Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:

A fantastically gripping thriller from the best-selling author of The Snowman.

Christmas shoppers stop to hear a Salvation Army concert on a crowded Oslo street. A gunshot cuts through the music and the bitter cold: one of the singers falls dead, shot in the head at point-blank range. Harry Hole—the Oslo Police Department’s best investigator and worst civil servant—has little to work with: no suspect, no weapon, and no motive. But Harry’s troubles will multiply. As the search closes in, the killer becomes increasingly desperate, and Harry’s chase takes him to the most forbidden corners of the former Yugoslavia.

Yet it’s when he returns to Oslo that he encounters true darkness: among the homeless junkies and Salvationists, eagerly awaiting a savior to deliver them from misery—whether he brings new life or immediate death.

With its shrewdly vertiginous narrative, acid-etched characters, and white-hot pace, The Redeemer is resounding proof of Jo Nesbø’s standing as one of the best crime writers of our time.

Book Description: Knopf, 2013. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "The Redeemer"rocks! Jo Nesbo is my new favorite thriller writer and Harry Hole my new hero. This book had my pulse in the red zone from start to finish." -- Michael Connelly "The Redeemer is Nesbo's fourth novel and it proves to be as brilliant as his other three. It provides a grimly realistic portrait of the Norwegian capital -- druggies shooting up in public; refugees being exploited in private -- as well as an engrossing mystery, full of twists. . . . The Croatian assassin is a fascinating character -- a former war hero with a truly fatal gay charm -- who has the advantage of 'hyperelasticity, ' a face so mobile no one can remember it. Nesbo's work is full of such idiosyncratic detail and it is to be hoped that he won't let the world-weary Hole retire or get fired any time soon." --"Evening Standard" (UK)" " "The killer's boyhood in the war-torn Balkans gives added depth to a complex story, impossible to second-guess, which proves that greed, lust and a desire for revenge lurk within the saintliest of folk." --"Daily Telegraph" "Hole in one. . . . Jo Nesbo has done it again. This autumn's Harry Hole crime novel is conceived on a large scale and masterfully carried out. . . . One of Norwegian literature's most outstanding storytellers just happens to be named Jo Nesbo." --"Verdens Gang" (Norway) "Right on the mark. . . .Jo Nesbo draws his bow, takes aim and hits a bull's eye. He has the language, he has the suspense -- and he has Harry Hole. . . . a storyteller who doesn't give the reader a moment' s breathing room, it's full-bore 464 pages to the end. . . . In case you haven't already been saved by Jo Nesbo, it's high time you were." -- "Bergensavisen" (Norway) "A tour de force. Nesbo has a plot here that is so tightly constructed and compelling that it's impossible to put the book down. This is a serial-killer story, and one with a punch." -- Margaret Cannon, "The Globe and Mail " "Nesbo has been gra. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_new_0307595854
