Die Fährte // Nemesis!!!
Die Fährte: Harry Holes vierter Fall - Jo Nesbø

German and english review
First things first: I received this book through NetGalley.


Inhalt: Der Osloer Kriminalbeamte Harry Hole jagt einen Bankräuber, der während eines Überfalls scheinbar grundlos eine junge Angestellte erschoss. Da wird er selbst in einen Mordfall verwickelt: seine ehemalige Geliebte wird tot aufgefunden, und Harry ist der Letzte, der sie leben sah. Er gerät nun selbst unter Mordverdacht und muss untertauchen, um auf eigenen Faust weiterermitteln zu können. Eine heiße Fährte führt in bis nach Südamerika.


Ich fand es ein bisschen schwieriger als sonst, in das Buch reinzufinden, vorallem weil ich es gleich nach dem letzten Buch angefangen hatte und einfach noch so wütend wegen Ellen war und einfach nicht darüber hinwegkommen wollte, was im Band davor passiert ist. Vor allem war ich jedes Mal wütend wenn Tom Waaler in dem Buch aufgetaucht ist, alles was er im Band vorher gemacht hat und alels was er in diesem Fall getan hat, ich war einfach zu wütend.


Dann die Tatsache, dass wir zwei Fälle hatten. Den Bankraub und Anna.
Ich war stellenweise dann wirklich total verwirrt, welcher Zeuge wegen welchem Fall befragt wurde. Es war mir manchmal einfach ein bisschen zu viel los. Allerdings waren beide Fälle wirklich spannend gemacht und hatten auch genug Wendungen, so dass ich absolut nicht wusste, was gerade was ist und wer was angestellt haben könnte. Es war bis zum Ende einfach sehr spannend.


Und dann mein absolutes Highlight, Beate. Und sie lebt noch. Sie hat das Buch überlebt. Was nicht so selbstverständlich ist, wenn man an andere weibliche Charaktere in den Büchern vorher denkt. Beate!!! ich hoffe, dass wir sie auch noch in weiteren Büchern sehen werden, denn sie ist mir ehrlich ans Herz gewachsen.




Summary: How do you catch a killer when you're the number one suspect? A man is caught on CCTV, shooting dead a cashier at a bank. Detective Harry Hole begins his investigation, but after dinner with an old flame wakes up with no memory of the past 12 hours. Then the girl is found dead in mysterious circumstances and he begins to receive threatening emails: is someone trying to frame him for her death? As Harry fights to clear his name, the bank robberies continue with unparalleled savagery...


I had a bit of trouble getting really into the book, mostly because I started it right after I finished the book before and I was still so angry about Ellen and I couldn't and didn't wanna get over what happened to her. Everytime I read Tom Waaler's name in the book, I got angry all over again, angry about what he had done in the book before and everything he did in this book.


Then we had two cases. The bank case and Anna.
To be completely honest, I got super confused sometimes and couldn't remember which witness got questioned for what case. Sometimes it just got a bit too much. BUT, both cases where super well done and had enough twists and turns, that I could never figure out what really happened and who did what. It was suspenseful until the end.


And then, my absolute highlight, Beate. And she is still alive. She survived the book. That is not a sure thing, when I think about all the female characters before her. Beate!!! I really hope we get to see her in the other books two, cause I love her and I want her around.

Nemesis - Don Bartlett,Jo Nesbø I don’t know how how to describe what I feel at the end of the book!

I know exactly what I felt at the beginning of [b:Nemesis|3522419|Nemesis (Harry Hole, #4)|Jo Nesbø|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1327312660s/3522419.jpg|3023538] (and through three quarters of the plot):

I thought, it was one of the best mystery books I ever read.

And then...the final spurt towards the finishing line...and...my initial sensations about my reading orgasm went rapidly downwards. And, believe or not, I finished it, if not confused, but more conflicted than I'd like to.


The Book#4 in the series is VERY VERY complex. Many many things happen here.

It has both, advantages and disadvantages.
The goody: it won’t leave you time to catch a breath, the plot pacing is EXTREMELY fast. Less good: the plot is very scattered and demands a lot of brain work (don't even try to read it at work, between the meetings, very challenging). As a reader, you need to digest A LOT of information, while the focus of the story keeps on changing CONSTANTLY. And toward the end the author intensifies this effect, starting LITERALLY to jump from one scene to another.


Strangely enough, but I found it actually pretty refreshing and thrilling, while reading the first 80%, and then, instead of being complex and multilayered the story-line turned into over-complicated and incomprehensible.

My biggest irritation is the resolving of two running cases. Not the fact that they were resolved, and for sure not the fact that it was Harry who did the whole job (bless him!), but the way the perpetrators scheduled their plans (REALLY?!), and a very weird extravagant WAY to fulfill their plans. Very confusing, utterly improbable and very soap-opera-like.Self-staging suicide was my biggest problem. I don't buy it. No way.

The final thoughts:

Jo Nesbo is a very talented author, and he is getting better and better with every installment. It is just so...I have very high exceptions for his works, maybe I became a bit more critical and a bit less reasonable and a bit more bitchy and a bit less logical, but it was 10 stars for me for the first half of the book, and not more than 3 towards the end.

I can't wait to read the next sequel though. Does it explain my critical mood?!

***And of course I want to read it only with my girls! BR with Sofia and Alona

The Snowman, Nemesis, The Devil's Star, The Redbreast
The Snowman, Nemesis, The Devil's Star, The Redbreast - Jo Nesbø Σύνθετο και μπερδεμένο το συγκεκριμένο βιβλίο της σειράς, πολύ περισσότερο από τον [b:Κοκκινολαίμη|17470502|Ο κοκκινολαίμης (Χάρι Χόλε, #3)|Jo Nesbø|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1424633969s/17470502.jpg|1487876], με πολλές δευτερεύουσες πλοκές πέραν της κεντρικής, με άπειρα red herrings, παραπλανητικά δηλαδή στοιχεία, και με τον κεντρικό χαρακτήρα να βρίσκει τους ρυθμούς του ολοένα κι ευκολότερα, παίρνοντας πλέον σάρκα και οστά. Καλογραμμένο κι ευχάριστο.

Review: Sovereign
Sovereign: Nemesis - Book Two - April Daniels

While the end of this one is great, the journey to get there was far less enjoyable than the previous book, Dreadnought.


Danny is pretty angry throughout this book, and while I understand it, the fact that it's a first person POV really didn't work for me. Her perceptions of so many things are so far off base that it was difficult to get through some sections. And she makes some really poor decisions, usually erring on the side of starting a fight when stopping to listen would have benefits. 


I'd read another book set in this universe, I think, but I'll be fine leaving here as well.
