Personal Rating:  3.5/5 (good)

A son breaks out of prison to avenge his father's death.

Boo.  I was really hoping that this one would knock my socks off.  :(  It did have some interesting components in its storyline, but I didn't believe it.  Everything seemed to run a bit over the top.  I do like Nesbo's writing style, though, and I look forward to reading more Harry Hole books.

    1. Les ~ I'm reading them in order, so I've only read The Bat. I thought it was "good," but have heard they get better and better.

      P.S. I just saw that you commented on my comment back to you. :) FYI - I sent you an email the other day.

  3. When I get to Nesbo I'm sticking with the Harry Hole series.

    1. Stacybuckeye ~ I desperately want to LOVE the HH series. I hope I get there. The first was good, but I want them to be great. Is that too much to ask for? :)
