Phantom is not the typical Harry Hole novel, going in a slightly different direction than his previous books. Harry Hole is 3 years sober 🎉🎉, and back in Oslo working to solve a crime his son is believed to have committed.

Phantom is all about addiction; the devastation of drugs and the ends people will go to, to fulfill their cravings. And it ends on a serious cliffhanger.

Jeannineth It must be hard to be in law enforcement. I would think addiction, violence, and suicide are prevalent. I read The Snowman last year and enjoy Harry Hole but have not picked up another book by this author. 12mo
4thhouseontheleft @Jeannineth I have been reading the series in order the last few months. And what you say is so true...addiction is more prevalent in high-stress jobs. My husband is a surgeon, and the healthcare field has one of the highest rates of drug and alcohol abuse as far as professions go. 12mo

Cinfhen Jo Nesbo is a musician????? Really???!! Cool 12mo
4thhouseontheleft @Cinfhen Yep! He‘s the main vocalist for the Norwegian rock band Di Derre. It kind of explains all the musical references in his books! 12mo

Did the twice daily walk to and from school today, and one power yoga class. Hoping to reach my daily 10,000 step goal by the end of the night while putting away laundry. 😃 Didn‘t listen to my #audiobook today, but I did spend a lot of time reading the tagged book.

And had a really great sleep last night! I almost never get that much sleep.

Kaye That‘s great. I‘m glad this is helping with your sleep too . 👍🏼. Good number of steps ! 12mo
4thhouseontheleft @kaye the good sleep had more to do with the fact that no cats curled up next to my head last night. 😂😂😂 which is rare, in the winter! But you are right that exercise often helps with sleep! 12mo

It‘s Friday afternoon, 2 hours till school pick-up and I am plopping on the couch and not getting up until 2:45! Let‘s see how much progress I can make on my #currentread.

I am really liking this one, mainly because Nesbø brought Rakel and Oleg back into the story. #seriesread

Lazy day lunch with a GF English muffin and lox. I‘m craving bagels, and needed some kind of substitute so I don‘t raid Maya‘s bagel supply. ? #booksandlunch

Back to Jo Nesbø! #seriesread

catebutler This look delicious! One of my favourite combinations on a bagel! I haven‘t tried it on an muffin though, I should give it a try! (edited) 12mo
4thhouseontheleft @catebutler It was good! But it was missing capers. I didn‘t have any. I‘m super picky with bagels, and can‘t get a decent GF one where I live. (edited) 12mo

It's a while since my last journey into the world of harry hole. This was ok for a holiday read as harry returns to oslo when his former lovers son is accused of a murder. the plot was good but towards the end i simply couldn't believe his survival skills.

Reggie Last summer, I took on the series because I wanted to go watch the movie, The Snowman. I made it all through the series to The Snowman, and then I didn‘t watch the movie. Lololol I do think he is a bit sexist. 1y
andrew61 @Reggie you didn't miss anything reggie, it was one of the worstfilms ive seen in years. 1y
Reggie @andrew61 Thanks, that‘s what I had heard. 1y

Jo Nesbo is absolutely my favorite crime fiction writer and I have a crush on character Harry Hole. Phantom has left me in a state of disbelief with more questions than answers. Now what??

Look at this beautiful Jo Nesbo's bookmark! I confess, I have a thing for bookmarks. I actually don't appreciate Nesbo's work, but I just couldn't resist ⚠️☠️

So, I finally finished this one today🎉 It took me forever and I don't know why. I liked the plot, the writing, the characters... maybe I've just had enough of crime stories! #crime #jonesbo

I've been listening to this audiobook for a couple of weeks. Kind of slow-moving and the multiple POV are a little confusing when the narrator doesn't use different voices.

hlgreenfield I love Jo Nesbo and his Harry Hole books, but they do move slowly in the beginning and are almost always super confusion until very late in the story. Still some of my favourite crime novels though! 3y
Daga I totally agree. Undoubtedly very well crafted series and all off the books are difficult to put down, not to mention what a fabulous character Harry is, but the one thing is the build up. If it could take less than 80% of the story and be a little quicker with revealing potential killer/killers Mr Nesbo would be wonderful 😊 2y
