    The Thirst

    As usual Harry Hole takes an unorthodox path to solve the crimes in this novel. There are so many twists and turns that the reader doesn't have a clue as to whom the perp is and why he does what he does. A very good read.

    Superbly plotted and mesmerising characters!

    Famous Oslo detective Harry Hole, retired from the police force, is now a lecturer at the Police College, and he is still edgy. When a seemingly nightmare from the past resurfaces, Harry is asked to rejoin the force to help catch the killer, the one who once escaped Harry’s vigilance, and Harry has never been more determined to catch a murderer, especially this once who is laughing at Harry and has been haunting his dreams for four years. I could kick myself for not having any of Jo Nesbø’s books before! THE THIRST is exactly what I look for in a murder mystery/police procedural. The characters are so well defined that I never felt I had missed anything by not having read the previous books – but I will remedy that overlook as soon as I can! And what a fabulous of cast of characters they are, where no one is perfect and defy all sorts of stereotypes. I must say that one thing that had kept me from reading this series was that Harry Hole is defined as “hard-boiled”, and as I’m very particular about the writing style, that’s often a sore point with me, but Mr. Nesbø is a very fine writer, and the translation does him justice as well. When I read murder mysteries, I usually am very eager to see the investigation progress, in THE THIRST, there is quite a bit on the characters’ personal lives, the interactions within the police department, and the investigation advances at what must be a realistic pace, and yet I didn’t mind one bit. Jo Nesbø possesses such a knack at creating fascinating characters, I was as interested in what was happening in their personal lives as I was in the investigation itself. I felt involved in everyone’s life, and I think it made it better, but then again, it takes a special kind of writer to do that, and Jo Nesbø is that sort of writer. I don’t think I have ever read a murder mystery of any sort whose characters captivated me as much. I was unfortunately unable to read THE THIRST in one sitting, and every time I had to stop reading – life has a nasty habit of interrupting the best books – I couldn’t get wait to go back and read. I would suggest to readers that they try to read the second half uninterrupted, because I don’t know how I would have been able to; it is that exciting. I wonder if there will be a new lead detective in Jo Nesbø’s next book… THE THIRST is the very definition of a gripping, mesmerising, captivating read filled with unexpected plot twists, and the next time Jo Nesbø has a new book out, I will grab it and read it as soon as I can. I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.

    The Thirst

    Another great addition to the Harry Hole series. Interest kept right to the end. Dark, of course, in a way the North American or British crime fiction never is.
