5 One of the best detectives - everUsedBooksandGames | 22/03/2011 | See all UsedBooksandGames's reviews (14)I have now read all of the Harry Hole books that have been issued as paperbacks. It is important that new readers read the books in the order they were written as events that occur in the early books have impacts on tthe later books. The main character is like a Norwegian Harry Bosch. The story lines are complex and convoluted with twists coming fast and furious. Simply put - read these books.
