I've added title to my only very slightly shorter hand written "to - read" shelf. My policy is to download the sample on Amazon and if I like what I've read I purchase the book. There are a lot of books on my list so don't be surprised if you don't hear anything for quite a while! Best of luck with seeking reviews - have you tried Rosie's Reviews and Readers Favourite?

I generally enjoy the Harry Hole books but I have mixed feelings about this one.
Nesbo is renowned for surprising plot twists but I felt the switch from suspect one to suspect was too abrupt.
In this book, Nesbo kills off two long-standing characters.

“At home, she did what all lonely singles do. Threw a meal for one in the microwave and realised she’d become a cliché.”
Diana J. Febry, The Skeletons of Birkbury

“The goodwill of Christmas was long faded, swept away, with the clean-up operation of drunken rampages of vandalism and the eruption of marital violence.”
