A warning: I read the German translation, since I would have needed two months trying to read the Norwegian original. This translation is lousy, or, alternatively, the English translator of the other books was so good that he made bad writing look good in translation. In other words: Why then 2 stars and not 1?
Because there are strong chapters, mainly those dealing with Hole in the early phase of the case, transported to The Land Down Under and trying to find his bearing.
That is quite good, actually. But then the plot unfolds and leaves you cold in all its overdone heat. The book's title? There seems to be an Aboriginal myth of death as a bat. The bad guy is a serial killer. Go to site. Back to top. Get to Know Us. site Web Services Goodreads Shopbop. Enhanced Typesetting: Page Flip: I get that Harry is, like all great detectives, a haunted man. But this was a piss poor narration of his troubles. There are a bunch of horrid events narrated to an exposition device, but if this narration had any emotion attached to it, or introspection, it must have passed me by.
Harry didn't impress me otherwise - his professional ethics are questionable at best, and is thrown out of the window the minute he has a crisis. What's he doing in a police force especially after he view spoiler [has already gotten someone killed hide spoiler ]? In this book, he doesn't even come across as bright.
But then again, every other policeman is worse than he is, so there's that. There's much gushing about Australia, but it's done in an overly enthusiastic new tourist way.
I don't think this had much depth either. An utter disappointment, this book. And to think the completist in me will want to read the second book that will be out in December! I received a copy of this book for review via NetGalley. So, what makes The Bat so terrible? Well, it was lots of things. Mostly, there were too many detective genre cliches. Harry is an alcoholic, who somehow still has a job with the Norwegian police view spoiler [after getting getting behind the wheel drunk and causing a major car accident in which a colleague is killed hide spoiler ].
After hitting a wall in the investigation, he relapses, and then manages to solve the case.
Where are all the women? Well, there's the murder victim. But as far as So, what makes The Bat so terrible? But as far as women who are alive?

There is one major female character and she's only a part of the plot so that Harry has someone to talk at and sleep with. Presumably, so that she can be used as bait for the serial killer later on UGH, why would she agree to do that? None of this plot makes sense!
And the only female witness that is interviewed is the mother of one of the main suspects. Apparently I'm not the only one to find The Bat kind of terrible. If you look at the average ratings for the Harry Hole series, it starts at 3.
It's comforting to know that the series gets better and better, which doesn't always happen. Many reviewers recommend starting with book 3. But, I can't bring myself to start a series in the middle. I have the second installment, Cockroaches , on hold and plan to read it too. Can I make it through 6 more Harry Hole books before watching the movie adaptation of book 7, The Snowman?
We'll see. Fascinating reading if you like Australian folk tales or Norwegian soap operas. A promising story about a reclusive serial killer turns into a rambling personal history of Detective Harry Hole through a series of flashbacks, memories, and improbable social interactions that tend to derail an interesting murder mystery.
Our despicable hero does finally manage to accidentally solve the case, but only after alienating everyone and getting a few innocent people killed. Nesbo is a talented story-tell Fascinating reading if you like Australian folk tales or Norwegian soap operas. Nesbo is a talented story-teller, but he does much better when he sticks to the mystery at hand and quits trying to create some artificial romance or personal trauma that we don't really want to hear.
I like some of the later stories featuring this bumbling alcoholic detective, but this book made me dislike the character intensely. If you are tempted to explore the world of Harry Hole, though, I would recommend The Snowman instead. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Well, I'm quite disappointed in this book. While the author's grammatically skilled, the story itself is quite flawed and his style is just so "male".
The story has a good premise and Australian bits are interesting, but it moves so slowly in parts I could barely pay attention. Really it's kind of like a drunken something wrote down his fantasy of being a skilled detective with a perfect lover girl he just met.
She miraculously just gets over it when he gets sloshed and screws a prostitute, a Well, I'm quite disappointed in this book.
She miraculously just gets over it when he gets sloshed and screws a prostitute, and he manages to solve a complicated serial crime the local cops totally missed. Plus he's an alcoholic who somehow manages to fall off the wagon and get totally plastered for a few days, then pulls out of it like nothing happened to solve the crime. While I hear the later books are better, I seriously doubt I'll ever read them since I could barely get through this one.
