The Redbreast is actually the third of Jo Nesbø's detective novels featuring the alcoholic Harry Hole (who is on the wagon for most of this particular novel), but alas, it was the first to be translated into English. Nevertheless, it works fine as a standalone, though the impact of one particular event might have been greater had we been able to read about the character in the two previous novels. Anyway back to The Redbreast, which involves Nazis, both Old Skoole and Neo-, a couple of touchin [...]

Jo Nesbo ups his game. Way up.The third of Nesbo’s Harry Hole novels, this one published in 2000. In my review of the second novel, Cockroaches, I opined that as good a writer as Nesbo is, his best work lay in the future.Every now and then I am right about something and this time I was, The Redbreast is head and shoulders above his previous two books. This is inspired, confident and mature – almost as if he were shrugging off his Journeyman title and moving towards the ranks of master writer [...]

Here's the thing about the recent popularity of Scandinavian writers and if you're a Nordic Thriller aficionado you couldn't care less about the distinction: the novels are depressed, somber, filled with ennui, a lack of humor, with flawed characters if not suffused with a strong tendency towards determinism; in short, whether you're reading Stieg Larsson, Henning Mankell, or Jo Nesbo you are likely reading Literary Naturalism. If you live in Scandinavia you might consider this par for the cours [...]

Και κάπου εδώ ξεκινάνε όλα για το Χάρι. Αν η μέχρι τώρα ζωή του θεωρούνταν βασανισμένη και τον οδήγησε να γίνει αλκοολικός, είναι απορίας άξιο πώς κατάφερε να επιβιώσει από όσα ακολούθησαν μετά από την περιπέτεια αυτού του βιβλίου: είδε συνεργάτες του να σκοτώνονται, ήρθε α [...]

تصفية الخونة لدي عادة في السفر – تزعج زوجتي جدا ً -، وهي أن أزور أي مكتبة تصادفني، ولو كانت ركناً في مطار حقير، أتصفح العناوين الإنجليزية التي تكون نادرة أحياناً، اكتشف الأغلفة، أقلب الأوراق، حتى تجرني زوجتي بعيداً باتجاه الطائرة أو القطار المنتظر. وكان جو نيسبو أحد أكثر الأ [...]

There might be spoilers in the comments because this is one of those books you'll want to talk about with friends.I have it on good authority (*waves at Thomas*) that Harry Hole's last name doesn't rhyme with "goal". But who are we kidding. We're gonna laugh and snicker every time I mention Harry Hole in this review so go ahead and get it out of your systems. Harry Hole BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Sorry to anybody I may have offended by being a dumb American. Speaking of being a dumb American, some of you [...]

Jo Nesbo may be the best Scandinavian crime fiction writer going these days. He's created in Detective Harry Hole an interesting, deeply flawed protagonist who may remind American readers of Michael Connelly's Harry Bosch. The Redbreast is the third novel to feature Hole, and it's a complex story that moves back and forth between the Second World War and the turn of the Twenty-First Century. In the earlier action, a group of Norwegian soldiers are fighting for Hitler's Germany on the Eastern Fro [...]

According to alone, 7800 people gave this on average, 3.8 stars.I should have liked this, but to be honest it was a struggle for me to even finish.The story seems fractured, moving as it does, between two different time periods, the latter days of WWII and present day Oslo.Nesbo writes with the kind of authority that assumes every reader would be familiar with the history of Norway and why Norwegians were mixed up with the Germans on the Eastern Front. I kept looking, lo these many pages, for a [...]

With Harry Hole focussing his attention on Norwegian soil, Nesbø brings the third book in the series to the writer's attention. After a heroic act during a political summit, Hole is promoted to inspector and moved to the POT, a security directorate. In his new role, Hole begins an investigation into rumours that a high powered rifle has been brought into the country and may be used in an assassination attempt of some sort. Working in conjunction with his former partner, Ellen, they discover tha [...]

