Summary: Detective Harry Hole, still in turmoil over the unsolved death of his partner, is spiraling downward to termination, until asked to work on the case of a serial killer.

Detective Harry Hole’s life is a mess. His former detective partner, Ellen Gjelten was killed and the murder is unsolved. It has estranged him from his partner, Rakel, and eventually his offenses, fueled by his drinking, have mounted to such a point that even his boss, Bjarne Moller, can’t shield him from dismissal.

But there is one more case, or rather a string of them. The murder of Camille Loen, which he walked out on because of being paired with his nemesis Tom Waaler, has turned into a series of murders following a pattern–a finger severed, a red diamond star left somewhere on the victim with another carved in the vicinity, and a shot to the head. Five days later, Lisbeth Barli, a singer living with a theatre impresario goes missing until her finger arrives at the police department. Then in another five days later, a receptionist found dead in a fifth floor restroom.

Hole, the only detective to solve another serial killer case, is asked to assist Waaler, despite his suspicions that Waaler is corrupt. Waaler in turn plays on the imminent dismissal to Hole to try to lure him into his corruption. Meanwhile, it is Hole who figures out the pattern. The five-pointed stars are pentagrams, a demonic symbol. There is a pattern of fives–five days, fifth floors, different digits for each murder. The pattern leads to a suspect and future murder locations. But something bother Hole. It seems a bit too perfect.

This one has a page-turner climax that I will not spoil by discussing it. This was my first Jo Nesbø. I’d heard others recommend his work. Hole is a gritty and flawed character, but like other great detectives, he thinks and muses and keeps thinking. He spots patterns and thinks beyond them. I realized that he has a history that I may have missed by not reading the earlier books (this was a deal on Kindle). Will he self-destruct or find an equilibrium that allows him to survive.

Nesbø sets this in Oslo during the summer, amid the warp and woof of urban life–students, theatre, business. The mounting heat wave provides an atmospheric backdrop as we await the storm to break. A longsuffering boss, a savvy cab driver, and a longsuffering girlfriend and her adoring son all seem to see something beneath the troubled life of this detective. I found myself turning the pages to see how this would all turn out, and find myself wanting to hang in there with this Harry Hole guy as well. ( )

I honestly can't tell right now whether I like this series or if I'm just getting used to this character. There are definitely parts I don't like. The general tone of these books is very pessimistic and that can get tiresome. I don't tend to like the alcoholic but brilliant detective character, which is exactly what Harry is. I do find his character frustrating to read sometimes. However, I do keep reading these, and I will keep reading. I did like this one more than some of the others. Hopefully, I like the next book as well. ( )

Absolutely gripping. The tension that builds throughout this book and within the series is unsurpassed. I love the way Nesbø constantly introduces new settings, characters and angles so that there is no centre to the plot. It just unfolds through a series of seemingly disconnected people, places and events. ( )

Excellent Scandinavian crime series (only three translated to English so far); good for those who enjoy Stieg Larsson. Harry Hole is back trying to nail his archenemy, the Prince, who he is still convinced is a fellow detective, Tom Waaler, and who was responsible for the murder of his police partner, Ellen. Harry gets in very deep again, inadvertently dragging in his girlfriend's family but triumphes by following his uncanny intuitions. ( )

The house was built in 1898 on a clay base that had since sunk a tiny bit on the west-facing side, causing water to cross the wooden threshold where the door was hung.
