    1st Harry Hole novel. Harry is invited to help the Australian Police, there has been a Norwegian girl murdered in Sydney. Harry teams up with an Aboriginal officer called Andrew Kensington. Andrew shows him around the place and introduces Harry to lots of local Characters, specially Brigitta who is a Swedish Barmaid. Harry and her quickly get together, Harry is a good officer and really works well with the local Cops. Andrew is found dead suspected suicide. Harry a recovering alcoholic does fall off the wagon, as he liked Andrew, things go a bit rocky with Brigitta too. They think there is a Serial killer on the loose called Evan White. He is a drug dealer but not a killer, the real killer who also kidnaps Brigitta and kills her, Harry was to late to save her, is an aboriginal Boxer called Toowoomba, who also killed Andrew. Toowoomba was hiding in the Sydney aquarium, Harry finds him shoots him then he is munched by a big Shark. Good introduction to Harry Hole and his history, bit silly in places though.

    I liked the writing style and the characters, but I've been distracted and put this book down one too many times to keep track of the story well. So my rating may be unfair; I will definitely try the second book in this series. In this one, Norwegian detective Harry Hole is sent to Australia to consult in the murder of Inger Holter, a young woman who was a citizen of Norway. He is befriended by Aboriginal detective Andrew Kensington and also falls in love with a Swedish expat named Brigitte who was a co-worker of Inger's. A good read, sometimes humorous. Have to give Nesbo another try when I can focus better.

    I read the English version but on a phone hard to find. Great read, no superhero detective. Stumbles through as we all do and so human. Thoroughly enjoyed!

    This is not my first book by this author but this is the first I've read in this series. I know that these first two book in this series aren't the most popular but I'm a bit of a completionist when it comes to book series so I still wanted to start at the beginning anyway. This is not a bad book by any means. I got through it very quickly and mostly enjoyed my time with it. But having read a more recent book by this author, I know this isn't the best he can do and this mystery didn't grab me in the way some others have.

    In this book we're introduced to our main character Harry Hole, a police detective who is also an alcoholic. This is not the most unique character type but I liked what was done with the character here. There's an edge of humor in the character that I appreciated. This character wasn't the most unique here, but I'm interested in learning more in future books.

    The mystery plot was fine. I found it kind of meandering in parts and not super gripping at times. The ending especially felt a bit all over the place. I think that there was an attempt to do a little too much and rather than making the plot more exciting, it just made things a bit chaotic. There were definitely parts of this mystery I liked. I enjoyed seeing Harry put pieces together but I just wish there had been fewer pieces to be put together.

    I'm interested in seeing where this series goes. I really enjoy Nesbo's writing and even though I know the next book isn't super well loved either, I think his writing will get me through it. These books are super quick reads for me so I hope I'll get to a few more soon.

    A Scandinavian mystery set entirely in Australia.
    Background information on Australian and Aboriginal culture interesting. The fight scenes were unrealistic. I found the final plan to catch the culprit also extremely unprofessional, the Australian police went with the idea as if it was normal, and this adds to unbelievable aspects.

    I would call this a gritty mystery. The main character is as damaged and dysfunctional as it can get. His life is also unbelievably riddled with tragedies. I will read (or listen to) another mystery by Jo Nesbo to see how he gets on with his life and investigations. I want to see if a healthier level of reality can prevail.

    Note on the audio book: The narrator did a good job but I found his voice a bit monotone and uninspiring. Not best suited to action thriller genre, or maybe chosen because of that to bring down the level of over-the-top fight scenes.

    Harry is a police officer/detective from Norway. When a Norwegian woman is murdered in Australia, where she’s been living, Harry heads down to help the local police with the investigation. It seems that this may actually be the work of a serial killer, though it wasn’t initially obvious. Add in an Australian aboriginal police officer, a homosexual clown, and a Swedish barmaid as a love interest, and we have “The Bat”.I didn’t find the backstory/personal interest story all that interesting. I do know I’m not as much a fan of noir mysteries. Is this one? Not sure. Also not always a fan of police procedurals. Is this one? It had a bit of that feeling to it (of both), but maybe it didn’t quite fit the definitions. Anyway, I’m calling this one “ok”. It did pick up at the very end, but somehow I think I missed an important tie-up. If I didn’t miss it, then something went very wrong. I don’t think I’ll be continuing the series.

    Just jumped in to a little of this. Put aside to read something else. Will be back to it shortly.

    And. Finished. The long-awaited translation of the first Norwegian Detective Harry Hole novel. The background here could've always been guessed, but to read about Harry's early history and specifically his "damaged" state and his drinking is very interesting. Very.
    PS I purchased this Kindle edition from the British publisher from my French Amazon account. Not yet available in the US.

    The Bat. Jo Nesbo. 2012. The first Harry Hole novel. This is another book, I pulled out of my numerous “to be read stacks” that I must have gotten at Trade n’ Books. Gosh, I hope she opens soon! Harry is a Norwegian policeman. I think I may have read The Redbreat, but am not sure. Harry is sent to Australia to look into the murder of a young Norwegian woman. He is to observe, not get involved, but that is easier said than done, and he is soon tangled in police business and a budding love affair. Is a serial murderer, and is it someone they know? Very noir, very violent, and a little too much local color for me.

