it was amazing
bookshelves: crime

I have survived discovering that I am "obviously not the brightest bulb", and I shall probably recover from awarding five stars to a book summed up in one word - "Incompetence" (see other reviews elsewhere). I was comforted, however, to read only today in an intelligent newspaper a claim by Jo Nesbo's publishers that one of his books sells every twenty-three seconds. Can't all be stupid, can we?

I greatly enjoyed making the acquaintance of Harry Hole in Redbreast; meeting him again in Nemesis begins to fill out the character. The relationship with Rakel remains difficult. That Harry himself undermines it when he wishes for nothing more than to cherish it, makes him more human.

As for the plot, which kept me turning pages past my bedtime, I would be surprised if one scathing reviewer has many equals in foreseeing (guessing?) the outcome.

Don't be put off. Nemesis will catch up with you.
