Nemesis (Harry Hole #4)
Gripping and surprising, Nemesis is a nail-biting thriller from one of the biggest stars in crime fiction.
Grainy closed-circuit television footage shows a man walking into an Oslo bank and putting a gun to a cashier's head. He tells the young woman to count to twenty-five. When the robber doesn't get his money in time, the cashier is executed, and two million Norwegian kro...more

This is actually the second in the series and I have to say I found it better overall than a couple of his later ones. It is interesting going backwards and read of the events alluded to in Harry's future. Witnessing the beginning of his relationship with Rakel, probing the roots of the animosity between him and certain co-workers, indeed, the department in general. Yes, Harry gets his man. But at what co...more

Když jsem četla svou první nesbøovku (Nemesis), nemohla jsem se zbavit pocitu, že i když mě kniha baví, k dokonalosti jí cosi chybí nebo možná spíš přebývá. Při četbě Pentagramu jsem pak dospěla k závěru, že se nejspíš jedná o promyšlený autorský záměr: psát knihy dost dobré na to, aby je lidé četli, ale zároveň všelijak nedokonalé a tedy i vzbuzující naději, že v příští knize se zadaří lépe.
Sama jsem právě takhle uvažovala, když jsem s...more
If you saw Harry Hole walking up to you on the sidewalk, you’d probably cross to the other side of the street. He’s close to six-and-a-half feet tall, looks tough (and is), and rarely smiles. This much-conflicted detective on the Oslo police force isn’t the kind of guy who makes friends easily or has a lot of fans either on or off the force. He’s an alcoholic who spends more time off the wagon than on, and he seems t...more
When a teller is shot and killed in a dramatic bank robbery, Oslo homicide detective Harry Hole is assigned to the team investigating the crime. But Harry, a recovering alcoholic with a ton of other issues, does not work well with others and soon finds himself investigating apart from the larger team, assisted only by a young detective and video analyst, Bea...more
Two crimes are juxtaposed in this plot, a bank robbery/murder and an apparent murder of passion. The motivation for the second is quite foggy, and becomes even foggier once the perpetrator's identity is discovered, after many red herrings are contrived along the way whose only...more
Když Kniha ZLIN vydala Nemesis, první detektivku od Jo Nesbøa na našem trhu, nikdo nemohl očekávat vlnu, která se mezi čtenáři strhne. Již utichající kult vzniklý kolem Larssonova Milénia pomalu utichal, nicméně nová voda, jež Nesbø vlil do našich luhů a hájů nechala povstat kult z popela. Češi mají detektivky rádi, o tom žádná. Každý správný...more
Added to that he's also investigating a series of robberies, this means working with people he doesn't get on with. Harry doesn't play well with others at the best of times.
New characters to get to know, hopefully they'll appear in subsequent books.
Nemesis is a suspenseful, tightly complex twisted plot, full of illusion, nothing is as it seems. Jo Nesbø once again captivates us from the opening chapter with crystal clear visuals, letting our imagination take pictures of everything happening second by second. Were all standing in a bank queue; a robber walks in and quickly controls the area. He directly stands before a female bank cashier she's given twenty five seconds for him to receive his money...more
In this story, Harry Hole, the detective in the series has many crimes occurring at one time - including one involving himself.
Harry is kind of the misfit in the police departments and does things by his own rules, which infuriates some of the other detectives. Harry is alcoholic - currently in recovery - but wakes up one morning feeling as if he has been drinking and doesn't remember what happened - and then finds that...more
A bank robbery turns to murder and a joint police team is formed to help identify the masked murderer. Studying the surveillance video, the team are baffled and worried as a series of bank robberies with similar MOs take place across Oslo, but without anyone getting killed. As if trying to identify and find the perpetrator of this crime wasn't enough, another death takes place, unrel...more

In Nemesis, Harry meets up with an old flame and wakes up with a giant gap in his memory and a dead former girlfriend. Add to that a particularly violent bank robbery, an Albanian Gypsy convict with a liking for...more
Not as much mystique or tension as in the books I've read before, but what put this in the 4 star league is the subplots and the fact that when you think the case is all wrapped...more
تبدأ عادية ومملة بعضَ الشيء ، تتصاعد الأحداث بشكل فوضوي وتكثر الصدف بطريقة غريبة حتى نصل إلى حد غير المعقول ..

This is the second book in the Oslo trilogy although one wonders if it is the 3rd or 4th book written in the series, actually it all depends where you source your information. The order in which you read them is somewhat irrelevant, they have not been translated in the same order they were originally written. 'Nemesis' is a thrilling, gripping and brilliant thriller, a bit lengthy but well worth the time.
The main p...more
But moving on. Nesbo has been called the next Stieg Larsson, and now that I've read two of Nesbo's novels, I think that's an insult--and this is from someone who liked the Millennium trilogy. (Well, except for the detailed tangents to the Caribbean and Gibraltar so Lisbeth could have sex on her terms, or the three-...more
Read a review which classed him with the other Scandinavian mystery. The advice was to read the books in order. The first in English was Redbreast, which I just downloaded. (I'd forgotten that advice and just bought the cheapest Kindle edition.)
Nemesis was good. REALLY complicated plot, focusing on a series of bank robberies, one in which a woman is killed point blank in what seems an unmotivated shoo...more
