Publisher's Summary

One freezing night in Oslo Christmas shoppers gather to listen to a Salvation Army street concert. An explosion cuts through the music, and a man in uniform falls to the ground, shot in the head at point-blank range.

Harry Hole and his team have little to work with: no immediate suspect, no weapon and no motive. But when the assassin discovers he has shot the wrong man, Harry Hole’s troubles have only just begun. After some exceptionally shrewd detective work, the team begins to close in on a suspected hit man, monitoring his credit card, false passport and the line to his employer. With no money, only six bullets and no place to stay in the bitter cold, the hit man becomes increasingly desperate. He will stop at nothing to eliminate his target. Moving at a breathless pace, The Redeemer is Jo Nesbo’s most gripping thriller yet.

    "Satisfying, thrilling read"
    Where does The Redeemer rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is my first review


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Redeemer?

    Revelation of complex plot


    Any additional comments?

    First book I have listened to by a Norwegian writer. Wonderful complex plot. Builds up layer by layer. Good characterisation and exploration of human motive. This book is for the intelligent reader, not for dull thrill seekers. Don't let the reference to the Salavation Army put you off. It's what makes this book such a good read.

    "Another great HH story with his demons."

    I can't miss any in this series and each story is compelling. Scandi stories at their best.

    Story
    "The Harry Hole Joe Nesbo series"

    I so like Harry as a character an ex drunk getting over a failed marriage but although he's cleave with his insight he's not rewarded by his peers who see him as a threat or as a drunk.

    Bearing with the author is difficult at times he keeps forgetting how to open sequences by not knowing who is talking with who for a while and chapters make no sense,flipping from one line in the story to another within a chapter and there are 175 chapters. Needs to learn so lessons from customer feedback.

    This time harry is tracking a hit man but who he works for and why is the story's plot.

    "Probably the best Harry Hole story"

    I've read/listened to many of the Harry Hole series and this stands out as the best story for me, slightly above The Snowman and Leopard.

    Story
    "High standards with Harry Holle"

    Nesbo is keeping high standards in my fourth (and sixth in a series) novel starring Oslo Inspector Harry Hole, investigating murder of Salvation Army officer.

    Realistic and grim, as we are used to for Scandinavian writers, with no black &white characters, and with main hero being an alcoholic - Nesbo manages to give us a main story, interwoven with few minor plots. It is almost a perfect crime novel, however somewhere in the middle I had a feeling he was trying to unnecessary make it longer. Nevertheless, despite his shortcomings (or maybe because of them) Harry stays one of the best and coolest characters in crime novels.

    Unlike first three, which I read, I listened to this one from Audible, and voice of Sean Barrett added extra dimension to Hole ;)

    "Keeps you guessing until the end"

    I love the way Jo Nesbo takes us to different worlds. This time it is to the world of the refugee and the displaced. He does it all with such a fine touch.

    "Revenge"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Redeemer: A Harry Hole Thriller, Book 6 to be better than the print version?

    I enjoy the audio version because I can do other things as well as listen to the stories.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Silly question the lovely Harry Hole


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    When Harry corners the assassin.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When his partner is killed


    Any additional comments?

    It's a bit long winded and not as good as the other books but worth sticking with.
