Jo Nesbo’s “The Thirst!” Detective Harry Hole Is Back! New “Nordic Noir!”

Do You Have “The Thirst” For More Harry Hole?

One of my favorite Authors, Jo Nesbo, is back with the latest in his series of Detective Harry Hole thrillers!

Welcome to the world of “nordic noir” – moody crime thrillers from Norway, Sweden, Finland and Denmark.

“The Thirst” is the latest in the series of Hole novels – this “Dirty Harry” is plunged into the world of Tinder dating – because one psychopath is killing his dates!

These are terrific thrillers – I’ve read that “The Snowman” – book #7 in the series – is being made into a film – but read these in order to really understand the psychology behind Harry Hole – and meet a great cast of characters around him!

It’s been several years since the last Harry Hole book “Police”, so if you need help remembering all of them – here they are in order!

Nesbo also wrote a great thriller called “Headhunters” – you can read about that book here:

Equally as impressive are the series of “Department Q” thrillers as well:

This series of thrillers involves Detective Carl Morck…he’s a grizzled Copenhagen Cop who’s been put out to pasture in a new “department Q” – ice cold cases nobody wants to be bothered with…so of course he cracks them in a terrifically entertaining way…see these books in order here:

Let me know if you are a Harry Hole fan!

  1. I have to confess that the only Nordic Noir I’ve read is the Lisbeth Salander series by Stieg Larsson. The Harry Hole series has been on my radar, but I just haven’t foiynd the time to try them. You’ve convinced me I need to move them to the top of my tbr John. I know my library has them, so the next time I visit I’m going to check out the first book.😊

  2. I love to watch Nordic Noir on TV, and the films too. I have yet to get around to reading the books though.
    Best wishes, Pete.
