The Devil's Star (Harry Hole, #5) by Jo Nesbø

Into the Wild

Read The Devil's Star (Harry Hole, #5) Online Free - A young woman is murdered in her Oslo flat. One finger has been severed from her left hand, and behind her eyelid is secreted a tiny red diamond in the shape of a five-pointed star - a pentagram, the devil's star.

Detective Harry Hole is assigned to the case with his long-time adversary Tom Waaler and initially wants no part in it. But Harry is already on notice to quit the force and is left with little alternative but to drag himself out of his alcoholic stupor and get to work.

A wave of similar murders is on the horizon. An emerging pattern suggests that Oslo has a serial killer on its hands, and the five-pointed devil's star is key to solving the riddle.

”Harry had felt the gnawing ache for alcohol from the moment he woke up that morning. First as an instinctive physical craving, then as a panic-stricken fear because he had put a distance between himself and his medicine by not taking his hip flask or any money with him to work. Now the ache was...

I enjoyed The Devil’s Star and in general I enjoy Nesbo. However . . . he has this tendency to suddenly kinda stray from the story and go into what feel like stream of consciousness rambles that only kinda make sense in context to the book. In these rambles, he will suddenly get excessively speci...

While a huge chunk of the planet has made Stieg Larrsson the new J.K. Rowling I have been attending a different church, The House of Jo Nesbo. Harry Hole is Nesbo's man. He's a loner, he drinks, he's prickly, he doesn't like authority and cannot successfully sustain a romantic relationship. In o...

This is another excellent, complex thriller from Jo Nesbo, featuring his tormented protagonist, Oslo homicide detective Harry Hole. This story continues a number of developments that were set into motion in the last Hole novel, Nemesis, when someone close to Harry was murdered. Harry knows who th...

The Devil’s Star is a demonstration of a talented writer hitting his stride and making it look easy. Nesbo’s creation of Harry Hole, a brilliant investigator but also an alcoholic and a difficult team member, made him a writer to watch and invited comparisons with his wildly successful fellow Scan...

Excuse me while I put on a helmet and some body armor...see some of my friends here really like this book and this series, and some were apparently waiting to see what I was going to say. Well, I wasn't overly thrilled with it. I mean how can a book about a serial killer leave me so...meah. First...

This book couldn't have ended any better. I was hooting and hollering and cheering my ass off. My wife and I were supposed to finish MINDHUNTER tonight, but I got to reading this and forgot all about that. I don't read Nesbø for the plot. His stories are pretty basic mystery/thriller material, al...

In Oslo, our hero, the very, very human Inspector Harry Hole, is trying to survive his alcoholism one day at a time, or is that one bottle at a time? But self-medicating against regular nightmares about horrific events in his past cannot kill the pain, or lessen his fears. His career is on the sk...

Here's the thing about the recent popularity of Scandinavian writers and if you're a Nordic Thriller aficionado you couldn't care less about the distinction: the novels are depressed, somber, filled with ennui, a lack of humor, with flawed characters if not suffused with a strong tendency towards...