    This was my brother's find and it's a great one. I've been aware of Nesbo for a long time and have no idea why I have never read any of this stuff. But this book 1 in this series is a delight. Great characters, good plot and more already ready for me in the same series. The perfect storm of reading.

    This audiobook was narrated by John Lee, a phenomenal voice actor and narrator who had many different dialects and accents down perfectly. I just wish this series was more my style of novel. I was pretty bored throughout most the novel, and I'm unsure whether I will bother with the rest of the series. It was just.......bleh.
    3.5 stars, and recommended for lovers of Norwegian mystery novels.

    I decided to read this since I really liked one of Jo Nesbo’s previous books. Since this is book one I was surprised that it took place outside his normal area of being a police officer. It did allow for him to explain his backstory to people that were strangers to him. One of the things that made this a bit different was how many times Harry was wrong about who the killer was and how he kept thinking he had the right killer.

    An interesting audio to listen to since no one had an American accent in the book.

    This is the first in the Harry Hole series. I enjoyed the detective part of the story, but some of the flashbacks to his personal life (previous relationship with Kristin) did not seem to add anything to the story. Maybe it will become more apparent in subsequent novels.

    In this story, Harry, a Norwegian Detective is sent to Australia to assist in the investigation of a Norwegian Citizen who has been murdered there. He has been instructed to stay out of trouble and when he arrives is again reminded that he is there to observe. Well, Harry does more than observe. He insinuates himself into the case. He is working with an Aboriginal names Kensington and together they get in fights, drive all around Australia, stir up additional trouble, develop some intimate relationships and finally Harry is instrumental in solving the crime. I am going to try the next one to see how it is. This series gets high ratings so I am sure the books will get better.

    Synopsis: Harry Hole is searching for the murderer of a Norwegian girl in Sydney, Australia. He gets very involved with another policeman and takes it so hard when the cop is murdered that he falls off the wagon. When he goes back to drinking he not only gets some booze induced insights, but he loses his girlfriend permanently.Review: I was with him until he went back to drinking; then a bunch of my empathy vanished. I did like the ending.

    Harry is a unmarried, recovering alcoholic. He is sent to Australia when a former Norwegian children's show star is murdered. I wonder is the author knew blond Aborigines are not unusual? However I did learn a lot.

    Book on CD read by John LeeBook #1 in the Inspector Harry Hole series. Harry is a member of the Oslo Crime Squad, and he’s sent to Sydney Australia after a young Norwegian woman is murdered. Harry’s role is to “observe” and offer advice, if asked, but he’s not to interfere with the investigation. Of course, Harry can’t just sit idly by. First he befriends one of the lead detectives, and then one of the witnesses. Before long he’s pointed out the pattern of killings that point to a psychopathic serial killer. The first thriller I read by Nesbø was The Snowman, set in Oslo and featuring Harry Hole. When I realized it was part of a series, I decided to go back to book one, except that at that time it wasn’t available in the USA. I’m glad I finally got to it. Nesbø writes a tight , fast-paced thriller with plenty of clues, several red herrings, a flawed but likeable lead detective, and an interesting setting. I’ll definitely read more of this series. John Lee does a fine job narrating the audio version. He has good pacing and I loved his Aussie accent! He even does a pretty good job with the female voices.

    Another series? Ermagod! But, I went ahead and dove in and I was not disappointed. I trusted the recommendation on the author because it came from a friend and fellow reader who has never steered me wrong yet. This time, I decided to start at Book #1 and read them in order.The main character is Harry Hole (pronounced Hoo-leh), a Norwegian detective who has had been through some professional and personal hard times as all the best fictional detectives seem to have in common.He has been sent to Sydney, Australia to assist in solving the murder of a Norwegian girl who was on a tourist visa. The first thing I loved about the book was that I lived in Sydney for several years. Ironically, the murdered girl’s flat was located in Hereford Street, Glebe which was actually one street away from where I lived. So I had the vicarious thrill of knowing the neighborhood intimately.The next vicarious thrill was that the murdered girl, who was straight, worked as a bartender at the largest gay men’s piano bar in Sydney, The Albury. Now, my friends and I started many an evening of clubbing at the Albury. I had many friends who were bartenders, drag performers, singers in the piano bar. I went to many an after-memorial night there to celebrate fallen friends. I had many gay Mardis Gras nights there and Oxford Street was somewhere I spent many wonderful times.Alas, The Albury is gone. As the community changes, morphs and assimilates, we have lost wonderful places. But I love that it lives on in this book. Harry is housed in Kings Cross which is the red light district of Sydney. I have millions of stories about Kings Cross too – all good. The Bourbon and Beef is somewhere many late nights and early mornings have ended.A secondary location is the rain forests in northern New South Wales. Most particularly, Nimbin, which is a hippie town trapped in time. I spent time on a commune in that area so again, wonderful memories and to have so many rolled into one book sold me on the series right there.In a wonderful stroke of serendipity, the story itself is very, very good. The mystery is complex; the characters are very rich and some of the clues dropped on Harry are done wrapped in aboriginal Dreamtime Stories shared by several aboriginal characters that populate the novel.I am a convert. Harry is a wonderful character and there are plenty of books out there to get into before you have to wait for the next novel in the series. I love to find an author I can get stuck into and this is one for fans of a good mystery and a traveling Norwegian detective with issues.

