The Salvation Army is structured as a war agent against sin and so this view from the front lines makes sense to some degree, but the discontinuity between the two extremes was at times unsettling. In the capable hands of a talented writer like Nesbo, though, the dichotomy is explored and mined for all its worth, and we see roles reversed and twists and turns revealed in an exciting and fast moving thriller.

Hole and his dysfunctional Oslo detectives are on the trail of an execution in broad daylight of a Salvation Army soldier when the trail gets deep into international crime and hidden secrets. For Hole fans and for Nordic noir aficionados. View 2 comments. In this 6th book in the 'Harry Hole' series, the detective is on the trail of a wily hitman. The book can be read as a standalone.

This apparently goes unreported as there seem to be no consequences. During that same year - during the break-up of Yugoslavia - a Croatian youth is dubbed "Little Redeemer" for his brave deeds against Serbian militias.

Fast In this 6th book in the 'Harry Hole' series, the detective is on the trail of a wily hitman. Fast forward a dozen years and the "Little Redeemer" - now a hitman for hire - goes to Norway and kills Robert Karlsen, a respected young member of the Norwegian Salvation Army. The hitman soon discovers he mistakenly assassinated the wrong guy.

He then goes after Robert's brother Jon Karlsen, the true target.

Enter Inspector Harry Hole and his team of detectives, whose job it is to capture the murderer and prevent further deaths. A great deal of the book involves the hitman chasing Jon Karlsen and Hole's team chasing the killer. Much happens along the way: Of course there are plenty of side issues: Robert Karlsen has a reputation for liking young girls and seems to have gotten friendly with a year-old Croatian refugee.

Jon Karlsen has a girlfriend but is also involved with a married woman whose husband wants to download Salvation Army properties. Hole develops a relationship with the pretty Salvation Army worker, Martine, who was raped at the beginning of the book.

And there are lots more interesting characters who interact in a variety of ways. Jo Nesbo loves to include lots of misdirection and unexpected twists in his books, and he outdoes himself here. The book is chock full of surprises. This is a complex, engaging story. A good mystery thriller. You can follow my reviews at https: I struggled a bit at the beginning as the POV switched from one person to another with no explanation as to who each person was.

However it soon became clear that there was a good reason for this and it certainly helped to prolong the sense of mystery. Harry is his usual self, smarter than the average cop, always refusing to bow down to authority and in a constant battle with alcoholism. The story is gripping and it is almost impossible to guess what will happen next. I found it to be a really great read and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys a good, gritty police thriller.

Here's the thing about the recent popularity of Scandinavian writers and if you're a Nordic Thriller aficionado you couldn't care less about the distinction: If you live in Scandinavia you might consider this par for the cours Here's the thing about the recent popularity of Scandinavian writers and if you're a Nordic Thriller aficionado you couldn't care less about the distinction: If you live in Scandinavia you might consider this par for the course, ennui is imbued into the populace as it is also reflected in the works of prominent Russian writers - Anna Karenina comes to mind.

Just as we continue to struggle here in the States with our history of slavery and the resulting racial tensions, so do Europe and Scandinavia struggle in coming to terms with Nazism and the Bolshevik revolution More than a few reviewers have expressed their dissatisfaction with the Nordic writers' pre-occupation with Nazism.

And yet, the rise in popularity of these Nordic thrillers here in the States is puzzling given our strong tendency towards literary Romanticism. We like for the good guys to win, we like emotion, we like our heroes as opposed to anti-heroes we enjoy free will, and in general consider ourselves in control of our own lives.

Having said that: 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. It doesn't mean we can't enjoy the works of Jo Nesbo.

I did.

A guide to Harry Hole

In Jo Nesbo's words: Again, in his own life story we sense the determinism filtering into his life: So, this is where we start. Yes, 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 more 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. It's in what he calls our 'accursed nature'. That's why we always end up on our own. I don't know. Perhaps I have grown to like my self-image of being a loner, too I 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 invulnerable. 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 writer.

And yet, the dialogue and scenes are full of references to other millieus', 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 borders 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. I remain intrigued by events left undone such as the fate of our undiscovered villain in this and other stories.

