    1. Dear Harry Hole Last time I heard from you, you lost the woman you loved, her son who called you Dad and your middle finger You quit Crime Squad for good, sulking from the trauma and devastation in your life caused chasing down that twisted Snowman You moved to Hong Kong where you graduated at the top of your class from Jim Beam to heroin No serial killer hunts for you Just smack, glass noodles and gambling on losing horses The good life for someone who has given up on life Then this woman Kaja [...]

    2. Nesb s Harry Hole books should come with at least two warnings on them Never start to read one if you need a full night of sleep you will be up until way too late because the story is just too addictive , and never start to read one if you don t have at least one Harry Hole, ideally in chronological order lined up waiting for you next, since you ll probably be going on Harry Hole binge.This one would work great outside the series too, but it is much enjoyable if you read the HH books in order. [...]

    3. Number 8 in the Harry Hole series and maybe the best out of all of them so far Harry is by now a confirmed alcoholic and spends a lot of his time in drunken binges but when a new serial killer comes on the scene he manages to stay sober long enough to solve the case Despite his failings Harry is still such a likeable character and always smart enough to win out over criminals and bent police officers Possibly his success is due to the fact that he really really does not care what happens to him [...]

    4. I recently caught the trailer for the upcoming film adaptation of Jo Nesbo s The Snowman, and realized I hadn t reviewed the Nesbo book I finished a couple of months ago, the one that comes right after The Snowman in the Harry Hole series.Perhaps I didn t want to dredge up the memory of The Leopard Its imagery continues to haunt me Seriously, some of the graphic violence in this book wouldn t be out of place in the film genre that s known as torture porn for horror film novices see the Saw or Ho [...]

    5. The violence in The Leopard is gruesome and unrelenting took me a while to craft a review without the phrase sick fuck in it oops For some, I know, it will be too much It came close for me, but my lack of an ability to visualize allowed me to power through.That said, the violence works well within the story Detective Harry Hole is back on the case of another serial killer and lets face it, things have to get pretty damn dicey to shake up Harry and he is well and truly shook.This thriller is well [...]

    6. I am a biased fan, so my passion for this series among the steam of Nordic Noir hits has to be considered in that context The figure of tough and sensitive Harry Hole, usually detective with the Olso major crimes squad, is up there in my pantheon of fictional crime fighters, which includes near the heavens Harry Bosch, Dave Robicheaux, Elvis Cole, Virgil Flowers, Jack Reacher, Walt Longmire, and Spenser At curtain rise, Harry is basically living under a rock in Hong Kong The threats and damages [...]

    7. At the end of the seventh book in this series, The Snowman, Inspector Harry Hole was an emotional wreck The case had taken a very heavy toll on him personally and his reaction to it all was to quit the Oslo police force and run away to Hong Kong where he lost himself in the city s notorious opium dens But now a new serial killer may be stalking victims back in Norway and Harry is the most experienced policeman in the country in dealing with such criminals.Harry s boss sends Kaja Solness, an attr [...]

    8. I m not a fan of crime fiction, unless it was written by Raymond Chandler, but that s not crime fiction that s noir literature However, I was enticed by and enjoyed the Stieg Larsson books last summer, despite how poorly they were edited and awful the English translations were The narratives were compelling, and I couldn t put them down.I decided to pick up the latest book by Jo Nesbo billed as the Norwegian Stieg Larsson because I was curious about this new trend of explicitly gruesome murder m [...]

    9. There are some books that aren t dreadful but just aren t worth finishing All the same, I cannot remember the last time I read 311 pages of a book only to decide I couldn t be bothered to read the rest After several days of being really confused by my overwhelming apathy and agonizing over what to do, I finally gave myself permission to give up.Why couldn t I summon up the will to read For one thing, this is not even half as good a book as The Snowman nor was its killer remotely as frightening a [...]

    10. After catching the serial killer known as the Snowman Harry Hole quit the Crime Squad and lit out for Hong Kong where he could indulge in drinking, gambling and heroin in an attempt to forget about Rakel But now there has been a series of inexplicably linked deaths and Crime Squad want Harry back in Oslo and his ex colleague Kaja Solness is sent to track him down.I think this might be my favourite Jo Nesbo to date just ahead of The Snowman The plot is complex and made so by the tug of war going [...]

    11. 4,5 S n o dei as cinco porque achei que o final foi um pouco confuso Penso que ganhava mais se tivesse terminado o livro umas p ginas antes, pois j n o ficaria com a sensa o de que andou a arrastar a hist ria no final.Ainda assim, um livro muito empolgante, como sempre, daquele que , atualmente, o meu escritor n rdico favorito Sou completamente f de Jo Nesbo

    12. Jo Nesbo is simply brilliant The Leopard is another masterful instalment in the very excellent Harry Hole series.But poor Harry, he is a mess His last case The Snowman previous book really took it out of him and his girlfriend, Rakel, and her son, Oleg, have left Sweden to put the ordeal behind them Harry has holed up yes I know in Hong Kong of all places to indulge in drink, drugs and gambling A new officer in the Crime Squad, Maja Solness, is sent to Hong Kong to bring him back because his exp [...]

