Police by Jo Nesbø
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Sometimes you just have to go for a comfort read and while it may be odd to think of a Harry Hole mystery as a comfort read but in a way it is (think: you know what you're getting thanks to the Nesbo formula). For much of the book Hole is actually off screen and given the events of the previous book it's unclear why. When he does appear the death count doesn't acutally go up but that's more because of what's going on: someone is replicating previous cop killings. The ending was a little unsatisfactory in that usually he doesn't leave us with as big a cliffhanger, but since I haven't read that one yet I might just have to get it now!
