Every summer I reunite with Harry Hole, and this summer was not a disappointment. We catch up; okay, so it’s mostly him telling me what he’s been up to.
The recently released first in the Harry Hole (pronounced holy) series, was by far a welcome respite from some of the beachy reads that have not exactly lived up to expectations. One of my favorite flawed characters, it was awesome to FINALLY be able to read the first installment in the series.
The Bat follows Detective Hole to Sydney where he is investigating the death of a Norwegian citizen. As someone who has spent considerable time in Australia, I enjoyed reading about my favorite character in a city I knew well. I could vividly imagine the neighborhoods he wanders and picture in my mind the places described.
Expect the usual exciting plot twists and turns that will keep you reading until the early hours of the morning. The only disappointment I experienced with The Bat was when I realized it was over.
Alas, see you next summer, Detective Hole.
