Book Description

A special bundle of three of Jo Nesbo's award-winning crime titles starring the inimitable Detective Harry Hole.



The Redbreast: A report of a rare and unusual gun being fired sparks Detective Harry Hole's interest. Then a former soldier is found with his throat cut. Next, Harry's former partner is murdered. Why had she been trying to reach Harry on the night she was killed?



Nemesis: A man is caught on CCTV, shooting dead a cashier at a bank. Harry begins his investigation but after a dinner with an old flame, wakes up with no memory of the last 12 hours. Then the girl is found dead and he begins to receive threatening emails: is someone is trying to frame him for her death?



The Devil's Star: When a young woman is murdered in her Oslo flat and a tiny red diamond in the shape of a five-pointed star is found behind her eyelid, Harry is assigned the case alongside his long-time adversary Tom Waaler. On notice to quit the force, Harry is forced to drag himself out of his alcoholic stupor when it becomes apparent that Oslo has a serial killer on its hands.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Oslo Trilogy 22 April 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a three books in one deal - The Redbreast, Nemesis and The Devil's Star. It's cheaper to buy them as a trilogy and since the three should be read for full enjoyment, it makes sense to make the most of the cheaper price. The Redbreast is the weakest of the three, hence the 4-star instead of the full 5 - the other two are very good. The Redbreast tends to drag and it takes a while to get into it. The constant swinging from wartime to current can get confusing and it's easy to lose the thread of the storyline sometimes, but don't despair, it does improve halfway through! Reading it on the Kindle makes it awkward to flick back to check, so sometimes you end up groping in the dark a little! A great read overall with a meaty plot and a good pace.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oslo Tilogy 12 Feb. 2011
By Oscar
Format:Kindle Edition
I am reviewing the books not the price, never occurred to me to buy them separately, which by reading the other review I could have saved money.
Just absolutely love Jo Nesbo, Harry is my hero!
Have enjoyed all the books and also getting to know the characters who develop in each book. Each book is full of twists and turns. All the plots are well thought out and keep you guessing. I have read absolutely loads of crime/thriller books - Jo Nesbo does not disappoint and is definitely in my top 10

5.0 out of 5 stars The Oslo trilogy 4 Jan. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Reading all three books consecutively is a bit of a marathon but once I got started I was hooked. There are twists and turns that kept me guessing. The end was an anticlimactic but enjoyable nonetheless.
The sub plots kept the pace of the book ticking along and added another dimension. Well worth a read.

5.0 out of 5 stars ALL DIFFERENT YET ALL THE SAME 20 July 2014
By Clive
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm fairly new to Jo Nesbo and, having been extremely impressed with 'The Son', I decided to read through all of the Nesbo books in chronological order. Other reviewers seem to feel that the earlier books; 'The Bat' and 'Cockroaches' were inferior to the later works but I thoroughly enjoyed both, so I looked forward to getting into the next three books set out in 'The Oslo Trilogy'.

I can see why these three books are set as a trilogy as they do, indeed, follow a common thread through them all, with one of the main villains only getting his just rewards at the end of the last book, 'The Devil's Star'.

'The Redbreast' is unlike any other Jo Nesbo that I've read so far in that the story switches, constantly, between modern day Oslo and the Eastern front of 1944, and a very effective device this is too. All of the characters have highly complex and interlocking stories and features and the plot line is as convoluted and complex as any Jeffery Deaver novel. Speaking of other authors, the late James A. Mitchener used a device of 'resonance' in his stories frequently, to echo the same plot line in different time periods. Nesbo does that here too as, in both time periods, there are women, mother and daughter, forced into sexual compromise by powerful bosses. The 'reveal' is excellent as it seems that Harry has, indeed, been hunting a genuinely dead man who is now going around killing people. And if you want to solve that riddle, you'll have to read the book! Some of the niggles that I've had with the other Nesbo books are here too. For example, Harry's love affair with Rakel is a bit far fetched (powerful, strong and 'damaged' woman, sworn off men and highly protective of her only child, falls for the alcoholic, vomit reeking, policeman). And then there's the guns again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Harry Hole the new Blomkvist! 8 Jan. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Harry Hole the new Blomkvist. An excellent trilogy to rival the Millennium Trilogy. Real emotional involvement plus really good crime mysteries. Read these on the recommendation of a friend of a friend - for once really good advice. I didn't pay way over the odds though - shop around.
