Oslo is sweltering in the summer heat when a young woman is
murdered in her flat. One finger has been cut off and a tiny red
diamond in the shape of a pentagram--a five-pointed star--is found
under her eyelid. Detective Harry Hole is assigned the case with
Tom Waaler, a colleague he neither likes nor trusts. He believes
Tom is behind a gang of arms smugglers--and the murder of his
partner. But Harry, an off-the-rails alcoholic, is barely holding
on to his job and has little choice but to play nice.
Five days later, another woman is reported missing. When her
severed finger is found adorned with a star-shaped red diamond
ring, Harry fears a serial killer is on the loose. Determined to
find the killer and expose the crooked Tom Waaler, Harry discovers
the two investigations melding in unexpected ways. But pursuing the
truth comes at a price, and soon Harry finds himself on the run and
forced to make difficult decisions about a future he may not live

mysteries. Brilliantly plotted and paced, The Devil's Star shows
Nesbo at his absolute best, combining powerful emotional resonance
with truly stunning suspense.
