oslo police force. He has always made it his mission to flush out criminals even if they are corrupt individual amongst his own ranks. Although, the beginning may seem slow and overly detailed the interplay between the two threads and the clever number of twits and turns successfully kept me on my toes. I found myself dragged into a black hole of mystery, a vortex of intrigue that escalated as I fingered through the pages. Needless to say, I was captivated till the end.

This book is extremely exciting and entertaining, a brilliant crime fiction with well-developed characterization, superb plotting and endless suspense. ''The Devil's Star'' is the best I have read so far in this series.

I find it a bit demeaning to Nesbo that 'the next Stieg Larsson' is written on the cover of the book. Nesbo does not need to be anyone but Nesbo, nor compared to anyone. The book is fast paced, easy to read, and interesting. What else do you need on a cold winter day, or any day for that matter.

All the Nesbo books have interesting plots, and are well written. It is better to read them in sequence tho

With many writers the stories of one character tend to be the same over and over again....not so with Harry Hole. I know that there must be an end some time but I hope it's not too soon. The Devil's Star had all the twists and turns Jo Nesbo must be known for. I love his strong characters. Even characters introduced in small scenes seem to have more to do with the story than one would think. Harry Hole is such a dear, tormented character that you can't help but love.
