Cracking Crime: Cockroaches by Jo Nesbo

Cockroaches by Jo Nesbo

Make room for a Nesbo thriller in your suitcase!

About the book

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?

It’s Dead Good because…

This is the second in the bestselling and hugely popular Harry Hole series where, like in the first book The Bat, Harry is sent abroad to investigate a mysterious death. It’s such a brilliant thriller because Harry is out of his depth. He’s in a strange, hot, dark and alien country – yet those most dangerous and difficult are the Norwegians living out there, by their own rules. Harry is supposed to be avoiding scandal, solving the murder neatly and quietly before returning home. But with Harry, nothing ever goes to plan!

The Sun called Cockroaches a ‘sure-fire hit’, Shortlist said ‘you’ll be utterly enthralled’ and the Sunday Mirror called it ‘an absolute treat’ – this hot, dangerous thriller is the perfect beach companion this summer
