During the first Harry Hole mystery Jo Nesbo takes the reader on a tour of Australia’s crime seen and ethnic problems. Hole investigates the murder of a woman from Oslo who has gone missing in Sydney. There are numerous twists and turns in the story and lays a sound foundation for the entire Harry Hole series. I could not find a copy of the US edition of the book but the UK edition that I read had an excellent translation. I recommend it very highly.
