The thrilling sequel to Jo Nesbo''s debut novel, The Bat, The Cockroaches sees Harry Hole sent to Bangkok to investigate the murder of the Norwegian ambassador.
     Detective Harry Hole arrives in a steaming hot Bangkok. But it''s work, not pleasure. The Norwegian ambassador has been found dead in a seedy motel room, and no witnesses have come forward. The ambassador had close ties to the Norwegian prime minister, and to avoid a scandal Harry is sent there to hush up the case. But he quickly discovers that there is much more going on behind the scenes and very few people willing to talk. When Harry lays hands on some CCTV footage that will help him unravel what happened that night, things only get more complicated. The man who gave him the tape goes missing, and Harry realises that failing to solve a murder case is by no means the only danger in Bangkok.

About the Author

JO NESBO is a musician, songwriter, economist and author. His first crime novel featuring Harry Hole was published in Norway in 1997 and was an instant hit, winning the Glass Key Award for best Nordic crime novel (an accolade shared with Peter Høeg, Henning Mankell and Stieg Larsson). Never before published in English, Cockroaches is the second novel in the Harry Hole series.

Editorial Reviews

#1 INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER

"Surprisingly fresh, compelling and radiant with the joy of writing."
-Helsingin Sanomat (Finland)

"Jo Nesbø has written a substantial and well-constructed crime novel with a true Nordic hero as main character…. The plot is so complicated that you have no chance at figuring out the murderer until the last page. Hang on to it with great pleasure-Jo Nesbø writes so well and incisively about the crowds in the streets, and about a socially blighted Bangkok."
-ALT for damerne (Denmark)

"Last year's debut novel The Bat wasn't just a fluke. Nesbø continues with The Cockroaches, a true ex-pat mixture of the creepy and gruesome kind…. Look forward to a great read."
-Verdens Gang (Norway)
 
"There's a sense of grandeur and near-extravagance in Nesbo's novel."
-Aftenposten (Norway)

"As [a] crime novel, The Cockroaches offers excitement to the very last straw. However, this is not the only reason it is a pleasure to read it: Jo Nesbø is a master of language, and offers vivid descriptions owing to thorough research."
-Dagsavisen (Norway)
