Riding the wave of success of Scandinavian suspense, Norway’s Jo Nesbo has created a highly popular series featuring police detective Harry Hole. In this latest adventure, the Oslo cop is on the trail of a serial killer who leaves a star-shaped diamond behind on the bodies of his victims.
When he is assigned to the case, Harry finds himself - much to his dismay - paired with one of his least favorite colleagues, Tom Waaler. Because Harry blames the detective for the death of his former partner, there’s going to be plenty of friction between the two men as the investigation proceeds.
Determined to not only find the killer but also expose Waaler’s shortcomings, the off-the-rails alcoholic Hole is going to discover he will have to make some decisions that will radically affect his future. Of course, that assumes he lives long enough to have a future.
With The Redbreast and Nemesis already creating a fledgling fan base in this country, Nesbo is on his way to becoming one of the major names in Nordic noir suspense fiction. The Devil's Star will only add to that group of admirers and attract even more readers who enjoy the quirky but talented writer.
