I was given this book from my brother-in-law who had received it from his son for his birthday. Well I am glad he did because I am now hooked on Jo Nesbo, so much so I have downloaded three ibooks for on my phone. Yes I know you have to turn the page often when reading on a phone but I haven’t bought an iPad yet and I plan to do so soon. My reason for downloading to my phone is so that I can read them on the plane trip to France. Australia to France is a long plane trip!
I have read all the Stieg Larsson books and this book is certainly of a similar style. I’m a crime fiction fan and I like the Scandanavian setting.
From the book jacket:
On the third day he rose again. To kill. . .
It is a freezing December night and Christmas shoppers have gathered to listen to a Salvation Army carol concert. Then a shot rings out and one of the singers falls to the floor, dead. Detective Harry Hole and his team are called in to investigate but have little to work with – there is no immediate suspect, no weapon and no motive.
But when the assassin discovers he’s shot the wrong man, Harry finds his troubles have only just begun.
I listened to Jo Nesbo in an interview on Books Plus which you can listen to here. Interestingly he started his first Harry Hole novel here in Australia.