    13. It is just a crying shame that this novel is not going to be available in the U.S right away, because really, American readers of Jo Nesb are missing out on one of the very best books in the entire series I couldn t even purchase a copy from Book Depository directly, so I had to take the roundabout alternative and purchase from BD through It s a bit expensive, but well worth it Trust me, after finishing The Snowman, you are going to want to read this book as quickly as possible In fact, in this [...]

    14. This is the third Jo Nesbo book I ve read and I must say that Jo Nesb deserves all the hype he gets Traumatized by the snowman case Harry flees to Thailand to drown into his inner demons until his colleagues drag him back to Norway to help with a new case and inform him that his father is sick The new serial killer is much different than the snowman, different motives, different killing style and personality which I appreciated and I thought was believable this story could actually happen somewh [...]

    15. So the advertising does work One finds it almost impossible to commute around London these days without seeing adverts for Jo Nesbo s various thrillers They give the impression that every sentient being on the planet is currently gripped by this man s books and slavering for the next one More than eating or breathing oxygen, reading Norwegian crime novels is the done thing for the human race right now As such, because I appear to be of a sucker for this kind of thing than I previously realised, [...]

    16. This was my least favorite Jo Nesbo book I would love to blame it on the fact that I started it while riding home from Pgh or that it took me over 10 days to finish a VERY long time for me to finish a 500 page book However, I think it s because there were way too many characters, too many plot twists, and Harry just lost a little something for me He was borderline pathetic Many times throughout the story I wanted to slap him, at best I just don t know I do know that if this was my first Harry Ho [...]

    17. I have a thing about Scandinavia and Scandinavian crime thrillers Having enjoyed Wallander on TV, particularly Krister Henriksson s portrayal, I want to read all of Henning Mankel s series The Danish TV series The Killing is also very good Hence when my book group chose Jo Nesbo s The Leopard I was just a bit excited Little did I know that The Leopard is the sixth book in the series and having not read any of the others, I feel I m doing this back to front On opening the book I was bitten A big [...]

    18. I didn t enjoy this book as much as the ones before it in the series It s been less than a month since I read it and I had to track down a synopsis to refresh my memory so I could write this piece of crap review It was a template plot with generic characters added and it didn t have the charm the other books before it had Also, the cheesy far fetched parts of the story were a bit too much for me this time and I am kind of getting tired of the quirky girl love interest character that is brought i [...]

    19. it starts slowly around middle I was enjoying some nice plot twist, but after that it went shockingly bad things I did not enjoy made up torture devices are ok, but presenting them as a real historical artefact stinks Norwegian police routinely travel to civil war plagued African countries to investigate on a whim, without any official liason, contact, legal backup, guns, preparation or even a fucking medical check.Nesbo is trying too hard and puts too many locations rwanda, hong kong, germany, [...]

    20. One of my favorite crime busters, Harry Hole,in another well written Nordic Crime Novel I love the writing, love the character, but I almost want to give this one 3 stars because the murders are so hideously conceived Does Nesbo think the crimes have to get and horrible to sell books The Snowman s MO was bad but this one is worse When I read Headhunters will it be even worse

    21. Because I am swamped with finishing my next Shannara book for 2014 and reading the galley proofs for Witch Wraith, I have not read a whole slew of fantasy books, both adult and young adult, that I am anxious to get to Also, I am holding off on Shawn until I can get a running start Just kidding I will review his book THE DARK THORN next month or the one after So let me recommend Jo Nesbo to you Any of his books are wonderful, but I just finished The Leopard probably 8 or so in his series , so I w [...]

    22. This book was not an easy read It s dark, graphic, and shows the dark dregs of society and hypocrisy Harry Hole is far from a good person, but he actually feels real Almost every character feels like a real person Also the unexpected twists and turns Every time I thought the plot was going to go somewhere it either didn t or it twisted it to an unexpected degree There were some points where I even went wow It s been a long time since I enjoyed a thriller serial killer novel without seeing it as [...]

    23. The mountain resort area of Ustaoset Os livros do escritor noruegu s Jo Nesbo n 1960 nunca me desiludem O Leopardo o oitavo livro da s rie Harry Hole , no meu caso apenas o sexto, um enredo que se inicia ap s os acontecimentos traum ticos de O Boneco de Neve , com Harry Hole a ser resgatado pela atraente detective Kaja Solness do seu auto ex lio em Hong Kong No regresso Noruega justificado pela grave doen a do seu pai Olav, um novo serial killer aterroriza a lind ssima cidade de Oslo, acabando H [...]
