The finale was nail bitingly exciting when Harry had to rescue himself and his two dependents from his cold blooded nemeisis. A deadly clash, complete with blood, gore and bone crunching amputation. Harry needed ingenious psychological games to counter and outsmart his rabidly incensed enemy to save his own skin.

I actually read this 5th Harry adventure few years back as my first in the series and promptly got hopelessly hooked on Harry like a junkie for Norwegian crime fiction. Determined to enjoy the series the right manner I went to the beginning with Harry's international ventures, first in Australia with The Bat: Intimacy with Harry naturally grew with familiarity as we read the series chronologically to understand the various important events in our long suffering and self conflicted detective. We see Harrys pains were mostly self inflicted because he shoulders the blame when bad things happen, like with his partner's murder by Prince.

Rather if he could just accept that everything happens according to destiny's arrangement he would not fester and wallow so much in self pity, wasting precious energy and time and missing out on living life. Without these three, Harry's path would definitely have been more treacherous and fruitless.

He injected more humor, twists, mysteries, history, human psychic analysis and ticklish pop culture references. Like a juicy 'who dun it' crime mystery, the story has a few murder suspects that kept us speculating as we read along. The devil was really in the details. With the help of his trustworthy boss, intelligent shrink, loyal childhood friend aka somnolence drug dispenser, beloved girlfriend and her child giving meaning to Harry's at times self destructive life, a sober Hole was on the other hand, a workaholic, brilliantly efficient, clever, brutishly funny, confident and a lean mean killing machine.

What you need to know before your trail

Highly resourceful and second guessing his enemy, he finally exposed the serial murderer and his motives, and also confronting his great nemesis in the end. Yet touchingly the author showed sympathy to the baddies as reflected in our hero Hole uncovering their motives by answering the question 'why? Nesbo gave us enough extenuating background details to the inevitable crooked paths our villains had taken.

What began in the prologue as a seemingly unrelated introduction of bricklaying profession in the olden days and the secret ingredient they use to fortify the walls came full circle with a brilliant sentence in the concluding line. A recurring statement in the story was that lust will always find the lowest level. So did the demise of the dirty cop. To fully appreciate the beauty, It is best read of course in the Norwegian language if you can. Like many, I enjoy Jo Nesbo's books for the narrative and characters, as well as for the expert and artful writing. In The Devil's Star, particularly on Kindle, the writer's habit of using pronouns rather than names consistently creates significant, pointless, and highly annoying confusion for the reader.

With the Kindle format at least, it is impossible to tell that the narrative has shifted focus -- there's a little more blank space to suggest this, maybe -- and when you continue reading, you're greeted with "him" and "her" but no proper names, creating the frequent problem of having to figure out who the heck is present and where the heck you are. This is obviously not suspenseful or mysterious -- it's just crappy presentation, really. I think this series has loads going for it, but after the 37th "guess who you're reading about" situation, the book starts to feel wordy, dull, and annoying.

Who formats, edits, and checks these publications? You're messing up a good thing. One person found this helpful. This is the only book I've ever read by the author. It grabbed me and wouldn't let go.

For that reason, I finished the book. But it was a struggle. I am not interested in reading book after book about how horrible life is for someone cursed with an addiction. Flawed characters can add to the complexity and attraction of a good story but, when overdone, the use of such a strategy interferes and detracts from the story.

The author offers nothing new from one book to the next regarding Harry's addiction. I read Nesbo's novels because I hoped to enjoy a great mystery. Hole has sunken further into his obsession with figuring out who killed his ex-partner and is still struggling to overcome his alcoholism. His boss and biggest supporter has lost all faith in him and has given him his last warning as well as his last case.

Can Hole figure out who the methodical satanic killer who has been terrorizing Oslo is? Firstly, the plot is not as complicated or as intriguing as the plots in The Redbreast or Nemesis. The motive was feeble and preposterous and the entrapment strange. Finally, there were a lot of characters and a lot of sub-stories that were completely unnecessary. The book felt really busy and all of these characters and sub-stories were distracting.

The only reason I enjoyed the book was because we finally got the showdown between Hole and his arch-enemy Tom Waaler. If you have read the previous Harry Hole 'Nemesis' first, it would surely be hard to deny that this was an excellent conclusion to what began as Hole's greatest hostile threat in his life coming from within his own rank and file police force.

It grabbed me and wouldn't let go. Detective Harry Hole is assigned to the case with his long-time adversary Tom Waaler and initially wants no part in it. But Harry is already on notice to quit the force and is left with little alternative but to drag himself out of his alcoholic stupor and get to work. A wave of similar murders is on the horizon. An emerging pattern suggests that Oslo has a serial killer on its hands, and the five-pointed devil's star seems to be the key to solving the riddle. Pursuing his suspicions during the Nemesis investigation, police inspector Harry Hole attempts to convince the Chief Inspector that his colleague, Tom Waaler is a smuggling kingpin known as the Prince, who has been involved in smuggling weapons into Oslo , as well as the murder of a number of witnesses including Harry's former partner who threaten his position.

Due to a lack of evidence, the response is less than positive and Harry retreats onto an alcoholic binge. His superior reluctantly sends termination of employment papers to the Chief Inspector, but Harry gets a short reprieve as the Chief is on holiday for three weeks and cannot sign them. Meanwhile, a murder victim is discovered, dead in her shower on the fifth floor, shot in the head.

Harry, investigating the murder scene, discovers a small, red five-pointed diamond under the eyelid of the victim and that a finger is missing from her left hand. Another murder is presumed when the director of a musical , My Fair Lady , reports that his wife has gone missing. Her finger is later sent to the National Criminal Investigation Service ; it has a ring on it with a small, red five-pointed diamond.

The director, Wilhelm Barli, is most upset, especially since his wife, Lisbeth, was due to take the lead in My Fair Lady , a role he later gives to his wife's sister. A few days later a third victim is found, this time in the female toilets at a local law firm. She is found on her hands and knees, with her head also on the floor and a five-pointed red diamond on the body. Yet again a finger has been removed. Meanwhile, Tom Waaler — who has heard about Harry's investigation of him — has offered Harry a position in his illegal dealings, especially as Harry's police career seems to be over.

He informs Harry that, should he — Harry — wish to join, he will be given a specific task to prove his loyalty. Tom dangles the large financial benefits of his criminal activities as an inducement.

Harry is initially confused as to why Waaler is effectively admitting his guilt, but is reminded that, as an alcoholic , Harry's evidence would not be sufficient to convict him if he went to his superiors. Harry agrees to think about the offer. A chance sighting of a pentagram brings Harry a flash of inspiration. The five-pointed diamonds found on the victims are in a similar shape — known as a Devil's Star — and Harry remembers having seen the same symbol at the murder scenes.
