    Jo Nesb remains a master of Scandinavian noir. Harry Hole has broken up with Rakel, and has dived deep into a drinking hole. He wakes us covered in blood, and cannot remember how that happened. Any way, he goes to a grisly murder scene and seeing the crime immediately suspects a rece...

    Knife, is Jo Nesbo?s 12th entry in his Harry Hole noir-detective series. I love this series to the moon and back. Harry is at the very top of my list of favorite characters ever created, but he is so damaged, that if faced with him in real life, I would run in the opposite direction....

    Jo Nesbo?s Harry Hole novels have always been a special type of police procedural. In spite of his alcoholism and damaged psyche, Harry has been the steadfast brilliant police officer that you hoped would find love and peace. It would occasionally find him, right his world for a bit,...

    I want to admire Jo Nesb more than I actually admire him. He's undeniably clever; I think he's probably scarily intelligent. He is undeniably dark, macabre, to the point of grotesquerie. Hole is a classic noir figure, filled with demons and dogged determination; Kurt Wallander with i...

    Harry Hole finds himself at the lowest point in his life. He has been removed from his position as lead detective for the Oslo police and reassigned to the 'cold case' department. His beloved wife ,Rakel, has left him and he has once again fallen into his alcoholic state. And he is abo...

    Complex "locked room" murder mystery by the very talented Jo Nesbo was good but 100 pages too long. He should have used the "Knife" for cutting pages! Sometimes "less is more" works well with lengthy crime fiction best sellers in addition to most everything else! ...

    Well Jo Nesb is back. And I don't want to ruin it for anyone with spoilers. Jo makes it real and to the point in most instances. Did he or didn't he? Jo makes it seem like everyone is the culprit. You learn facts that are true about Harry. You have to read this book for yourself. Jo ...

    Multiple plot lines, creepy sex crimes and barrels of alcohol fuel this new Jo Nesbo book featuring his talented but troubled Norwegian detective, Harry Hole. It?s a good book for crime fiction fans who enjoy complex mysteries, but with the large cast of characters and numerous twist...

    Jo Nesb returns with yet another of the Harry Hole novels, as intriguing as it is dark. When Harry wakes from a drunken stupor, covered in blood, he is unsure what?s happened. Could it have been a bar fight gone wrong, or perhaps something a little more dastardly? While he shakes o...

    Harry has fallen off the band-wagon. Rakel has thrown him out, he is drinking too much and has a desk job at the police mostly involving playing tetris. Then his life is thrown so far off track that there can be no more saving. As pieces of his memory from one fateful night with black-...

    I read the first part with disappointment, as it felt like a cliched thriller where bad things happen and a clumsy investigation proceeds to its conclusion. And then comes the second part, where every assumption gets upended and every red herring that has been scattered all comes toget...

    With great sadness, I must announce that Harry and I are done. I will not be reading this series in the future and I hope that Jo Nesb will respect my decision and not write anything else. When you read 12 books of a series, it is inevitable that some of them will not be to your liki...

    Another really excellent visit with Harry Hole. It was full of surprises and many, many red herrings as Harry followed first one suspect and then another. I guessed the true culprit but only because I always pin it on the most unlikely person. Totally enjoyable and now we are left t...

    A very good mystery in which, I swear, each of the characters is at some point a suspect. And despite the identity of the victim, it is very seldom maudlin. ...

    I never expected that any other Nesbo's book will outshine The Snowman... then The Phantom happened... and after that, The Police took the no.1 position. But this book, in my humble opinion, is a real masterpiece of suspense. If you thought you know something... better thing twice...

    Somewhere between 4 and 5 stars. This book was heart wrenching. It really kept me guessing and everyone was a suspect. I feel like we are back on track with this one. ...

    Before beginning my review of the latest Harry Hole novel, I should mention that perhaps there are some minor spoilers in this review, so be warned. ---SPOILERS AHEAD--- After the disappointment I felt by both Police (#10) and Thirst (#11), this book's storyline, character and fe...

    I hated this novel. Every-single-moment. I hate what happens to Harry and to pretty much every single character. The plot is devastating and fantastic. I didn't enjoy seeing Harry and his loved ones suffer but only a master could have written this. Nothing is what it seems and finding ...

    Wow. Knife adds another layer to the Harry Hole series! I wasn't expecting *that* ! I can?t say much without giving spoilers, so I am going to keep this review brief. A life-altering murder puts Harry Hole in the spotlight.With his career and credibility at stake, Harry ...

    2.5*. Im a massive fan of Harry Hole but I felt like this story just felt a little tired to me. I think some people will still love it. Don't think I'll continue this series. I loved it when Harry was in his slightly younger prime. ...

    A new book from my favorite author is ALWAYS a cause for celebration, but I have to say, Nesbo's Knife truly blew me away, even more than I was expecting. This book feels like vintage Nesbo: it's dark and gritty, but it's not as gory as 2017's The Thirst , and I think that's a great...

    It's time for Jo Nesbo to force Harry Hole into retirement. Nesbo has stated in interviews in prior years (at least two books ago) that he planned to stop writing Hole novels, and that Harry needed to go away, but possibly either the success of those novels or what to do to/with Hole h...

    KNIFE is a sterling example of Jo Nesb?s considerable literary talent. I can?t think of anyone else who can take the apple cart --- which he has constructed carefully over the course of what is now 12 novels in the Harry Hole series --- and not only kick it over, but also jump up...

    As I've indicated before, the previous time I was a Goodreads member, I had written quite the handful of book reviews before that I regret not saving before temporarily deleting my account. Several of those were reviews of Jo Nesb's books about Detective Harry Hole. These are now los...
