I don’t know how long this project will take me given that I get free books all the time from publishers and then also review books for a trade publication on top of having a day job (and I’m trying to now have something of a social life). In fairness I wasn't all that impressed with Nesbo's next thriller 'Redbreast' either but that's more personal taste than a continuing lack of writing skill.

Harry learns of Andrews history as a boxer when he takes Harry to see a boxing match of the Jim Chivers boxing team. We also learn that Harry realized his problems with alcohol while he was drinking on duty, he was drunk his partner was in the car with them, and they sped off to chase a suspect. It smacked of Nesbø having done some reading up on the subject and putting his non-Indigenous take on it into Kensington’s mouth.The Bat begins in the most non-Nordic location imaginable, with Harry Hole arriving in Sydney, Australia. They make a point of mentioning it as "The Redbreast" ,the third Harry Hole novel, was the first to come out in English. Otto, a large masculine man, whom I would love to see in drag, knew Inger well, and quickly comes under suspicion of Harry Hole. K. we were denied the first two books hence my initial delay in committing to a series from the third instalment. The finale to this one seemed a bit rushed and weak, certainly not overwhelmingly satisfying or exciting as some crime thrillers are.

When he eventually works out who the killer is, having led his Australian colleagues down a few blind alleys, he almost instantly has deep insight into who he is, which made me wonder why he hadn’t worked it out sooner. Nope, it was poorly written, equally poorly translated and lacked an editor to ensure that the translation made sense in English. Hole is assisted by Aboriginal colleague Andrew Kensington; together they find out that they are dealing with a serial killer who strangles blonde women. Whether it was the photograph or his name that had initially put her in such a cheery mood was hard to say. I was wondering whether sir was the right mode of address to a superior officer in this country, or whether it was a little too'.Thus, that’s what makes the latter half of The Bat so readable, even as it gets a little farfetched at times. One would think that the trail had gone cold, Harry as drunk of a mess that he is, but amazingly his mental faculties are still intact.
