Best Selling Books by Jo Nesbo (Harry Hole)
Harry Hole Jo Nesbos Best Seller Books
FIND HERE the list of the Harry Hole, Jo Nesbo Best Books in order. I would say Nebso is one of the best crime writers I have read, not only are they bestselling but so fantastically well written that I have become a huge fan of these detective murder mysteries. I came across Nesbo by accident as I was mulling around the airport lounge bookshop looking for a good book to take on holiday to read, and if like me you love nothing better than grabbing a towel and a book to sit in the sun and relax, then I happened across one of the best crime writers and have got the ideal books for you.
If you have read and loved Stieg Larsson's Millennium Trilogy and looking for a book to read that's similar in style. I want to introduce you to Jo Nesbo who brings us the unorthodox Policeman Harry Hole, and is fast becoming one of this years top selling authors, his books are currently featured on every bestsellers books list.
He regularly features in the Top Ten bestseller books, with his books ...and no wonder, every one is a page turner right to the last page.
***As I continue to read these books this page will become updated with reviews of each*** what I love about Nesbos series is it does not matter which order you read them in, I picked the one I was drawn to 1st and continue to read the ones that I want in the order I want to and it has made no difference. Which for an author to achieve this in a series is pretty phenomenal writing.
Redbreast -Book 1 - by Jo Nesbo - Harry Hole
An introduction into the world of Harry Hole the unorthodox Norwegian Policeman, who even with his brilliance at solving these types of crimes, struggles to catch up with the murderer or as we start to see developing is there one or more involved.
This was pretty gruesome in the fact the murders that took you back to place a culture history only known to those opposing Hitler.
Nemesis by Jo Nesbo Harry Hole Book 2
I recently finished this Harry Hole classic murder mystery, and suspense ll in one, another great from Nesbo as Harry Holes life gets twisted up in the recent Bank Robbery and Murder investigation, is he being framed.
You are really starting to understand Harry Hole now and his love of the demon Drink. This book also pushes your own boundaries of how racism is still very much alive especially in groups.
Great read and unexpected outcome
The Devil's Star by Jo Nesbo Harry Hole Book 3
On the hunt for a killer, whose killings seem to be random, Harry Hole discovers the very clever cover-up of one determined serial killer. Out to prove something, who wont stop until he is caught.
Has Harry Already Caught him and let him go?
The Redeemer by Jo Nesbo Harry Hole Book 4
Pretty shocking when you first start reading that on a crisp pre-Christmas evening celebration with families all gathered in the square, a man is shot. A man of the Salvation Army no less. But when It becomes apparent it was the wrong man that was killed. The hunt is on. Who will find who first. Great story with too many twists and turns to work out until the very end. Brilliant book By Jo Nesbo. This ranks one of my favorite. And our Dear Harry is battling with the booze again.
The Snowman Harry Hole Book 5
This first best selling book by Nesbo introduces the character Harry Hole, the unorthodox policeman, you really don't want to have chasing your tale.
Would you prefer a straight down the middle Police Man, or one with a few vices, and flaws, but would make sure to the ends of the earth he found the culprit of some of the most vicious crimes? Whether justice would be served as the law dictates or by their own law.
So when someone sends him a letter, enticing him back into the police force, they surely know they are asking for trouble, or are they just having fun with him. The Snowman is chilling, as you are unable to put down this book, now I know why they are called page turners.
As this has been translated, from Norwegian, you need to stay sharp to keep track of the characters, and their names, some which are similar, but as the book unfolds every character is carefully placed, and appears most unexpectedly. Why has the Snowman chosen Harry Hole to find him?
Even to the last chapter, when you think the crimes committed are all but solved, Nesbo manages to throw out the rod and hook you right back in, making sure you read the last page.
The Leopard Jo Nesbo Book 6
...the race is on...
I have just finished this book, and what can I tell you...apart from just read it.
From murder to suspense, to love and fatal attraction. just when you think you got it sussed, Nesbo throws it all out the water mixes it all back up whips it into a sandstorm and throws it all back at you.
Harry Hole is a down and out hiding out or actually held hostage by the Mafia in Hong Kong due to unpaid debt, but his bosses at Crime Squad HQ know he is the only one who can find this serial killer, but how many more will be killed before Harry Hole gets a grip of his shambolic life?
This book will make you ask the question are you sure every one you work with, is who they say they are? Full of corruption and unethical practices and again, with police inspector Harry Hole you just never know what's around the corner, another blinder from Jo Nesbo.

Fans await eagerly the release of the books in Film - Headhunters - Jo Nesbo
I cannot wait to see this, after reading the book, which to be fair I nearly put down within the first few pages, as it started very different to the Harry Hole books, BUT my goodness am I glad I kept reading, loved it, good twists, and just not what you would have expected from Nesbo. Must read.
