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.




From the Hardcover edition.

Review:

The crime is simple—the motive is anything but.
 
Shots ring out at a Salvation Army Christmas concert in Oslo, leaving one of the singers dead in the street. The trail will lead Harry Hole, Oslo’s best investigator and worst civil servant, deep into the darkest corners of the city and, eventually, to Croatia. 

An assassin forged in the war-torn region has been brought to Oslo to settle an old debt. As the police circle in, the killer becomes increasingly desperate and the danger mounts for Harry and his colleagues.

Book Description: Vintage. 1 Paperback(s), 2014. soft. Book Condition: New. As Christmas shoppers stop to hear a concert on an Oslo street, a man in a Salvation Army uniform suddenly falls dead, shot by another man at close range, who then seemingly melts away. Harry Hole—the police department's best investigator and worst civil servant—has no suspect, weapon, or motive. But Hole's troubles have only just begun, in his sixth gripping mystery (following The Devil's Star), as the assassin discovers that he has shot the wrong man and becomes frantic in the search for his real target. Hole's pursuit leads him into the darkest corners of Croatia, where a killer was forged in the war with Serbia, but it's when he returns to Oslo that he encounters true darkness, where the homeless, the junkies, and the Salvationists all await a savior—whether he brings new life or immediate death. One of Europe's most critically acclaimed and successful crime writers, Jo Nesbø won the highly prestigious Glass Key Award for Best Nordic Crime Novel with his first novel featuring the brilliant but alcoholic detective Harry Hole, while The Redbreast, his first Harry Hole mystery in English, was voted as the best Norwegian crime novel of all time by Norwegian book club readers. "The Redeemer rocks! Jo Nesbø 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"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. Nesbø's work is full of such idiosyncratic detail."—Evening Standard (London) 500. Bookseller Inventory # 49498
