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.

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.

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.

Glad I went ahead...

I thought the reviews of this book were mixed, but I went ahead and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The full outcome of all the twists doesn't come until near the end... but there are definitely some surprises.

Excellent and very entertaining. It doesn't really matter if you don't like the Sally Army...

Would recommend.

My first taste of Nesbo - but not my last!

This was my fist taste of a Jo Nesbo novel.

I bought it on a whim and was very pleased that I did. The story was satisfyingly complex and ended with a couple of twists, one of which I did see coming.

I enjoyed the narration by Sean Barrett which is excellent, he builds the tension well.

I have just bought 'The Bat' and will now start from the beginning of the series.

Book's redeeming quality

I have now read all of the Jo Nesbo Harry Hula series- admitedly not in the right order. As is always the case good narration and lots of twists and turns. One of Harry's characteristics is his alcoholism. By tge time I got to the end of this, my last in the series, I'd got a little bored with the varients on this theme. Overall not bad - a modern day sherlock holmes perhaps?

Super read

Another intricate plot, another set of paradoxes and mysteries for Harry to solve, and another great read. My fifth novel in this series of late, and still as enjoyable as the first. Keep it up Harry (and Jo!).

Couldn't Stop listening from the start to the end!

This was the first J Nesbo audiobook that I've listened to and I was not disappointed!. The narration from Sean Barrett is spot on. Although I didn't expect the story to start with the rape of a fourteen year old girl that takes place at a Salvation Army summer camp in Norway nor the ending of the book, its a rollercoaster of a ride in between.
