Product Description:

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

From one of the most celebrated crime writers in Europe and the award-winning author of The Redbreast comes an epic thriller featuring Police Detective Harry Hole. In the vein of the crime novels of James Patterson and Dennis Lehane, Jo Nesbo's The Devil's Star is an intricately plotted and suspenseful thrill-ride from beginning to end.

Review:

"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] 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

"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

"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

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

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

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

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

"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

"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

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

"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)

"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

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

"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

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

"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

"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)

BRAND NEW, The Devil's Star, Jo Nesbo, 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.
