The Thirst
The Thirst: A Harry Hole Novel | Jo Nesbo
#1 International Best Seller In this electrifying new thriller from the author of Police and The Snowman, Inspector Harry Hole hunts down a serial murderer who targets his victims . . . on Tinder. The murder victim, a self-declared Tinder addict. The one solid cluefragments of rust and paint in her woundsleaves the investigating team baffled. Two days later, theres a second murder: a woman of the same age, a Tinder user, an eerily similar scene. The chief of police knows theres only one man for this case. But Harry Hole is no longer with the force. He promised the woman he loves, and he promised himself, that hed never go back: not after his last case, which put the people closest to him in grave danger. But theres something about these murders that catches his attention, something in the details that the investigators have missed. For Harry, its like hearing the voice of a man he was trying not to remember. Now, despite his promises, despite everything he risks, Harry throws himself back into the hunt for a figure who haunts him, the monster who got away. STARRED REVIEW "Exceptional . . . Nesbo depicts a heartbreakingly conflicted Harry, who both wants to forget the horrors hes trying to prevent and knows he has to remember them in all their grim detail." --Publishers Weekly

Woohoo! I am fully caught up on this series. Which is an extremely rare event. 😃😃

I am definitely ready for a break from crime novels. It was a bad idea to finish this right before going to sleep last night. 😱

✅ 11/11 books read in Harry Hole series

TheSpineView Excellent!😊 11mo
AnneCecilie He has written a new Hole book that comes out in June in Norway. So the English translation is probably also out around that time. 11mo
4thhouseontheleft @AnneCecilie I know! At least when it comes out, I will be caught up! That‘s what I mean by ‘finished‘. 😃 11mo
AnneCecilie @4thhouseontheleft I still have some catching up to do. Think I‘ve only read the first four books. 11mo

I‘m so happy to have some extra reading time today! Hoping to make a serious dent in this book. Loading up on a healthy breakfast to recover from some unhealthy weekend eating: Engine 2 Power Up Oatmeal with a ton of fruit thrown on top! 🥭 🍓
#booksandbreakfast

kstadt929 Yum! I want that oatmeal! 11mo
4thhouseontheleft @kstadt929 I have to toss in a ton of my favorite fruit to offset the sugar free and dairy free aspect (I use almond milk). 😃 11mo
saresmoore I commend you for eating unsweetened oatmeal! I can‘t do it without a splash of honey or maple syrup. But, tell me about this oatmeal brand, please? 11mo
4thhouseontheleft @saresmoore I also find it really hard to eat without honey! A big handful of fruit does help give it the sweetness I crave. I buy the oatmeal at Whole Foods. Our WF does heavy promotion of the Engine Diet, which I don‘t follow, but I do love their oatmeal! https://engine2diet.com/blog/food/rips-power-up-bowl-organic-double-berry-hot-ce... 11mo

Screw chores (I did do one load of laundry), it‘s sunny and warm enough for bare feet and reading in the chaise lounge and hammock! I am going to enjoy this while it lasts!

Rcoco Sounds glorious. Are you a nesbo fan? I tried to read “Macbeth” and I just couldn‘t take it. Wondering if others are better 11mo
4thhouseontheleft @rcoco I am, although some are a bit gorier than I like. I started with Redbreast, which I think is one of his best. This is the last book in the series, I think Macbeth is one of his stand-alone books. (edited) 11mo

Over the past month, after rereading the entire ACOTAR series, I needed to trade fantasy for reality. So I chose my dear (and bloody) Jo Nesbø.

I love this series so much and I really hope we get another. There were a couple of small things I had problems with but nothing to keep me from reading the series again, which I have every intention of doing. Harry Hole is my favorite asshole.

Read this on holiday in Norway and stayed where the book is set 🙈 loved this book, the first Jo Nesbo book I have read and really liked it 🙌🏼 at times I felt like the story was dragged out but the ending was the best part of the book as it was so unexpected.

"You have a responsibility that stretches beyond those closest to you. You have to be there for people who aren't so close. And I have no right to demand that you let them all down. The fact that murder cases are like a drug to you doesn't change that."

The latest in Jo Nesbo's Harry Hole series. Nesbo is my favorite crime fiction writer. I wanna know him. I wanna know Harry. The writing is so good I feel like I could actually meet Harry. So much good stuff here. I can't get enough!!

LaurenAsh I love this series, especially because of Harry! 3y
MaryAnn1 @Beckys_Books , what a provocative question! 🤔 3y
MaryAnn1 @LaurenAsh , it bothers me that Harry's "unattractiveness" is always mentioned because I think he's sexy as hell! ? 3y

This is an excellent series with character and time progression. Hole is a man obsessed both with alcohol and murder. He's finally kicked both booze, is now teaching at the police academy and is happily married. But the one murderer who got away draws him back. These are complex in both plot and character development. I really should have reread the last book or found a wiki page with an in depth summary.

Excellent addition to the series. Nesbo writes dark crime novels like no one else and this one held the tension at a fever pitch from the first chapter to the last.

I've devoured the Harry Hole series. On Audiobooks its kept me entertained through thousands of miles of driving. I worried though that either Jo Nesbo would call time on Harry or fail to maintain the standards we've come to expect.

Delighted to say The Thirst brings Harry back and he's almost happy, would you believe? There's no sign of Jo Nesbo getting stale either. So much to like and to shudder at; it's hardly a spoiler to say so much death!

Simona Welcome to the Litsy and a lot of fun❣️ 3y

I went to see Jo Nesbo tonight! He drew a huge crowd, so we were many rows away from him even though I got there pretty early to secure seats.

He definitely appeals to the older demographic, too. I was one of the youngest people there by a fair margin, and one of very few people who hadn't read him yet. (My dad's a big fan, so I went to keep him company.) I'd like to remedy that, though, because he's an interesting fellow indeed.

MarriedtoMrT From that angle and with those glasses I thought maybe it was Bono before I read your post. I'm also horrible at celebrity sighting type things so maybe I'm the only one to think that. 😬 3y
xicanti @MarriedtoMrT I knew he reminded me of someone, but I've got terrible facial recognition so I didn't connect him with Bono until you mentioned it! 3y
Bklover The Snowman was a good Nesbo book. (And yes he does look like Bono in the pic) 3y

Nesbo is back to his greatest with this one. Harry Hole is as enigmatic as ever; and the crime is complex and gory. What more could you ask for?

Peterfox123 I binged on this book. Couldn't leave it alone. Harry Hole is one of the most compelling flawed heroes and Jo Nesbo doesn't seem to be running short of plot lines for him. 3y
ClairesReads @Peterfox123 me too! So glad Harry Hole is still going strong! 3y

What a thriller - and a long one. Just when the mystery appeared to be solved, a new twist would appear and the story continued. I liked the new characters that Nesbo introduced in this book - especially Anders and Mona - hopefully they'll appear in the next book.

Are there any Harry Hole fans in here? The 11th book came out yesterday and guess what was in my mail today? You probably guessed it 😀 Since I've only read the first four books, it might take a while for me to get to this
