Description
When the Norwegian ambassador to Thailand is found dead in a Bangkok brothel, Inspector Harry Hole is dispatched from Oslo to help hush up the case, in this 1998 novel—the second in Jo Nesbø's gripping, wildly popular series, and finally available in English with this 2013 translation. But once Harry arrives he discovers that there is something else creeping around behind the scenes, something more pervasive than one random murder, and he is reminded that for every cockroach you see, hundreds more lurk behind the walls. As he wanders Bangkok's streets, full of go-go bars, temples, opium dens, and tourist traps, Harry can't help trying to piece together the ambassador's death, even though no one wants him to.

"The complex narrative and large dramatis personae are handled with steely authority.... The picturesque seediness of Bangkok and Thailand turns out to be Harry Hole's natural element, with Nesbø plumping his hero down in a very non-Norwegian setting."—Independent (London)
