I really like the books written by Jo Nesbø and I’ve read all the book form the Harry Hole series.
There’s always a very intense atmosphere in Jo Nesbø’s books. There’s also cruel violence and harsh and insensitive people. Harry Hole, the main character, doesn’t care about the rules. He’s got a lot of problems but, I think, he won’t give up without a fight.
I’m hooked on these books. The plot is always fast-paced and very interesting. With every book you can follow, in addition to a good crime story, the life of Harry Hole. His tempestuous relationship with the love of his life, Rakel. His battle with alcoholism. Harry Hole is not polished, he’s rough and hard but still vulnerable. He’s also tough and charismatic.
The newest, Police, was almost as good as the other books. The story was dynamite and I would have wanted to just read and read. But, I must say, Jo Nesbø’s book The Snowman was better.
There’s a lot of books where the main character is a police with personal problems of some kind. To me, Jo Nesbø does it best and he is one of my favorite authors.
