*** stars The police urgently need Harry Hole . . . A killer is stalking Oslo's streets. Police officers are being slain at the scenes of crimes they once investigated but failed to solve. The murders are brutal, the media reaction hysterical. But this time, Harry can't help . . . For years, detective Harry Hole has been at the center of every major criminal investigation in Oslo. His dedication to his job and his brilliant insights have saved the lives of countless people. But now, with those he loves most facing terrible danger, Harry is not in a position to protect anyone, least of all himself. **** I really like Nesbo's Harry Hole series. They are sometimes a little more graphically violent than I usually like, but I have bonded with Harry and his continuing story. It took me a little while to get involved with this book because Harry is not part of the storyline at the beginning. The book opens with a great "red herring" that had me guessing for quite a while. Highly recommend the series with the caveat about the violence, but as I always say with any series start with the first book. Until now that was not possible because the first two books "The Bat" and "Cockroaches" were not published in the U.S. until 2012 and 2013 respectively. I started with the 2006 book "Redbreast". Now I can go back to the beginning.
