Mellow. Harry Hole is the kind of fictional character that I enjoy more thoroughly with each new installment. Jo Nesbo’s latest novel featuring this complex detective is titled The Redeemer. For me, Harry came across as more mellow in this novel that he did in earlier ones. In some ways, that increased my interest in the character. The major appeal for Nesbo’s novels goes beyond the fine character development: the thrilling plots provide great entertainment. This novel’s plot kept my interest from beginning to end, and I read this novel swiftly. Readers who like well-written detective fiction should consider reading this one.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
