The Bat by Jo Nesbo and Don Bartlett digital book - Fable

Publisher Description

INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER • In the electrifying first installment of the New York Times bestselling series, Harry Hole of the Oslo Crime Squad is dispatched to Sydney to observe a murder case. As he circles closer to the killer, Harry begins to fear that no one is safe, least of all those investigating the murder.

The victim is a twenty-three year old Norwegian woman who is a minor celebrity back home. Harry is free to offer assistance, but he has firm instructions to stay out of trouble. Never one to sit on the sidelines, Harry befriends one of the lead detectives, and one of the witnesses, as he is drawn deeper into the case. Together, they discover that this is only the latest in a string of unsolved murders, and the pattern points toward a psychopath working his way across the country.

Don't miss Jo Nesbo's latest Harry Hole thriller, Killing Moon!

“Jo Nesbo Este libro fue una de las sorpresas que me traje de Atenas y que buena elección fue. El perfecto compañero para una espera larga en el aeropuerto. Mi novio tenía mucho tiempo insistiéndome en que me leyera algo de Jo Nesbo así que vi la oportunidad y la tomé. Y menos mal que fue así porque fue un descubrimiento de uno de los autores más populares de Thriller de los últimos tiempo. Es el primer libro de la serie de Harry Hole así que lo que nos muestra es una presentación de un detective complejo, que comete errores pero que lo soluciona, como un anti héroe. Está muy lejos de ser el personaje perfecto, que todo le sale bien sin ninguna razón aparente. Aquí sufrimos con él y con las decisiones que toma. El caso nos lleva a Australia en donde han asesinado a una chica noruega, por lo que el uinspector nórdico va a volar a la isla para ayudar a la policía local. El trabajo de documentación de Nesbo se nota en el libro: podemos ver y apreciar las diferencias entre australianos y noruegos, los diferentes paisajes, costumbres y tradiciones. Para mí esto es un plus. También entra en el terreno de personajes LGTBI, Drags y se siente el cambio de personalidades, de expresiones y de comportamientos. Como ya dije se nota mucho el trabajo de investigacíón previo ya que el libro se siente coherente y real. Sin dudarlo una lectura recomendada.”
Thumbs Up“I have been wanting to read this book forever. I love crime fiction and I thought I couldnt go wrong with Jo Nesbo. Nesbo follows all the rules of fair play when it comes to writing crime fiction. It was a great sunshine noir. Harry Hole, the mc, is a complicated guy, and I think this was a well done introduction to this character. Harry had some growth and some set backs throughout the story, and I'm curious to see how he continues to grow in the series.”
