"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."

      Found it hard to follow story line - all the cliches used by overseas people who think they know Australians. Wouldnt image our police force would act the way they were portrayed in this book.

          This is the first book written by jo nesbo and Not indicative of the quality of his writing! Give this novel a miss! Try instead the son, which is a fantastic read!

          "Most satisfyingly we can now see the organic shape that Nesbo always intended his work to take, and the canvas stretching out in front of us is a crowded one" Good Book Guide "A fascinating book, filling in the gaps in Hole's biography and telling the story of the murder case in Australia that cemented his reputation as a brilliant investigator... A stunning opening to the series" Sunday Times "Nesbo 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" Sunday Express "Harry...is fully formed as the difficult, vulnerable personality we have come to know. The evocation of Australia itself has the customary Nesbo expertise...most satisfyingly - we can now see the organic shape that Nesbo always intended his work to take" -- Barry Forshaw Independent "Whether a hardened Hole addict or a first-time imbiber, The Bat is sure to snare your interest with its tale of this booze-fuelled policeman" Sunday Sun
