Review of The Redbreast

Another Harry Hole novel, with a very intricate plot. Harry is flawed detective fighting the demon alcohol. This adds a layer to humanness that adds to the quality of the read. The novel starts with Harry being promoted to cover an embarrassing flaw in the security surrounding the visit of President Clinton to Oslo. Harry's suspicions are aroused when an assassin's rifle is smuggled into Norway. There is a serial killer on the loose and there are scenes dating back to Norway's role in World War 2. For the insight into this history the novel is worth reading alone. Harry's partner is also he is best friend, Ellen. Also there is a romantic interest that adds another layer of interest. There are many sub-plots but the book handles them exceptionally well, developing at a pace so that the reader's interest is held. Highly recommended
