Book 9 of 10 in the Harry Hole Series.

Book 9 of 10 in the Harry Hole Series. Here’s what’s in store for you if you read Phantom or any other of Jo Nesbo’s engrossing Harry Hole novels: maddening suspense; several confusing plots and subplots that collide and intersect with abandon and only make sense as the end approaches; an alcoholic, self-hating detective (Harry) who is perversely attractive because he’s so bloody brilliant; lots of violence, much of it directed at Harry; many characters with strange Norwegian names; insightful sketches of people worthy of a clinical psychologist; enough references.

Phantom" is the ninth novel in Jo Nesbo's Harry Hole series, and his sixth book I have read. Unfortunately, I find it a big disappointment. The usual macho, hard-boiled, and brutal style is ok. Harry being a virtual superman is not a problem. Phantom" pushes the believability boundaries too far, though. Let me just quote a scene where Harry cuts the throat of someone who is cutting his throat. There is way too much action. Too many twists and turns. There are too many characters.

Jo Nesbo’s Harry Hole novels are complex, ambitious constructions where suspenseful and fast-paced crime plots reflect our globalized modern world. Although Oslo is the background for Nesbo’s stories, the nature of contemporary crime pitches Harry against challenges in such remote corners of the world as Australia and Thailand, which lend the novels a truly international feel. However the key to Jo Nesbo’s international success, at least in part, lies in his highly original, yet utterly believable protagonist, Detective Harry Hole. A cult figure already after the first book, Hole is a genuine.

Harry Hole is also an alcoholic, a smoker and his family history is complicated. He is a complicated man and his relationship with his superiors is not always easy. That said, he is a respected detective and he has undergone special training in interrogation techniques and firearms at the FBI, which makes him a real asset, especially with serial killer cases. But now, the unthinkable has happened – Oleg, the boy he helped raise, has been arrested for killing a man.

Look out for the latest Harry Hole novel, The Thirst, coming May 9, 2017. But now, the unthinkable has happened-Oleg, the boy he helped raise, has been arrested for killing a man. Harry can't believe that Oleg is a murderer, so he returns to hunt down the real killer.

Fandoms: The Snowman (2017), Harry Hole Series - Jo Nesbø. Teen And Up Audiences. No Archive Warnings Apply. While on duty and serving as 24 hour protection for a young woman in danger from a criminal element, Detective Harry Hole finds it increasingly difficult to hold back his attraction, and the close quarters together in a hotel room with the power out from a storm isn't exactly helping.

Following from Jo Nesbø's electrifying international best-sellers The Snowman and The Leopard, now comes Phantom, which plunges the brilliant, deeply troubled, now former police officer Harry Hole into a full-tilt investigation on which his own tenuous future will come to depend.When Harry left Oslo again for Hong Kong—fleeing the traumas of life as a cop—he thought he was there for good. But then the unthinkable happened. The son of the woman he loved, lost, and still loves is arrested for murder: Oleg, the boy Harry helped raise but couldn't help deserting when he fled. Harry has come back to prove that Oleg is not a killer. Barred from rejoining the police force, he sets out on a solitary, increasingly dangerous investigation that takes him deep into the world of the most virulent drug to ever hit the streets of Oslo (and the careers of some of the city's highest officials), and into the maze of his own past, where he will find the wrenching truth that finally matters to Oleg, and to himself.

Of course, I am giving this book five stars. Jo Nesbo has demonstrated a great ability to improve his writing craft book after book. I believe I have read every book Mr. Nesbo has written (which has been translated into English) with the exception of POLICE and the soon to be published THIRST. This book is excellent, well plotted and demonstrates the author's maturation as a gifted writer.

For me, however, I miss the power he exhibited in his earlier works: the earlier Harry Hole and the stand-alone novels. Where the characters reached out, grabbed you by the gut and didn't let go.

This is still an excellent book and well worth the read. Highly recommended.

