Summary (From the publisher):

Grainy CCTV footage shows a man walking into a bank and putting a gun to a cashier's head. He tells her to count to twenty-five. When he doesn't get his money in time, she is executed. Detective Harry Hole is assigned to the case. While Harry's girlfriend is away in Russia, an old flame gets in touch. He goes to dinner at her house and wakes up at home with no memory of the past twelve hours. The same morning the girl is found shot dead in her bed. Harry begins to receive threatening e-mails. Is someone trying to frame him for this unexplained death? Meanwhile the bank robberies continue with unparalleled savagery. Gripping and surprising, "Nemesis" is the new thriller by one of the biggest stars of Scandinavian crime fiction.

Blurbs:
  • ""The high-intensity action is threaded through a series of Chinese boxes revealing one false solution after another before the brilliantly inventive final twist."" Kirkus Reviews
  • "Nesbo returns with another novel that is every bit the multitextured, complexly plotted, psychologically rich thriller that made "The Redbreast" such an unqualified success...Nesbo manages the unlikely feat of exploring the inner life of his lead character in the thorough and compelling manner one associates with, say, Ruth Rendell, while at the same time juggling multiple, interlocking plot strands as dexterously as David Hewson. No doubt about it: Nesbo belongs on every crime-fiction fan's A-list."" Booklist
