Book 4 in the Harry Hole series (2008)
How do you catch a killer when you’re the number one suspect?
A man is caught on CCTV, shooting dead a cashier at a bank. Detective Harry Hole begins his investigation, but after dinner with an old flame wakes up with no memory of the past 12 hours. Then the girl is found dead in mysterious circumstances and he beings to receive threatening emails: is someone trying to frame him for her death?
As Harry fights to clear his name, the bank robberies continue with unparalleled savagery…
After a drunken day at the home of Anna Bechen’s old girlfriend, Detective Harry Hall wakes up at home with a headache, no cellphone and no memory of the last twelve hours of his life. The same day Anna is found dead with a bullet in the head in her bedroom and Holly is the main suspect. Meanwhile, bank robberies continue with relentless brutality, and Holly launches a dizzying road race from the Norwegian capital to hot Brazil to clear his position. But Nemesis, the goddess of revenge, has not yet said her last word.
Nemesis is a superb and surprising nail-biter that places Jo Nesbø in the company of Lawrence Block, Ian Rankin, Michael Connelly, and other top masters of crime fiction.
