The Short of It:
Harry Hole is back and this one does not disappoint.
The Rest of It:
When a crazy lunatic goes on a murdering spree, Harry Hole comes out of retirement. The murderer’s weapon? A set of steel teeth and it’s just a grisly as you imagine only with a lot less gore than previous novels and not nearly as twisted.
Harry Hole fans will be really happy with this one. It’s fast-paced, suspenseful and not riddled with red herrings. It kept me guessing and I had a really hard time putting it down to do things like feed my family or sleep. I really like how the story came together so I highly recommend it to anyone who loves Harry, but also to anyone who just wants to read good crime fiction. As with all of the Harry Hole books, it does help to know some of Harry’s backstory but enough is provided for you to get a good picture of who you are dealing with.
If you gave up on Nesbø because of his last few books, give him another go because this one was great.
