"An elegant and complex thriller....Harrowingly beautiful."
--New York Times Book Review
"A hugely impressive achievement--ambitious in scope, and skilled in execution."
--Los Angeles Times
"The Redbreast certainly ranks with the best of current American crime fiction."
No disrespect meant to Henning Mankell and Stieg Larsson, but Jo Nesb#65533;, the New York Times bestselling author of The Snowman, is the most exciting Scandinavian thriller writer in the crime fiction business. The Redbreast is a fabulous introduction to Nesb#65533;'s tough-as-nails series protagonist, Oslo police detective Harry Hole. A brilliant and epic novel, breathtaking in its scope and design--winner of The Glass Key for best Nordic crime novel and selected as the best Norwegian crime novel ever written by members of Norway's book clubs--The Redbreast is a chilling tale of murder and betrayal that ranges from the battlefields of World War Two to the streets of modern-day Oslo. Follow Hole as he races to stop a killer and disarm a ticking time-bomb from his nation's shadowy past. Vogue magazine says that "nobody can delve into the dark, twisted mind of a murderer better than a Scandinavian thriller writer"...and nobody does it better than Jo Nesb#65533;! James Patterson fans should also take note.
