Pragnienie - Jo Nesbo

Moja pierwsza myśl to: "Zaraz, ale wampiryzm? Czy aby nie posuwamy się już trochę za daleko, panie Nesbo?"

 

Pan Nesbo odpowiedział mi w swoim stylu, tak wykręcając fabułę, że już nie miałem żadnych pytań.

 

"Pragnienie" nie jest może szczytowym osiągnięciem autora w moim prywatnym rankingu, ale udanie kontynuuje najlepsze tradycje cyklu. Wciąż – a to już jedenasty tom przecież – nie miałem wrażenia, że historia Harry'ego Hole'a jest przeciągana na siłę.

Dark and Stormy Square
Macbeth - Jo Nesbo

Oh, I wanted to love this.  I did.  I truly did.  But . . but.. 

 

Okay - I love the SWAT and drug use.  The witches were cool in this.

 

But I kept thinking Norway instead of Scotland which was weird, and then started wondering what Ian Rankin would have done.  And then it was -so Macbeth and Lady are basically a bad version of McLevy and Jean Brash.

 

So didn't like it.

"Phantom", by Jo Nesbo
Phantom - Don Bartlett,Jo Nesbo,Jo Nesbo

Harry Hole book #9

Jo Nesbo certainly can do plots but I found “The Phantom” to be less outlandish than some of his previous Hole novels. It is a story very hard to follow.

“Violin” is the new synthetic drug: potent and plays havoc with Oslo’s population and its distribution is controlled by a Russian gangster “Dubai” a shadowy figure who lurks behind all the action in Phantom. Of course the drug syndicate wants Oleg dead and that gives Hole license to pursue.

What a strange way to open your story: a chapter narrated by a rat? Fortunately the story unfolds through two perspectives: a conventional third-person narrative that follows Hole on his journey, interspersed with first-person memories and observations from the drug dealer.

The development rambles a lot and I found it to be a very complicated story with lots of plot threads that doesn’t seem true. This is one story that is woefully overwritten. I was consistently lost as to what and who I was supposed to be paying attention to. Unlike “Snowman” and “Leopard” it felt stale and by far less interesting. It’s also a bit slow-paced. “Phantom” took a long time to build up before anything of note happened. The second half of the book is far better structured with all the requisite twists and turns and with endless action and violence. But the good parts came too late to be an enjoyable read. This story is so hard to follow that I wanted to drop it many times….. But I stuck with it and read it to the end….I knew I needed to do so in order to have a smooth intro to the following novel.

Some stories are better than others…..this one is not my preferred.

Neuer Fall für Harry Hole
Messer: Kriminalroman (Ein Harry-Hole-Kr... Messer: Kriminalroman (Ein Harry-Hole-Krimi, Band 12) - Günther Frauenlob,Jo Nesbo

Harry Hole ist am Ende.
Die Liebe seines Lebens Rakel hat ihn verlassen, der Alkohol ist sein bester Freund und auch seine Karriere bei der Polizei liegt bracht. Als einfacher Ermittler versucht er sich irgendwie über Wasser zu halten und sein Leben weiterzuleben.

Es ist wirklich deprimierend zu sehen wie der Topermittler soweit sinken konnte. Als Harry-Fan hat man es hier wirklich nicht leicht.
Jo Nesbo weiß mit seinem Schreibstil und seinen Worten geschickt umzugehen - wie immer. Düster und Grausig ist dieser Roman. Nesbo macht es einem nicht gerade leicht das Buch zu beenden. Nicht weil die Spannung nicht mehr auszuhalten ist, sondern weil man Harry Hole nicht mehr im Selbstmitleid versinken sehen will. Er überträgt sein persönlichses Leid auf den Leser und das macht es besondern schrecklich zu lesen. Ich tat mich wirklich schwer damit und war erleichtert, als ich das Buch dann endlich geschafft hatte.
