For the Scandinavian Reading Challenge I need to read a book set in Norway. I have decided it will be a Jo Nesbo book because (a) they’re set in Norway and (b) everyone says they’re wonderful.
I started reading his first book, The Redbreast, sometime last year and I gave up at about page 80. The book has two threads, a historical one and a present-day one and I remember enjoying the present day story but I got a bit bored and lost with the lads in the trenches of WW2 which is what the historical part of the story seemed to be dealing with.
So my dilemma is…should I have another go at The Redbreast so that I get a proper introduction to Harry Hole? Or could I skip to Nesbo’s second novel Nemisis? Or perhaps I could go straight to the last novel?
Please help me choose which book to read by voting below and/or leaving a comment.
