The Devil’s Star by Jo Nesbø

The Devil's StarThe Devil’s Star by Jo Nesbø

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I read this in Febraury 2010 and is part of my transfer of reading from the Now Reading plugin to Goodreads

This is the first in this series that I have read. Indeed it is the first novel by Norwegian author Jo Nesbø that I have read. I am a big fan of Scandinavian crime fiction. They seem to a different take on story telling or perhaps my Norwegian heritage is getting the better of me.

The story follows our protagonist Harry Hole a good but flawed detective who is trying to solve a complicated crime. In some ways this is a police procedural story but the complexity of Harry Hole means that the story twists and turn like a figure skater on thin ice. The story is complex with enough subplots and red herrings to keep the reader on their toes.

I certainly enjoyed this read and look forward to reading more.
