Description
As Christmas shoppers stop to hear a concert on an Oslo street, a man in a Salvation Army uniform suddenly falls dead, shot by another man at close range, who then seemingly melts away. Harry Hole—the police force department's best investigator and worst civil servant—has no suspect, weapon, or motive. But Hole's troubles have only just begun, in his sixth gripping mystery (following The Devil's Star), as the assassin discovers that he has shot the wrong man and becomes frantic in the search for his real target. Hole's pursuit leads him into the darkest corners of Croatia, where a killer was forged in the war with Serbia, but it's when he returns to Oslo that he encounters true darkness, where the homeless, the junkies, and the Salvationists all await a savior—whether he brings new life or immediate death. One of Europe's most critically acclaimed and successful crime writers, Jo Nesbø won the highly prestigious Glass Key Award for Best Nordic Crime Novel with his first novel featuring the brilliant but alcoholic detective Harry Hole, while The Redbreast, his first Harry Hole mystery in English, was voted as the best Norwegian crime novel of all time by Norwegian book club readers.

"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

"A grimly realistic portrait of the Norwegian capital—druggies shooting up in public; refugees being exploited in private—as well as an engrossing mystery, full of twists.... The Croatian assassin is a fascinating character—a former war hero with a truly fatal gay charm—who has the advantage of 'hyperelasticity,' a face so mobile no one can remember it. Nesbø's work is full of such idiosyncratic detail."—Evening Standard (London)
