Jo Nesbo at his best

In the tradition of the great European crime novels like "The Laughing Policeman", "Smilla's Sense of Snow" and Philip Kerr's Bernie Gunther series, Nesbo continues with his Harry Hole novels in this terrific new entry.

Hole, struggling with his alcoholism as well as his new love relationship and the death of his partner, finds himself caught up in trying to solve a murderous bank robbery while trying to convince his superiors that his partner's death is - contrary to their belief - still unsolved and that he should be allowed to pursue an investigation into it.

This is a compelling entry in the series, with rich characterizations and impeccable plotting.

Still trending up - with a bullet

Book 4 is the best Harry Hole story to date. Again I have had to deliberately restrain myself from reading Book 5 at once. That has to be a good sign. The plot is a continuation of Book 3 (The Redbreast), but not just an episode from a TV drama that begins, "Last time on ...". The new story is a complex one. The plot is carefully crafted. Harry, apparently happy, just can't resist an old flame and from there the set up begins.
The clues are all there. I'd think I'd figured it out, then, blam, suspect dead. I'd think I'd figured it out, then dismiss it and think again. Somewhere along this process, I did figure it out, but I wasn't sure until Harry revealed the truth.
Harry is the harbinger of the truth. He's as unlikely a harbinger as any, but this far into our relationship, he's now a comfortable part of the big picture. A new character is introduced, too; another unfortunate woman in Harry's seedy life. Tom Voller (aka David Hasselhoff) returns, as do Mueller and the rest of the team. There is new and old.
Sean Barrett continues his portrayal of Harry. He is growing on me. By Book 5 I expect him to be a 3.5 and by Book 6, a 4. There are no complaints.
One warning, these books are addictive!
