My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I originally read this in June 2010 and is part of my transfer of reading from the Now Reading plugin to Goodreads.
This is the second Joe Nesbø novel that I have read. The third in the series written by Jo Nesbø a Norwegian author. Unfortunately for me this book precedes the first on that read. This meant that some of the subplots were heading in directions that I had prior knowledge. I have seen other reviews that.have noted the out of sequence translations into English.
None the less it was a cracking yarn. Again featuring the flawed Harry Hole struggling with himself, his life and the investigation. Drawing in contemporary themes of state security and delving into Norway’s past and those who fought with the Germans and those who fought against them. A great read with lots of interesting diversions and a satisfying end.
I really like reading books in order. At least there is more to come.
