This is the first book about Harry Hole and it has been on my reading list for some years now, and finally I got around to pick it up at the airport before Christmas. I wasn’t impressed at all by the first chapter and it took a while before I enjoyed the book.
What I really liked was the way Nesbø has used a lot of Australian history and especially the history of the Aboriginal peoples and especially their myths. I’m not sure what I think of Harry Hole himself. I guess I need to read another book to form a picture of him.
I will put Jo Nesbø on the list of books to look for in second hand stores as I don’t think they are worth the ridiculous price of new books in Norway. And I do prefer second hand books anyway.
