THE REDEEMER, by Jo Nesbo

6/series starring Oslo detective Harry Hole. Translated from the Norwegian by Don Bartlett. Another noirish snow-blown murder mystery, this one set in the world of the Norwegian Salvation Army. An assassination during a public concert brings Harry onto the scene where most clues have vanished. Tracking a single bullet links him to a killer based in the former Yugoslavia.

As the killer, trapped in Oslo,  becomes increasingly desperate, Harry  risks a freelance trip to the old Communist state. This is a complex, bloody, unforgiving psychological thriller (can't call it a mystery, we pretty much know whodunnit) with Oslo's most brilliant investigator the perpetual thorn in the hierarchy's side. Another can't put down 5.