    First in the series of Norwegian detective Harry Hole. Unfortunately it was in Australia. To many Aboriginal wanderings and the end was a little cliche. But some good writing in places. But willing to give Harry Hole another chance.

    I've signed up to take a Harry Hole walking tour of Oslo, so I figured I should read some of the books first. Of course, this one takes place entirely in Australia. Harry Hole is in the country to follow up on the murder of a Norwegian woman. What follows is a lengthy journey through Australian aboriginal culture, the drug trade, Harry's alcoholism and past relationships, and sky diving. There were parts when I wasn't positive I was reading things in order, with flashbacks shoved in somewhat disjointedly. I don't have strong feelings about Harry or the story in general, but I do believe I need to read at least one more installment in the series before I form a solid opinion.

    Before Harry took on the neo-Nazi gangs of Oslo, before he met Rakel, before The Snowman tried to take everything he held dear, he went to Australia. Harry Hole is sent to Sydney to investigate the murder of Inger Holter, a young Norwegian girl, who was working in a bar. Initially sidelined as an outsider, Harry becomes central to the Australian police investigation when they start to notice a number of unsolved rape and murder cases around the country. The victims were usually young blondes. Inger had a number of admirers, each with his own share of secrets, but there is no obvious suspect, and the pattern of the other crimes seems impossible to crack. Then a circus performer is brutally murdered followed by yet another young woman. Harry is in a race against time to stop highly intelligent killer, who is bent on total destruction.

    I love this series! I'm not sure what grabs me about these particular books, but they are right in my wheelhouse for entertainment. Usually I hate to read something out of order, it bothers me on a subconscious level maybe, but that hasn't really been an issue. I feel like Each book tells you just enough about where Harry Hole is in his life that his characterization feels complete.

    That is one of the things I always base most of my "score" on when reviewing books. 1)Is the plot coherent? 2) Are the characters interesting and two dimensional?

    I am happy to say YES to both of those questions for this book. The plot to this really had me hooked and pulled me along quite nicely. Mysteries are a strange thing for me to read because I hate it when I guess the murderer too quickly. If i can guess who did it in the first section of the book I sometimes feel cheated. The book may or may not redeem itself with the ending, but usually it doesn't seem as fulfilling to me. I'm happy to say that I didn't guess the killer until the very end. This book had a bunch of twists and turns in it that made me stay up late to finish!

    As for the characterizations, I felt that they were all really well defined. I have always found Harry Hole to be well fleshed out and sympathetic, even if he is making terrible choices and making me yell at him. He is a smart and capable police officer and really cares about the victims. The secondary characters were also really well drawn although they did suffer a bit compared to Harry. I'm not sure whether this is because it was the first book in the series or just a translation issue. It didn't bother me too much or take me out of the book any.

    Overall, I really enjoyed this book and look forward to getting some of the others i missed!

    This had all the key ingredients I usually enjoy, but for some reason I stuggled to get into this book and it didn't maintain my interest. The plot was okay but nothing more than that. I don't know if it lost something in translation but did just not hook me. There seemed a lot of descriptive passages but I wanted more interplay and dialogue between the main characters. Don't let this put you off, just because it didn't work for me doesn't mean you won't enjoy it - many have! For me it just needed more flow to the story. As a result I am giving it three stars. It was the first book in the series so perhaps I need to try a later book in the series before giving up on Harry Hole altogether.

    This was a slow read, the first book in a series by Jo Nesbø. This book does not live up to the author's reputation, which may be why it was so long before it was translated.
    Harry is a Norwegian policeman sent to help look into the murder of a young Norwegian girl in Sydney, Australia. Why a Norwegian policeman would have that much input into a case in Australia, I'm not sure. There was so much Australian information, it was overwhelming--just a lot of info dumping. In addition, the protagonist came across as uninviting and behaved unbelievably stupidly.

    Going back to the beginning of the series, I have to agree that Nesbo's style has developed a great deal over the course of writing the series. The Bat's structure and plot development is not nearly as tight as the later novels, though it's a fairly short book. The characters, too, are not as well developed. Interesting to see how an author grows over the course of writing about a character.

    3/5
    If this were a comic book, this would be called an origin story, because it sets up the background to Harry's alcoholism and his difficulty with relationships. Although only just translated it was the first in the series and somewhat oddly in set in Australia. Nesbo has done his research with lots on Aboriginal myths and the racial tension in Oz, but there is so much that I think it gets in the way of the storytelling, which is less compelling than that in the "Oslo Sequence."
    I am a fan now; but I am not sure whether I would have followed this one up had I started here. One reviewer commented that this was not as gruesome as some of the others, I beg to differ!
    It was only when I tried to enter this on Good Reads that I realised how many we in the UK have not got yet. I may need to do some more research before I commit myself beyond "The Phantom" which I will probably get to in the next couple of months.
