    DescriptionNot all angels are heaven sent. I am one such angel, and I have come to pass judgement on the living, and the dead...A report of a rare and unusual gun - a type favoured by assassins - being smuggled into the country sparks Detective Harry Hole's interest. Then a former WW2 Nazi sympathizer is found with his throat cut. Next, Harry's former partner is murdered. Why had she been trying to reach Harry on the night she was killed? As Harry's investigation unfolds, it becomes clear that the killer is hell-bent on serving his own justice. And while the link between the cases remains a mystery, one thing is certain: he must be stopped.

    Review quote
    "THE NEXT STIEG LARSSON" INDEPENDENT "A page-turner you won't want to put down" Time Out "A complex, utterly captivating story" Evening Standard "Scary...culminates in a nail-biting episode with overtones of The Day of the Jackal" Independent "Norway's finest crime writer... Nesbo clearly demonstrates his skill at executing expertly-crafted, well-paced thrillers that he sustains to the very end in a compelling fashion. As first novels go, The Redbreast and The Devil's Star are as accomplished as any reader is likely to experience" Daily Express
