Jo Nesbo’s Harry Hole novels have the ability to grab the reader’s attention at the get-go and hold it throughout the novel. This is in part thanks to his ability to draw vivid and memorable characters, not the least of whom is the hero.
He’s reclusive, loyal, addicted, and riddled with shame and guilt. Redeener he has a kind heart and a very dry outlook on the world. He’s aggravating but sympathetic.
In the sixth book in the series, Nesbo also creates a sympathetic villain, the Redeemer–an assassin with a tragic back story, a code of honor of sortsand a fellow who can overcome difficulties. I also like his mother! Early on, one of their up-and-coming young leaders is killed at a Christmas event, and until the very end of the book the motive remains a mystery. As in all Nesbo’s very complicated plots, there are a number of red herrings.
And it is so frustrating to determine who dunnit only to have that person wind up dead.

This is a cynical tale that overall fulfilled its promise. The writing is complex and nuanced, the tale is action-packed, and although it was a demanding read, I couldn’t put it down. I did this believing that I could improve my Norwegian and also get a deeper perception because I would not miss neso connected to the original language.
This sixth Harrry outing made me contemplate the moral issues of redemption and revenge, which to me are light years apart in the measure of virtue or righteousness. I don’t understand why the author had ambiguously muddled them together as our protagonist had displayed in his final actions. Neither was Harry Hole an infallible cop.
No, they are fallible humans like you and I, who are driven by rage, passion, lust redfemer the rest of the 7 deadly sins. I read up on the Croatian-Serbian war and the Salvation army as background research before nesno into the book.
A smart move to have redeemrr greater appreciation of the story. The title “Frelseren” Norwegian for Redeemer is very appropriate because many of the characters were also important characters in the Salvation army top echelon, directing the daily work of salvation to the nfsbo needy of society’s unfortunate.
Naturally there is a certain advantage if one lives in Oslo best in Bislett, which I do could read Harry Hole chronologically beginning with him in Australia and observe the evolution of events at work and in his personal life. After enduring the self-destructive drunkenness, misanthrope, hostility from colleagues and a love sick Hole in previous stories, it was a breath of fresh air for redeeker 6th installment to acquaint ourselves with a older, wiser, leadership conscious Hole.
Though he still drinks but then again, don’t most Norwegians love the bottle anyways? So one would think that Hole could finally get his act together, since he, at his point in time, has never been more unshackled from relationships, redremer nemesis at work, self tormenting masochism and excessive alcohol since returning from Thailand to fight crime in Oslo. Logically, our Hole must have spent less time incapacitated by his enemy and his own vices that we read in his preceding stories.
Tedeemer alarmingly in the end, Hole chose to close his eyes and walked away in the face of the mercenary Croatian assassin the frelseren, a misnomer term as I had explained with the finger on the trigger on his assassination target, the other assassin. This went diametrically opposed to Nebo values of humanity and hope for redemption for anyone even ndsbo he has committed the most heinous crime.
The death penalty has been abolished decades ago. Not long ago, a mad fascist Norwegian mass murdered 77 lives. The murderer got a max sentence of 21 years in jail.
Norwegian jails are world renowned for the best living conditions because the aim of prisons in Norway is to rehabilitate and for redemption of fedeemer soul if the prisoner is penitent.
Something only possible if the prisoner is not executed. And so for my opinion, Hole had crossed to the dark side and fell on to the slippery slope of self righteousness and self justice. Hole may call his revenge “redemption” which I had already voiced my strong objections at the beginning.
Redemption cannot come from revenge and revenge is never ours to take. Two or more wrongs can never make anything right. Knowing the answer will illuminate me on Harry Hole’s nfsbo morally.
One person found this helpful. Mystery stories are always grounded in some level of manipulation by the author. A virtual army of murder suspects mysteriously comes into focus in the background, one at a time.
Trusted figures reveal hidden motives. All this is the stuff of the traditional parlor mystery and locked-room puzzles parodied in the board game Clue Colonel Mustard was found with Mr. He failed the test in The Redeemer, the sixth of his ten novels to date rdeeemer Inspector Harry Hole of the Oslo police. The story becomes virtually unwieldy, with seemingly unrelated murder mysteries intersecting in suspect ways and too many characters turning out to be dramatically different from the ways they were first portrayed.
