Indeed, he only solves the main plot because the criminal wants him to, as opposed to all those amateur detectives who solve cases that have baffled the professionals for years – yes, I AM looking at you Mikael Blomqvist.

Yes, there are two books before this one in the Harry Hole series and they have since been translated as well, redbreasst The Redbreast was the first to be translated. There might be spoilers in the comments because this is one of those books you’ll want to talk about with friends.

Along the way, Harry discovers that someone in Oslo has recently come into possession of a very rare and extremely expensive sniper’s rifle. The ensuing investigation leads him to suspect that the crimes have their roots in the eedbreast of the Eastern Front during World War Two, but as the bodies mount up it soon becomes clear that the killer is hell-bent on serving his own justice.


The Redbreast : Harry Hole 3

Harry rushes to prevent the assassination, managing to stop the attempt at almost the last second in a hotel room. Well, because it rocks. Now for rdbreast good stuff: This book is the bomb. It’s in what he calls our ‘accursed nature’.

Our Harry with the weight of life on his shoulders.

Il pettirosso – Italia. He is flawed, depressive, introspective, vulnerable in his personal life, a loner among his colleagues.

There was a lot of concentration required as the book bounced around in time and place with many, many characters who mostly have Norwegian names! I paused before the final pages, wondering how Nesbo would finish it. But if that sort of shizzle turns your underdrawers into a splash pad, well I suggest you read this motherfucker.

Harry Hole is a damn fun character to run around after. After a prologue in which Harry acts decisively to prevent an apparent threat to the visiting president of the United States, only to find he has shot a Norwegian secret service agent, the novel shifts back to The present day events span a timeline from November through the spring of If historians were to stand in judgment on human folly, our work would seem to posterity like fossils — the remnants of the orthodoxy of their time.

Next, someone close to Harry is murdered. Jo Nesbo ups his game. The dynamic he gets going with Halvorsen was heartwarming.
