FROM THE AUTHOR OF THE SNOWMAN - OVER 9 MILLION BOOKS SOLD WORLDWIDE THE MARK OF THE DEVIL, THE SIGN OF A KILLER... A young woman is murdered in her flat and a tiny red diamond in the shape of a five-pointed star is found behind her eyelid. Detective Harry Hole is assigned to the case, alongside his long-time adversary Tom Waaler and initially wants no part in it. But Harry is already on his final warning and has little alternative but to drag himself out of his alcoholic stupor when it becomes apparent that Oslo has a serial killer on its hands.

About the Author

Jo Nesb is a musician, songwriter, economist and author. His first crime novel featuring Harry Hole was published in Norway in 1997 and was an instant hit, winning the Glass Key Award for best Nordic crime novel (an accolade shared with Peter H eg, Henning Mankell and Karin Fossum). Another of the series was recently voted best Norwegian crime novel of all time by Norwegian readers. The Devil's Star is the first of his novels to be translated into English

Reviews

"The next Stieg Larsson" Independent "Nesbo sets a cracking pace... A series of spectacular plot twists leads to a thrilling finale. Highly recommended" Guardian "Compelling... Shocking and surprising...expertly paced" The Times "Many authors know how to make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up. Jo Nesbo's one of the few who keeps them there" -- Lindwood Barclay "An astonishingly confident debut. The Devil's Star scores with an intriguing plot and Nesbo's mastery of pace and tension" The Times

I didn't know of Jo Nesbo previously and couldn't get enough of this book. My only personal problem was, after reading as much as time permitted, I lost a bit of momentum and had to reread a few previous pages to get back into it. If you're lucky enough to read it in one go it will be even better.

I've ordered more of Jo Nesbo and will eventually get his entire catalogue. I have read the three Stieg Larsson books and, remembering this is the only Jo Nesbo I have read to date, I beleive this author to be better.
