Nesbo, Jo, The Redeemer

Terror strikes during the Oslo Christmas season when a trained assassin takes down a Salvation Army musician with a single, point-blank range shot. For contrarian police investigator Harry Hole, however, the story has just begun: The professional hit-man has hit the wrong target and Hole will go anywhere, even Eastern Europe, to stop him from correcting his error. (P.S. Norwegian author Nesbro has been called the Scandinavian mystery writer to watch.)
