    1. The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly.The Good.Jo Nesbo s surly and reclusive Norwegian detective Harry Hole pronounced Hooleh is back in 2002 s Nemesis Nesbo established Hole in The Bat and Cockroaches and then produced a phenomenal novel with his 2000 novel The Redbreast one the genre s best, akin to Stieg Larsson in narrative quality Hole is engaged to investigate a bank robbery that went wrong, resulting in the death of a bank teller A wider network of evil is uncovered and Hole is heavily tasked [...]

    2. Upon completing this book, I rated it three stars After a month s time and much thought, I cannot say that I really liked it all that much I ve decided to drop my rating to two stars, and here s why I was nowhere near as impressed with Nemesis as I was Harry Hole s previous outing, The Redbreast This one was nothing than your average detective bank heist story The emotional impact of the tale did not match the previous installment either But I think I mostly didn t care for this story because I [...]

    3. Sometimes I feel as though I m genetically hardwired to be a contrarian Not because I actually like being different than everyone else or going against popular opinion, nor do I actually want to stand on the mountaintop and scream All you fuckers are wrong Because let s face it, it s easy to follow everyone else, to march in line and in step, even if it sometimes means you re headed for a cliff or the occasional mountain lion Nor do I get some sort of sick, demented pleasure from bashing other a [...]

    4. Yet another series I keep pushing through, hoping it will get better because I have heard so many good things This one fell completely flat The story was disjointed I didn t understand the relationships between the characters Most of the time I had no idea what was going on or why I understood the resolution, but I don t think I cared any I spent the last 200 pages or so on autopilot feeling like it ended about 20 times but at the same time feeling like it was never going to end I will probably [...]

    5. This is a big, thick chunky book but I raced through it On the cover Jo Nesb is likened to Stieg Larsson but he is nothing like Nesb wastes not a single word in description or lengthy explanation He just tells a great story with plenty of action and lots of great police work I really enjoy Harry Hole as a character He may be flawed but he must be nice because all the best people like him and the bad ones do not And although he makes plenty of mistakes he has to otherwise there would not be a sto [...]

    6. Inspector Harry Hole of the Oslo police is an alcoholic who s trying to stay on the wagon That s hard for the detective, who tends to follow his own rules and infuriate his bosses In this book Harry gets involved with two investigations a bank heist that left a woman employee dead and the alleged suicide of a young woman To investigate the bank robbery Harry and his partner Beate L nn who can remember every face she s ever seen study CCTV tapes of the holdup These provide clues that lead to a co [...]

    7. This is a pretty good read, but messy Too much going on I am currently on the lookout for a mystery that doesn t end three times before it actually ends Allow me to give away the entire book It was that guy who killed the apparent suicide victim No, it was that guy No, actually she killed herself after all What about the bank robber That guy No, that guy s brother No, it s a copycat the first bank robbery was actually a murder Are we done yet Let s let the bad guy threaten the nice lady detectiv [...]

    8. There really should be a health warning or spoiler alert printed on the cover of this book It is the third of Jo Nesb s Harry Hole series of detective novels to be translated into English The first was The Devil s Star, but actually The Devil s Star turns out to be the third in the series and very much the sequel to Nemesis For some reason, the novels have been translated and published in the UK out of sequence I guess the reason is they published the best one first to test the water Unlike most [...]

    9. Watching David Suchet s Hercule Poirot tv series is like comfort food for me I ve watched the lot of them repeatedly my family would say ad nauseum Poirot follows his tried and tested method in most of the series books, he searches, he finds, he ponders and keeps his card close to his chest In the meantime I enjoy myself feeling part of the story as I follow him from here to there and discover this and that I get most of the thrill during this part of the story, not the part where he gathers eve [...]

    10. Nemesis is a complex psychological thriller that weaves together the strands of two different investigations that prove to be interrelated When a teller is shot and killed in a dramatic bank robbery, Oslo homicide detective Harry Hole is assigned to the team investigating the crime But Harry, a recovering alcoholic with a ton of other issues, does not work well with others and soon finds himself investigating apart from the larger team, assisted only by a young detective and video analyst, Beate [...]