You'll just have to read the novels to find out more. Oh, yes, as with other series this review is likely to be repeated for all unless there is a drastic divergence from what I have written here. So, if you've read this review, you've read 'em all. View all 10 comments. Ed Yorke and Harry Roolaart. I'm not. I'm southern. Yes, Harry, yes, I enjoyed this book and enjoyed it a lot. As a matte 4. As a matter of fact, I enjoyed it more than the first one I read, The Redbreast.

With that said, "our Harry" wrote an excellent review and I agreed with all he said excepting these few sentences: My boldface. Many American readers may disagree with that comment. The first "flawed hero" who comes to my mind is Dave Robicheaux although as readers, we know he is married and less a loner than Harry Hole; another comes to mind, Michael Connelly's Harry Bosch.

I'm sure others have their own suggested "flawed heroes" who were created by American authors and may disagree with Harry's statement.

Other than that, please take a look at Harry's review Harry's review of The Redeemer is here. My one complaint, and it's purely my personal problem, is the Norwegian names. But from the names in Nesbo's books, I can't tell if the person introduced is a man or woman. So I'm reading along, and in my mind it's "he this" and "he that" then, come to find out, it's a woman!

Take a look at these names and see if YOU can absolutely, positively tell if they are a man or a woman. And no, I don't have the answer. I'm not by myself either on this.

Reading some reviews of The Redbreast some time ago, a fellow was complaining about the names as well and asked "what's with those tiny zeros above some letters?

And the slash through the "o's" Damned if I know. Here we go Up front, no, I am not cosmopolitan needless to say. But I'm trying. Never mind, I've given up already. I speak southern. But will read another Nesbo. Strange names and all Thanks, Ed View all 22 comments. May 01, Marilou K. Mystery stories are always grounded in some level of manipulation by the author. A virtual army of murder suspects mysteriously comes into focus in the background, one at a time.

Trusted figures reveal hidden motives. All this is the stuff of the traditional parlor mystery and locked-room puzzles parodied in the board game Clue Colonel Mustard was found with Mr. He failed the test in The Redeemer, the sixth of his ten novels to date featuring Inspector Harry Hole of the Oslo police. The story becomes virtually unwieldy, with seemingly unrelated murder mysteries intersecting in suspect ways and too many characters turning out to be dramatically different from the ways they were first portrayed.

Harry hole isn't the typical detective we used to see. He is drunken guy and often takes drugs. But he is the only guy in Norway who have training for catching any serial killer.

He works differently thinks differently and rely on his instinct. Every chapter finishes with a He writes in a big plot, with too many characters involved everyone have something to offer from there past to be considered as a suspect.

But the best think about Jo Nesbo is that he is never gets tired to deceive the Reader. Nesbo Delivered yet again! A change of leadership at the Politi and a hired gun workaholic! Add to it the Christmas spirit and religious symbolism - forgiveness, redemption and suffering and Nesbo delivers a cracker of mystery that is both fast paced and intelligent.

It all starts with a rape. Fast forward to the present where a Salvation Army member is murdered in public and Harry with his team leads the investigation. In a pa Nesbo Delivered yet again! In a parallel track, we find the assassin who is called the little redeemer whose values are shocking for a killer! What unfolds is a sequence of twists and turns and clever red herrings placed along the way. The second half of the book could have been a bit tighter, but then it is only since the first half almost races away.

The Serbian war stories were sufficiently creepy and the twists fun. I wish, they had connected it up somehow with the victim storyline. The non-core part of the new boss and exchanges and attempts to tame Harry was fun. We see a more mature Harry who is not just a lone wolf, who also decides to groom youngsters in his team.

The series can hopefully get better now that we have put behind the recurring thread from Book 3 on the smuggled arms. Intelligent read! Bravo Nesbo! Best installment in the series, and I have a feeling it will get better and better as we read on. This book was full of twists, suspense and emotions. In true Nesbo form, you keep changing your mind about who is the guilty party, who is the victim, the motives Thank you my darling Lena and Sofia for another great BR xox.

Wonderful The plot twists are mesmerising - I was wrong footed on so many occasions. I know that this is stagecraft and in part contrived but it was enjoyable all the same. Well worth a read.