[7/10]There’s nothing wrong with this Scandinavian crime thriller, possibly the most popular of its category in recent years. Yet its technical achievements (pacing, characterization, research, atmosphere, etc) may have been what kept me being fully emotionally involved in the story. With a few exceptions of great character sketches, the story felt contrived and to clever for its own good. I would even go so far as call the plot forgettable if it were not for the numerous flashbacks to the Wor [...]

First off, there would never be a main character in an American mystery novel called Harry Hole, unless it was a crime-solving porn star, but it seems to work just fine, for this Norway based police officer. Harry is a tough, complex, hard-drinking cop, who may have discovered a possible assassination attempt.I am not going to reveal very much here, because one of the joys of reading this terrific Scandinavian thriller, was never knowing where this baby was going. It’s a very ambitious novel, [...]

Chim Cổ Đỏ là cuốn #3 trong serie Harry Hole của Jo Nesbo (bao gồm 10 cuốn). Số 1 và số 2 đắc tội gì với các vị mà lại chọn dịch cuốn đầu tiên trong serie là #3.

I'm quitting after four chapters. There have been four different scenes, a couple dozen characters and at least two dates (out of time sequentially). I HATE books written this way. Hate them. I already don't remember the characters. I don't remember which character goes with which scene. I don't want the first chapter preview of things yet to come. Mysteries are supposed to have confusing plots, not generate confusion by having the chapters in random order. I'm done with books written this way a [...]

Χάρι Χόλε, λοιπόν. Το πρώτο μας ραντεβού στη Νυχτερίδα έληξε άδοξα (τον παράτησα κάπου στο 30% και με πολλά νεύρα για το χρόνο που αφιέρωσα). Αυτό ήταν το δεύτερο και όπως θα είδατε και από τη βαθμολογία πήγε σαφώς καλύτερα από το πρώτο.Αλλά δεν τρελάθηκα κιόλας.Ας ξεκινήσουμε [...]

I'm reading this series in order; this is the third book featuring Norwegian detective Harry Hole. Unlike many reviewers, I loved the writing in the first two books. There, much of Nesbø's attention was drawn to the challenge of characterizing the cultural underbelly of Australia and Thailand. THE REDBREAST is unquestionably different: more ambitious, with a wider assemblage of characters, carefully calibrated tension and adrenaline-pumping action. Yes, there are also the outlines of a classic [...]

I think Jo Nesbo is a better writer than Stieg Larsson, although I enjoyed the Millenium series. This author requires some concentration, as the plot is quite complex, but it is worth it. I loved the characters and the Oslo setting. Not only do we get a well-constructed mystery, but also learn a bit of history. Looking forward to other books in the series.

I can confirm this is a good book, 500 pages sailed by and I was not keeping tabs on the page count, a thing I do when reading long books. It's all in the writing my friend and Nesbo has the knack for it.Like the redbreast above, this story is made up of bits all over the place and we see our Harry put bit by bit together, painfully so. Our Harry with the weight of life on his shoulders. In this one Nesbo picks up a hot potato, history, recent history and it's subjectivity. Facets of how history [...]

Granted, I readily admit that I am not cosmopolitan. Learning other languages (haven’t tried the Rosetta Stone) has always been a challenge for me never being successful---try as I may. Fortunately (or not) here in north Florida, knowing English is good enough although I do know my fair share of ‘red neck’ since north Florida is the center of the universe for the dialect. (Please don’t spread that around although I think it's already known.)With that said, at times I found myself a bit l [...]

Το τρίτο βιβλίο της σειράς είναι το πρώτο που διαδραματίζεται στο Όσλο.Έχουμε την ευκαιρία να ακολουθήσουμε τον Χάρυ Χόλε στα λημέρια του, να δούμε τους ντόπιους συνεργάτες και τους ανώτερους του, τα προβλήματα που αντιμετωπίζει στην ίδια του την πόλη. Τον βρίσκουμε επίσης [...]

]This is the third book in the Harry Hole series and Harry is developing into a very interesting and likeable character. It was nice to see him in this book in good relationships with two very important women in his life and some of the dialogue and observations were laugh aloud funny. There was a lot of concentration required as the book bounced around in time and place with many, many characters who mostly have Norwegian names! At first I wondered how it was going to all come together but of c [...]

