"Nesbø's storytelling abilities are incomparable. Nemesis is crime novel as art form and great entertainment."—USA TodayThe #1 international bestseller from one of the most celebrated crime writers in Europe—the New York Times bestselling author of The Snowman—Jo Nesbø's extraordinary thriller Nemesis features Norwegian homicide detective Harry Hole, "the next in the long line of great noir crime detectives," (San Diego Union-Tribune) in a case as dark and chilling as an Oslo winter's night. The second Harry Hole novel to be released in America—following the critically acclaimed publication of The Redbird—Nemesis is a superb and surprising nail-biter that places Jo Nesbø in the company of Lawrence Block, Ian Rankin, Michael Connelly, and other top masters of crime fiction. Nesbø has already received the Glass Key Award and the Booksellers' Prize, Norway's most prestigious literary awards. Nemesis is proof that there are certainly more honors in this extraordinary writer's future.

This is book 4 in the Harry Hole Series.

Book introduces the character, Beate Lønn.

In this book there is too much going on! In my opinion, unnecessary complication of the plot with introducing many new characters, whose roll is really insignificant, and also so many unnecessary twists. But in general - interesting, Page turner, especially in the first half of narrative.

This story is too detailed and very convoluted. It is supposedly about revenge but this concept is used only as a plot device with no insight into the idea of revenge itself.

Very entertaining cop mystery. Felt fairly typical for the genre, but it definitely kept me reading and I'd like to read the next one.

Best Nesbo so far. Kept me guessing right to the end.

This book #4 in the Detective Harry Hole series set in Oslo but it is important to read The Redbreast (#3 in the series) BEFORE you read this one because of logical linkages among the books; this one’s a wonderfully-interwoven story involving a couple of murder investigations; only small problem is that things in the final 30 pages seemed to me to get a bit muddled but maybe it was clearly written and I just did not understand or was tired but couldn’t stop reading.

A great read. Not as strong as The Snowman, but a building point that leads up to the growth this writer went through.
