Description

Jo Nesbo’s “The Night House” is my nominee for the 2023 Best Plot Twist in a Horror Novel. The fact that he pulls off two major twists—-neither of which I saw coming at all—-should be of major significance in the committee’s decision. (And since the committee is comprised of me, myself, and I, Nesbo should be a shoe-in.) However, in part three, Nesbo twists this tale again into something entirely different! Wow! This section is mind-blowing, similar to what I have come to expect from the brilliant mind of Catriona Ward. I am still unsure whether I actually understood what I read. 4 stars.

If you’re expecting a crime Harry Hole type novel then think again as one of my favourite authors takes us in a different direction here. Killing Moon is not just an unbearably tense thriller but another of Nesbo's studies in love and loneliness. At his best, as he is here, there are few greater crime writers.' The Times Richard is always looking for trouble, and when a classmate named Tom, who has a stutter, mentions, "Now, in the sp-sp-spring, the river is scary and dangerous", Richard convinces Tom to come to the river with him. Hole si ritrova in Norvegia a lavorare come investigatore privato e per risolvere il caso forma una squadra unica di investigatori composta da uno psicologo malato terminale, un agente di polizia corrotto e un amico d'infanzia spacciatore di cocaina. As the story opens, Norwegian former police detective Harry Hole - severely depressed after the death of his wife Rakel - is in a Los Angeles bar, trying to drink himself numb.

Get to know Jo Nesbo

Readers are privy to the doings of a man calling himself Prim, who emerges as the creepiest villain this side of a Thomas Harris novel . . . Nesbø excels at manipulating this sort of ghoulish material. He can heighten suspense with a single word and wrong-foot the most attentive customer.” Jo Nesbø is one of today’s most interesting thriller writers, and Harry Hole is an all-time great character.” The story is filled with red herrings, surprises, and misdirection, and I give Jo Nesbo high marks for a creative plot. This is a good novel, highly recommended to fans of thrillers.

This story could essentially be broken down into three parts. For me, the first most closely resembled what I thought I had signed up for and although I thought Richard was a jerk, some of the plot developments were interesting.

Now I am writing more at home, which is kind of sad, actually. I kind of liked the fact I had to go out among people to write.” Está bien escrita. Nesbo tiene oficio y se nota. El ritmo es el que caracteriza al autor, sostenido tirando a lento, cosa que no tiene por qué ser mala si se mantiene el interés. Ambientación y documentación buenas.
