This is my review of The Devil's Star by Jo Nesbo, and is the third book that I have read following the saga of Harry Hole.
This book continues straight on from where the last “Nemesis” finished. Poor Harry is on the way out. He is under threat of the sack for alcoholism, and everyone seems to be against him. He just needs to prove that his long time adversary Tom Waaler is guilty, and not the shining star that all seem to think he is.
Harry is given a last case to solve before leaving the force, a serial killer who is making the sign of the Devil with murders. A young woman is murdered in her flat and the murderer leaves a red diamond in the shape of a five pointed star behind her eyelid.
From there onward more murders follow, but is all it seems or is it too perfect? The story taking a surprising couple of major twists and keeps one guessing to the end. Jo manages to leave enough threads dangling so one wants to read the next book to see if they are then answered then.
An enjoyable read - this was book 48 week 32 fiction 45 (13 on audio) non fiction 3
