Présentation de l'éditeur

FROM THE AUTHOR OF THE SNOWMAN - OVER 9 MILLION BOOKS SOLD WORLDWIDE

THE MARK OF THE DEVIL, THE SIGN OF A KILLER...

A young woman is murdered in her flat and a tiny red diamond in the shape of a five-pointed star is found behind her eyelid. Detective Harry Hole is assigned to the case, alongside his long-time adversary Tom Waaler and initially wants no part in it.

But Harry is already on his final warning and has little alternative but to drag himself out of his alcoholic stupor when it becomes apparent that Oslo has a serial killer on its hands.

Format: Broché
Les livres The Redbreast, Nemesis et The Devil's Star forment la trilogie d'Oslo, dans cet ordre. The Devil's Star est partiellement une continuation de ce qui c`est passé dans The Redbreast. Même si The Devil's Star est tout à fait compréhensible sans avoir lu l'un des autres, il reste préférable de lire au moins The Redbreast avant.
Par rapport à ce dernier, je trouve the Devil's Star moins fort dans sa fin. L'écrivain est très fort en laissant le lecteur cogiter longtemps sur l'enigme à resoudre et en donnant les informations pertinents en compte de goute. À la fin de l'histoire, quand l'action prend le dessus, le suspense reste très captivant, mais les dangers et les choix à faire pour les protagonistes ne sont pas bien élaborés. Par conséquent, le lecteur ne peut plus anticiper le déroulement dans cette fin du livre, qui en reste moins réaliste que le début et que la fin de The Redbreast.
Néanmoins je peux vivement recommander ce livre.

Bon polar pour découvrir Nesbo - mais un peu trop à l'image du plan du coupable: sans doute était-ce voulu? En tout cas ce roman n'a pas le souffle de The Leopard qui lui est grandiose!

Hot Summer, Torrid Crime Fiction 27 septembre 2008
Par Gary Griffiths - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche Achat vérifié
When it comes to crime fiction, I'm not an easy mark. I look for intricate but credible plots, well-developed characters, richly drawn settings, and lean dialog that compliments and develops the story, the characters and the setting, rather than as a misplaced prop which tries to make the hero some kind of cross between Chris Rock and Dirty Harry. So when I say that you should do whatever it takes to find a copy of Jo Nesbo's "The Devil's Star", and "The Redbreast" that precedes it, trust me that is worth the extra effort and extra bucks. (Neither of these novels, originally published in Norway and later translated to English by Don Bartlett and published in England are easily - or cheaply - found).

"The Devil's Star" starts brilliantly - the journey of a drop of water through a century-old Oslo apartment building that ends with one of the most original renderings of a murder discovery that I can remember. This cleverly told opening sets a literary and mystery high bar that never lets up and never betrays the author's implicit promise to the reader of an intelligent, complex, and appropriately brutal Scandinavian crime masterpiece. It is an unusually hot summer in Oslo, and most of the population, including the police force, is on holiday when a young woman is found dead in her apartment - one finger short and a red star-shaped diamond inserted under an eyelid. Harry Hole, the renegade Oslo inspector introduced in "The Redbreast" is assigned to the case with his nemesis, top brass-favorite Tom Waaler. To say the Hole has fallen on hard times is like observing Norwegian winters may get chilly - he is in an alcoholic stupor, despondent, suicidal, barely functional, and alone - the result of his obsession with the crimes he's certain Waaler committed in the preceding novel. When a second body shows up, similarly desecrated and adorned, it is feared that Oslo has a serial killer on their hands, setting the stage for an epic tale of crime and deception, of demons real and demons imagined.

Nesbo's Harry Hole is the maverick cop we've all seen many times before - unconventional and anti-bureaucracy, an alcoholic who is perpetually one step or one day or one punch away from a forced retirement. But from the talented Nesbo's pen, Hole takes on depth and baggage beyond the common - the tragic hero whose obsessions win the reader's empathy while driving those close to him further away while his unorthodox methods and atypical supporting cast unravel the puzzle - or in this case, a veritable smorgasbord of puzzles. For in a somewhat unusual twist, unresolved and nearly forgotten threads of "Redbreast" show up here, where they are taken decidedly and decisively to truly chilling, suspenseful, and ultimately redeeming conclusion.

