  • "A great introduction to Harry Hole."

    Overall

    Being a massive Jo Nesbo fan, I have been waiting eagerly for the first book in the Harry Hole series to be translated into English. Having loved everyNesbo novel so far, I approached The Bat with high expectations. I am pleased to say that I was not disappointed. Not yet the fully formed character, many of Harry Hole's skills and flawes ar soon on show. The reader is able to see how the author developed Harry into the more mature complex person that he becomes in later books.

    Strangely the first book in the series is set out of Harry's native Norway. A young Norwegian woman is Murdered in Sydney and Harry travels to Australia to liase witth the local police. All the usual Nesbo plot complexities are soon on show. The story builds up to a great ending, a typical trait of all Nesbo's thrillers. Had I read this book before any of his later novels, I would have immediately looked for the rest of the series. Just one more book to be translated, Cockroaches I believe is to be published in the English language sometime in2013. It does not really matter which order you read The Harry Holes books, Just read them!.

    Harry is out of his depth. Detective Harry Hole is meant to keep out of trouble. A young Norwegian girl taking a gap year in Sydney has been murdered, and Harry has been sent to Australia to assist in any way he can. He's not supposed to get too involved. When the team unearths a string of unsolved murders and disappearances, nothing will stop Harry from finding out the truth. The hunt for a serial killer is on, but the murderer will talk only to Harry. He might just be the next victim.

    Richard says: "A great introduction to Harry Hole."
  • "Absorbing, gripping thriller."

    Overall

    This is the conclusion to Nesbo's trilogy, following on from The Redbreast and Nemesis. Detective Harry Hole is once again investigating a series of complex murders. On this case he is teamed up with a colleague that Harry believes is a corrupt killer. In the earlier books in the trilogy Harry has failed to prove his fellow detectives guilt.
    This book has complex characters, wonderfully placed in bizarre and life threatening situations. Nesbo has the gift of making the reader feel uneasy in every chapter. The authors words are brought to life by narrater Sean Barrett, who never fails to add something special.
    The book builds to a crescendo, I was unable to stop listening and felt disappointed when it had to end.
    One of Jo Nesbo's best.

    young woman is murdered in her Oslo flat. One finger has been severed from her left hand, and behind her eyelid is secreted a tiny red diamond in the shape of a five-pointed star - a pentagram, the devil's star. Detective Harry Hole is assigned to the case with his long-time adversary Tom Waaler and initially wants no part in it. But Harry is already on notice to quit the force and is left with little alternative but to drag himself out of his alcoholic stupor and get to work. A wave of similar murders is on the horizon. An emerging pattern suggests that Oslo has a serial killer on its hands....

    Story

    Michael Robotham hits the mark once again with this brilliant thriller. Robotham puts psychologist Joe O'loghlin back onto the page. I will not give a synopsis of the story as I'm sure you will have already read the publishers summary. The story is written in the first person, from the point of view of O'loughlin. The author writes in a relaxed style, but he is able to seemlessly increase the pace and build tension, without interupting the flow of the story.
    This is the fourth book in Robotham's O'loughlin series and to really appreciate the book I would recommend that you read the novels in order. Many of the characters from earlier books reappear hear, ex cop Vincent Ruiz and Detective Inspector Veronica Gray will already be familiar to anyone who has read Robotham's last book.
    Robotham is not afraid to deal with contencious issues, this story involves racism and the main villain is a manipulative and sadistic paedophile. The author deals with these issues with sympathy, without shying away from the gritty truth. Narrator Sean Barret is once again superb, he brings Robotham's wonderfully drawn characters to life, each character is easily identifiable, if there is a better narrator out there, I have yet to listen to them.
    I stronly recommend anyone who has not read a Michael Robotham novel, do a little research, read the author's books in order and work your way through the series to this great book.

My only concerns in life were how to avoid a transfer to the Case Progression Unit - we do paperwork so real coppers don't have to - and finding a way to climb into the panties of the outrageously perky WPC Leslie May.

But as Strike investigates, it becomes clear that there is more to Quine's disappearance than his wife realises. The novelist has just completed a manuscript featuring poisonous pen-portraits of almost everyone he knows. If the novel were published it would ruin lives - so there are a lot of people who might want to silence him.
