I've read a great deal of crime fiction. This is the best new author I've come across in years. I really could not put the book down, reading way past my bedtime and at every possible moment I could find. Inspector Harry Hole is a fascinating character who will appeal to fans of Ian Rankin's John Rebus.
Like most English speaking people I began reading Nesbos works starting at the third book. I have tried to find his first 2 in the Harry Hole series, but to no avail! Has someone read these books in English? Where did you buy them?