Πολύ καλό, ένα βιβλίο που σε κρατάει από την αρχή μέχρι το τέλος.

I have to say, I felt a little bit confused during the first chapters: A strange accident with a Secret Service agent in which Harry was involved, neo-Nazi circles, scenes from the World War II, and not least, a lot of characters which Nordic names I couldn't memorize immediately. But the plot, the characters, my curiosity and of course a masterful writing got my WHOLE attention from the very first page, and, guys, it was soooo worth it! By far the best installment in the series, and for sure on [...]

This is more a straight-up mystery than a standard gruesome, let's kill women! Norweigian crime novel, and I like it like that. There seemed to be a tad of superfluous info, a few red herrings, and too many Helenas, but luckily, it's all tied up in a neat little package at the end. Everything ends up making sense and being a pretty crucial part of the story. I am horribly bummed out by the death of Ellen even though I knew it was coming. The way it's worded makes it one of the more haunting deat [...]

For those who enjoy the crime story/thriller/historical genre, this is as good as it gets. It is a complex story, with many threads, beautifully written (even in translation), great descriptions of people, places and action, never overdone, and with occasional splashes of humor. Nesbo presents the story in pieces, and much is unclear as it should be in this kind of story. I paused before the final pages, wondering how Nesbo would finish it. These last scenes were brilliant, even though several t [...]

Ο Nesbo έχει ταλέντο στο να αποτυπώνει την οξυδερκή του εικόνα της κοινωνικής πραγματικότητας και των παθογενειών της κι επιδεξιότητα στο να συνυφαίνει τα ατομικά κι ιδιωτικά με τα μεγαλύτερα πολιτικά και κοινωνικά προβλήματα της εποχής του.

When they advertise Jo Nesbø as ‘The Next Steig Larsson’, I’m inclined to pass on this author. But since a lot of people seem to be raving about this author, I thought I better check him out, especially when they class his Harry Hole series as Hard-Boiled. I’ve found the only reason they are calling him the next Larsson is simply because he is another Scandinavian crime writer; which means some overly graphic murders, Nazis and an expected twist. The Redbreast is the third book in the H [...]

Nemojte ovoj knjizi suditi po sižeu ni po prvih nekoliko strana a ni po koricama, pročitajte celu knjigu a onda donesite sud. Ova knjiga nudi uvid u život Norvežana, njihovu kulturu i istoriju, tako da ćete bar malo bolje upoznati ovaj skandinavski narod. Juov stil pisanje je prelep, čist i jednostavan a njegove knjige su jedinstvene.Ako očekujete kliše naci knjigu i potragu za mitskim blagom nacista potražite neku drugu knjigu. Ali ako želite kvalitetno da iskoristite svoje vreme pro [...]

Book DescriptionDetective Harry Hole embarrasses the Norwegian police force during a U.S. Presidential visit so he is reassigned to the Norwegian Security Service as an Inspector (a promotion that gets him out of the way and is supposed to shut him up). Assigned to investigate what should be a rather mundane case, Hole instead finds himself getting embroiled in a possible assassination plot that has its roots in World War II—involving some Norwegians who served on the Eastern Front in the serv [...]

Ο Κοκκινολαίμης είναι η Τρίτη κατά σειρά ιστορία του Χάρι Χόλε, αλλά ,εάν δεν κάνω λάθος, είναι η πρώτη που μεταφράστηκε στα ελληνικά, από τις εκδόσεις Ορφέας, χωρίς όμως να γίνει ευρέως γνωστός στο ελληνικό αναγνωστικό κοινό, καθώς η αποδοχή ξεκινάει αργότερα , όταν αρχίζου [...]

Ένα από τα καλύτερα βιβλία για να γνωρίσεις τον αστυνομικό του Jo Nesbo, Χάρι Χόλε.Για άλλη μια φορά ο Jo Nesbo είναι καταπληκτικός. Εξαιρετική δράση, ανατρεπτική πλοκή και ο μοναδικός τρόπος του συγγραφέα να αφηγείται και να παρουσιάζει στον αναγνώστη καινούρια δεδομένα, κάνουν τ [...]
