For years I have put Jo Nesbo’s Harry Hole series on my “to-read list,” so, this summer I buckled down and read all 11 back to back. I don’t regret it. In fact, hearing about Oslo in February put July in Florida in perspective. Enough about background and on to The Thirst. What I didn’t like: I thought this would be about the dangers of social media but half way through it seemed that was dropped for an older, over done in my opinion, sort of killer. What I loved: all the characters and their in ...more

As you can tell this was a one day read for me which translate into it was great and I couldn't put it down till I finished it. If you love mysteries you'll love this one well written and ended with an unexpected twist

Few authors are sufficiently talented 0r brave enough to create a main character that is over the top compelling and thoroughly unappealing. Yet that is precisely what Nordic writer Jo Nesbo has done with his alcoholic, demon possessed, sometimes suicidal Oslo police detective Harry Hole. Don't believe me? Nesbo is the recipient of the Glass Key for the best Nordic crime novel and his books have sold thirty-three million copies in fifty languages. Basing my opinion on his Police (2013) and now

Jo nesbo at his best , a convoluted murder mystery, thriller. Nothing more to be said really if your thinking of reading this you've probably read the other 10 .

Of course Harry Hole didn't die in his last novel or even if he had he may have miraculously come back to life anyway. For Gods sake man settle down with Rakel & just live happily ever after. Of course not , don't be a fool. There will always have to be another case, more disasters & brutal serial killers that only Harry can deal with. I know these books are so far fetched & I would have thought that Nesbo would have run out of ideas by now, In some ways I think he has but yet it is ...more

92. The Thirst by Jo Nesbo
Harry Hole is brought back onto a case yet again by his enemy, Bellman, who is about to be appointed justice minister. A modern day vampire is cruising Oslo, using Tinder to find his victims. Harry soon figures out who is doing it, but things are not adding up. A would-be academic who specializes in vampirism offers his help, and the boiler room is set up again. There are twists galore, and one of the hanging threads from two books ago is very nicely tied up. Bad cops,

I generally love the Harry Hole books, but I found this latest offering slightly disappointing. Whilst there were the usual red herrings, I guessed the "baddie" fairly early on and the book lacked tension. I found myself wishing the author would just get on with it - it could have been a shorter and more effective outing.

I'm never sure if the awkward language in these Scandinavian mysteries is due to translation or an attempt to give a flavor of the original. Blood, both in the real and the kinship sense, flows freely as a serial killer stalks Oslo. The snake running loose in the social democracy Eden. Detective Harry Hole blunders around, trying to stay sober and getting people killed until the bad guy confesses out of sheer frustration. Still I read the book, mostly on an airplane, so I can't say it was all ba ...more

Great dialog. Great characters.

It’s impossible to read Jo Nesbo if you have a music streaming service. He makes so many references to obscure or forgotten music that it’s too easy to get dragged down a musical rabbit hole. But well worth it!

His books are dark but good fun.

I have always enjoyed the harry Hole books and this one is no different. It is gripping from the first page and makes you want to continue to read. It is in the same style as the other books but that is what makes it a great read. Recommended.

Meanwhile back in Oslo.... Harry Hole is older more mature fighting his same demons. While the story felt a little predictable, Harry's Sherlock Holmes moment seems a shift for the series. It will be interesting to see where the next one takes us.

Certainly not the best Harry Hole novel - the plot moved along mechanically in what felt like an inevitable way: formulaic. Perhaps it's that on book 11, the Harry Hole formula no longer excites me - we shall see because I'm sure as shit still going to read the next one.

Not for the faint of heart. This is one of the most graphic murder mysteries I have read. But the plot was intriguing and keeps you guessing. Brilliant.

For whatever reason the paperback is not showing up on GR, but that's what I read. Harry Hole is an enjoyable character, and there are some good twists and turns in the plot.

Harry Hole is called to investigate a bizarre gruesome murder. He nearly falls back into alcoholism when he realizes the killer is an old nemesis. Gory, complicated but a good read.
