Nemesis
Nemesis | Jo Nesbo
Grainy CCTV footage shows a man walking into a bank and putting a gun to a cashier's head. He tells her to count to twenty-five. When he doesn't get his money in time, she is executed. Detective Harry Hole is assigned to the case. While Harry's girlfriend is away in Russia, an old flame gets in touch. He goes to dinner at her house and wakes up at home with no memory of the past twelve hours. The same morning the girl is found shot dead in her bed. Harry begins to receive threatening e-mails. Is someone trying to frame him for this unexplained death? Meanwhile the bank robberies continue with unparalleled savagery. Gripping and surprising, Nemesis is the new thriller by one of the biggest stars of Scandinavian crime fiction. From the Hardcover edition.

Overall a fast paced read, but it felt like Nesbo crammed too many story lines into one book.

Good story but sooo many twists and turns. I would have been perfectly content if the story ended halfway through.

Reggie I was mad at this story because I felt it reinforced my idea that Nesbo is a chauvinist. What woman would kill herself just to get back at 3 lovers who had broken up with her. Didn‘t she have anything better to do?!!!! Lol that part totally rubbed me the wrong way. 8mo

Went to London for a family trip and managed to buy only two books. Found the Black Gull which I remembered from a trip ten years ago and bought the tagged book there.

Not as strong as The Redbreast, I didn‘t particularly like the incredibly convoluted storyline. But I am now firmly attached to the Harry Hole character, and will definitely continue with this series! #pop18 #heist

Reggie Sometimes, especially after reading this book, I wondered if Nesbo was a chauvinist. The gall of someone to think a woman would put all that energy for that crap. This book kinda made me mad. 12mo
4thhouseontheleft @Reggie I feel like so many thrillers or police procedurals written my male authors have chauvinistic or misogynistic undertones. And I agree, that storyline was frustrating. But I do like his writing. We‘ll see what the next one holds. 12mo

It‘s been a long few weeks! I was hoping to hop into bed earlier, but at least I‘m here by 9pm and I‘m not budging. I have asthma, and I am prone to secondary infections whenever I get something respiratory. I had been good for 3 years, but this month I ended up with bronchitis after a cold I picked up 3 weeks ago. It‘s been with me through Boston, the last weeks of campaign work, and starting my new class, but finally on the mend! G‘night! 🛌 😴

QuietlyLaura Sweet, healing dreams! 12mo
gradcat I liked the book, just on the off chance that you stay in bed and take care of yourself...it would be a good escape! Hope you feel better after a good night‘s sleep! 12mo

4thhouseontheleft @QuietlyLaura Thank you! I had a great night‘s sleep. @gradcat “on the off chance” 😂😂😂 I did practice good self-care last weekend. 😃 I like Nemesis, but I do think Redbreast is better. @CouronneDhiver Thanks! I started antibiotics and a steroid on Monday and I am feeling a lot better. 12mo
tracey38 Oh, hope you feel better! That happened to me earlier this year, where a cold turned into bronchitis, a sinus infection, laryngitis, pharyngitis, almost pneumonia. I worry that is happening again so I feel ya! 12mo

I‘m beginning to think that I just can‘t get to grips with Jo Nesbo‘s writing. Lots of people rave about this series but, for the most part, it‘s deadly dull. Rating: 2 ⭐️

#LitsyClassics #MayLovesClassics #day11 #Crime Crime is my genre, it‘s the one I love to read the most & it takes up most room on my shelves. It‘s such a varied genre, different nationalities bring something different to the telling, plus there‘s sub genres like cozy crime, golden age crime, police procedural, paranormal crime & scifi crime. Some readers look down their noses at crime but I love it.❤️🔪🖤

eanderson I love crime especially with the police procedurals. I‘m finding I‘m also enjoying the Australian authors too! 2y
TheBookAddict These past few years I‘ve been trying to be more diverse with my book choices, but when I was a teen and in my early 20s I was usually reading a Crime or mystery novel (unless I was reading HP). I definitely don‘t turn my nose up at it, because it‘s still one of my favorite genres and I sprinkle it here and there throughout the year. 2y
Lizpixie @TrishB @erzascarletbookgasm I say YES to #crimeclub @Bambolina_81 I liked it, unlike most though I preferred The Dry. She has a new one coming in October called The Lost Man I think. @eanderson there‘s a few Aussie crime writers I think are fantastic including Kerry Greenwood, Emma Vasic & Sulari Gentill @TheBookAddict I love Litsy coz there‘s more acceptance of what people like to read, not as many #booksnobs as some platforms☺️ 2y

