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.

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, 2014. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "Fast-and-furious." -- The New York Times Book Review "The pace is relentless. . . . The plot . . . [is] complex without becoming overheated." -- San Antonio Express-News "Though there's plenty of twisty plot, it's Nesb's writing--textured, humane, evocative, moody, cinematic--that keeps this thing rolling forward like a toboggan on a steep slope." -- Minneapolis Star Tribune " The Redeemer rocks! Jo Nesb 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 "Full of shocking chance and nuance, unforeseen twists and ice-crystal clear views of Oslo in winter." -- The Wall Street Journal "A tour de force. . . . So tightly constructed and compelling that it's impossible to put the book down." -- The Globe and Mail (Canada) "A treat. . . . Even when you're positive that the mystery is entirely done and dusted, it invariably turns out that the pragmatic Detective Harry Hole has managed to stay three steps ahead, and there's more to uncover." -- Time Out "Nesb is no ordinary writer. . . . A complex story, impossible to second-guess, which proves that greed, lust and a desire for revenge lurk within the saintliest of folk." -- The Sunday Telegraph "Rarely does a mystery novel succeed on so many levels, as the intricate plotting explores psychological and theological dimensions that go deeper than standard notions of good and evil. . . . Those with an affinity for the darkest and most literary crime fiction will want to get here as soon as they can." -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review) "The search for redemption is on--redemption through violence. The deeply flawed Hole is his familiar self: difficult and disrespectful, brilliant and intuitive. . . . Told in powerful prose, [ The Redeemer ] never fails to grip." -- Publishers Weekly "No doubt about it: Nesb belongs on every crime-fiction fan's A-list." -- Booklist.
