Pequena biografia

His Harry Hole novels include The Redeemer, The Snowman, The Leopard and Phantom, and he is also the author of several stand-alone novels and the Doctor Proctor series of children's books. He is the recipient of numerous awards, including the Glass Key for best Nordic crime novel.



DNF'd at 65%. Full of unlikable characters (not in a fun way) and dated language/ideas. And since the only characters I liked get killed off... Well there's not really a point in continuing. On to other books!

Knife is the 12th installment of Norwegian Jo Nesbø's excellent crime series, set in Oslo, and featuring police detective Harry Hole. Harry's on-off relationship with Rakel, with her son Oleg, and his serious issues with addiction - mostly alcohol but occasionally opium - have punctuated this series since it began. The books paint a picture of a tortured character, always just inches away from downing another bottle of Jim Beam, forever pushing things to the limit so that his relationship with Rakel will end, so he can prove to himself once again that he never deserved to have her. Harry seems incapable of happiness, of steadiness, of walking a straight line in his life. He's a brilliant detective, gifted with a preternatural intuition, and the gift of noticing the tiny details that others miss. However, Harry's career with the Oslo police keeps tanking as his alcoholism and his devil-may-care lack of interest in ethical police work frustrate and enrage his co-workers and his superiors. The tall, craggy detective has very few allies by time this 12th book begins.

One of the people he's alienated, again, is Rakel, who has thrown him out. We don't know why (yet), but readers following Harry's career will know that he's done something unforgiveable yet again. The shock that follows Nesbø's establishment of Harry's current state is that Rakel is dead. Murdered. Stabbed. Harry, of course, is chief suspect. Even Harry's not sure what he did that night as he was in an alcoholic blackout and can't remember anything. What Harry does know is that he's going to establish his guilt or his innocence beyond a doubt, and thus a grim and fascinating story begins.

Nesbø was a good storyteller from the beginning. His first Harry Hole novel, The Bat, was thin, and set in Australia. It was a good book, and it caught my interest because I was very attracted to Harry's character, capable of love and of murder, a man who was neither black nor white, nor grey, but a terrifying mixture of all three. He was a deeply unstable man, but charming, and so I've followed him for many, many years. Nesbø has become an extremely gifted writer, capable of detailed character description, intricate plotting, and able to share Harry's despair-ridden life with his readers. Knife was an excellent book. It was gripping, terribly sad, powered by bleakness, and hopelessness, and fear. It could be read by someone new to the series, but those who have followed Nesbø's series will enjoy it most, this revisit to the darkest sides of Harry's life.

In Oslo, women using the Tinder app are being targeted by a thirsty vampire, or so the crime scenes seem to show. The space between murders is speeding up and drastic steps to catch the killer are being taken by the Oslo crime squad under the direction of Katrine Bratt. One of Katrine's main objectives is to recruit Harry Hole to help out with the investigation.

Harry isn't a policeman anymore. He's quit chasing killers, he's quit drinking, he's married, with a stepson and a teaching job at the Police Academy. His life is stable until he finds he cannot resist the lure of hunting down murderers, and cannot live with himself should his reluctance to return to the all-consuming rush of police work lead to more dead women.

I thought that sober, married Harry would be dull, but there is no boredom in this novel. Fast-paced, frightening, compulsive, the novel pulls you in as surely as drink pulls in Harry. I stayed up way too late at night finishing this novel, and can't wait for the next one. Top marks to Jo Nesbo, still my favourite in the world of Scandinavian crime.

Ooof. I'm exhausted. The length of this novel - more than 700 pages - may have something to do with it. But the impossible pace and number of sub-plots in this very noir indeed detective novel keep the adrenalin buzzing. There are plenty of murders which are the stuff of nightmares, plenty of political (with a small 'p')shenanigans back at Police HQ, and a sleuth, Harry Hole, who's the stuff of nightmares too: alcoholic, drug-addict, anti-authority. It was a can't-put-it-down read, but at the same time, I'm in no hurry to read any more Harry Hole sagas: I can't stand the pace. My next read may be something soothing, an everyday story of countryfolk… (mais)