This is the 4th book in the Harry Hole series. It was not my favorite so far, mainly because the plot didn‘t do much for me. I continue to really like Hole‘s character though, so I‘m looking forward to the remaining books. The synopsis of the next book sounds more up my alley! ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Irina: “This is a detective novel and a murder mystery that‘s part of a series. The story is very interesting—the characters seem very real. The detective is not a perfect hero. He has his demons and is an alcoholic. You really feel for him when he has a bad day or messes up. I like reading stories that are very different from my life. I‘m an actress-slash-waitress and I have never solved a mystery. I‘d love to have the opportunity though!”

Omg, talk about convoluted. My brain hurts from reading this book and uncrossing all the jumbled wires. A bank robbery and a fling from Harry's past set the stage for this crazy book. Does anybody else feel like Jo is a bit of a chauvinist? I'm not gonna go so far as to say he hates women but I feel like women are just props to him. I live my reading life in in constant fear for the lives of Beate and Rakel. Lol, still pressing on.

TrishB I gave up on Jo after a couple - just didn't do it for me! 2y
Reggie @TrishB so in this story, Harry is supposed to go have dinner with an ex-flame in her flat. The next morning he can't remember anything of the night before. It is discovered that the ex-flame, Anna, is dead with a bullet through her head. It turns out in the end, she committed suicide by purposely leaving clues that would indicate she had been murdered by the 3 men who happen to be the 3 ex-lovers who broke her heart, Harry included. And it👇🏼 2y
Reggie Just makes me long for other women protagonists of the area who sodomized their attacker and left them tied in their bed with the word Rapist tattooed on their belly. Where are you Lisbeth Salander???!!!!!! All the women in Jo Nesbo's books have died horrible deaths or are raped or blackmailed or commit elaborate suicides to take revenge on men. Lol where is the feminism in Norway? Idk, this whole plot just rubbed me the wrong way. 2y
TrishB @Reggie I think you summed up why I gave them up - exactly for rubbing me up the wrong way !! 2y

Sweettartlaura Get on it, @Tiffy_Reads !😜. You're in for some treats - Norwegians voted The Redbreast the best crime novel ever, & I must say, it was pretty damn good. I'm catching up on all of them this month - you should, too - the newest (after a lonnnnng break and a few other books in between) is coming out in ... September, I think. 2y

#needfulbooks Nemesis. Jo Nesbo
I enjoyed The Redbreast, and I'm struggling to understand why this one didn't quite do it for me. It read like a fairly ordinary police procedural, without any of the historical sweep of the previous book. I found the writing cliched and the plot contrived and implausible and at the same time over-complicated so that I had a real job to remember who everyone was. Not bad but not great.

OutsmartYourShelf I've just started reading this series and so far I'm not impressed. 2y
Cathythoughts I have to say I'm not a fan of Nesbo. I did read a couple of his books & in part they were good. But I don't have any desire to go back to him, not sure why 2y

Thrilling Harry Hole novel with many twists and turns. Harry has to investigation a violent bank robbery at the same time trying to clear his name from his ex girlfriends murder. Revenge is the major theme, from the name of art work to people's motives. Harry makes a lot of mistakes due to his lust for revenge which makes things worst. 8/10

booked4life @MrBook it's called Brother by Ania Ahlborn!! You should def add it! However, it's really gruesome. It's about a family of cannibals and their youngest son feels like what they're doing is wrong. His older brother takes it upon himself to remind him who he is supposed to be. It's really good!! 3y
