* IronWoobie: Harry, big time -- especially in the last few books.
* GrowingTheBeard: ''The Bat'' and ''Cockroaches'' are not particularly highly regarded, as they suffer from a great deal of EarlyInstallmentWeirdness and Jo Nesbo was still finding his feet as a writer. It is the third book, ''The Redbreast'' where Nesbo truly comes into his own as a writer, and the series vastly improves in quality from there.

* CriticalResearchFailure: A plot point in The Redbreast' involves Svarre Olsen on trial in South Africa and threatened with execution, and at the end [[spoiler:he is sentenced to death]]. The problem is that South Africa had abolished the death penalty well before 2000, when the novel takes place.

* AccidentalInnuendo: English speakers may have to be forgiven for initially assuming these books are satirical or even pornographic based on the name of the protagonist. It ''really'' doesn't help that the ''Snowman'' film actually pronounces it as "hole" rather than the proper "ho-lay."

* CompleteMonster: Among Nesbø's many monstrous villains, Valentin Giertsen from ''Police'' [[spoiler:and ''The Thirst'']] sticks out as quite probably the worst. A gleeful and utterly unrepentant sadist, serial rapist, and serial killer, Giertsen is dreaded even by other hardened criminals.

* CompleteMonster: Although the killers in ''The Snowman'' and ''The Leopard'' are both given [[FreudianExcuse Freudian Excuses]], their actions still propel them well into Complete Monster territory.
