This is the third of Nesboe's books that I have read, and--by chance--I read them in perfect sequence. They are well written and wonderfully translated.
Harry Hole is a real person in a very real setting. Every
detail adds to the mood of these exciting crime stories.
These are probably the best murder mysteries/police procedures I have ever read.
(I wish the translator had translated the term "gate" to street or road or whatever. Unfortunately in English we read that Harry walked up Karl Johan's Gate or down Sofia's Gate--that must be confusing to the one not familiar with Oslo.)
