The electrifying first appearance of Jo Nesbø’s detective, Harry Hole.
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.

BONUS MATERIAL: This ebook edition includes an excerpt from Jo Nesbø's Police.

A fascinating adventure in the Land of Down Under as Harry--again-- fights the odds to identify and capture not just the killer of one young Norwegian woman but of others who have met a similar fate. The Aboriginal lore is compelling and relative, and the characters are drawn superbly. The pain of addiction is palpable in all forms.

A bit slow

Very well written but rambling with detours trashy don't add to the plot or interest in the book. Legends and personal stories that are long and drawn out...........not recommended, but Nesbo is a very good story teller nonetheless.

I read this book based on someone else's recommendation so I guess I over - expected too much. Nonetheless, it was a great story and I will continue the series.

Good, well paced yarn, but the booze binges and vomiting become tiresome!
