A fantastically gripping thriller from the best-selling author of The Snowman.
Christmas shoppers stop to hear a Salvation Army concert on a crowded Oslo street. A gunshot cuts through the music and the bitter cold: one of the singers falls dead, shot in the head at point-blank range. Harry Hole—the Oslo Police Department’s best investigator and worst civil servant—has little to work with: no suspect, no weapon, and no motive. But Harry’s troubles will multiply. As the search closes in, the killer becomes increasingly desperate, and Harry’s chase takes him to the most forbidden corners of the former Yugoslavia.
Yet it’s when he returns to Oslo that he encounters true darkness: among the homeless junkies and Salvationists, eagerly awaiting a savior to deliver them from misery—whether he brings new life or immediate death.
With its shrewdly vertiginous narrative, acid-etched characters, and white-hot pace, The Redeemer is resounding proof of Jo Nesbø’s standing as one of the best crime writers of our time.

For a Nesbo book, this was an easy read and I really enjoyed it. The snow fell in my den as I read through the scenes. A surprise twist at the end gave Hole a new dimension. loved it!
Good story with the usual twists
It got a bit tedious somewhere in the middle where the story just didn't go anywhere and I was getting a bit annoyed. But nesbo tied it all together in the end... Glad he isn't losing steam!!
