Harry is on a special mission.
Detective Harry Hole arrives in a steaming hot Bangkok. The Norwegian ambassador has been found dead in a seedy motel room, and Harry has been sent to investigate. It’s clear that the Ambassador’s family are hiding some secrets of their own, but few people are willing to talk. He needs to solve a crime and avoid a scandal.
When Harry lays hands on some incriminating CCTV footage, things only get more complicated. The man who gave him the tape goes missing, and Harry realises that failing to solve a murder case is by no means the only danger that faces the unwary. But in an unfamiliar city, who can you trust?

Cochroaches by Jo Nesbo
Yes. enjoyable story with a clever twist
I’ve previously read all of Jo Nesbo’s Harry Hole thrillers as books, but decided to give this one a go as an audio book.
The narrator, Sean Barrett does a great job of bringing the characters to life and the story is a good one to. At first I found the Norwegian names (there are also a lot of Thai characters in this one) confusing but I soon got drawn in to the story.
I’ll definitely give other Jo Nesbo books a try as audio books—highly recommended!
Why did they make us wait so long?
This is the second Harry Hole novel, but has only just come out on Audible (perhaps only just translated into English?). Sean Barrett is a great narrator, you can tell all the time whose voice is speaking, even before you are told who it is. The story has great twists and turns, several suspects, and references back to relationships and characters in his previous overseas experience in Sydney. Highly recommended.
