The Redeemer: Book summary and reviews of The Redeemer by Jo Nesbo
The Redeemer Summary
Christmas shoppers stop to hear a Salvation Army concert on a crowded Oslo street. An explosion cuts through the music and the bitter cold: one of the singers falls dead, shot in the head at point-blank range. Harry Hole - the Oslo Police Department's best investigator and worst civil servant - has little to work with: no suspect, no weapon, and no motive. But Harry's troubles will multiply. As the search closes in, the killer becomes increasingly desperate, and Harry's chase takes him to the most forbidden corners of the former Yugoslavia.
