This is actually the 2nd in the Harry Hole series but not translated until now. You get a lot on the background and history of Harry. He has a lot of problems including that he is an alcoholic. It is why he was sent to Thailand to work on the murder of the Norwegian ambassador there. The powers in Norway wanted just that nothing would be found. But Harry pulls himself together and a great detective story follows. It is a great read. I am doing them in series and expect Nesbo's writing to improve as the series continues. He is a great writer. Great article on him in a recent New Yorker magazine.

I enjoyed this a lot. The Norwegian ambassador to Thailand is found murdered in a seedy motel and child pornography is found in his car. Harry Hole is sent from Oslo to sort out what the hell happened. I really enjoyed the atmosphere of the Thailand setting and the Norwegian expat community there. An interesting mystery which takes some unexpected turns!
