Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:

“An elegant and complex thriller….Harrowingly beautiful.”
New York Times Book Review

“A hugely impressive achievement—ambitious in scope, and skilled in execution.”
Los Angeles Times

The Redbreast certainly ranks with the best of current American crime fiction.”
Washington Post

No disrespect meant to Henning Mankell and Stieg Larsson, but Jo Nesbø, the New York Times bestselling author of The Snowman, is the most exciting Scandinavian thriller writer in the crime fiction business. The Redbreast is a fabulous introduction to Nesbø’s tough-as-nails series protagonist, Oslo police detective Harry Hole. A brilliant and epic novel, breathtaking in its scope and design—winner of The Glass Key for best Nordic crime novel and selected as the best Norwegian crime novel ever written by members of Norway’s book clubs—The Redbreast is a chilling tale of murder and betrayal that ranges from the battlefields of World War Two to the streets of modern-day Oslo. Follow Hole as he races to stop a killer and disarm a ticking time-bomb from his nation’s shadowy past. Vogue magazine says that “nobody can delve into the dark, twisted mind of a murderer better than a Scandinavian thriller writer”…and nobody does it better than Jo Nesbø! James Patterson fans should also take note.


Review:

Detective Harry Hole embarrassed the force, and for his sins he’s been reassigned to mundane surveillance tasks. Butwhile monitoring neo-Nazi activities in Oslo, Hole is inadvertently drawn into a mystery with deep roots in Norway’sdark past, when members of the government willinglycollaborated with Nazi Germany. More than sixty years later,this black mark won’t wash away—and disgraced oldsoldiers who once survived a brutal Russian winter arebeing murdered, one by one. Now, with only a stained and guilty conscience to guide him, an angry, alcoholic, error-prone policeman must make his way safely past the trapsand mirrors of a twisted criminal mind. For a conspiracy is taking rapid and hideous shape around Hole . . . and Norway’s darkest hour may be still to come.

Book Description: Book Condition: New. Publisher/Verlag: HarperCollins US | A Harry Hole Novel. Winner of the 'Norwegischer Buchhandelspreis 2000' | 1944: Daniel, a soldier, legendary among the Norwegians fighting the advance of Bolshevism on the Russian front, is killed. Two years later, a wounded soldier wakes up in a Vienna hospital. He becomes involved with a young nurse, the consequences of which will ripple forward to the turn of the next century. 1999: Harry Hole, alone after having caused an embarrassment in the line of duty, has been promoted to inspector and is lumbered with surveillance duties. He is assigned the task of monitoring neo-Nazi activities; fairly mundane until a report of a rare and unusual gun being fired sparks his interest. Ellen Gjelten, his partner, makes a startling discovery. Then a former soldier is found with his throat cut. In a quest that takes him to South Africa and Vienna, Harry finds himself always one step behind the killer. Redbreast is one of the most ambitious and broad-scoped crime novels ever written in Scandinavia. In it Jo Nesbo tells a heartbreaking story of war, love and betrayal while luring readers to a nail-biting conclusion that will keep them guessing to the very end. | Format: Paperback | Language/Sprache: english | 275 gr | 563 pp. Bookseller Inventory # K9780062068422
