MEDIA REVIEWS
"A fascinating book, filling in the gaps in Hole's biography and telling the story of the murder case in Australia that cemented his reputation as a brilliant investigator... A stunning opening to the series" * Sunday Times *
"Meaty, big and bloody, this is the rock and roll of detective fiction" * Financial Times *
"Nesbo is a terrific writer who knows how to build a story, taking you slowly to the top of a rollercoaster before sending you hurtling towards a solution that you never see coming" * Sunday Express *
"Harry Hole is fully formed as the difficult, vulnerable personality we have come to know. The evocation of Australia itself has the customary Nesbo expertise...most satisfyingly - we can now see the organic shape that Nesbo always intended his work to take" -- Barry Forshaw * Independent *
"Whether a hardened Hole addict or a first-time imbiber, The Bat is sure to snare your interest with its tale of this booze-fuelled policeman" * Sunday Sun *
"A searing read from a chilling thriller writer" * Independent *
"Hole is a spiky character and this is the first novel to feature him. If you want to get to know this brilliant, flawed character, this is the best place to start" -- William Leith * Scotsman *

“Fabulous read”

I found this to be one of my favourite Harry Hole
