Great start to the saga of Norwegian detective Harry Hole. For english-language readers who have long waited to read about Harry's much-referenced Australian adventure, this book is a real treat. Nesbø is a fantastic writer.

I was disappointed by the first Hole book. The australian location was not interesting. The characters were unpleasant. I couldnt finish it and already traded it on another website. Dont waste your money.

"Review" by , “Even with this first book Nesbø’s command of the idiom is completely in place — there is absolutely no sense that the writer was finding his feet and aficionados will be very pleased to slide this on to their bookshelves alongside the other Harry Hole novels.”
"Review" by , “It is fantastic to see a younger Harry, a more loquacious Harry....[Nesbø is] a terrific writer who knows how to build a story, taking you slowly to the top of a rollercoaster before sending you hurtling towards a solution that you never see coming.”
"Review" by , “Nesbø is already taking on the clichés, ruthlessly tearing them apart and coming up with new riffs....Most satisfyingly, we can now see the organic shape that Nesbø always intended his work to take.”
