You'll never look at a vaccuum cleaner the same again. I love the way Nesbo murders his victims! From chasing down a contract killer from Yugoslavia to figuring out who the rapist is from a cold case featuring the Salvation Army detective Harry Hole, our flawed protagonist, remains mainly sober for this chase through the bitter cold Norwegian winter. I read all of the books in the series and this was right up there with the best of Nesbo. ( )

Another page-turner from Nesbo. Lots of plot twists and turns. My only problem was keeping the Nordic names straight! ( )

Shots ring out at a Salvation Army Christmas concert in Oslo, leaving one of the singers dead in the street. The trail will lead Harry Hole, Oslo’s best investigator and worst civil servant, deep into the darkest corners of the city and, eventually, to Croatia. An assassin forged in the war-torn region has been brought to Oslo to settle an old debt. As the police circle in, the killer becomes increasingly desperate and the danger mounts for Harry and his colleagues. ( )

Epigraph
Who is this that comes from Edom, coming from Bozrah, his garments stained crimson? Who is this, in glorious apparel, marching in the greatness of his strength? 'It is I, who announce that right has won the day, it is I,' says the Lord, 'for I am mighty to save.'
Isaiah, 63:1
Dedication
First words
Hän oli neljätoistavuotias ja varma siitä, että jos hän puristaisi silmät tiukasti kiinnni ja keskittyisi, hän pystyisi näkemään tähdet katon läpi.
She was fourteen years old and sure that if she shut her eyes tight and concentrated she could see the stars through the roof.
