Cockroaches by Jo Nesbø
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
By now I've read the 2nd, 4th, 6th, 8th and 9th Harry Hole books. Yes, I'm doing this haphazardly! This had everything I'd expected from the series but lost points on the stereotype of why people go to Thailand and the things they get up to there. The corruption angle was good enough, why muddy things with pedophilia? That would have been rather refreshing... As always, when I read mystery series out of order, it's interesting seeing how the relationships so taken for granted later in the books form and settle.
