After reading the 4th of the Harry Hole series, I began to realize that this series is even better than the all-known Millennium trilogy. For the slightly stereotypical but still ingeniously contrived detective this time it's personal. While investigating the case of a serial bankrobber-killer, someone tries to implicate him a murder case. ( )

An intricate plot with surprising developments that makes this story an interesting read. The characters are expertly drawn and the narrative is well-paced. Nesbo's plots are intriguing and I look forward to the next one! ( )

In this fourth Harry Hole-novel, Nesbø continues to show what a great story-teller he is and that he has really figured out his main character thoroughly. The stakes are as high as can be since it's obvious that there is a huge conspiracy surrounding the case and Hole is put into an impossible situation, made worse by his arch-nemesis Waaler. I love that the reader know so much more about what is going on than Hole himself does - it makes for quite a riveting reading. Looking forward to seeing how it all turns out in The Devil's Star/Djävulsstjärnan. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0061655511, Paperback)

Captured on closed-circuit television: A man walks into an Oslo bank, puts a gun to a cashier’s head, and tells her to count to twenty-five. When he doesn’t get his money fast enough, he pulls the trigger. The young woman dies—and two million Norwegian kroner disappear without a trace.

After a drunken evening with his former girlfriend, Anna Bethsen, Police Detective Harry Hole wakes up at home with a headache, no cell phone, and no memory of the past twelve hours. That same day, Anna is found shot dead in her bedroom, making Hole a prime suspect in an investigation led by his hated adversary Tom Waaler. Meanwhile, the bank robberies continue with unparalleled savagery, sending rogue detective Hole from the streets of Oslo to steaming Brazil in a race to close two cases and clear his name. But Waaler isn’t finished with his longtime nemesis quite yet.
