“Nesbø’s storytelling abilities are incomparable. Nemesis is crime novel as art form and great entertainment.”
USA Today

The #1 international bestseller from one of the most celebrated crime writers in Europe--the New York Times bestselling author of The Snowman--Jo Nesbø’s extraordinary thriller Nemesis features Norwegian homicide detective Harry Hole, “the next in the long line of great noir crime detectives,” (San Diego Union-Tribune) in a case as dark and chilling as an Oslo winter’s night. The second Harry Hole novel to be released in America—following the critically acclaimed publication of The RedbirdNemesis is a superb and surprising nail-biter that places Jo Nesbø in the company of Lawrence Block, Ian Rankin, Michael Connelly, and other top masters of crime fiction. Nesbø has already received the Glass Key Award and the Booksellers’ Prize, Norway’s most prestigious literary awards. Nemesis is proof that there are certainly more honors in this extraordinary writer's future.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michos | 2/18/2014

    " Keeps you on the edge,like every Nesbo's book "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Caroline Maguire | 2/7/2014

    " This is the second Harry Hole novel, which I picked up because I couldn't find the first one. Very good. Very enjoyable. Would recommend. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brenda Dolha | 2/1/2014

    " This guy is a terrific writer- highly recommend to Marvin. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Zoe Jussel | 2/1/2014

    " What an interesting happenstance to come across this author. Written in the finite and precise style of Stieg Larsson, but without the "wow" factor...or should I say, the "omigod" factor. I found the protagonist, Inspector Harry Hole, to be almost without redeeming qualities, but you can't help liking him and being in his cheering section. This one book had several stories woven within it, and each finally does come to its own conclusion. Might be a bit wordy for many, but intelligently and thoughtfully written. I am going on to another now, The Snowman. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chip Atkinson | 1/17/2014

    " Absolutely my favorite new writer, Nesbo's character development, plot, the twists and suspense rival Thomas Harris and Larsson. I loved every second of this and The Snowman. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pat Lampe | 1/8/2014

    " Good mystery set in Oslo. Jo Nesbo is one of my favorite crime writers and I hope more of his books are translated soon. The narrator was excellent. This book kept me company over two co plete days of manual labor at our lake house. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rachel | 1/5/2014

    " Only three stars for this one. Too many storylines for my liking "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Richard Etzel | 1/5/2014

    " First time with this author. A very involved plot. Sometimes difficult to remember all the various twists and turns. Some of the difficulty was in the translation assuming the reader understood all places and names. It ends leaving a wonder if characters will show up in another book. "

    " got to page 333, quit reading, got old, predictable "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amanda | 10/8/2013

    " I liked this book. It had less graphic violence than The Leopard but it also had a lot of different cases that were loosely connected. Overall a good read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Hana sudradjat | 9/4/2013

    " IT'S A DISAPPOINTMENT FOR ME. sorry. too much attention to harry hole.and that annoys me very much. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robert Spencer | 3/25/2013

    " This guy really knows how to craft a storyline. This isn't as good as The Redbreast, but it's still eminently readable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Petrus | 11/15/2012

    " Far-fetched and enjoyable as always "

    " Not as good as The Snowman, but entertaining. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 zenbren | 6/28/2012

    " Another HarryHole triumph.Preceding the darker Snowman and The Leopard novels,this tale is equallyg ripping but much less gruesome. Nesbo really is a sophisticated thriller writer, who keeps you guessing right to the end--and even thn you can still be unsure about the conclusion. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maureen | 6/11/2012

    " I found some of the translation to be awkward but otherwise it was enjoyable. I think however if this had been the first Jo Nesbo book I read, I would not be inclined to seek more. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 James | 3/15/2012

    " Fantastic! Lots of twists and turns, well developed characters, a real page-turner! "

    " One thing is sure, Jo Nesbo is not the "new" Stieg Larsson. "
