review SPOILER ALERT! 2018-01-08 00:55
Harry is after a killer with sharp teeth
The Thirst - Jo Nesbø,Neil Smith

The twist in the end keep me up and didn't let me go to sleep.

Harry was now a teacher at a Police College and not a detective any more at the start of the story. He is happily married with a stepson. 

 

Then a killer starts killing women in horrible bloody way. Katrine is now head of crime squad. Bellmen the Chief of Police. Of course Bellman would blackmail Harry to come back and solved this. 

 

Truls is being an ass and leak information to the magazine VG for money.

 

One of the hunting ground of the killer is Jealousy Bar. 

 

The story is about Thirst and Jealousy. 

 

Thirst for the bottle. Harry no longer drink and go to bar that refuse to serve him drinks. 

 

Jealousy and the wants for recognition seems to motivate people to do bad things. 

 

Then the killer revealed himself to Harry. Targeted him and draws him in the game. 

 

The tension is added when Harry thought that the killer is targeting his family. 

 

Finally, Harry figured it out.  

 

Harry now knows that man behind the killing. But there is no evidence, and the clever killer already found a scapegoat. 

 

He setup a Monkey trap for the killer to reveal himself. 

 

Just in case anyone forget what a Monkey trap is:

Of course it put Harry in danger. 

 

Read the book, it is that good.

Oh crap. Poor Harry. 

 

That Truls is really a big jerk. He leaks information again to that bitch of journalist Mona Daa and got someone kill.

 

Really? Heard of journalist integrity. You could get the story, but the timing is important. And not getting someone kill is good, or at least notify the police that the possibility that this would happen.

 

Poor Harry. Rakel is sick and Oleg is mad at him. Now he lost someone.

Harry now know who is the killer and not very happy about it.

 

He didn't discovered who he is, as the killer revealed himself through one of the victim. 

 

He was a killer that was caught before and escaped from jail 4 years ago. 

 

And he has a old friend still in jail, also caught by Harry. A scary guy who is almost out. He is a rapist who deliberately got women pregnant and forced them to have children with him. 

 

Sick. 

 

So.... Harry is now hunting a killer who knows about Harry and knows a lot of about killings. 


The problem is, this killer is more about how he kills than who he kills. 

 

So far, the writing is good and the story is fine. It is progressing nicely and Harry didn't act out of character for being a happily married man.

Jo Nesbo's The Thirst is the best crime novel
The Thirst - Jo Nesbø,Neil Smith
The Midnight Line - Lee Child
Two Kinds of Truth - Michael Connelly

I like Jo Nesbo novels. They are usually solid, with good characters building and interaction, and some plots twists. 

 

This should be no different. 

 

Looking forward to read this. Happy that this is on the best crime novel list. 

 

Another one I looked forward to is Two Kinds of Truth by Michael Connelly, Bosch going undercover would be interesting. 

 

Then it is Midnight Line by Lee Child, another Jack Reacher story.
