Details: Product Description Inspector Harry Hole pursues an assassin bent on revenge in this installment of Jo Nesbø’s New York Times bestselling series.  Shots ring out at a Salvation Army Christmas concert in Oslo, leaving one of the singers dead in the street. The trail will lead Harry Hole, Oslo’s best investigator and worst civil servant, deep into the darkest corners of the city and, eventually, to Croatia. An assassin forged in the war-torn region has been brought to Oslo to settle an old debt. As the police circle in, the killer becomes increasingly desperate and the danger mounts for Harry and his colleagues.  Review “Fast-and-furious.” — The New York Times Book Review “The pace is relentless. . . . The plot . . . [is] complex without becoming overheated.” — San Antonio Express-News   “Though there’s plenty of twisty plot, it’s Nesbø’s writing—textured, humane, evocative, moody, cinematic—that keeps this thing rolling forward like a toboggan on a steep slope.” — Minneapolis Star Tribune   “ The Redeemer rocks! Jo Nesbø is my new favorite thriller writer and Harry Hole my new hero. This book had my pulse in the red zone from start to finish.” —Michael Connelly “Full of shocking chance and nuance, unforeseen twists and ice-crystal clear views of Oslo in winter.” — The Wall Street Journal “A tour de force. . . . So tightly constructed and compelling that it’s impossible to put the book down.” — The Globe and Mail (Canada)  “A treat. . . .  Even when you’re positive that the mystery is entirely done and dusted, it invariably turns out that the pragmatic Detective Harry Hole has managed to stay three steps ahead, and there’s more to uncover.” — Time Out “Nesbø is no ordinary writer. . . . A complex story, impossible to second-guess, which proves that greed, lust and a desire for revenge lurk within the saintliest of folk.” — The Sunday Telegraph “Rarely does a mystery novel succeed on so many levels, as the intricate plotting explores psychological and theological dimensions that go deeper than standard notions of good and evil. . . . Those with an affinity for the darkest and most literary crime fiction will want to get here as soon as they can.” — Kirkus Reviews (starred review) “The search for redemption is on—redemption through violence. The deeply flawed Hole is his familiar self: difficult and disrespectful, brilliant and intuitive. . . .  Told in powerful prose, [ The Redeemer] never fails to grip.” — Publishers Weekly “No doubt about it: Nesbø belongs on every crime-fiction fan’s A-list.” — Booklist About the Author Jo Nesbø’s books have been translated into forty-seven languages. He is the author of the Harry Hole series, as well as The Son,  Headhunters, and several children’s books. He has received the Glass Key Award for best Nordic crime novel. He is also a musician, songwriter, and economist and lives in Oslo. Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission.

Regular, heavy, nighttime breathing. One was snoring, and that was Auntie Sara, who had been given a mattress beneath the open window.   She closed her eyes and tried to breathe like the others. It was difficult to sleep, especially because everything around her was so new and different. The sounds of the night and the forest beyond the window in Østgård were different. The people she knew from the meetings in the citadel and the summer camps were somehow not the same. She was not the same, either. The face and body she saw in the mirror this summer were new. And her emotions, these strange hot and cold currents that flowed through her when the boys looked at her. Or when one of them in particular looked at her. Robert. He was different this year, too.   She opened her eyes again and stared. She knew God h
