Description

We opened with Harry in southern California, getting away from it all - but mainly getting away from the memory of Rakel's death in the last novel. Hole is the anti-hero and he is still a very interesting and complex human being and his story is still fascinating, playing his own music instead of walking with masses. When another classmate disappears, Richard must find a way to prove his innocence--and preserve his sanity--as he grapples with the dark magic that is possessing Ballantyne and pursuing his destruction.

Part rock star, part melancholic philosopher, he is the coolest, smartest, most complex, least orthodox crime fighter around . Harry will need to bring together a misfit team of former operatives in Oslo to do what he can’t do alone: stop an unstoppable killer. Almost a decade ago, Jo revealed sitting at his imported desk made writing feel like work and he preferred to pen his stories in hotel lobbies or airport lounges.

Add in the police who are at a loss as to who may be behind the disappearance and subsequent murder of two young women, and reporters who are locked in a seeming battle to get the scoop on this most twisted of cases, and the scene is set for a truly attention grabbing case. But it wasn’t until 2005 that he was finally published in the UK, when the fifth Hole book, The Devil’s Star, was released, just as the popularity of Nordic Noir soared after the success of Stieg Larsson’s The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. There are a number of suspects, people of dubious character and varying degree of enthusiasm and, dare I say, obsession, that we meet over the course of the book, the author doing a grand job of deflecting suspicion from the obvious and making out attention flit from one to the other at a great pace of knots.

The camaraderie of this team is one of the most pleasing aspects of the book – a counter to Harry’s angst, grief and battle with alcoholism. Katrine Bratt wants to bring in the country’s foremost serial killings expert, but the idea of collaborating with Harry Hole is out of the question for the chiefs of police.This book is, at times, a touch grim, the truth behind what happens and why a little … how should I put this? Killing Moon is the thirteenth and latest book in Nesbo's Norwegian crime thriller series, starring the erstwhile Harry Hole.

Karen is an outcast as well and instead of laughing at Richard's story, she encourages him to pursue it, and to hunt down the clues the police refuse to investigate. There are crime novels in which the protagonist is as fascinating as the plot so that no matter how mundane the crime may be, we want to spend our time with those bleakly funny, insatiably curious problem-solvers. He’ll need to bring together a misfit team of former operatives to accomplish what he can’t do alone: stop an unstoppable killer. This section is mind-blowing, similar to what I have come to expect from the brilliant mind of Catriona Ward. Aside: this storyline was stupid and unnecessary, and it made zero impact on the larger story except to create an otherwise arbitrary deadline.

I would be more worried if there was an absence of violence against women in fiction because it’s a problem in real life…Harry Hole borrows a lot from the tradition of the hard-boiled detective novel, and with that comes certain traditions. Needless to say, I can appreciate the thought that Nesbø put into the construction of this story, and I do feel like it is a bit of a clever take on some classic themes.

Meanwhile, back home in Oslo, two deaths of young women have the town turned upside down, particularly when it comes out that one is missing her brain and the other her entire head. Ellis-Brown said: “ The Night House is a spine-chilling, suspenseful tale full of heart and humanity, and Jo’s passion for classic horror is evident on every page. I would hate to know that I dissuaded a reader from picking up a book just because I didn’t like it. There are some yukky, gruesome incidents in places with a moody, spooky, eerie, secretive, sinister and evil tone which induces fear. The pacing is fast with a few parts that slow down to allow the reader to catch up on Richard’s revelations.Tre år med sidesprang til andre krimforfattere i håp om å finne noe i nærheten av Jo Nesbøs kaliber. He's been accused of disappearing two women, and he wants to hire Harry to investigate and prove his innocence. If you’re expecting a crime Harry Hole type novel then think again as one of my favourite authors takes us in a different direction here. Whilst most violence is kept off the page, the intent behind what occurs is quite obvious and by the time we are brought right up to speed with what is happening, I was prepared, if still a little green around the gills. Richard Elauved was fourteen years old when he went to live with his aunt and uncle after his parents’ deaths.
