Njoy free will and in general consider ourselves in control of our own livesJo NesboHaving said that there is excellence in Literary Naturalism The above doesn t mean we can t enjoy a well written novel an intriguing mystery a flawed anti hero a well crafted story written in the style of literary Naturalism nthough Nesbo seems to be moving away from this towards Romanticism as the series progress Still it doesn t mean we can t enjoy the works of Jo Nesbo I didIn Jo Nesbo s words I come from a family of readers and story tellers With a librarian mother and a father who sat before the fire and told the ids stories they wanted to hear each repetition bringing something new to the tale Jo s foundation was carved in stone Again in his own life story we sense the determinism filtering into his life he wanted to be a soccer star but an injury put a uick stop to this with a dreadful feeling of fate guiding his life he entered the military in the hopes something would happen what happened was Self Discipline thinking he might want to be an economist he entered the world of finance which he abandoned as well someone told him he could play guitar he only Trading Places: The Netherlandish Merchants in Early Modern Venice knew 3 chords and he formed several bands Di Derre being the most successful and finally he wrote on an airplane to begin with and he never stoppedYes the books should be read in order For an American audience Harry Hole can be likened to Harry Bosch he defies authority is an outcast within his own organization is best left alone to do this job his office is at the end of the hall is of an anti hero than a hero has trouble with his romantic life lives alone has a fierce propensity for justice as opposed to the Law and once let loose is like a pit bull with a bone fastened to his jaws But perhaps the most compelling reason why Harry Hole has such a following is Nesbo s devastating characterization of what exactly comprises a flawed hero Upon reflection American hard boiled writers don t come close to accomplishing the same This is not too dissimilar to the way Nesbo sees himself Bjarne M ller my former boss says people like me always choose the line of most resistance It s in what he calls our accursed nature That s why we always end up on our own I don tnow I like being alone Perhaps I have grown to like my self image of being a loner tooI think you have to find something about yourself that you like in order to survive Some people say being alone is unsociable and selfish But you re independent and you don t drag others down with you if that s the way you re heading Many people are afraid of being alone But it made me feel strong free and invulnerableAndah yes there is the matter of plot So how do we justify this decided streak of fatedeterminism within the novels with Nesbo s apparent mastery of plot The two seemingly ought to contradict each other On the one hand we have Nesbo s almost Shakespearean tendency to cast characters as marionette puppets on the strings of fate the very opposite of plot while on the other hand we are riveted by the very complex actions and reactions made by Harry Hole during his investigations Nesbo is a master at not adding anything superfluous to his novels Perhaps it is an unholy marriage between the two that transfixes us His plots are intricate very complex the seemingly irrelevant details exposed throughout the novels become larger than life as the story closes and they can weave through time forward and backward as the story unfolds But with a little alacrity we can remember we are reading Naturalism and so it isn t always Harry Hole making events happen but rather the reverse it is the events that move Harry Hole Again it is a matter of preference but in Nesbo s case it is done with utter expertise as a writerThe expositionsetting is often Scandinavia the weather is somber the descriptions grey like the people absorbed with alcohol and withdrawn if not bundled and seuestered And yet the dialogue and scenes are full of references to other milieus continents languages and cleverly hidden philosophical references that speak to a widely cultured audience as opposed to *American Writers Of This Genre Who Rarely Venture Beyond The *writers of this genre who rarely venture beyond the of their land if not their own State And as with plot there are no superfluous details Everything in the novels matters and Nesbo does not forget even the tiniest detail to which he s made a seemingly furtive reference earlier on in the story This is one of the biggest reasons why I love Jo Nesbo In this 10th book in the Harry Hole series a serial En plein coeur killer is targeting police officers The novel can be read as a standaloneA serialiller in Oslo has a bizarre agenda Time after time the murderer lures a cop to the scene of an unsolved crime then viciously The Bookshop on the Shore kills himher in a manner somehow connected to what originally happened thereHarry Hole is not available to assist the investigation so other members of the crime suad have to pick up the slack as best they can This includes Harry s former boss Gunnar Hagen the team leader Katrine Bratt a clever intuitive detective Beate Lonn who has a freakish ability to remember every face she s ever seen and Stale Aune a psychologist who s determined to give up police workMeanwhile there s plenty of other police stuff going on in this thriller A