Here’s what’s in store for you if you read Phantom or any other of Jo Nesbo’s engrossing Harry Hole novels:

maddening suspense;
several confusing plots and subplots that collide and intersect with abandon and only make sense as the end approaches;
an alcoholic, self-hating detective (Harry) who is perversely attractive because he’s so bloody brilliant;
lots of violence, much of it directed at Harry;
many characters with strange Norwegian names;
insightful sketches of people worthy of a clinical psychologist;
enough references to streets and neighborhoods in Oslo that you’ll feel moved to call up a Google map of the city;
more than you would ever expect about corruption in the Oslo police; and
a brilliant young writer’s perceptive views of his country, ranked richest in the world by median income.
Phantom, the ninth of Nesbo’s Harry Hole novels, matches any of the others for suspense, complexity, and psychological depth. Harry, no longer a policeman, returns to Oslo for the first time in three years from Hong Kong, where he’s worked as a debt collector for a shady local character. Back home, he confronts the chilling reality that 18-year-old Oleg, son of Rakel Fauke, the love of his life, has been arrested for the murder of a junkie and is now in prison. The police department refuses to allow him to investigate the case because, by their lights, it’s closed: the evidence is compelling.

In pursuing his desperate effort to prove the innocence of the boy who used to call him Dad, Harry becomes embroiled in a puzzling network of junkies, street people, dope dealers, corrupt policemen, and a politician on the make, and, despite his reluctance, reunites with Rakel. The tale unfolds through twists and turns, puzzling to the end — with major questions left unanswered. It’s this sort of brain-teasing complexity that keeps bringing me back for more of Jo Nesbo’s work.

So far, I’ve read and reviewed Nesbo’s The Bat, Cockroaches, The Redbreast, Nemesis, The Devil’s Star, The Redeemer, and The Leopard. I have two to go: The Snowman and Police. You’ll see my reviews of them in this space in due time.

I have read and enjoyed all Jo Nesbo's novels that have been translated to English. Heroic stories generally require that good wins out over evil. In this story, they fight to a standoff, and that is a good part of the reason readers have found this novel to be much more dark than its precursors.

Reformed alcoholic Harry Hole has left the police force and fled to the far side of the world. A renowned tracker of serial killers, Harry now makes his living as the fist in the velvet glove of a Hong Kong loan shark. His detective skills and instincts are mostly intact, and, for the second time, a compelling situation draws him back to the mean streets of Oslo to unravel a mystery.

The story is complex, and the plot a bit plodding. As noted by most reviewers, there are twists, turns and surprises that gratify and shock the reader. I found the book hard to put down, but I also found it rough around the edges. To wit: essential plot details are provided as background through a dying soliloquy that starts at the beginning of the book and continues at crucial points up until the end. At a certain point, I found myself thinking "Just die, would you?" There are secondary, tertiary, and quaternary characters who seem to eat up far too much narrative space given their relative importance. Keeping the players straight is a challenge, and a bit more vigorous editing would have improved the product. And Harry's relationship with the love of his life, Rakel, is both one of the most puzzling dances to grace the printed page and the underpining of this story.

I'll read the next Jo Nesbo title for sure. I'm just not certain I will be looking forward to it with the same degree of anticipation as I did for Phantom.

I'm reading and enjoying the entire series of books. Nesbo is a terrific writer and he has created a compelling character in Harry Hole. I recommend these books without qualification. One quibble...I bought a couple of the books on the basis of Amazon's listing of the order of the stories and discovered that Amazon's list is wrong. This makes a difference because there is a sequence to Harry's story. At this point, I've given up reading them in order. If anyone is interested in the order, it's as follows: The Bat, The Cockroaches, The Redbreast, Nemesis, The Devil's Star, The Redeemer, The Snowman, The Leopard, and Phantom. The English translation of The Bat was published this past October. As far as I know, The Cockroaches has not been translated into English. Amazon sells all the books, but I had to order The Redeemer through a partner and it looks The Bat is also available through another seller. There is not a Kindle edition for every book.
