“Nesbø’s storytelling abilities are incomparable. Nemesis is crime novel as art form and great entertainment.”
The #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 book ruined my concentration for two days...
As soon as I started listening to this book I couldn't lay it down. I barely got any work done for two days. Jo Nesbø writes compelling, clean crime stories which keeps you guessing until the end. You don't get grossed out by nasty, perverted details of torture and terror that a lot of authors nowadays fill their novels with. The protagonist is an interesting character full of contradictions. Jo Nesbø is great in his creating of believable characters, and the narrator did an awesome job giving voices to them. I hope many more of this author's books become available on audio in English soon.
I am loving the Harry Hole series. I was disappointed by the narrator but the exceptional writing and story-telling by Nesbo shines through. Highly recommended!
Is this a kid? Does he think this is a comedy? This is bad!!! After listening to Robin Sachs read, this is a big let down. I enjoy these books so much but not this one. The reader is very distracting.
