The thrilling first book in the bestselling Harry Hole series, never before published in English.

HARRY IS OUT OF HIS DEPTH.

Detective Harry Hole is meant to keep out of trouble. A young Norwegian girl taking a gap year in Sydney has been murdered, and Harry has been sent to Australia to assist in any way he can.

HE'S NOT SUPPOSED TO GET TOO INVOLVED.

When the team unearths a string of unsolved murders and disappearances, nothing will stop Harry from finding out the truth. The hunt for a serial killer is on, but the murderer will talk only to Harry.

HE MIGHT JUST BE THE NEXT VICTIM.

Appearing in English for the first time, The Bat is the legendary first novel from the worldwide phenomenon Jo Nesbo.

Disappointing

Comments about The Bat:

The book seemed written in a rush with bits and pieces about Australia, Sydney and Aboriginal culture added into the narrative in an almost forced manner.

Prior to this I had read The Son and found this hugely enjoyable with surprises in the storyline and characters.