cop guarding the hospital room of a comatose patient is too easily distracted by attractive nurses and odd noises A police academy student becomes infatuated with her professor and determined to seduce him Mikael Bellman the new police chief is as corrupt as they come and anxious to hide his previous crimes Thus Bellman had to suspend his sidekick the murderous Truls Berntsen because of an unexplained fat bank account that might draw attention to Bellman Ironically Berntsen spends his free time stalkingobsessing over Bellman s beautiful wife To top it off the drug dealer Valentin thought to be dead seems to be on the loose and is suspected of being the copiller Almost everyone in this book seems to be a potential victim including civilians close to the crime suad This is a gripping story with fascinating characters gruesome crimes and surprising twists Very good bookYou can follow my reviews at Police is another solidly gripping installment of the Harry Hole series This time someone is brutally murdering police officers at the site of old unsolved homicides where they have investigated and the trail has gone cold As "the body count starts ratcheting up and it hits closer and closer to home the police " body count starts ratcheting up and it hits closer and closer to home the police they have no leads and their best investigator is not available to help outI feel this series is at its most entertaining and spine chilling when dealing with serial illers and I m happy that this book went back to that theme There were so many clues and red herrings in here and for a while sinister vibes were coming off of everyone It was great fun and I couldn t turn the pages fast enough About two thirds of the way through I started to get an inkling of what might ve Been Going On And Was Pleasantly Surprised going on and was pleasantly surprised I turned out to be right for onceAs a random aside I m someone who s uite sueamish and the crimes in this book are gruesome a Jo Nesb hallmark but for some reason that doesn t bother me in this series I ve been trying to figure out why for the last four books and I still can t put my finger on it Maybe it s so outlandishly horrifying that it comes across as uite hammed up and therefore I find it to be great fun Although if that s the explanation I m not sure what it says about meI noticed with this and the last book that even though each is a standalone and the main crime is solved there are a few loose ends that doesn t get wrapped up and are carried over into the next book I personally prefer my books to be wholly self contained due to poor memory issues but this just means I can t wait too long until I read the next one.

I think this will be my last Jo Nesbo novel This book starts out great but it becomes purposely confusing and misleading to the point of utter annoyance The storyline is all over the place with several plot threads happening simultaneously jumping back and forth There are 3 main suspects and the pronoun he is often used in place of a name to eep the reader guessing the identity of the iller He did this then he did that When you combine that with the confusion of so many convoluted interwoven plots and red herrings it became tiresome and frustrating In the end I didn t care who did it I just wanted this book to end Rarely give out 5 stars but this is a no brainerEvery time I read one of Nesbo s books I am struck again by just how good he is The previous book ended with Harry being shot by Oleg the young man he helped raise son of the woman he loves This one opens with a comatose patient lying in a hospital bed under police protection If he could speak he d have a few things to say about a couple members of the force one currently under suspension the other the new chiefIt s been months since the shooting Harry s old crew have moved on without him Someone is illing police officers involved in old cases that were never solvedThat s all I ll say about the plot for 2 reasons First it s so complex as to be almost impossible to summarize when you could be reading the book instead of this review Second I don t want to spoil any surprises Part of the joy in reading these books is trying to guess what happens next Suffice to say just as you think you The Day Christ Was Born: The True Account of the First 24 Hours of Jesus's Life know what s going on think againNesbo is a master of misdirection There are always multiple characters that are candidates for the bad guy each with a credible motive As the story progresses youeep changing your mind as to the identity of the iller There are many reoccurring characters story lines from previous books are continued There are shifting alliances many hidden agendas not all of the old crew will survive the fallout from this case Unlike many authors Nesbo doesn t shy away from bumping off a beloved characterTension slowly builds as we wait to see who will be the next target you ll consider homicide yourself if anyone tries to come between you this book Once you re in its grip it s compulsive reading because you have to now how it all shakes out Intricate plotting sharp dialogue compelling characterswhat s not to like You become completely invested in these people want to see them get what they deserve for better or worseI wanted to add a note about the translation Sometimes when a novel is converted to English it has a slightly awkward flow that reminds you it was