This is a great step up from a mystery serving just as entertainment Though some might quibble over whether Nesbo should be shelved with literature , I felt like I was treated to a serious tour of complex social issues As pointed out so well by Harry Roolaart here on Goodreads, the new genre of Nordic Noir can often tagged as natural realism with its coverage of the failing side of the progressive dream of these counties to become an egalitarian paradise Here the topics include the problems of drug addiction and prostitution and the hidden crimes among certain leading members of the society, in this case the vaunted Salvation Army As usual with crime fiction, we become invested with the mission of the detective to serve as a proxy physician to address the ills of society In this case, our hero Harry Hole has to deal with whether he is willing to assume the The Redeemer Is The Fourth In The Harry Hole Series To Be Translated Into EnglishA Mixture Of Religion, Urban Misery, Modern European History And Grisly Horror Story, The Redeemer Takes The Crime Writing Of Jo Nesb To Yet Another Level, Establishing Him Firmly As One Of The International Top Names In Crime Fiction Through Snow Swept, Christmas Illuminated Oslo Town, Inspector Harry Hole Chases A Faceless Contract Killer From The Former Yugoslavia Among The Homeless Junkies, Perverts And Salvationists, Eagerly Waiting For A New Saviour To Deliver Them From Misery Whether He Brings New Life Or Immediate DeathA Year Old Girl Is Raped At One Of The Salvation Army Summer Camps Twelve Years Later, At A Christmas Concert In A Square In Oslo, A Salvation Army Soldier Is Executed By A Man In The Crowd A Press Photographer Has Caught A Suspect On One Of The Photos Of The Concert Beate L Nn, The Identification Expert, Is Confused By How The Face Can Change From One Photo To The Next Inspector Harry Hole S Search For The Faceless Man Takes Place On The Seamy Side Of The City, Among Those Who Seek Eternal Or Just Momentary Redemption And The Gunman Has Not Yet Completed His Mission 3.
