Title: The Redeemer
Author: Jo Nesbo; Don Bartlett
In the press
“Fast-and-furious.” —The New York Times Book Review
“The pace is relentless. . . . The plot . . . [is] complex without becoming overheated.” —San Antonio Express-News
“Though there’s plenty of twisty plot, it’s Nesbø’s writing—textured, humane, evocative, moody, cinematic—that keeps this thing rolling forward like a toboggan on a steep slope.” —Minneapolis Star Tribune
“The Redeemer rocks! Jo Nesbø is my new favorite thriller writer and Harry Hole my new hero. This book had my pulse in the red zone from start to finish.” —Michael Connelly
“Full of shocking chance and nuance, unforeseen twists and ice-crystal clear views of Oslo in winter.” —The Wall Street Journal
“A tour de force. . . . So tightly constructed and compelling that it’s impossible to put the book down.” —The Globe and Mail (Canada)
“A treat. . . . Even when you’re positive that the mystery is entirely done and dusted, it invariably turns out that the pragmatic Detective Harry Hole has managed to stay three steps ahead, and there’s more to uncover.” —Time Out
“Nesbø is no ordinary writer. . . . A complex story, impossible to second-guess, which proves that greed, lust and a desire for revenge lurk within the saintliest of folk.” —The Sunday Telegraph
“Rarely does a mystery novel succeed on so many levels, as the intricate plotting explores psychological and theological dimensions that go deeper than standard notions of good and evil. . . . Those with an affinity for the darkest and most literary crime fiction will want to get here as soon as they can.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“The search for redemption is on—redemption through violence. The deeply flawed Hole is his familiar self: difficult and disrespectful, brilliant and intuitive. . . . Told in powerful prose, [The Redeemer] never fails to grip.” —Publishers Weekly
“No doubt about it: Nesbø belongs on every crime-fiction fan’s A-list.” —Booklist
