    1. It was clear the book had been read up to page 149 crumbs between the pages, the occasional squashed insect but after page 150 the rest of the book was pristine, the spine was uncreased We got a reasonable set of prints from the cover and ran them though the database of usual suspects We got an immediate hit they belonged to Paul Bryant, who we knew from a lot of smart aleck stuff on We picked him up at 11.30 am on Tuesday hanging around Waterstones He didn t give us any trouble We took him down [...]

    2. Reading Jo Nesbo a reader quickly realizes that Nesbo is always capable of producing a good book, but also has in him the ability to write a great book Nesbo s 2000 Harry Hole book The Redbreast is an example of Nesbo s writing at its best.His 2014 novel The Son is another example.First of all, this is NOT a Harry Hole novel The Son is a stand alone book that centers around protagonist Sonny Lofthus, a convicted murderer and heroin addict We find Sonny in prison and the reader quickly learns tha [...]

    6. SANGUE E NEVEStavo leggendo un libro che procedeva con pi lentezza del solito, forse, addirittura, con fatica Allora, ho preso questo mio primo Nesb , tanto per alternare letture, sapendo che il norvegese se non altro sarebbe stato pi scorrevole.Poi, per , successo che l ho aperto venerd pomeriggio e l ho richiuso domenica notte, 542 pagine dopo Non sono riuscito a metterlo gi Non sono riuscito a chiuderlo fino alla fine, il progetto di alternare la lettura fallito miseramente.OsloQuello che lo [...]

    7. I confess beginning The Son with a healthy degree of skepticism, I was continually trying to second guess the rationale for writing a police thriller sans everyone s favorite detective Suffice to say I think my question was answered by the end of the novel you won t be disappointed to pick up this book While there are some similarities with the classic series, such as a flawed detective hero, Kripos fighting with the local crime squad I guess its no different from the cliche of FBI taking over t [...]

    8. I have read every book in Jo Nesb s Harry Hole series and enjoyed them all so I decided it was time to try his stand alone books too It was a good decision.The Son is like a Harry book but with other police instead of Harry Except of course the main character is an anti hero who you spend most of the book rooting for If Harry had been there then Sonny would not have stood a chance There were so many twists and turns in this story that I almost lost track of what was happening but enjoyed the act [...]

    10. 3.5 stars rated up This was my first experience with a Jo Nesb novel and it definitely won t be the last I won t lie, this book has been on my TBR for years and I have no idea why I neglected to pick it up The synopsis pulled me in back when I first came across this novel and I knew it would be something that I would most likely love, but for whatever reason, I just never felt like picking it up until recently.I don t think I have ever read a book that took place in Norway before and with Oslo b [...]

    11. Righteous Novel of Revenge With Noisy Mating Sounds and Many Loud Mating Noises Mating Dance of American Southern Redneck Maleadapted from Australian outbackA righteous novel of revenge that races toward a feverish conclusion, by startling bends, dazzling drops, and some jerks and jolts past a few stun grenades The story is a bit far fetched though and ties together too tidily to have the terrific ring of realism that surrounds the great thrillers.Hilarious, unrealistic translation from Norwegia [...]

    14. Book ReviewThe Son, the latest stand alone by Jo Nesbo is about a passionate, festering and pointless instinct Or to put it differently it s about revenge And who better to deliver revenge than our favorite deviant writer, Jo Nesbo who says of the emotion By avenging a misdeed we don t regain what we have lost, but we ensure that misdeeds have consequences that we hope can be a deterrent in the abstract future Your adversary knows that attacking your offspring has a cost, even if the attack is s [...]

    15. Although I own a slew of Nesbo s Harry Hole books, I never did know where to begin So, when this stand alone was offered, I decided to give it a go Therefore, I can t compare this to any book other than related thrillers or mysteries It held its own, and I ripped through the pages in record time just a few days , as I was riveted to the well paced narrative Nesbo did not squander character for plot the main players were well rounded and sympathetic.Sonny Lofthus, now thirty, has been in prison f [...]

    18. Gripping That is the word that I would use to describe this offering by Jo Nesb It was a difficult book to put down the urge to read just one chapter was strong.I think it is safe to say that if you enjoy Nesb s writing and or other Nordic noir fiction, you will enjoy The Son There is unrelenting action, plenty of interesting clues to keep your brain busy, a little romance just to confuse you a bit, and lots lots of bad guys, plus several characters who inhabit the gray zone of being good bad g [...]

    19. This is the second book I ve read by Jo Nesbo and I frankly couldn t get into the first I was prevailed upon by a Nesbo fan to try a different book, maybe not of the series Nesbo is well known for.I ve got to say that this is an excellent book Time and time again the plot seems to be heading one way only to shift and surprise me The characters while not all detailed are well done and throughout that book we will get to know Sonny better and better.I even got to like him Which can seem a bitweird [...]

    22. Jo Nesbo n 1960 O noruegu s Jo Nesbo n 1960 um dos meus escritores de policiais favorito entre a credibilidade dos enredos e a marginalidade das personagens incluindo, o inspector Harry Hole h um talento narrativo e um desenvolvimento das hist rias que acaba sempre por valorizar a singularidade da trama ou a excentricidade da sua intriga Num bom livro policial nem sempre me interessa, exclusivamente, a imprevisibilidade do enredo como acontece, em O Filho , mas antes a descri o de sistemas polic [...]

AudibleWellNow I know There ARE corrupted cops in Norway andfia I mean, if it were a novel set in Italy, Russia, Latin America or even USA, no one would have been surprised But Norway REALLY Oh YES They are the worst Believe me Or at least I blindly ate up the whole story, and I am NOT GOING to question ANYTHING here I sat on the edge of my seat and went almost crazy because the tension in many situations was UNBEARABLE I got grey hair, that s for sure.But what a great story, what an excellent [...]

    25. 3.5 StarsWhenever I read a Jo Nesbo book, it has some great, thrilling parts and some interesting plot twists But, it also has a lot of slower parts and places where I am confused about what exactly is going on The Son was not an exception.Each little anecdote about The Son and the details of view spoiler each revenge hide spoiler was great But, the overall plot about the view spoiler mole, drug trade, and corruption hide spoiler was kind of convoluted, confusing, and sometimes boring.I wouldn t [...]

    26. After reading and thoroughly enjoying Nesbo s Headhunters, I dived into this one my second Nesbo book I almost gave up on it at chapter ten Too many characters introduced too quickly, and too much chopping and changing from one scenario to another Something, however, made me give it a little time and by chapter 13 I was hooked to the point where I struggled to put it down The characters just grew on me, I guess, and I needed to see where it was going to end up.You almost lost me, Mr Nesbo, but [...]

It s becoming a bit of a habit to turn up at Gatwick for a flight and discover a new Jo Nesbo on airport exclusive The Son is a standalone book from Nesbo, not a Harry Hole novel, and I managed to read it round the pool in Gran Canaria, to avoid having to cart the oversize paperback on the tube And what an enjoyable read it was A thoroughly likeable protagonist in Sonny and a little darkly humourous than the Hole series, I whipped through The Son in a couple of days I guessed who the mole was f [...]
