    1. I confess that I was pleasantly surprised by this book. It’s the second in Jo Nesbo’s series featuring Norwegian homicide detective Harry Hole, and as those who follow the series know, for whatever reason, Nesbo’s publishers did not release the books in order here in the U.S. Rather, they jumped into the middle of the series first. I assumed that this was because they felt that the first couple of books were not as good as the latter ones and so wanted to put Nesbo’s (and Harry’s) best [...]

    2. Norwegians living and dying in Bangkok.And lots of cavorting too.Whether you’re a Dirty Harry Callahan fan or prefer your super sleuths wearing a deer slayer hat, fans of the crime mystery genre have hit on a cool fact: Scandinavians make good crime fiction.Certainly the late Stieg Larsson has captured the lion’s share of the recent market, but Norwegian writer Jo Nesbo has found a winning formula with his Harry Hole stories. Published in 1998, Cockroaches (Kakerlakkene in its original title [...]

    3. Harry Hole (as in the hula of the hula hoop) is quite the guy. He’s fighting his demons simultaneously with the bad guys. He is seconded to Thailand this time (book number one was Sydney) to hunt down the killer of the Ambassador to Norway. I really love this character affectionately known as Hula, but the stories aren’t doing it for me. I will keep persisting though to try and get a better grip of Harry. I did the audio again, as my library doesn’t have a great range to choose from and th [...]

    4. This book adds nicely to my growing affection for Oslo Detective Harry Hole and admiration for Nesbo. This is the second in the series, though only published in English in 2013. It’s an away game like the first one, set in Bangkok this time, Sydney for the first. Odd as that seems for founding a series, it works for me to effectively highlight Harry’s essential character as a lone man deserving to brought in out of the rain before he gets too alienated.The case here concerns the murder of th [...]

    5. Pise iznad "What did (do) you think?"Mislim da je ovo najlosiji krimi triler koji sam ikad procitao. Dosadna prica, predvidljiva, puna klisea a tek plot holes, omgJako jako lose, a ovog puta za razliku od Slepog misa nije bilo niti jednog zanimljivog sporednog lika.Likovi su uopste najslabija strana obe knjige, papir do papira, pogotovo zenski likovi.Mozda su bubasvabe bile jedini likovi vredni pomena jer se pominju u nekoliko navrata i to mi je bilo i najzanimljivije od svega. A zavrsnica je bi [...]

    6. Book ReviewFor readers new to Jo Nesbo's Harry Hole series, I would say that most of the reviews and comments you see here on GR regarding this second installment in the series are fairly spot-on. First, what most of us experience as readers is a sense of frustration at having the Nesbo novels published out of sequence (in that respect, most of us started with #3 in the series). You'll read about this. The explanation, from the point of view of the publishers, is that all of them including Nesbo [...]

    7. Περισσότερα στο μπλογκ για όποι@ ενδιαφέρεται.Περιέργως ξεκίνησα από το 2ο βιβλίο της σειράς με τον επιθεωρητή Χόλε, αν και εικάζω ότι λίγη σημασία έχει αυτό στην κατανόησή του ως χαρακτήρα. Αρχικά βρήκα ενδιαφέρουσα την επιλογή του Νέσμπε να απομακρυνθεί από την Σκανδιναβ [...]

    8. Το 2ο βιβλίο της σειράς του Χάρι Χολε δε με τρέλανε. Γεγονός. Υπήρχαν αρκετά οικονομικά αλισβερίσια και δε καταλάβαινα τι γινόταν σ ' αυτά τα σημεία. Άσε που όλοι οι χαρακτήρες (πλην του Χολε) ήταν καινούριοι οπότε έπρεπε να μάθω πόσα νέα ονόματα (και να σημειωθεί ότι επισήμως [...]

    9. First a clarification: While the translation is marketed as 'an early Harry Hole case' Cockroaches is the second Hole novel by Mr Nesbo.Second the answer to: Is it worth going backwards through time to read this one? Yes indeed.Sent to Thailand in the hopes of being too drunk to solve a murder too sensitive to be solved, Harry finds himself drunk sweating and out of his depth in Bangkok. The novel balances Harry's personal life, own demons and the murder mystery well. Focusing mostly on the acti [...]

