A Rattling Good Thriller,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Redbreast: Harry Hole 3 (Paperback)
You must have noticed the marketing drive behind Jo Nesbo by now! Posters popping up everywhere and if you are anything like me you may stop and think - too much hype? Well, I am pleased to say that having just finished The Redbreast, this is a good police thriller, with a sympathetic leading man in Harry Hole, and a dense structure that will keep your heart paced right to the very end. In places the Norwegian history and the dark tales of World War II may seem a little confusing but stick with it, Nesbo wants it to be...
For those like me who are new to the series and get hoplessly lost as to the order of the novels here it is
