And now for something a little bit different..... We've never done a crime novel before but this one is acclaimed as a best of genre - so how better to try something new? Here's the blurb:

A report of a rare gun - a type favoured by assassins - being smuggled into the country sparks Detective Harry Hole's interest. Then a former WW2 Nazi sympathizer is found with his throat cut. Next, Harry's former partner is murdered. Why had she been trying to reach Harry on the night she was killed?

As Harry's investigation unfolds, it becomes clear that the killer is hell-bent on serving his own justice. And while the link between the cases remains a mystery, one thing is certain: he must be stopped.

"Norway's finest crime writer... Nesbo clearly demonstrates his skill at executing expertly-crafted, well-paced thrillers that he sustains to the very end in a compelling fashion. As first novels go, The Redbreast and The Devil's Star are as accomplished as any reader is likely to experience" (Daily Express)

"A page-turner you won't want to put down" (Time Out)

"A complex, utterly captivating story" (Evening Standard)

P.S. - this is a long one - don't start it at the last minute!!
