I have had The Redbreast by Jo Nesbo on my Kindle for sometime and was about to finally read it, when I saw that The Bat, the first title in his much acclaimed Harry Hole series had finally been translated into English. In that case I thought I should really just start from the beginning, especially since The Bat is set in Australia! I purchased the audio version narrated by Sean Barratt, since I had previously enjoyed his narration of The Ignorance of Blood by Robert Wilson. Harry Hole is one of the more intriguing fictional heroes I have come across.