originally in another language Not so here Don Bartlett has done a fantastic job maintaining the voice of each character the wry dark gallows humourThis is thriller writing at its best with an intense pace jaw dropping twists If you haven t read this series before don t start here Get the first one Each subseuent book is all the richer as you get to now the histories of each character their relationships What a pleasure 10 starsPolice Anyone who doesn t dare to stand up for justice should have a guilty conscience Police is a riveting follow up to Phantom the previous novel in the Harry Hole series and seamlessly picks up where Phantom ended Excerpt from the end of Phantom view spoilerThe recoil made the barrel jump and the third bullet hit him in the head He fell Beneath him darkness And he plunged into it Until it swallowed him up and swept him into a cooling painless nothing At last he thought And that was Harry Hole s final thought That at long long last he was free hide spoiler I now I am a sucker for a Harry Hole book but this one has to be the best yet I simply could not put it down Nesbo spends most of the book playing mind tricks on the reader and even in the last chapter he gives things a little twist that has you sitting on the edge of your seat Multiple murders multiple murderers and the loss of some very unexpected people make it completely enthralling There are things I would like to say but at the same time I do not want to give anything away that might spoil other people s enjoyment You need to read this book nowing Nothing About It Except That about it except that is really really good After Phantom s amazing twist hanger I was almost delirious with glee *and trepidation when I heard the next Harry Hole book Police *trepidation when I heard the next Harry Hole book Police coming outSo was my anticipation satisfiedYes however not in the way I expected Police is a weightier tome than other Hole novel s and thusly the length of the novel evokes
tension as a slow burn rather than a furious action packed feast as a slow burn rather than a furious action packed feast perhaps less immediately exciting Nesbo plies us with a smorgasbord of corruption deeply disturbing villains and tormented decisions from our main characters which had my nerves fraying to the point of madnessNesbo has a talent for taking crime thriller tropes and twisting them into deranged scenarios than leave most other authors behind as cliche peddlers While it takes time to warm up to this book it is definitely worth it The end perhaps not as shocking as the Phantom I feel will stick in heads for a while yetAs to a aforementioned tw I m frank to confess that I have no idea how to review this book and I will also say that to my mind a number of reviewers and even the publishers themselves have given away ey elements of the plot that will diminish the enjoyment of the book for anyone unfortunate enough to have read their commentsSuffice it to say that I thoroughly enjoyed the book and was on the edge of my seat for much of the time I spent with it Readers who have enjoyed Jo Nesbo s series featuring Oslo detective Harry Hole will certainly want to look for this one One can safely say that the book opens with the murder of a policeman and that it soon becomes apparent that a serial Integrity Restored: Helping Catholic Families Win the Battle Against Pornography killer is targeting police officers for some reasonnown only to him or herself The tension begins to build from the first page and doesn t let up until the last Readers will spend a good deal of time with their hearts in their throats But best approach the book blind don t read reviews other than this one of course and don t look at either the front or the back of the book until you have finished itview spoiler My only reservation about this book is that Nesbo gets a little too cute for his own good here From the beginning he takes the reader down so many false trails that in the end you begin to disbelieve everything that seems to be happening This is a relatively small complaint but in the end it did distract a bit from the thrill of the story Still a very good read hide spoiler Interesting plot line marred by too much gimmickry and manipulationA The Taste of Night (Signs of the Zodiac, killer is targeting police officers specifically officers who were involved in the investigation of unsolved murders Theiller lures an officer to the scene of the previous crime and ills the cop in a way similar to the original murder The investigators believe that if they can only figure out the iller s motive maybe they can find this relentless iller who has left them few if any other cluesMeanwhile a man lies in a coma in a heavily guarded hospital room Newly appointed Oslo police chief Mikael Bellman worries about what the man might reveal if he ever returns to consciousnessNesb sets up three main suspects in the police murders and spends most of the book manipulating the reader into thinking it s X then Y then Z He also tries to generate excitement by putting characters in apparent danger cutting away to another scene and then returning to the danger scene uite often the danger scene turns out to be not at all dangerous because the mysterious threat is now revealed to be a friend or co worker Nesb also freuently makes a situation seem threatening by not telling the reader who a character is just referring to him.

