Jo Nesbø: The Redbreast (Paperback, 2006, Harvill Secker) 3 stars

Review of 'The Redbreast' on 'Storygraph'

4 stars

Fantastic Norwegian murder mystery/thriller. Loved everything about it-the characterization, the historical aspects, the story itself. I made the mistake of finishing this late at night right before going to bed and I found my brain going round and round afterwards. I couldn't stop thinking about it. The obvious comparison to [b:The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo|2429135|The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (Millennium, #1)|Stieg Larsson||1708725] can't NOT be mentioned, but Nesbo's writing is so much less dense. There's a lot less detail, and that's definitely not a bad thing in a murder mystery. I really can't wait to read more in this series.
