Police (Harry Hole, #10) by Jo Nesbø

Police (Harry Hole, #10)

When a police officer is found murdered at the scene of an old unsolved murder case that he was involved in investigating, it can hardly be a coincidence. When the same thing happens to two other officers in a matter of months the pattern is as clear as it is terrifying. None of the old cases were ever solved. The killings are extremely brutal and the police have no leads. What’s more, they’re missing their best investigator.At the same time,...

  • Phrynne
    I know I am a sucker for a Harry Hole book but this one has to be the best yet. I simply could not put it down. Nesbo spends most of the book playing mind tricks on the reader and even in the last chapter he gives things a little twist that has you sitting on the edge of your seat. Multiple murders, multiple murderers and the loss of some very unexpected people make it completely enthralling. There are more things I would like to say but at the s...

    Interesting plot line marred by too much gimmickry and manipulationA killer is targeting police officers; specifically officers who were involved in the investigation of unsolved murders. The killer lures an officer to the scene of the previous crime and kills the cop in a way similar to the original murder. The investigators believe that if they can only figure out the killer's motive, maybe they can find this relentless killer, who has left the...

    In this 10th book in the 'Harry Hole' series, a serial killer is targeting police officers. The novel can be read as a standalone.*****A serial killer in Oslo has a bizarre agenda. Time after time the murderer lures a cop to the scene of an unsolved crime, then viciously kills him/her in a manner somehow connected to what originally happened there. Harry Hole is not available to assist the investigation so other members of the crime squad have to...

    10 starsPoliceAnyone who doesn't dare to stand up for justice should have a guilty conscience.Police is a riveting follow up to Phantom, the previous novel in the Harry Hole series and seamlessly picks up where Phantom ended. Excerpt from the end of Phantom - (view spoiler)[The recoil made the barrel jump and the third bullet hit him in the head. He fell. Beneath him, darkness. And he plunged into it. Until it swallowed him up and swept him into ...

    I'm frank to confess that I have no idea how to review this book, and I will also say that, to my mind, a number of reviewers and even the publishers themselves have given away key elements of the plot that will diminish the enjoyment of the book for anyone unfortunate enough to have read their comments.Suffice it to say that I thoroughly enjoyed the book and was on the edge of my seat for much of the time I spent with it. Readers who have enjoye...

    Rarely give out 5 stars but this is a no brainerEvery time I read one of Nesbo's books, I am struck again by just how good he is. The previous book ended with Harry being shot by Oleg, the young man he helped raise & son of the woman he loves. This one opens with a comatose patient lying in a hospital bed under police protection. If he could speak, he'd have a few things to say about a couple members of the force, one currently under suspension, ...

    Book Review The rat bit once into the leather shoe. Licked the metal again, the salty metal that protruded between the two of the fingers on the right hand. Scrabbled up the suit jacket that smelled of sweat, blood and food, so many types of food that the linen material must have been in a garbage can. She ran up the arm, across the shoulder, stopped at a bloodstained bandage around the neck. Then she scuttled up the chest. There was still a stro...

    Το δέκατο βιβλίο της αστυνομικής σειράς είναι καταιγιστικό και κατ’ εμέ το πιο αγχωτικό απ όλα. Ειδικά στα πρώτα κεφάλαια όπου ο Jo Nesbo μας αποπροσανατολίζει χάρη στην αφηγηματική του δεινότητα. Κεντρικός πυρήνας είναι οι βίαιες δολοφονίες αστυν...

    After Phantom's amazing twist-hanger I was almost delirious with glee and trepidation when I heard the next Harry Hole book Police was coming out.So was my anticipation satisfied?Yes - however not in the way I expected. Police is a weightier tome than other Hole novel's and thusly the length of the novel evokes tension as a slow-burn rather than a furious action packed feast. While perhaps less immediately exciting Nesbo plies us with a smorgasbo...
  • LeeAnne
    I think this will be my last Jo Nesbo novel. This book starts out great but it becomes purposely confusing and misleading, to the point of utter annoyance. The storyline is all over the place with several plot threads happening simultaneously, jumping back and forth. There are 3 main suspects and the pronoun "he" is often used in place of a name to keep the reader guessing the identity of the killer. "He did this, then he did that". When you comb...

    Full kudos to Nesbo, the magician, trickster per excellance! This being my 11th Nesbo, I had as usual prepared myself to his tricks, to not be drawn in, turned around and sidetracked, hoodwinked with a nod and a wink. Oh I was prepared and still grrr, I got pulled in and had to shield myself from all the theories and red herrings slapping me in the face, leaving me grasping at straws.Bravo, what else can I say. Reading Nesbo is an immersive exper...

