Police by Jo Nesbo

Well this is it. After nine previous novels, six of which I’ve read this year (and reviewed on this here blog), I’ve finally made it to the end of the Harry Hole series by Jo Nesbo. Police is the 10th book in the series and only recently published. It is the last book, but I’m hoping it’s not the final one. The story follows on from the dramatic events of Phantom. A patient lies in a coma in hospital, guarded...

The Bat by Jo Nesbo

I am a big fan of Jo Nesbo and have been working my way steadily through his Harry Hole novels for over a year now.

Even better than the mighty The Snowman, which tends to top...

Cockroaches by Jo Nesbo

Regular readers of book reviews on the blog will know I’m a big fan of Jo Nesbo’s Harry Hole novels. Don’t believe me? See my reviews of Phantom, Nemesis  and The Redeemer. Nesbo’s books are well-written, fast-paced and exciting – a real cut above your average crime novel. Nesbo’s maverick, alcoholic detective, Harry Hole is a likeable, if flawed, character. Cockroaches is described as ‘an...

Nemesis by Jo Nesbo

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a book review on here – too long! I’ve been reading longer books and they take a long time to get through before I can post a review.Nemesis is one of Jo Nesbo’s Harry Hole novels. Hole is your typical flawed, alcoholic fictional detective and, I think, a great character. I’ve read a number of Harry Hole books before and I’ve read them all out of order. This...
