I told my good friend Jared that I was considering not buying any books this year..... save for the big show in Baltimore . Well this did not last very long..... The Redbreast - Jo Nesbø The second in the Harry Hole series. I find that vaguely naughty, but good reviews preceded this book. I say the second in the series because his Wikipedia entry notes this is the third in the series if you are tracking according to their Norwegian release. The crazier aspect is the first US release, The Dark Star, is the fifth release in Norway. Ugh! Here at THD our brains official hurt. I would be interested in the thought process that leads to this occurring.
