Publisher Description

“Nesbø’s storytelling abilities are incomparable. Nemesis is crime novel as art form and great entertainment.”

—USA Today

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.

EmilyGilmour ,

A lot of twists and turns

Good detective story with a lot of twists - some a bit unrealistic, but hey, this is fiction after all. Entertaining. Good character development.

A real disappointment

The concept is great and the novel opened with promise; however, the translation is very poor. The transitions from scene to scene are difficult to follow without the help of transitional words. It is sometimes difficult to work out if the action is taking place in the past, present, or future. The really gripping aspect of the novel is the crooked cop side-story that is sadly underdeveloped, perhaps to be explored in a future novel. As for purchase of said future novel- only with a different translator.

Nemesis

I enjoyed all the characters and even when I had to go back to keep track of each one I always liked the pace of the book and the details it provided. A good crime story !
