Harry Hole pulls himself out of a drunken stupor to solve another big case. This was an enjoyable read. At first I thought it was too simple and predictable but there was a nice twist that I didn't see coming. ( )

This is my first Harry Hole book
I enjoyed it very much, I thought I was going to be confused with the characters names but it was fine.
Plot. Harry is down on his luck, drinking to much, split up with his long term girl, hates his dodgy corrupt boss is about to leave the force. He reluctantly assists investigating a serial killer case thats gripping Oslo. Harry manages to work it all out, it was a very clever set up. He also gets back with his girl and his dodgy Police boss gets what he deserves in the end. Enjoyable Police drama of a book. ( )

This installment of the Harry Hole detective series was excellent. The plot was complex and engaging and the denouement was really well done. As always, the reader reads a mystery and simultaneously a novel about relationships and being human. Nice! ( )

Book description
O detetive Harry Hole está de volta. Tentando superar a morte da ex-parceira de trabalho, obcecado em provar a culpa do também investigador Tom Waaler, abandonado pela namorada e afundado no alcoolismo, ele ainda tem de lidar com um misterioso assassinato de uma jovem. Quando novas mortes começam a ocorrer, e elementos em comum vão surgindo aos olhos de Harry, ele percebe que está diante de um perigoso serial killer.
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0061133981, Paperback)

In the heat of a sweltering Oslo summer, a young woman is found murdered in her flat—with one of her fingers cut off and a tiny red star-shaped diamond placed under her eyelid. An off-the-rails alcoholic barely holding on to his job, Detective Harry Hole is assigned the case with Tom Waaler, a hated colleague whom Harry believes is responsible for the murder of his partner. When another woman is reported missing five days later, and her severed finger turns up adorned with a red star-shaped diamond ring, Harry fears a serial killer is at work. But Hole's determination to capture a fiend and to expose Waaler's crimes is leading him into shadowy places where both investigations merge in unexpected ways, forcing him to make difficult decisions about a future he may not live to see.
