A new, unread, unused book in perfect condition with no missing or damaged pages.
A fantastically gripping thriller from the best-selling author of The Swman. Christmas shoppers stop to hear a Salvation Army concert on a crowded Oslo street. A gunshot cuts through the music and the bitter cold: one of the singers falls dead, shot in the head at point-blank range. Harry Hole--the Oslo Police Department's best investigator and worst civil servant--has little to work with: suspect, weapon, and motive. But Harry's troubles will multiply. As the search closes in, the killer becomes increasingly desperate, and Harry's chase takes him to the most forbidden corners of the former Yugoslavia. Yet it's when he returns to Oslo that he encounters true darkness: among the homeless junkies and Salvationists, eagerly awaiting a savior to deliver them from misery--whether he brings new life or immediate death. With its shrewdly vertigius narrative, acid-etched characters, and white-hot pace, The Redeemer is resounding proof of Jo Nesbo's standing as one of the best crime writers of our time.