    11. My first foray into Scandinavia crime noir, which seems in the last 10 years to have come out of nowhere to take the world by storm, TV as well Nemesis is a decent read, not as dark as The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, but not as good either In Harry Hole there is a detective you believe in, he has flaws like everybody else, there are moments of tension, and a good developing plot story, where footage of a bank robbery has been looked at hundreds of times and the police searched for finger prints [...]

    12. I don t know how how to describe what I feel at the end of the book I know exactly what I felt at the beginning of Nemesis and through three quarters of the plot I thought, it was one of the best mystery books I ever read And thene final spurt towards the finishing lined initial sensations about my reading orgasm went rapidly downwards And, believe or not, I finished it, if not confused, but conflicted than I d like to.The Book 4 in the series is VERY VERY complex Many many things happen here I [...]

    13. Harry makes a new friend and gets one step closer to solving the crime that matters most to him.I really enjoyed the mystery on this one, how it split off into multiple different little mysteries and then how they all came back together in the end I was actually quite clueless until the very last moment regarding the whodunit portion of the story I thought I had it all sorted out but was pleasantly surprised when I realized I was wrong GASP Yes, I totally did just admit to being wrong about some [...]

    14. Harry Hole returns in the fourth book in the series by Jo Nesb although only the second, translated ably, by Don Bartlett and follows on from Redbreast Some time has passed between the two novels, although it s not entirely clear how much not enough to change the other people around him too much or for him to have ruined his relationship with Rakel surely only a matter of time or to have forgotten the murder of his partner, Ellen, but enough for there to be a new girl on the force Beate L nn an [...]

    16. Nesbo, Jo NEMESIS 2002 U.S 2008 Nesbo is an international best selling author from Norway His earlier book, The Redbreast, was his initial claim to fame Although not well known to American readers, he has picked up a solid cadre of fans who will swell his audience through word of mouth This novel takes his detective hero, Hole, of the murder squad, into the world of the gypsies It all starts out with a bank robbery, where the robber, later termed the Expediter, holds a gun to one of the female [...]

    17. One of The Sites Harry Is Sure To Visit At Least Once Per Novel Vigeland Park Oslo, NorwayThis is actually the second in the series and I have to say I found it better overall than a couple of his later ones It is interesting going backwards and read of the events alluded to in Harry s future Witnessing the beginning of his relationship with Rakel, probing the roots of the animosity between him and certain co workers, indeed, the department in general Yes, Harry gets his man But at what cost Pri [...]

    18. I m dedicating the reading of this book to my friend Harry RoolartHarry, when he was a bit active, pestered me until I read the first couple of books in the HH series After that I was hooked by Harry Hole He is in my top three characters who I really love and enjoy reading This is a character from authors who are still alive and writing i.e Michael Connelley So thanks, Harry And remember that Harry is my go to person for all things Scandinavian He can tell you how to pronounce Hole and tell you [...]

    19. Jo Nesbo keeps getting better and better This book is the fourth in the Harry Hole series and the second in what is called The Oslo Trilogy The story is complex and multi layered It s almost breathtaking when all the pieces fall into place at the end.It s hard to write too much without giving away spoilers Let me just say that I think all hell is going to break loose in the next book in the series.

    21. Oh, Harry Hole How do I love thee Let me count the ways You are the most Anti Hero I ve read, but I would totally date you

    22. There are mysteries, there are thrillers and then there is the best of both worlds called Jo Nesbo books I am officially a fan after Nemesis Harry Hole is part of a joint investigation with Robbery department of a bank robbery gone wrong When the escalations in robberies happen with daring savagery, Hole starts a parallel investigation with Boete wonderkid and an extremely well connected gypsy ex robber doing time playing mind games That is just the beginning He gets a call from a ex girlfriend [...]