    10. Harry Hole is a train-wreck. I think that is pretty clear. He is chosen to investigate a crime/murder in Thailand. He is chosen mainly because he is an alcoholic and the powers that be hope that perhaps Hole will bumble the investigation and it can be swept under the rug if you will. The Norwegian Ambassador to Thailand has been found dead in a Bangkok brothel with a knife sticking out of his back. Instead of bumbling the case, Hole gets to Thailand and, although he has his demons, he gets to wo [...]

    11. This is the second book in the Harry Hole series. Cockroaches is a notch up from "The Bat" from the standpoint of intrigue and depth. I shall carry on with the Harry Hole adventures and see where the next story takes him.

    12. Οι Κατσαρίδες είναι το δεύτερο κατά σειρά βιβλίο της σειράς, με πρωταγωνιστή τον Χάρι Χόλε.Εγώ , βέβαια (όπως νομίζω και πολύ άλλοι , καθόσον οι εκδόσεις των βιβλίων της σειράς δεν έγιναν με την κανονική σειρά) το άφησα για το τέλος και συγκεκριμένα προτελευταίο, με τελευταίο [...]

    13. Leave it to me for crying out loud. If I give five stars, everyone else gives three and if I give three, everyone else (talking about my friends) well, everyone else gives five. I really, really enjoyed this #2 in the series. Anyone who has been following Harry Hole knows they've been published in English out of sequence and everyone has been griping about it. Understandably, since most of us reading series, any series, enjoys reading them in order. So while my friends (and professional critics, [...]

    14. I think that what makes Harry such a great character, caring and tenacious in his work is what is his downfall on a personal level. What to do after caring so much, how to handle the weight of the world. Can you live a life without being effected by what happens to you, I don't think so, certainly Harry cannot and sadly his way of dealing with the ghosts is deadly.A different book than the first, as if Bangkok is quite different than Sydney, which is more than true. And I've noticed that for Nes [...]

    15. I may be the only person on who hates this series. But I do. I so, so do.The narrator is an alcoholic who somehow manages to stumble his sodden way into solving murders. He isn't very well characterized, and I don't much care about him or his reasons for being a drunk.The female characters of these books (and I read and didn't like The Bat, too) are stereotypes. They're all hookers, or junkies, or in love with the "hero," or ugly and butch, like the description of the "main" female character in [...]

    16. The second installment to the Det. Harry Hole series, Cockroaches was an interesting read. Initially it starts off moving forward with the murder of a Norwegian Ambassador sends Hole packing to Thailand. Fresh off the success and fame of his first case featured in The Bat, he's the numero uno choice to head this case off. Hole navigates the criminal underworld (that isn't so underish) of Thailand all while battling his own personal demons in an effort to find the killer from a host of various su [...]

    17. summer readathon 16country NORWAYΔεύτερη περιπέτεια του Χάρι κ φαίνεται. Θέλει ακόμα πλάσιμο ο χαρακτήρας κ η ιστορία. Καλό αλλά τα επόμενα ακόμα καλλίτερα (χιονάνθρωπος, κοκκινολαίμης κλπ). Έχω ακόμα 4-5 στην άκρη να μου κρατάνε συντροφιά! Χάρι θα σε ξαναδώ σύντομα ;)

    18. Μπορεί ο αγαπημένος μας επιθεωρητής να μπήκε μεθυσμένος στο αεροπλάνο για Μπανγκόκ, προκειμένου να διερευνήσει το φόνο του Άτλε Μούλνες, του Νορβηγού πρέσβη στην Ταϋλάνδη, αλλά την έβγαλε ξεμέθυστος καθ'όλη τη διάρκεια της λύσης του μυστηριώδους φόνου. Ο Ντάγκριν Τούρχους [...]

    19. I don't know how Harry could put all these puzzle pieces together, and found out WHO it was and even more astonishing HOW this person(I on purpose don't use personal pronouns, not to give away anything) DID it. And a fleeting thought about (WHY DID this person do it in THAT DAMN COMPLICATED way) crossed my mind AFTER I learned HOW everything was implemented. Doesn't matter, I couldn't put it down. It was a thrilling read, and educational too. The second book in Harry Hole series is set in Thaila [...]

    20. The Norwegian ambassador, a friend of the Prime Minister, has been found in a Bangkok motel/brothel with a knife in his back. The Norwegian government has requested that detective Harry Hole fly to Thailand to work on the case with the Thai police. Why was the depressed alcoholic Hole chosen? There are politicians that want to cover up the sordid details, and they feel the self-destructive Hole will be too busy drowning his sorrows to do a thorough investigation. But Harry sobers up, and looks d [...]

