    I honestly can't tell right now whether I like this series or if I'm just getting used to this character. There are definitely parts I don't like. The general tone of these books is very pessimistic and that can get tiresome. I don't tend to like the alcoholic but brilliant detective character, which is exactly what Harry is. I do find his character frustrating to read sometimes. However, I do keep reading these, and I will keep reading. I did like this one more than some of the others. Hopefully, I like the next book as well.

    The third in the "Harry Hole" Norwegian detective series. On my Aldiko eReader on my Google phone waiting to be read on my upcoming holiday trip. (Years ago I read three books on my Palm Pilot while travelling. Very much looking forward to this adventure.)
    Wonderful read. Insanely complicated fine fix Det. Hole has gotten himself into. And all I'll say is that Nesbø is more than up to those complications. Oh, and the eReading on my Google phone was a delight. I've successfully downloaded the next in the series, "The Redeemer."

    Another dark, creepy thriller from Nesbø. Read in just about a single sitting; even if I wanted to put it down at some points, I kept turning the pages.

    Synopsis: 'Pursuing his suspicions during the Nemesis investigation, Inspector Harry Hole attempts to convince the Chief Inspector that his colleague, Tom Waaler, is a smuggling kingpin known as 'The Prince', who has been involved in smuggling weapons into Oslo as well as the murder of a number of witnesses, including Hole's former partner Ellen Gjelten. Due to a lack of evidence, Hole is refused and goes on an alcoholic binge. His superior reluctantly sends termination of employment papers to the Chief Inspector, but Hole gets a short reprieve as the Chief is on holiday for three weeks and thus cannot sign them.Meanwhile, a murder victim is discovered dead in her shower, shot in the head. Waaler is appointed to lead the investigation, but Hole and his former partner Beate Lønn are attached to Waaler's team. Hole, investigating the murder scene, discovers a small, red, five-pointed diamond under the eyelid of the victim and that a finger is missing from her left hand. Another murder is presumed when the director of a theatre production of My Fair Lady, reports that his wife has gone missing. Her finger is later sent to Kripos; it has a ring on it with a small, red five-pointed diamond. A few days later a third victim is found, this time in the female toilets at a law firm, also on the floor and a five-pointed red diamond on the body. Yet again a finger has been removed.'Review: Tedious, but the plot is sound. Hole is still not a sympathetic character.

    Over the course of The Devil’s Star both Harry Hole and the readers finally get a resolution to his on-going investigation into the affairs of dirty cop, Tom Waaler. Harry’s obsession is heading into very dangerous areas and his drinking is out of control. Harry grudgingly agrees to join the task force looking for a serial killer and as luck would have it, Tom Waaler is heading up the force. Working closely together may just give Harry the edge he needs to bring him to justice. Meanwhile a serial killer is at work in Oslo, carrying out very stylized murders where he leaves identical five-pointed red diamonds at each crime scene. At first the killings appear random but Hole eventually discovers that there is a pattern to these killings.Harry Hole is one of the most angst-drive detectives in today’s literature. Hopefully the worst is now behind him as I was beginning to find these books a little too dark and depressing. This police procedural has plenty of twists and turns as the police race to stop this serial killer. Forensic investigator, Beate Lonn, makes a return appearance in this book and her help proves invaluable and I hope to see her in future books. By far the interplay between Harry Hole and Tom Waaler was the star attraction. Harry is vulnerable, overly emotional, and self destructive while Waaler is cold, smooth, cynical and over confident.The Devil’s Star was an excellent read and anyone who is interested in Nordic Noir should add this series to their reading list. I am curious as to where this author is going to take Harry now that his immediate demon has been put to rest.

    I made the mistake of reading this book thinking it was a stand alone novel. I was very wrong and as I read it I find myself slightly confused as it seemed like I needed to figure out who these characters were and what was going on, which was entirely my own fault. That being said, it was a really good book! Very much fits the genre of Nordic Noir and I really enjoyed it, enough so to grab up a few of the other books with the hopes of eventually catching up with the series (which seems to be my life's story).

    A pile of Jo Nesbo books have been sitting in the hall for ages. There are too many of them and they all look the same so I almost took them back to the Oxfam shop. Glad I didn't because I'd forgotten how clever and interesting they are. I was gripped with the tension by the end. And it kept me engaged the whole way through - thinking of possibilities and working out theories. Have another half a star.

    READ IN DUTCH

    I had read one book by Jo Nesbo (I don't know how to create that special character) and I liked it, so when I came across Marekors (in Dutch: Dodelijk Patroon) I wanted to read it).

    Each fifth day, there's a ritual murder in Oslo. Harry Hole starts with his final weeks at the police due to his drinking problem. But he still gets involved in this case. So is his archenemy, Tom Waaler...

    I didn't read all the books about Harry Hole yet, so I couldn't understand where everything about Tom Waaler was all about. But I guess that's my own mistake, because I didn't read them in the right order. I like the book. Especially in the beginning it starts with quite some murders and you are thrown right in to the story. I liked the writing style, it was fast and nice to read. It took me some time to get respect for the end of the book and the way Nesbo (forgive me that last letter) had made up the story.

