review 1: excellent read from Jo Nesbo. I am a huge fan and with each book not sure what to expect but never goes away unsatisfied. I cannot review this story without spoiling it for people that still want to read this but can say suspense builds up from first page with plenty of suspense,...

review 1: I finally completed this book. Howard & I started this as a book on CD for a road trip. He did not like it. He felt it was too dark. Harry Hole books are dark but always exciting and unpredictable. The ending was a shocker although I can not say I will miss the character in ...

review 1: Jo Nesbo has to be one of my favorite authors in the mystery/thriller genre. He never fails to deliver. 'The Son' is an action packed page turner mystery that keeps you guessing. At times when you think you know the 'who' a new twist occurs. He deftly spins an interesting web. ...

review 1: This was a solid mystery with action, and an intriguing non-linear narrative. I just have two criticisms. #1: it opened with an explicit sex scene that didn't fit the tone of the rest of the book. There were other sex scenes but not as explicit. It seemed like a cheap gimmick to ...

review 1: Thrillers aren't my favorite genre, but they hold my interest more when set in other countries. The Son is an enjoyable read, as long as graphic violence doesn't put you off. There were enough interesting characters to hold my attention, although most didn't have much development...

review 1: Yeah, OK, another flawed, alcoholic detective who's propped up by people who can't help wanting to look after him, including a young and talented colleague and the woman who can't let him go. Despite that, I like the twisty plots, the exotic location, the sheer heft of them. I li...

review 1: In so many ways, this book wasn't what I wanted. Maybe it was the gory dismemberment of young mothers that started the aversion.In the Redbreast, the culprit was so difficult to identify that it kept me guessing until the very end. I was stumped, then hooked on Harry Hole.Here,...

review 1: This is a tough book to like. Come to that, I find that true of Norwegian Jo Nesbø as a writer but he is good at plotting and can keep me reading to the bitter end. The Snowman is the first book by Nesbø that I have read. Apart from some confusingly abrupt scene changes, the stor...

review 1: The Redeemer (there isn't an entry for this book by itself).Nesbo's Harry Hole (which he claims is pronounced "hula", even though the audio books consistently pronounce it "hole".... I wonder why this is? Don't they consult the author?).. anyway... his novels are always intriguin...

review 1: Nilly and Lisa team up with Doctor Proctor to bring pleasure to the children of Oslo with Dr. Proctor's fart powder. What fun!! If only they could relieve themselves of the nuisance that is the twins Truls and Trym.I picked this book up because I had high hopes based on the aut...

review 1: I've only read one of these stories, Nemesis, but it is not listed separately. This is about a shooting after a jewelry store robbery, investigated by Harry Hole. It turns out to be related to the "suicide" of Anna, and also to a bank robber who is currently in jail. Harry makes ...

review 1: This book was called Doctor Proctor's Fart Powder by Joe Nesbo. This book was fiction because it has things in the book that would never happen in real life. This book was about a boy who moves into a new neighborhood. There is a crazy doctor that lives right next to the boy. The...

review 1: See on üks ääretult napakas, aga humoorikas lugu hullumeelsete ideedega professor Proktorist ja tema kahest väikesest sõbrast, kes talle abiks on. Kuna tegevus toimub Norras, siis ei ole midagi parata, kui mõningad nimed on parajad keeleväänajad ning kohaolustik ühele Eesti lapse...

review 1: On the back of the ‘Doctor Proctor's Fart Powder’ written by Jo Nesbø is the claim that this is the story of a fart. And that is the truth.But the prejudice that Nesbø used a vulgar and meaningless way to attract attention reader should leave aside. This is a high quality and ver...

review 1: Nakon genijalne “dječje” knjige “Prdoprah doktora Proktora” slijedi jednako zanimljiv nastavak. Riječ “dječje” namjerno je u navodnicima – knjiga JEST dječja no podjednako oduševljava i odrasle, a one koje su u mojem vlasništvu stalno su posuđene. Iako Nesbo zasluženo slovi kao m...

review 1: Musím říct, že předchozí díl mě bavil o trochu víc. Pravda, tady šlo o trochu vážnější téma, zápletka byla brilantní, rozuzlení také, ale u Vany času jsem se smála snad na každé stránce. Nicméně, dětem neuvěřitelně závidím, já jsem musela vypadat trochu infantilně, když jsem dnes...
