This crime mystery by Norwegian author Jo Nesbo has mass international appeal. The story is taut, fast-moving, complex, and captivating. It is as good a crime novel as you will find anywhere. If I have any critism, it is that the book contained too many characters but otherwise it is an outstanding mystery. Looking forward to reading the next installment of Inspector Harry Hole.

Just couldn't get into it. Tried twice. The 2ndtie was better, but still only got 1/4 of the way thru before giving up. I just couldn't get the story line and got bored.

When I start reading a book by a new author, I usually find it hard at first to hear their voice. I had to work at it for about 3 chapters in this book but once I did I was glad. I really liked this book. I loved the history, the new fresh voice this author has, and I liked the character of Harry Hole. He is reminiscent of my other favorite detectives Harry Bosch and John Rebus.

If you like Ian Rankin and Michael Connelly I strongly recommend Jo Nesbo.

Intricate well written novel. Brings WW II period into contact with year 2000 in a fascinating way. I would heartily recommend this author.

A dark but very interesting and entertaining story. The title character is a great tortured soul and the setting of Oslo and Norway is fascinating. The plot line was also great. Who knew so many Norweigans fought for the Third Reich? Looking forward to others in the series.

Terrific book, one of my all time favorites. I really enjoyed the first Henry Hole (what an unlikely name) book, and this is even better. Wonderful attention to diverse plot elements that all come together in the end.

great new author for us. Complex but still ok to follow.

Jo Nesburr ( Norwegian pronounced with the O-slant ) lifts the bar in mystery/suspense with 'The Redbird'. A flash back to WW2 and Norwegians who fought with Germans on the eastern front against Russians. The past comes forward to the present - these survivors,traitors to their own country are being killed one by one. But who is seeking vengeance? Harry Hole becomes a target along with those close to him and others as he fights the past in the present when he gets involved in investigating neo-Nazi's and possibly someone in the Oslo Police Department. Norway's darkest hour may be still to come. Gery

I enjoyed this book very much. It will be interesting to read his next book to see if he keeps a thread going

This takes place in Norway and has a political ring to the story and I don't like those kind of books so I'll just pass this one along.