    But I start to think that alcoholism is an occupational disease for policemen...

    After writing half-dozen best sellers in Scandinavia and Europe, Norway’s answer to the next rising star of Scandinavian thrillers is Jo Nesbo and he brings the pounding beat of “The Devil’s Star” to take America by storm.
    Detective Harry Hole, is climbing out of the wrong side of the drunk-tank trying to recover from his partner’s murder and the demise of his long term relationship with Rakel. To make matters worse, Hole suspects the detective he is forced to partner with now, as being implicated in his partner’s death and is generally a crooked cop.
    When the initial investigation unearths a dead woman with a missing finger and a small, red, star-shaped diamond under her eyelid, the crew is stumped. With no leads and no new information, they are surprised when five days later the finger of a missing woman shows up with a red diamond ring. Correctly, they surmise a serial killer is on the loose. By the time the third woman shows up dead with a missing finger and a red diamond, they have pin-pointed evidence to who they refer to as the Courier Killer. A man on a bicycle is acting as a deliveryman to gain access. Hole has to determine whether these are random killings, or where these woman chosen for a special reason.
    It all centers on the diamond, a red pentagram that when diagrammed and placed on a map, leads them to the time sequence and the place where the final killing while take place. With no PD support, Hole has to strike out on his own. As we peel through each layer of witnesses and suspects the tension builds. With the killer closing in and his partner trying to kill him, too, Hole is on his own. By the time he finally unmasks the sociopathic murderer, we have been treated to a story like never before. This is a police procedural for the ages.

    Loved the complexity but felt like this one went on a little too long. Too many "ah ha!" moments that weren't "ah ha!" moments. Still love his writing and his plot construction.

    Harry's wife murdered, he thinks by a fellow cop, Waaler. Investigating serial killer with Waaler. Three story lines, all fascinating, gross. Understated emotions, palpable tension, pathetic alcoholic, failed relationship. New love and her son for Harry. Characters fully fleshed and even the bad ones are likeable, complex story. Really scary -- especially the waterbed! Setting a bit fuzzy. Don't have to read series in order.

    Völlig daneben lag ich als Leserin, wer der Mörder denn sein könnte. Und exakt aus dem gleichen Grund, weshalb Harry Hole anfangs auch nicht die richtige Lösung fand. Doch während er irgendwann feststellte, was schief lief, blieb ich bis kurz vor Schluss auf der falschen Fährte. Doch der Reihe nach.
    Nachdem Harrys erneuter Versuch, den Mörder seiner Kollegin Ellen dingfest zu machen, misslang, ertränkt er mal wieder seine Verzweiflung in Alkohol. Und kommt seiner Kündigung zuvor, indem er sie selbst einreicht. Doch kurz bevor diese vom Kriminaldirektor bestätigt wird, geschehen innerhalb kurzer Zeit drei Morde - allen Opfern fehlt ein Finger und es wird ein roter sternförmiger Diamant aufgefunden. Harry ist wieder dabei - und ausgerechnet im Team seines Erzfeindes. Doch überraschenderweise zeigt sich dieser Harry gegenüber von seiner besten Seite...
    Im Gegensatz zu den vorhergehenden Büchern mit Harry Hole gibt es dieses Mal kein Schwerpunktthema, um das sich die Geschichte rankt. Dafür sind es aber zwei Fälle, die in diesem überaus spannenden Krimi erzählt werden. Zum einen die Suche nach dem Serienmörder, zum andern die persönliche Jagd Harry Holes nach dem Mörder seiner früheren Kollegin Ellen. Wie beide sich immer mehr miteinander verknüpfen, ist schlicht genial und hochspannend. Details, deren ganze Bedeutung sich erst gegen Ende erschließt (wenn man nicht schon früher so begnadet schlussfolgert wie Harry Hole); Spuren deren Bedeutung man gedankenlos folgt, obwohl es ganz anders sein könnte - man muss das Buch wohl zweimal lesen, um es vollständig genießen zu können. Und obgleich der Held strenggenommen ein Antiheld ist (Alkoholiker, Drogenmissbrauch, disziplinlos...),wächst er einem mit jedem Band und jeder Seite mehr ans Herz.
    Ich freu' mich schon auf den nächsten Band!

    I did not realize when I started this book that it was fifth in a series of ten, so far. While it does stand alone, I think I would recommend reading them in order.Detective Inspector Harry Hole has been on a drunken bender for several weeks. Having been obsessed with the idea that a fellow cop, Tom Waaler, is corrupt and had killed two people in order to hide his activities, he had come to the conclusion that he was stymied and unable to take the case further. He has but one ally in the police department, his boss, Bjorn Moller. “Harry Hole.The lone wolf, the drunk, the department’s enfant terrible and, apart from Tom Waaler, the best detective on the sixth floor.” He’s occasionally totally dysfunctional with moments of brilliance.They are confronted with a strange case where the killer seemingly picks his targets at random, leaving only a severed digit as a clue and red diamonds. Hole realizes that the killer is leaving a trail and the clues all revolve around the pentagon shape. It took me a bit to get into the book, but once involved, it’s a real rush to the end with numerous tight curves and bends. Downgraded for intuitive insights on the part of Harry that seemed to spring out of thin air rather than from investigatory brilliance.

