The Bat - Jo Nesbø Book Description

The electrifying first installment of the Harry Hole series. Look out for the latest Harry Hole novel, The Thirst, coming May 9, 2017.
 
Inspector Harry Hole of the Oslo Crime Squad is dispatched to Sydney to observe a murder case.  Harry is free to offer assistance, but he has firm instructions to stay out of trouble. The victim is a twenty-three year old Norwegian woman who is a minor celebrity back home. Never one to sit on the sidelines, Harry befriends one of the lead detectives, and one of the witnesses, as he is drawn deeper into the case.  Together, they discover that this is only the latest in a string of unsolved murders, and the pattern points toward a psychopath working his way across the country. As they circle closer and closer to the killer, Harry begins to fear that no one is safe, least of all those investigating the case.

From the Trade Paperback edition.

  • Great story of confusing at times

    It was a great murder mystery and serious enough to have tragedy thrown in. Kept me guessing and wondering until the end. It may have been the translation from Norwegian but there were some confusing passages of dialog. Nothing that couldn’t be overlooked for the overall enjoyment of the book. Recommended!
  • Awesome book