So like I mentioned - this is crime fiction about as good as it gets. Intelligent and convoluted in a totally consumptive way, with twists and turns and clever head fakes - that rare novel that will have you scratching your head and re-reading passages - fiction that will have you rushing to get to the end while hoping it never does. Do yourself a favor and find a copy of both of Nesbo's translated works - if you're like me you'll be hoping this talented young author keeps writing and finds a US publisher.

a phenomenal thriller -- great plot and characters 11 juillet 2006
Par Southern Train - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
This is a complex thriller set in Norway with an unusually intricate plot and an exceptionally well developed main character --I purchased this in Scotland and finished it within a little more than a day. This is is in the same genre as the stories written by Henning Mankell in the Kurt Wallender series. I would rate this story dealing with a serial killer on a par with Mankell's best. The suspense grinds away and the plot has multiple twists which keep the reader constantly on edge. I am purposely writing a very general review so as not to give away the many twists of this great mystery --it just never lets up and the quality of the writing is superb. This is a s[pecial accomplishment as the story is translated into English. This book far surpasses writings by Michael Connelly, James Lee Burke and even some of Mankell's work.

The Devil's Star - Jo Nesbø 16 janvier 2010
Par Andrea Bowhill - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
Extra Information: The first two books for this Harry Hole series The Bat Man and The Cockroaches have not been produced for translation at this time. The Redbreast: A Novel would be the third book in this series; if you were to start this series my recommendation would be from The Redbreast. The series then follows through in order with Nemesis: A Novel (Harry Hole) The Devil's Star and finally The Redeemer (A Harry Hole Mystery) which then brings us readers to all things wintry, dark days, sub zero temperatures, icy chills, the release of The Snowman March 2010.

Review - The Devil's Star (Harry Hole Fifth book)

The Devil's Star is a contemporary modern day crime plot with all its darker elements, filled with emotion, fast paced, suspenseful, the puzzle grips, builds, festers and twists keeping the mind ticking over until the very end. The author Jo Nesbø brings us into his opening scene, Oslo, current day a young women has been found murdered in her Oslo flat, shot, Index finger removed and a curious tiny diamond shaped like a five pointed star placed behind her eyelid. An unsteady Detective Harry Hole is sent over to investigate the situation. Days later another young women goes missing in broad daylight no body found, but Bjarne Møller Harry's boss receives her severed finger in the post. Only when a third womens body is found with the same signature as victim one, severed finger, small five pointed star behind the eye, the investigation turns quickly into a serial killer hunt.

Harry's pervious assignment working for sometime on the Ellen Gjelten case his ex murdered partner, but to no advance, finally case closed but not to Harry he had departmental suspicions but lacked any proof forcing him once again to fall deeply off the wagon. Bjarne Møller who had saved Harry's job so many times had no choice but to tell him final notice was to be served but first with holiday staffing issues, he'd be placed on the serial killer case as priority before he left. The situation was about to get worst as his partnered with Tom Waaler the police forces golden-boy, there are no alternatives. With a serial killer at large personal issues needed to be put to one side, even with Harry's darker state of mind he functions better under pressure and was onto a new lead, he has nothing to lose and his presence makes others feel unnerved, more than one person is about to lose control.

As the saying goes "Things happen in threes" great things in the form of The Redbreast, Nemesis and here we have my personal favorite The Devil's Star, fifth book in this series this is certainly a book that really makes you think and question which is what I love. My thoughts even wondered If the author wrote subconsciously, Intentional or it could just be a fantastic coincidence or fate, book numbering and story-line? The Devil's star was officially the only book published out of sequence and the first one I read around 2006, this roller coaster sits behind The Redbreast and Nemesis, I have recently re-read all in order and its been marvellous. Reading in order always has the edge but this is not to say you couldn't just pick this book or any of the others and just read, although it's a guarantee reading one your be reaching for others, best take it from the top.

Jo Nesbø gives us another teasing puzzle with lots of clever plot twists. The stories are fascinating to read, constantly moving forward and the plots interwoven with smaller stories throughout bringing in the old and new characters along the way keeping everything fresh with the right pace, suspense, tension and interest.

