The Bat: A Harry Hole thriller (Harry Hole 1) - Jo Nesbo This was good. I did enjoy it.However, I suggest reading this book in one sitting. I had placed it down a couple of times, and had to flick back and forth to remember who the characters were.Didn't see the twist near the end, so this author might have a new follower!! :)The only reason I picked this foreign mystery thriller up was back a few months ago the library The Snowman had made it's English debut. I read the inside jacket to find out that the others in this series were slowly being translated.I did not have trouble with the translation, thought it was pretty good. Bottom line: This is a good introductory first book to a series. Learned a lot about Australia.
