Helpful Score: 2
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.