This author is very descriptive and he pays attention to detail this time his given us a bit more of Oslo more so in this book than any other, building pictures great visuals which are very clear. The author reflects on a changing city, the amount of reconstruction that has taken place in Oslo and does it work! He talks of the history of older buildings from the opening pages all the way through. The subject reoccurs as trendy motifs contemporary modern designs new apartments or grand designs like student buildings go up around the city and the question is do they fit in? This may seem a familiar question to most of us as we look at our own cities and wonder does it actually add or take something away?

The author also has incredible observation of people, character building, all are well drawn and interesting Harry Hole and Tom Waaler set out to antagonize each other, these two grippingly twist and turn the story inside out. Beate Lonn with her photographic memory and passed abusive history with Tom Waaler. Harry himself is the most compelling character to read, you can tell in the dream/nightmare sequences written that all parts of his life are crossing over. His state of mind in this book is rock bottom his work is corrupt but evidence is nowhere to be found; Bjarne Møller his boss is at his wits-end with him. In the five stages of life Harry has taken stage three with force, anger, sadness, low self esteem, low expectations, self hate, guilt, alcohol fuels his depression leaving him suffering fear and anxiety. His love of his life Rakel doesn't know how to deal with him and is trying to hang on but the only way forward for Harry is too face his fears in all areas and become a stronger person for it, the only one who can help Harry would be himself.

Jo Nesbø adds humour into his novels that never escapes my notice, it translates into an English dry sense of humour and it works well with everything else going on. All loose ends and plots tie up and come to a fast paced conclusion even cleaning up an outstanding situation from the first two books.

Love this author work, all books are favourites but this one grabbed me way back in 2006 and stayed with me and I always mention it to people looking for something new. This Author certainly has a passion for a thriller. The Redemmer is next in line one which I have already reviewed, so next in line for me would be The Snowman March 2010 and judging by the product description it sounds even darker than The Devil's star, can't wait!

The Devil Star comes Highly Recommended. Also adding here a thank you to Don Bartlett for the clear translation in the series.

Better First Half 17 juin 2011
Par Ohioan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
This is the first and only book in this series that I've read. It received outstanding reviews, so I was interested. I found the first half of the book -- the introduction to the police detective Harry Hole, the murders, the allusions to things that happened in the past, things that obsessed Hole -- gripping. I wanted to know what happened and how Hole would discover who did it. But there is so much going on in this novel that during the second half I began to lose some of my interest: the book just didn't feel as compelling to me as it started out to feel. Probably some of my feeling that the drive of the book dissipated is due to the fact that are many things crammed into the book. Then, too, it's difficult to sympathize unendingly with a detective who's in an alcoholic stupor throughout most of the story: one's patience and interest wear thin. I began to crave something different, not more of the same drunkenness.

Three strikes followed by a grand slam 17 août 2010
Par T. J. Mathews - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit ( De quoi s'agit-il? )
When I started reading this book I quickly found three reasons why I probably wasn't going to like it.

For starters, 'The Devil's Star' is book five of Nesbo's Harry Hole series and they probably should be read in order. I didn't and I spent the first third of the book trying to figure out what was part of the main story and what was back story.

Second, the book starts with two cases that, at first glance seemed rather mundane. For a while I was wondering where this book could possibly go that was remotely interesting. Fortunately I got my answer.

Finally, Harry Hole is an alcoholic with all the self-destructive habits that go with it. Some people can relate to this and find it an enjoyable part of the story. I'm not one of them. I know that noir fiction, be it Nordic or otherwise, requires a flawed protagonist but sometimes I just want to slap him upside the head and scream 'Get your [$...] together, already!'

I know I've just given you three reasons not to read this book but, if you don't read it, you are making a really, really big mistake. Nesbo shows his transcendent writing skill in the first scene and it continues throughout the entire book. When I first saw the movie 'Jaws' in the theater I yanked my legs up onto my seat when the shark jumped out of the water. Never until now has a book had that affect on me. In 'Devil's Star' there are several scenes that are so visceral that I reared back from the page.

Once I was hooked I spent the majority of a camping trip glued to it. At one point the likely killer was identified, the police were closing in and I was perfectly content to chalk this one up as a really good read. It was then that I realized that a full third of the book remained and that the rollercoaster ride the book had turned into still had several twists in store.

I can't recommend this book highly enough. It is my first experience with Jo Nesbo's books and it definitely will not be the last.
