The Bat By Jo Nesbo

the-bat

This book was unavailable in most of the bookstores when I tried to look for it. This is the first book in Jo Nesbo‘s Harry Hole (the main protagonist) series. I was disappointed to read The Bat after reading Jo Nesbo’s The Snowman and The Leopard, probably because these two books had set the level of thrill, the chase, and the suspense very high for me.

In the story, the Norwegian police officer Harry Hole comes to Sydney to serve as the Norwegian attaché for the Australian police’s investigation into the murder of a young female Norwegian celebrity, Inger Holter, who was residing there. The story is woven intricately with various characters, who at one time or another may look as possible suspects.

It is a little slow in the beginning but the second half is definitely better and more enjoyable. But now after reading it I can safely say that Jo Nesbo’s latter novels are much better. The Bat isn’t as thrilling, exciting, terrifying, as I expected it to be.
