The Bat

The Bat - Jo Nesbø I was glad I'd started this book last night as it turned out that I couldn't sleep until 3am (for someone who normally sleeps the minute the clock strikes midnight this is unusual). It was a good read with a number of plot twists. While not as strong as Jo Nesbo's later books, this isn't surprising given it is his debut novel. I enjoyed getting a chance to fill in the holes in the backstory which are never explained in the later novels and didn't mind the aboriginal stories that have annoyed a lot of other commentators.