    21. The second outing or adventure of Harry Hole. He is send to a hot Bangkok because the Norwegian ambassador has been found murdered. Harry is send for two reasons: his media profile due to the last case he did solve and because he is a total alcoholic who is sure to f#ck up and mess up any chance of solving anything and therefor not embarrass any potential diplomatic situation. However they have underestimated Hole's self destructing personality as he swears of alcohol for the time being and as a [...]

    22. Cockroaches is the second in Jo Nesbø's Harry Hole series. Norwegian police officer Harry Hole is back in Norway after solving a case in Australia (I have to backtrack and read that one). Now he is sent off to solve a case in Thailand, a seemingly simple (but of course not) murder of the Norwegian ambassador.Harry is in full glory in this story, trying (sometimes successfully) to stay sober (or at least dry). Thailand is beautifully evoked and the atmosphere is both exotic and creepy. I found m [...]

    23. Η δεύτερη υπόθεση του Χάρι Χόλε και το δεύτερο βιβλίο του Nesbø που διάβασα. Μπορώ να πω με μεγάλη χαρά πως ήταν διαφορετικό από τη Νυχτερίδα (στο οποίο αισθανόμουν πως διαρκώς φλυαρούσε άνευ λόγου). Στις κατσαρίδες, ήταν μεστός, πιο συνειδητοποιημένος και πιο ουσιώδης. Με ενθ [...]

    24. This is my third Jo Nesbø book and the second in Harry Hole series.Norway’s ambassador to Thailand is murdered in a motel room ostensibly waiting for a prostitute. To avoid scandal, recovering alcoholic detective Harry Hole is sent to “solve the murder” aka put a lid on it. This was an enjoyable read. A solid mystery/ thriller with decent twists.

    25. He saw something move in the gloomhe had read that there were more than three thousand different types of cockroach. He had also read that they hide when they hear the vibrations of someone approaching and that for every cockroach you can see there are at least ten hiding.Harry is sent to Thailand to investigate the murder of Atle Molne, the Norwegian ambassador to Thailand, who was found in a motel with a knife in his back. He's warned to stay sober (yeah, right) and to proceed discreetly; afte [...]

    26. I've previously read 2 other Jo Nesbo, Harry Hole, mysteries, The Redbreast and Nemesis. Cockroaches takes place just before The Redbreast, is, in fact, the 2nd in the Harry Hole series. In this story, Harry is sent to Thailand to help the Thai police (his main contact is Liz, a woman investigator, born in the US, but who moved back to Thailand with her mother when her American father died). There is a varied cast of characters, Norwegian ex-pats, foreign service personnel and Thai police. The s [...]

    27. Το δεύτερο βιβλίο της σειράς με ήρωα τον αλκοολικό ντετέκτιβ Χάρι Χόλε, μας ταξιδεύει από το Όσλο στην Ταϋλάνδη.Ο συγγραφέας εμφανίζεται εδώ αρκετά κριτικός και επικριτικός, για μια χώρα όμορφη μεν αλλά που έχει καταλήξει το χωνευτήριο του κάθε διαταραγμένου και διεστραμέ [...]

    28. Suç romanlarına özel bir ilgim yok ama arada bir türünün iyi örneklerini okumak hem keyif veriyor, hem de kafa dağıtıyor. Garip bir şekilde, herhalde dünyanın en güvenli bölgelerinden olan İskandinav yazarlar bu alanda da gayet başarılı. Daha önce Menkell, Larsson gibi yazarları zevkle okumuştum. Jo Nesbo’yu ise ilk kez okudum. Dünya çapında büyük sükse yapan, “serin” karakterli dedektif Harry Hole serisinin ikinci kitabıymış bu eser. Bangkok’ta karanlık i [...]

    29. "Cockroaches" follows Norwegian policeman Harry to Thailand, sent by superiors to look into the shady death of an ambassador. He is hand-picked to represent the interests of his country after an impressive showing in Australia in the novel "The Bat."Among his problems and issues are his fondness for whiskey and his general disdain for his higher-ups. He discovers a semi-rapport with his Thai counterparts, especially the American expatriate who has the responsibility for this investigation.Inspec [...]
