This case involves old diaries, a sniper rifle, a few Neo-Nazis, and enough red herrings to leave you guessing til the end. The culprit has gunned down a bank teller in cold blood and all Hole has to go on is some grainy CCTV footage.
While scrutinising the video alongside Harry, she slowly comes out of her shell. However, his old flame is found with a bullet through her head. Nesbo also brings in a gypsy character along with lots of background on Romany gypsies.
Hole and his team are investigating an unusual murder — the victim is missing a finger and under the eyelid they find a tiny, star-shaped red diamond.
Hole is off the wagon, working in an alcohol-fueled daze and clinging to Rakel and her son Oleg, with whom he has formed a bond. Watch for the pulse-pounding finale — another fine set-piece from Nesbo. The Redeemer Frelseren — This one first appeared in Norwegian in , but was published in English in Further flashbacks in the book take us to the break-up of Yugoslavia, with Serb militias going on a violent rampage in Vukovar.
A Croat survivor of this, now a hitman, turns up in Oslo and kills a Salvation Army officer. At this stage Rakel has left him and has a new boyfriend.
Nesbo concludes the book with Harry Hole facing two killers and a moral conundrum. Another woman disappears and Harry Hole works alongside Katrine Bratt, a detective who has a complex past, just like him.
The plot is complex too and sees them connecting other missing persons cases to the snowman murders. Eventually, an all-too-perfect television host who has interviewed Harry Hole becomes a chief suspect. When it comes down to it the killer is closer to Hole, and ex-girlfriend Rakel, than anyone at first realised and our hero finds himself in a race against time to save her.
In one action scene, Hole loses the tip of one of his fingers. In , a much-anticipated film version was released with Tomas Alfredson directing, and Michael Fassbender in the role of Harry Hole. See below. All three victims are connected by the same ski lodge and the police attempt to use another member as bait for the killer. It goes wrong, however, and the killer escapes to the Congo.
Hole and Solness follow and face grave dangers in Africa where they are captured, and the action takes them to the very edge of a volcano.
The book contains many personal reflections for Harry Hole. During the story his father passes away, he meets once again with The Snowman of the previous novel, and seems to affirm that Rakel is the one love of his life.
Now an unruly teenager, Oleg has been living in a squat and is accused of killing a junkie. As the case unfolds it looks like Hole can get Oleg off the hook, but the boy has been dealing drugs. This brings Hole into contact with an organised, determined and innovative Russian outfit which is selling a powerful heroin substitute and seems to have influence within the police force.
A sub-plot involves a drug-smuggling airline pilot. Every so often, Hole encounters an elderly man who drifts onto the scene and offers him help and advice — what does this strange phantom character know about Oleg?
It opens with a patient in hospital in a coma. Meanwhile, Gunnar Hagen and his team of investigators are baffled by a series of murders that is taking place in Oslo. Someone is luring members of the force to the scenes of unsolved crimes, and then killing them in the same manner as the victim of the original crime. Both the Crime Squad and new chief of police Mikael Bellman seem out of their depth — but if Hole joins the investigation perhaps there will be a breakthrough.
This novel sees some real changes in Hole and his motivations, and also looks closely at the meaning of justice. When he eventually joins the hunt for the killer there are two questions. Firstly, how will they catch this brutal assassin? Second, how will diving into a gritty case affect both Hole and his relationships with Rakel and Oleg? You can read our review of Police here. After three years, the escaped rapist and murderer who was briefly a suspect in that case has re-emerged with a tweaked MO which involves prosthetic metal teeth, plenty of blood, and the dating app Tinder to target his prey.
