Review:

"Bucks the trend. Nesbo's long-range plotting is careful, and the debate about the Norwegian elite's behaviour during the war cleverly managed." -- London Review of Books

"Superb." -- Daily Telegraph (London)

"Jo Nesbo is my new favorite thriller writer and Harry Hole my new hero." -- Michael Connelly

"Nesbo has a knack for Euro noir." -- Entertainment Weekly

"Nobody can delve into the dark, twisted mind of a murderer better than a Scandinavian thriller writer."--Vogue

"A well-crafted rollercoaster of a book. . . . Nesbo sets a cracking pace, the shambolic Hole is exasperating and endearing by turns, and a series of spectacular plot twists lead to a thrilling finale. Highly recommended."--The Guardian (London)

"Astonishingly confident. . . . The Devil's Star scores with an intriguing plot and Nesbo's mastery of pace and tension."--The Times (London)

"A complex tale of murder, revenge and betrayal . . . perfectly paced and painfully suspenseful. . . . Readers will delight in Hole, a laconic hero as doggedly stubborn as Connelly's Harry Bosch, and yet with a prickly appeal all his own."--Publishers Weekly, starred review

"In crime fiction terms, the ongoing Harry Hole is epic along the lines of something Count Tolstoy might have dreamed up. . . . Tremendous emotional resonance."--Toronto Star

"Superb."--Daily Telegraph (London)

"There's Nordic noir, and then there's Nesbo noir. Jo Nesbo's reputation as the reigning bad boy of Norwegian crime fiction has grown steadily in the USA with the critically acclaimed novels The Redbreast and Nemesis and now THE DEVIL'S STAR."--USA Today

"A gripping tale of political intrigue and sprawling global corruption. . . . With plenty of shootouts and intensely described chase sequences, The Redbreast certainly delivers."--Kirkus Reviews

"The dense plot is supremely detailed. . . . A crisp, clean translation. . . . Satisfying."--New York Times Book Review

"Bucks the trend... Nesbo's long-range plotting is careful, and the debate about the Norwegian elite's behaviour during the war cleverly managed."--London Review of Books

"An elegant and complex thriller . . . Ingenious design. . . . Nesbo's book eloquently uses its multiple horrors to advance a disturbing argument: suppressing history is an open invitation for history to repeat itself."--New York Times Book Review

"Reading THE REDBREAST is like watching a hit movie. . . . The pacing is swift. The plot is precise and intricate. . . . THE REDBREAST is surprisingly witty at times and often grim. But it's always smart."--USA Today

"[A] bold, ambitious thriller. . . . It's well worth sticking with the story; both the hero and the villain are as compelling as the portrayal of Norwegians doing whatever it takes to survive the war and then paying the price. Nesbo bids fair to turn Norway into serious competition for Sweden as Scandinavia's crime center."--Kirkus Reviews

"Readers now can savor NEMESIS. . . . Nesbo's storytelling abilities are incomparable. NEMESIS is crime novel as art form and great entertainment."--USA Today

"Nesbo offers up another top-notch mystery thriller, thickly layered, perfectly plotted, and briskly paced to keep readers hooked. With ties to events in The Redbreast, this is an excellent sequel. . . . Recommended for all fiction collections and essential for Scandinavian crime lovers."--Library Journal

"A fine novel. . . . THE REDBREAST certainly ranks with the best of current American crime fiction."--Washington Post Book World

"Jo Nesb? is my new favorite thriller writer and Harry Hole my new hero."--Michael Connelly

"Nesb? has a knack for Euro noir."--Entertainment Weekly

"Jo Nesbo has a credibly scary line on the power of corruption, and his complex plot culminates in a nail-biting episode with overtones of The Day of the Jackal."--The Independent

"Readers new to this whitehot series will be impressed by Nesb?'s generous plotting and his insight into dark places in the human soul."--Kirkus
