Publisher's Summary

Grainy CCTV footage shows a man walking into a bank and putting a gun to a cashier's head. He tells her to count to twenty-five. When he doesn’t get his money in time, she is executed. Detective Harry Hole is assigned to the case. While Harry’s girlfriend is away in Russia, an old flame gets in touch. He goes to dinner at her house and wakes up at home with no memory of the past twelve hours. The same morning the girl is found shot dead in her bed. Then Harry begins to receive threatening e-mails. Is someone trying to frame him for this unexplained death?

Meanwhile the bank robberies continue with unparalleled savagery. Gripping and surprising, Nemesis is a thriller by one of the biggest stars of Scandinavian crime fiction.

    I'm a middle-aged career woman who has no time to read, the book must be intelligent and grab me straight away, love thrillers.

    "Scandal crime at its best"
    Where does Nemesis: A Harry Hole Thriller, Book 4 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Jo Nesbo just gets better and better. I am deeply in love with Harry and keep forgetting he is not a real person!


    What did you like best about this story?

    Harry Hole, the main character.


    Have you listened to any of Sean Barrett’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    Sean is the best. He doesn't just narrate, he IS the characters, and he is just wonderful when he does Harry's voice. It's pure genius.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Poor Harry. I am always moved by this poor man's struggle with life.


    Any additional comments?

    Brilliant.

    Story
    "Jo Nesbo at his best"

    In the tradition of the great European crime novels like "The Laughing Policeman", "Smilla's Sense of Snow" and Philip Kerr's Bernie Gunther series, Nesbo continues with his Harry Hole novels in this terrific new entry.

    Hole, struggling with his alcoholism as well as his new love relationship and the death of his partner, finds himself caught up in trying to solve a murderous bank robbery while trying to convince his superiors that his partner's death is - contrary to their belief - still unsolved and that he should be allowed to pursue an investigation into it.

    This is a compelling entry in the series, with rich characterizations and impeccable plotting.

    Story
    "Still trending up - with a bullet"

    Book 4 is the best Harry Hole story to date. Again I have had to deliberately restrain myself from reading Book 5 at once. That has to be a good sign. The plot is a continuation of Book 3 (The Redbreast), but not just an episode from a TV drama that begins, "Last time on ...". The new story is a complex one. The plot is carefully crafted. Harry, apparently happy, just can't resist an old flame and from there the set up begins.
    The clues are all there. I'd think I'd figured it out, then, blam, suspect dead. I'd think I'd figured it out, then dismiss it and think again. Somewhere along this process, I did figure it out, but I wasn't sure until Harry revealed the truth.
    Harry is the harbinger of the truth. He's as unlikely a harbinger as any, but this far into our relationship, he's now a comfortable part of the big picture. A new character is introduced, too; another unfortunate woman in Harry's seedy life. Tom Voller (aka David Hasselhoff) returns, as do Mueller and the rest of the team. There is new and old.
    Sean Barrett continues his portrayal of Harry. He is growing on me. By Book 5 I expect him to be a 3.5 and by Book 6, a 4. There are no complaints.
    One warning, these books are addictive!

    "Sweet Jesus, why isn't this a TV show?"
    Where does Nemesis: A Harry Hole Thriller, Book 4 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of the best. Intricate plot that didn't strain credibility, great narration with consistent character voices, unpredictability.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Nemesis: A Harry Hole Thriller, Book 4?

    The long explanation of the two major crimes.


    Which character – as performed by Sean Barrett – was your favorite?

    Tom Voller. Just menacing.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    There were times I had to turn it off for a while because i knew something bad was coming.


    Any additional comments?

    This is only my 3rd Harry Hole book (for some reason I skipped the flashback #2 but will go back to it at some point). It's hard to see how Redbreast wouldn't make a great 1st season to a 10 episode Netflix show and Nemesis being season 2. I can't wait to download the next one and see some resolution of some dangling storylines. Yeah, you know what I'm talking about!!!

    Typical Harry Hole! Clever, full of suspense with intelligent, real characters. An easy plot to follow but filled with clever twists and turns. A must read.

    "Your worst 'best friend'."

    You absolutely know that Harry will come through for you but along the way he will take you on a roller coaster ride of mistakes, bad judgement, wrong turns and the odd bender. This all makes for a riveting read and you find yourself doing the literary equivalent of shouting at the television! Harry......what are you doing? Harry Hole is one of the most interesting characters I have met (read). In real life you would wonder how he gets by and yet Jo Nesbo writes in such a way that he is so 'real' you think perhaps you are missing something and that maybe this is the way to be. As a hero he has many faults but you cannot help but admire the inner voice that somehow keeps him on the straight and narrow. The story is deftly paced, building twists and turns into the plot with effortless ease. I find myself waiting for the next story and dare I say it the inevitable screenplay. Now there's a question - who would you want to play Harry?

    "Super read"

    This is the third book of the Harry Hole series I've read in as many weeks, and I enjoyed it just as much as the others. This is a little more conventional than The Redbreast but still a cracking psychological thriller that weaves together the strands of two different investigations that prove to be related. Jo Nesbø has a real talent for complex plots that keep you guessing all the way, only to be surprised you didn't join the dots earlier when the reveal happens. Looking forward to the conclusion of the Oslo Trilogy and fifth in the Harry series now - The Devil's Star.

    I know, I've given it 5 stars and my title doesn't match. the story itself is a good one, I just find the first few books so long winded and I struggle to finish them! Don't be put off, if you've got the time to concentrate on it, it's a gooden!
