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.

Once again that self destructive, self effacing, but adept cop, Harry Hole, engages in investigating a crime which has implications to many of the powerful folks in Norway. I like his humanity but have no patience with his ambivalence with drink and women. I miss Oleg and Rakel and can't figure out why Harry couldn't work harder to keep them in his life as he truly loved Oleg at least. I wish the relationship with Moller had more dimension. I learned more about the Salvation Army than I knew before. I also learned that, if I ever visit Oslo, it will be in the summer. Overall Mr Nesbo is wonderful in his descriptions of character, plot, and what things make people do what they do. This is a very good read even though the title pushes the issue somewhat.

The author makes Scandinavia seem like a very depressed place to be. Harry keeps on being himself, but you do wish he'd cheer up a bit.
