It isn’t until one of Harry’s Australian police force colleagues passes away that his alcoholism comes to the fore, making him both brilliant in terms of solving the investigation and destructive in terms of the laws he’ll break to see justice done. Here I am sitting in a bar, Harry thought, listening to a transvestite lecturing on Australian politics. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Harry Hole is sent from Norway to assist Australian police with the murder of a blonde Norwegian woman. It starts when the Indigenous police officer Andrew Kensington painstakingly explains Aboriginal culture to Hole.

The beginning of the series starts with a simmer, and by the time of the 13th book, the serial killings had become quite outlandish as the author seemingly felt he had to one-up himself. Instruction from the Royal Norwegian Police Force is to stay out of the way of the local police department, but to "help" solve the case.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'. They topped the charts in Norway, but Nesbo continued working as a financial analyst, crunching numbers during the day and gigging at night. He feigns surprise and answers that he’s from Queensland, causing Hole to splutter an embarrassed apology. The mystery itself is pretty standard fare, a woman is killed, and slowly we discover she was the latest victim of a serial killer.

Within minutes of seeing her behind the bar, Hole can’t resist asking out a Swedish woman who worked with the dead Norwegian, having admired her long red hair, willowy back (? At first I thought it was a young adult mystery because the sentence structure was so basic and simple. Hole is assisted by Aboriginal colleague Andrew Kensington; together they find out that they are dealing with a serial killer who strangles blonde women.She lived with her boyfriend in Newtown for a while before they split up and she moved to a little one-­room flat in Glebe. There are several digressions into the culture of the Indigenous peoples of the continent as well as a bit of a history lesson thrown in, too. Had the weather been a little worse the waves would definitely have carried her out, but instead she lay among the rocks until she was found. During this time Harry and Andrew have spent increasing time at the bar Inger worked out, meeting all sorts of characters. The East Side of Sydney’s not exactly like the East End of London,” Andrew explained as they passed one fashionable house after another.

We’ve given ’em what we’ve got, and that’s not a great deal, so they’ll soon be bored and bugger off home. Hope you enjoyed the flight,” the stranger said with evident sincerity, like an echo of the air hostess’s announcement twenty minutes earlier.In the car park Kensington unlocked the boot of a small, well-­used Toyota and shoved in the suitcase. Pavlov and his experiments in conditioning is one of those things that I can’t believe isn’t widely known.
