Harry Hole is back in a gripping twist-packed read.

'One of Nesbo's most accomplished novels' Financial Times


Harry is on a special mission.


Detective Harry Hole arrives in a steaming hot Bangkok. The Norwegian ambassador has been found dead in a seedy motel room, and Harry has been sent to investigate. It's clear that the Ambassador's family are hiding some secrets of their own, but few people are willing to talk.

He needs to solve a crime and avoid a scandal.

When Harry lays hands on some incriminating CCTV footage, 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 that faces the unwary.

But in an unfamiliar city, who can you trust?

MEDIA REVIEWS
As with the Australian setting of The Bat, Hole's first outing, we're again terra incognita (Asia here); Cockroaches, organised with greater concentration than its predecessor, turns out to be one of Nesbo's most accomplished novels * Financial Times *
Cockroaches will thrill Harry Hole addicts. It's classic fast-paced, edge-of-the-seat style * UK Press Syndication *
It's fun to see Nesbo finding his feet with Hole...and he weaves a large cast and a complex plot into a satisfying plunge into a filthy south-east Asian underbelly, ripe to bursting with corruption, exploitation and cruelty * Metro *
If you've never read any Jo Nesbo, now is the perfect time to check out his excellent Harry Hole series * Essentials *

“Getting there...!”

“Quite good.”

You can tell this is one of the earlier books in the series. It doesn't quite have what the latter ones do. That being solid characters and taut plot lines. There are a few surprises and some clever misdirection... More

“Enjoyable to fill in the series”

This is second in the trilogy and I enjoyed it more than "The Bat" . It is no where near as good as his latest book "Knife" but I'm committed now to go through the full series! Some of the... More