The Bat is a great read if you like tales about white men rescuing blonde women and brutally murdering aboriginal men, gay men, and prostitutes in the effort. Also a good choice for readers who prefer their villains to be black and their female leads to be two-dimensional disposable props for male protagonists. Nesbo illustrates a world of possible career paths for aboriginals, including psychopathic serial killer.

The writing style is difficult to follow and it jumps around a lot. While the book is presented as a mystery series and there is a case going on the focus is rarely on that aspect and it seems more like set dressing for a meandering exploration of aboriginal Australian culture by a bumbling outsider who isn't all that interested.
The main character is ignorant, and while the There are very few books that I don't follow through to the end but this one's been inducted into that very select group. The main character is ignorant, and while the author sort of castigated him for it on a few occasions the main character never seemed to internalize any of these lessons.
His back story didn't warm me to him either, though I suspect that was the intended effect. The series just didn't do it for me. I did like Andrew, Harry's partner, but the author did a lot more telling than showing, and I wish I could have learned about the character and his back story in a more organic way. If the story had been centered on Andrew instead of Harry and actually focused on the murder, I think I would have enjoyed it, but it also would have been an entirely different book.
View 1 comment. I had 'The Snowman' on my bookshelf and I thought I would like to read the previous books before that one so I started at the beginning with 'The Bat'. It irritated me so much.
It was slow paced, not much happening apart from lots of little 'stories' all the way through the book. Quite literally, the middle of the book, something interesting happened but then it went downhill again and I found myself skipping pages and then, after I discovered who the murderer was it just 'The Bat' in English. Quite literally, the middle of the book, something interesting happened but then it went downhill again and I found myself skipping pages and then, after I discovered who the murderer was it just confirmed who I thought it was all along , I stopped reading it.
Could not be bothered with it any more. Now I am wondering do I waste my money and time going through the other books before I reach 'The Snowman'? Libro di rara e imbarazzante bruttezza Non oso neanche definirlo un thriller!!! Li metade e desisti.
Jan 03, Mrs. Danvers rated it did not like it Shelves: Huh, not so crazy about this one. A little too much sturm und drang about the poor detective's emotional history, a little too little compassion for anyone else in the story.
Oh, dead? Dear dear, well, we mustn't be distracted. On with the show, etc. Yeah, give it a pass. This may be why it took so long to be translated.
Based on this, the first book in the series and my first Harry Hole book, I'm not clear why these are so popular. I can only assume they get better.
Maybe it was the translation or maybe it was that I was distracted but nothing seemed to flow together at all. Hole and his Australian partner, Andrew Kensington, seem to jet about the country with impunity.
I haven't been there but Australia sure seems like a big place and I'm sure they face the same budget problems that all police forces do.
And these two guys are roaming where they please? All of Hole's relationships get crazy-intense, crazy-fast. He and Kensington are immediately best friends forever. He meets the love interest the first day, I believe, and they almost immediately pledge lifelong and devotion.
Harry is also friendly with Gunnar Hagen, his former senior officer prior to the case chronicled in Phantom. In many ways, the author's home city of Oslo has the starring role in the Harry Hole novels. Much of the background detail of the stories involves real locations, and the city is shown "warts and all", ranging from Hole's favourite eating and drinking places that he frequents to the traffic of the so-called "Traffic Machine" road system, the real-life headquarters of the Police Department, the swimming pool at Frogner Park , to the haunts of neo-Nazis , drug addicts , and prostitutes , all of this described vividly in the various novels at different times of the year—in the snow and freezing weather of winter to the high temperatures of a particularly warm summer.
As of the events in Phantom , he no longer lives here, as he has been in Hong Kong for three years. Hanshaugen, which figures in most of the novels. He has had a serious relationship with Rakel Fauke, whose son, Oleg, looks up to Harry as a father figure and sometimes calls him "dad". After the case chronicled in The Snowman , their relationship is put under severe pressure, but at the end of Phantom they resume their romance and finally get married at the end of Police.
The word is pronounced as two syllables, with stress on the first hoo-leh , as is implied in The Bat , where the Australian police call him "Harry Holy".John Lee did do a pretty good job of narrating.
Enlarge cover. Sydney, New South Wales Australia. While the book is presented as a mystery series and there is a case going on the focus is rarely on that aspect and it seems more like set dressing for a meandering exploration of aboriginal Australian culture by a bumbling outsider who isn't all that interested.
