“Nesbø’s storytelling abilities are incomparable. Nemesis is crime novel as art form and great entertainment.”

Jo Nesbo’s surly and reclusive Norwegian detective Harry Hole (pronounced Hooleh) is back in 2002’s Nemesis. Nesbo established Hole in The Bat and Cockroaches and then produced a phenomenal novel with his 2000 novel The Redbreast – one the genre’s best, akin to Stieg Larsson in narrative quality. Hole is engaged to investigate a bank robbery that went wrong, resulting in the death of a bank teller. A wider network of evil is uncovered and Hole is heavily ...more
I was nowhere near as impressed with Nemesis as I was Harry Hole's previous outing, The Redbreast. This one was nothing more than your average detective/bank heist story. The emotional impact of the tale did not match the previous installment either. But I think I mostly didn't care for this story ...more

Inspector Harry Hole of the Oslo police is an alcoholic who's trying to stay on the wagon. That's hard for the detective, who tends to follow his own rules and infuriate his bosses. In this book Harry gets involved with two investigations: a bank heist that left a woman employee dead; and the alleged suicide of a young woman.
To investigate the bank robbery Harry and his partner Beate Lønn - who can remember every face she's ever seen - study CCTV tapes of the holdup. These provide clues that le ...more
Harry Hole is revisited by an old girlfriend from his more addictive years and somehow she ends up dead and Harry is the most obvious perpetrator.

Pageturner αστυνομικό με τα όλα του. Γραφή που ρέει, πολύ δουλεμένη πλοκή και με έναν ρυθμό που σε κρατάει από το γιακά όσο σου πετάει μικρές πληροφορίες και ανατροπές και χαρακτήρες που, χωρίς να ξεχωρίζουν, σου μένουν και διακρίνονται ο ένας από τον άλλον. Μην περιμένετε γραφή που θα σας εκτοξεύσει (αν και το βιβλίο είναι μετάφραση από την αγγλική μετάφραση, δε θα μου έκανε εντύπωση αν ο Nesbo είναι κανένας βιτρουόζος της πένας και όλη του η ομ ...more
Заплетена история за любов, отхвърляне и отмъщение. Сюжетна линия и за циганите в скандинавските общества - не разбрах само, как Ана е наследила огромна къща в Осло от баба си (световно известна оперна певица), след като родителите и са били цигани-номади.
Беше ми интересно да прочета и за банковите обири и за това как полицията се бори с тях.
Над 500 страници е и не бе скучна дори за момент.
A zatim, u poslednjoj trecini je Nesbø jednostavno poludeo (opet) ali s obzirom da ovog puta imamo dve paralelne price u realnom vremenu, isto tako imamo i krajnje zakukuljeno, zamumuljeno finale.
Nesbø se toliko (previse) trudi da napravi sto vise obrta da to na kraju ispadne real mess. ...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
I know exactly what I felt at the beginning of Nemesis (and through three quarters of the plot):
I thought, it was one of the best mystery books I ever read.
And then...the final spurt towards the finishing line...and...my initial sensations about my reading orgasm went rapidly downwards. And, believe or not, I finished it, if not confused, but more conflicted than I'd like to.
The Book#4 in the series is VERY VERY complex. Many ...more
Ο ήρωας του είναι απόλυτα ανθρώπινος, με τα δικά του βάσανα και προβλήματα που τον κάνουν απολύτως συμπαθή.
Σε αυτήν την περιπέτεια, ο Χάρι Χόλε έχει βυθιστεί στην κατάθλιψη, απαρηγόρητος για το θάνατο της συνεργάτιδας του και κάνει ακόμα μια συνειδητή προσπάθεια να απέχει από το αλκοόλ. Συγκατοικεί στο γραφείο του με τον Χάλβορσεν, για τον οποίο αποτελεί ένα είδος μέντορα, έχοντας το ρίξει στους πο ...more
I really enjoyed the mystery on this one, how it split off into multiple different little mysteries and then how they all came back together in the end. I was actually quite clueless until the very last moment regarding the whodunit portion of the story. I thought I had it all sorted out but was pleasantly surprised when I realized I was wrong. *GASP* Yes, I totally did just admit to being wrong abo ...more
This book is the fourth in the Harry Hole series and the second in what is called The Oslo Trilogy. The story is complex and multi-layered. It's almost breathtaking when all the pieces fall into place at the end.
It's hard to write too much without giving away spoilers. Let me just say that I think all hell is going to break loose in the next book in the series.
Povězme si, co vlastně nutí vydavatele knihu zařadit do kategorie kriminální žánr:

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 ...more
