by Jo Nesbø
The Harry Hole series was on my “Must Read List” for some time. I just couldn’t decide where to start. When I initially thought about reading the series, the first books hadn’t been translated yet, so I wasn’t sure where to start. A couple of months ago, I saw that this book, “Police”, was coming out soon, so I thought that I would just jump in here. Well, now I know that I have another 9 books to try to fit in somewhere, because this book was great! I wasn’t overwhelmed trying to figure out the relationship between the characters and for the most part I don’t think that starting with Police will “spoil” the earlier books.
Mr. Nesbø has used so many plot twists and changes of direction that you really have to keep on your toes when reading Police. I thought that I had it figured out many times, that I knew what was going to happen next, only to turn the page and find out that I was totally wrong, again. I was never sure what the final outcome was until the last chapter, and even then, at the very end, up pops something new.
I give this book 5 Stars out of 5 and a Big Thumbs Up. If you like mystery thrillers with lots of plot twists and surprises, you will like this book.
