I love this series and am pleased to have the book, and have it arrive in good condition, but I do have to comment on the horrible customer service I received through the website. I pre-ordered this book, along with ordering other books that were already out, in September or October. It grouped them all to be shipped in February with the pre-order. ????? I had to call and use online support and it took a couple weeks and at least 4 different customer service representatives to be able to correctly solve a problem that I shouldn't have had in the first place. I was told that I should have not opted to ship them together. ????? I think Barnes and Noble should have assumed that I was ordering the other books now because I wanted them now, not because I wanted them 4 months from now. I shouldn't have to do guesswork on how stuff is going to ship. I don't know why the website is set up to work that way, but it is definitely deters me from wanting to order from this site again.

    Nesbo + Hole = Super Reading!

    I am just finishing up this book and I know there is yet another stone left unturned that will be exposed before I finish this book! The character Harry Hole is someone I latched onto automatically & held on for all 10 books he is featured in. I am not sorry! I have 2 more to read and am looking forward to more adventure, mystery and enjoyment!

    The Harry Hole series presently consists of 10 novels, of which


    The Harry Hole series presently consists of 10 novels, of which this was the second, published in the US in February 2014 for the first time. (The newest book, “The Son,” is due out in the UK in April 2014 and in the US in May 2014.) In the introductory novel, Harry was sent to Australia to solve a murder. This time he was selected to travel to Thailand where the Norwegian ambassador had been found knifed to death in a motel/brothel.

    Harry was handpicked by the powers-to-be in their effort to hush up any possible scandal back home, on the theory that he is a drunk and would not be able to solve the murder. Once in Bangkok, Harry finds out he has not been fully informed and is operating in a vacuum (as was intended). As he begins to investigate he uncovers more and more information trying to make sense out of the situation.

    The setting gives the author an opportunity to describe the traffic, noise, streets, bars, temples, tourist traps and opium dens in authentic detail, while following Harry’s efforts to solve the ambassador’s murder. Although Harry was supposed to “bury” the crime, the author concludes with a totally unexpected finale.

    As has been the case with each of this author’s books, this one too is highly recommended.

    Nesbo Novel is a Winner

    Fans of the Harry Hole series will enjoy this recently translated mystery. It is full of the twists and turns and surprise ending we have all learned to love. Enjoy!
