The story revolves around the Norwegian police officer Harry Hole, who is sent to Sydney, Australia to serve as an attachéfor the Australian police’s investigation into the murder of a young female Norwegian celebrity, Inger Holter. …
Harry Hole would seem to be perfect for me. But I found both Nesbø books I’ve tried well written, but too confusing. I haven’t really been invested in the plot nor do I care about Harry Hole, a jerk who should be avoided.
The Bat was written eight years before The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. So comparisons between Swedish author and journalist Stieg Larsson and Norweigan Jo Nesbø have been drawn. Often erroneously.
I’ll try at least one more. Then most likely quit for good.