    Parque Frogner - Monólito - Oslo, Noruega”Polícia” (2013) é o décimo livro da série Harry Hole do escritor norueguês Jo Nesbo (n. 1960).Depois do final enigmático e em aberto de ”O Fantasma” (2011) o detective Harry Hole está ausente na parte inicial de o ”Polícia”. Os seus colegas são confrontados com um assassino à solta em Oslo que selecciona cuidadosamente as suas vítimas: todos eles eram polícias que directamente se ...

    Jack Reacher versus Harry Hole. That's been a contest during my August reading, but sorry Mr Child, Jo Nesbo has blown you out of the water. I've been lucky enough to receive a preview copy of Police, the new Harry Hole story, and its a five star, no if's or but's. Nesbo is boxing very clever in Police, giving us leads that are really ruses, especially as regards the state of health or otherwise of Harry. In fact we have to wait until Chapter 18 ...

    Εάν κάποιος μου έλεγε πρίν από 1-1,5 χρόνο ότι θα ερχόταν η ώρα που θα βαθμολογούσα ένα βιβλίο της σειράς Harry Hole με μόλις ένα αστεράκι, σίγουρα θα τον περνούσα για τρελό. Να όμως που το τελευταίο, μέχρι στιγμής, βιβλίο του Jo Nesbo κατάφερε να με κάνει σχεδ...

    Thinking about this book, the series and how it has evolved, I can't help contrasting it with the works of certain American "best seller" mystery/thriller authors whose series characters now lack the imagination, energy and complexity they showed in earlier books. "Police", Jo Nesbo's 10th Harry Hole book, takes the series and the genre itself, to a whole new level of non-formulaic excellence and establishes him on the cutting edge. Without givin...

    Najavljen kao završni deo serijala o Hariju Huleu, Policija je zapravo samo uvod u Žeđ, jedanaesti roman o vitkom, visokom, plavokosom i alkoholu sklonom norveškom lovcu na ubice. Iskreno, nije mi se dopalo kako je u Policiji razrešena situacija sa Harijevim posinkom Olegom koja je kulminirala na kraju devetog romana. Nije mi to delovalo uverljivo. Nimalo, zapravo. To mi je prva zamerka, ali i ne i ključna. Roman ima dve narativne linije - ...

    It took me a while to get around to this book and I think it was at least partly due to it being of a quite daunting thickness (well over 600 pages in paperback in contrast to the early ones of the series that clocked in at just over half that). It very soon became very clear to me, however, that if Nesbø writes this well, he can use as many pages as he wants to, as far as I'm concerned (or... almost, anyway). The return of Harry Hole is a very ...
  • Karen Brooks
    This is such a hard book to review because even the smallest detail about the content - the way the story unfolds (which can be very persuasive in a review) - runs the risk of spoiling what is an absolute cracker of an addition to the Harry Hole canon. All I can say is that the narrative didn't begin as I anticipated at all, even though it follows on from the events in the last book, The Leopard, and it’s this defying of expectations that sets ...

    Police is #10 in Nesbø's wonderful Harry Hole series, and by golly, it's a winner. I have read all but The Bat and Cockroaches from this series, but I don't know whether or not my guts have ever been so twisted while reading any Nesbø novel prior to this one. The suspense tempted me so many times to turn to the end, but to my credit, I didn't cheat.From the very outset, the author delights in playing with your head. In a guarded hospital room, ...

    What you want, what you crave, what you need. Sometimes it’s hard to tell them apart. Phantom left me slightly distraught, certain that Harry Hole was no more. What? No more Harry? But after a few days I got over it, and even started to see it as a brilliant way to finish the series. I’ve been thinking for a while that more authors should have the courage to kill off, or at least retire, their characters when the time is right. And the time w...

    Δηλώνοντας από την πρώτη σειρά ότι δεν είμαι οπαδός του Νέσμπο (είναι καλός, αλλά υπάρχουν πολλοί και πολύ καλύτεροι), να πω ότι τελειώνοντας την "Αστυνομία" δεν μπορώ να καταλήξω αν μου άρεσε ή όχι (γι' αυτό και τα τρία αστέρια). Αρνητικά:Έμπλεξε πολ...

    Κλασικός και πολύ καλός ο Νέσμπο και στην Αστυνομία. Στο ίδιο στυλ με τα προηγούμενα βιβλία του. Αν και νομίζω ότι σε αυτό το βιβλίο ‘’παίζει περισσότερο με τους αναγνώστες. Τους οδηγεί λοιπόν, με τον τρόπο που γράφει, σε συμπεράσματα, τα οποία τα ...

    Hule se vratio na velika vrata. Dugu sam pauzu napravio od poslednjeg romana i sad se pitam zasto.Dosta wtf momenata u ovom nastavku, kraj odlican. Hule po starom sto se tice posla, malo se kao unormalio sto se tice privatnog. Moramo po sledeci deo, ne vredi cekati.