As he so that the reader thinks the worstThese gimmicks to gin up excitement and fear in the reader are so freuent and obvious that it becomes like the fable of the boy who cried wolf After he s done it a few times the reader recognizes the gimmick and just wants to get through the sceneThere is a broader repetition in Nesb s writing He repeats certain ey characters places in Harry s life and plot developments involving those The Road From Home: The Story Of An Armenian Girl key characters from earlier books to this book I can t say without being spoiler y but if you ve read the early books in the series you ll spot it In Nesb s serialiller books I also feel like the Exile and Pilgrim killer s voice is virtually identical from book to book Nesb s writing in the non serialiller books like Phantom for example is far stronger and engagingMaybe I expect too much of this series now up to 10 books I started reading it when The Redbreast was first published in the US and have read every book in the series except The Cockroaches After this long with a series I feel I now Harry his colleagues enemies and very small circle of loved ones and I welcome reading about them I always find the depiction of Oslo and its society and politics fascinating And I did read every last bit of The Police I just wish I didn t spend so much of the time feeling manipulated and as if Nesb had been relying on tricks and set pieces than heartfelt storytelling Book Review The rat bit once into the leather shoe Licked the metal again the salty metal that protruded between the two of the fingers on the right hand Scrabbled up the suit jacket that smelled of sweat blood and food so many types of food that the linen material must have been in a garbage can She ran up the arm across the shoulder stopped at a bloodstained bandage around the neck Then she scuttled up the chest There was still a strong smell coming from the two round holes in the suit jacket Sulfur gunpowder One was right by the heart It was still beating She continued up to the forehead licked the blood running in a single thin stream from the blond hair Went down to the lips nostrils eyelids There was a scar along the cheek The rat stopped again as if considering how to get through In endings we find a new beginning This scrubbing of one death into something newly born as books in series do from epilogue to prologue as it were takes time during which trenchant attitudes must give way to calm and patience Is Harry Hole dead Did a rodent a rat scurry elsewhere or did it drawn by his blood bury its teeth into the scar tissue on his face and beyond into the elastic flesh and ruthlessly gnaw its way into the soft flesh of Harry s brain Anticipation Much like a cockroach is determined when it skitters beneath our floor boards we grit our teeth and open the book to its first page And then as a reader we smirk perhaps admire Nesbo for playing us like a fiddle in The Phantom but let s face it we now Harry isn t dead The publisher has declared it so by releasing this another Harry Hole novel and let s face it it isn t often in the history of publications that a crime series continues on without its hero And so we sneer fully expecting Harry to jump out at us in the first few chapters a tall viking like figure victorious scarred beyond belief but somehow made new and resplendent and yes flawed beyond redemption once again ready to flounce his enemies And you d be wrong to think itFlouncing his readers preconceptions is what Jo Nesbo does for a living Jo Nesbo is a hidden manipulator Using vertical and horizontal control bars in different forms the book becomes an ancient form of performance in which we become his puppets where our feelings are stretched taut like strings in a morality play to which only a master puppeteer holds the Hannah Montana: The Movie key Fool you once fool you twiceand fool you thriceIf you ve made it this far in the Harry Hole series you understand the veracity of thisGR friendsnow that what I read is crime fiction Why I read crime fiction is an entirely different uestion So what follows is the why of it In painting something happened after impressionism post modernism and abstraction took hold moving power away from the artist to the critic after all none of it could be understood In music Stravinsky was the father of such abstraction in classical music In literature Joyce and others decided a sentence could be pages long naturalism came to the forefront More and literary authors came to believe that just because they thought it it must be good Plot was abandoned and now readers of such writing cling to style and prose as their fix having all but forgotten the importance of
