I wish Jo Nesbo would write a book a month!

Another Winner for Nesbo and Harry Hole

I have been unable to stop reading this series since I first picked up Nemesis and had to read backward to get them all in order. I went back to Redbreast and have continued forward.
Nesbo is a great crime writer and Harry Hole is a great character. The plots are sinuous and compelling and the characters well drawn, I love this series!
