Publisher's Summary

One freezing night in Oslo Christmas shoppers gather to listen to a Salvation Army street concert. An explosion cuts through the music, and a man in uniform falls to the ground, shot in the head at point-blank range.
Harry Hole and his team have little to work with: no immediate suspect, no weapon and no motive. But when the assassin discovers he has shot the wrong man, Harry Hole’s troubles have only just begun. After some exceptionally shrewd detective work, the team begins to close in on a suspected hit man, monitoring his credit card, false passport and the line to his employer. With no money, only six bullets and no place to stay in the bitter cold, the hit man becomes increasingly desperate. He will stop at nothing to eliminate his target. Moving at a breathless pace, The Redeemer is Jo Nesbo’s most gripping thriller yet.

Brilliant

This was my first Jo Nesbo but it won't be my last. Yes it was slow to start with, and the parallel plot lines with characters carry out the same actions with hardly a pause in the narration during the early stages of the book was somewhat confusing until I discovered what was going on. But once I was into the story it was a fascinating plot, with numerous twists turns and surprises. Rather akin tot he old fashioned 'who dunnit' I think that all the clues are in you story for the reader/listener to work out who did what and to whom! Needless to say I didn't manage to piece together all the clues, Very well narrated with excellent characterisation I thoroughly recommend this book.

Interestingly my wife read the book whilst I listened to it, and I have to admit that it was useful to have the printed version to hand for reference, although perhaps Audible would not wish to hear that! Still it led to some interesting meal time conversations between us over the plot lines.

Very Good

This is the second Jo Nesbo book I have listened to (I started with the Snowman). I really like his style of writing, the storyline is compelling and clever. Harry Hole is an entertaining character, intense, flawed and laugh out loud funny at times too, with the narration by Sean Barrett really bringing him to life.

I can't get enough of Nesbo at the moment, please stock his other titles too if they are available, I am sure they will fly off of your virtual shelves...