    Het is jaren geleden dat ik nog eens een detective onder de kiezen nam. Maar met het oog op een reisje naar Noorwegen stak een kennis me dit boek toe. Het was een aangename kennismaking met Noorwegens beste misdaadauteur. Het boek bevat alle cliché's van het genre: een antiheld (want dik aan de drank, en daarmee zijn werk en zijn relaties verpestend), allerlei dwaalsporen, een onwaarschijnlijke ontknoping... Maar het verraste me ook door een aantal briljant geschreven passages en het erg filosofisch-relativistische kader. Kortom, het viel mee, maar detectives zullen nooit mijn favoriete genre worden.

    Jo Nesbo's The Devil's Star was about the Oslo's police force's hunt for a serial killer. It seemingly starts off with a young woman's murder in her flat and a five pointed red diamond is found behind her eyelid. Mueller has no choice but to pair both Harry Hole and Tom Waaler on the case since almost everybody is off on holiday.

    Harry, of course, wants nothing to do with the case and ventures off on a missing persons case. Mueller, tired of Harry's drunken antics and unproven allegations of Waaler's involvement in Ellen's death, as already given Harry's retirement papers to the chief superintendent, who is also away on holiday.

    When Harry's missing persons case connects with the murder case, the squad realizes they a serial murderer on their hands. Harry decides to stay sober long enough to catch maybe more than one killer.

    The Devil's Star had me on the edge of my seat. It felt like a giant inhale. I could not even think about exhaling until everything ended up okay or as okay as anything can in a dark Norwegian crime novel. The character of Harry Hole pisses me off so much! He is so capable and talented and then he drinks and becomes stupid. He wounded up in a whole mess of trouble in Nemesis because of it. But he seems to be learning and maybe Raquel and little Oleg can help him with his demons.

    This is my first Harry Hole book I enjoyed it very much, I thought I was going to be confused with the characters names but it was fine. Plot. Harry is down on his luck, drinking to much, split up with his long term girl, hates his dodgy corrupt boss is about to leave the force. He reluctantly assists investigating a serial killer case thats gripping Oslo. Harry manages to work it all out, it was a very clever set up. He also gets back with his girl and his dodgy Police boss gets what he deserves in the end. Enjoyable Police drama of a book.

    A young woman is murdered in her Oslo flat. One finger has been severed from her left hand, and behind her eyelid is secreted a tiny diamond in the shape of a five-pointed star – a pentagram, the devil's star.

    Another great Harry Hole whodunnit. All in all it was a fast page-turner. 4 stars.

    I really enjoyed it - but I'm reading the series backwards. I read the two later books after this one first. So, some of the details I sort of already guessed because they factored (or didn't factor) in the later books. But still, it was a good solid enjoyable crime novel.
    A serial killer is working their way through Oslo (are there any people left there, since there are so many serial killers there?). Harry Hole sees the pattern but what does it mean? How can he solve it while working against a killer and policemen on his own team that work against him. The good guys win, of course, but I don't think that is much of a spoiler.

    In this fifth installment in the Harry Hole-series, Hole is tasked with working for Waaler, his arch-nemesis, while trying to figure out why murder victims are found with five-pointed diamond stars and missing fingers. Such a fantastic installment in this series - there are just so many intricate story-lines that you can't put it down, but have to rush to the end to see where it all ends up. And there is quite a punch at the end, which I couldn't help but to cheer at. Nesbø is just fantastic.

    Another good Harry Hole book ( but not quite as smooth as Snowman and Leopard). Despite his shortcomings (alcoholism), Harry is ethical and a highly creative, intelligent detective. In The Devil's Star, Harry is challenged with solving yet another serial murder case while exposing the illicit behavior of a fellow detective.

    Another great yarn from Nesbo with his central character Harry Hole, a sometimes drunken police super star detective. A great work of a serial killer's psychology and other habitual traits as used in police investigations. The elements of a five sided star found scrawled thru-out the crime scenes and embedded in the anatomy of victims with the potential five murders etc. The intricate details are interwoven with great skill and the research is again outstanding. Yet as always with Nesbo the story does not un-ravel until 500 pages or so are absorbed. Beware Nesbo Novels become addictive.

    Considered to be the same type of mystery writer as Steig Larsen, the protagonist here is a little more damaged than in Larsen's "Girl" books, but the police procedural aspects seem solid and the suspense is nicely maintained. Less gruesome than The Snowman, this is the second of the Harry Hole novels I have read, but plan to read others.

    A hot summer in Oslo and a serial killer is on the loose. The killer is leaving a small star-shaped diamond on each body and is taking a finger for a keepsake. Detective Harry Hole, deep into another tormented drunken stupor, is dragged into the investigation.Harry also finds himself looking into his corrupt superior nemesis, Tom Waaler (these books really need to be read in order), from the previous novel. Another possible powder-keg.For me, this book takes it’s time getting started, a bit dragged out, but suddenly I found myself smack in the middle of Harry’s unsteady, volatile world and the story ends with a bloody bang.
