Grainy closed-circuit television footage shows a man walking into an Oslo bank and putting a gun to a cashier's head. He tells the young woman to count to twenty-five. When the robber doesn't get his money in time, the cashier is executed, and two million Norwegian kroner disappear without a trace. Police Detective Harry Hole is assigned to the case.

Too complicated and confusing for me, made worse by my difficulty in tracking the many Norwegian names. I'm in trouble when I cannot differentiate between male and female characters. Plus, my stepfather drank a lot so Hole's drinking turned me off.

This is book 4 in the Harry Hole Series.

Book introduces the character, Beate Lønn.

In this book there is too much going on! In my opinion, unnecessary complication of the plot with introducing many new characters, whose roll is really insignificant, and also so many unnecessary twists. But in general - interesting, Page turner, especially in the first half of narrative.

This story is too detailed and very convoluted. It is supposedly about revenge but this concept is used only as a plot device with no insight into the idea of revenge itself.

Very entertaining cop mystery. Felt fairly typical for the genre, but it definitely kept me reading and I'd like to read the next one.

This book #4 in the Detective Harry Hole series set in Oslo but it is important to read The Redbreast (#3 in the series) BEFORE you read this one because of logical linkages among the books; this one’s a wonderfully-interwoven story involving a couple of murder investigations; only small problem is that things in the final 30 pages seemed to me to get a bit muddled but maybe it was clearly written and I just did not understand or was tired but couldn’t stop reading.

A great read. Not as strong as The Snowman, but a building point that leads up to the growth this writer went through.
