Publisher's Summary

Captured on closed-circuit television: A man walks into an Oslo bank, puts a gun to a cashier’s head, and tells her to count to 25. When he doesn’t get his money fast enough, he pulls the trigger. The young woman dies—and two million Norwegian kroner disappear without a trace.

After a drunken evening with his former girlfriend, Anna Bethsen, Police Detective Harry Hole wakes up at home with a headache, no cell phone, and no memory of the past 12 hours. That same day, Anna is found shot dead in her bedroom, making Hole a prime suspect in an investigation led by his hated adversary, Tom Waaler.

Meanwhile, the bank robberies continue with unparalleled savagery, sending rogue detective Hole from the streets of Oslo to steaming Brazil in a race to close two cases and clear his name. But Waaler isn’t finished with his longtime nemesis quite yet.

What the Critics Say

"Nesbo manages the unlikely feat of exploring the inner life of his lead character in the thorough and compelling manner one associates with, say, Ruth Rendell, while at the same time juggling multiple, interlocking plot strands as dexterously as David Hewson. No doubt about it: Nesbo belongs on every crime-fiction fan’s A-list." (Booklist)

    "Great Harry Hole story! Narrator isn't bad."

    I almost didn't buy this one due to the consistent bad reviews (really bad) of the narrator. I'm so glad I did, though! The narrator is certainly no Robin Sachs, but then again, Robin passed away, and he was a one of a kind. If you listen to the sample and don't find him irritating, I think you will enjoy the experience.

    "Good but not as gripping as redbreast"

    Story was OK though a few too many bits and pieces so didn't fit together as well as Redbreast. narrator was hard to listen too, especially his accents.

    Story
    "A few too many twists and turns"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    The most frustrating in the series thus far 1. I disliked the narrator 2. the mystery of Ellen's death barely progressed 3. too many twists in who actually was responsible for the murders of the primary story.


    What didn’t you like about Thor Knai’s performance?

    I thought he had less range in his voice than previous narrators.


    Was Nemesis worth the listening time?

    I will know if it was worth the time when I get on to the next book and see what seeds may have been planted that I may have missed in book 4.

    "Great, but why changing the narrator"

    Great story as always by Nesbo, but I would have liked to have Robin Sachs or John Lee as a Narrator ... as in the former books

    "Mysteries upon mysteries"

    Great Harry Hole adventure. I had a bit of a hard time keeping track of all the characters but enjoyed listening to the quiet parts as well as the parts that put you on edge, fearing what will happen next. Definitely will be working my way through the rest of the series.

    "A Great Thriller-Narration Starts Slow But Improve"

    A great mystery with many plot shifts and a surprise ending to the case. The narrator starts boring but gets better about halfway through. He is not as good as the previous narrator who did the first books.

    "Always interesting! Keeps you guessing!"

    Met my expectations. Narrator did a great job. Sometimes hard to keep up with the names because they are from another country.

    "I'm Addicted to the Harry Hole Series"

    I almost didn't get this audio because of the negative reviews of the narrator. Yes, he is no Sean Barrett, but he wasn't awful. It took a bit to get used to him, but he was fine. This book was almost a bit too convoluted, but just a bit. I find with this series, it helps to also have the digital ebook. There are many characters, and if I forget one, it is easy to highlight and do a search in an ebook. Plus, sometimes I just like to go back over and read certain parts.

    "The author writes great books; however, ...."

    This was a very poor performance by the reader. I have enjoyed all of Jo Nesbø's books that were read by others. I stopped listening after about 5 min.
