Publisher's Summary

Harry Hole, drunkard, loner and brilliant detective is reassigned to surveillance after a high profile mistake. He’s bored by his new job until a report of a rare and unusual gun being fired sparks his interest because of its possible links to Neo Nazi activity. Then a former soldier is found with his throat cut. Next Harry’s former partner is murdered. Why had she been trying to reach Harry on the night her head was smashed in? The investigation leads Harry to suspect that the crimes have their roots in the battlefields of Eastern Front during WWII. In a quest that takes him to South Africa and Vienna, Harry finds himself perpetually one step behind the killer. He will be both winner and loser by the novel's nail-biting conclusion.

The Redbreast. He’s your judge, jury and executioner…And he must be stopped.

    "Excellent"

    I like the way that Jo Nesbo writes, though I do find his stories a trifle complex, meaning I often have to rewind a little if I am multi tasking. The characters are good and the book is well written and thought provoking.
    I did find one thing a bit odd and unfinished though - cannot give too much detail as that would spoil it, but one person was shown to have criminal actions - but was not brought to book. Maybe left for another in the series?

    Worth reading overall

    "Complicated"

    I really struggled to follow the plot in this Nesbo novel. It may have been because I couldn't visualise the character names and thus lost track of who was who. I did however find aspects gripping but needed to clear up the character names.

    "Masterpiece"
    Would you listen to The Redbreast: A Harry Hole Thriller, Book 3 again? Why?

    I would listen to this book again despite it being a thriller/detective story. The war background story was so well written that it made me a Nesbø fan.


    What other book might you compare The Redbreast: A Harry Hole Thriller, Book 3 to, and why?

    I like Jussi Adler Olsen's Q series and I think the first of the series, Mercy, has a lot of similar things than The Redbreast although the stories are nothing alike.


    Have you listened to any of Sean Barrett’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    I've listened to a few other Jo Nesbø books read by Sean Barrett. The reading is equally good in all of them.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, definitely, it is a book I would have wanted to listed to in one sitting. I didn't but I would have wanted to.


    Any additional comments?

    I've read/listened to the first five Harry Hole books by Jo Nesbø so far and I think it's the best of the them. The Redbreast was such a pleasure to listen to after disappointing #1 and #2 books in Harry Hole series.

    "Another classic Hole book!"

    Probably on a par with Police for complexity, which I like, though I definitely understood what happened a bit more on the second listen. Excellent story telling and excellent narration!

    "Another Nesbo treasure."
    Would you listen to The Redbreast: A Harry Hole Thriller, Book 3 again? Why?

    I've heard it twice already. It'll be heard again and again in due course.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    By the way we spell the above word FAVOURITE here in Britain. It has to be the very flawed Harry of course


    Have you listened to any of Sean Barrett’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    Sean Barrett's voice wraps his rich tones about the text and makes it his story.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Harry wouldn't suit a tag line and would shun anything like a tacky cliche.


    Any additional comments?

    Once you've tried one Harry Hole you should move on another straight away.

    "totally addicted "

    This the 3rd book in the series i have listend too and i am still addicted to both the story and the characters. Sean Barrett is a fanstastic narrator who seems to be able to bring all the characters to life and Jo Nesbos writing makes me laugh throughout the books. I would recommend this and previous 3 books to anyone with a love of crime fiction

    "Fab book, fab narrator, edit issues resolved"
    Any additional comments?

    Having listened to the first two books of the series I bought this one with trepidation due to the comments left by previous reviewers with respect to editing issues, I can happily report that these have now been resolved and I didn't hear anything at all out of place. The narrator is my absolute favourite and this is how I found these books in the first place, but I am now a complete fan of Jo Nesbo and having listened to the first three books one after the other I will be getting my way through the whole series in the coming months!
