Detective Harry Hole arrives in a steaming hot Bangkok. But it's work, not pleasure. The Norwegian ambassador has been found dead in a seedy motel room, and no witnesses have come forward. The ambassador had close ties to the Norwegian prime minister, and to avoid a scandal Harry is sent there to hush up the case. But he quickly discovers that there is much more going on behind the scenes and very few people willing to talk. When Harry lays hands on some CCTV footage that will help him unravel what happened that night, 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 in Bangkok.

Loved this book - I don't recall reading any of Nesbo's mysteries before but now I'm hooked. I started off being a bit irritated with what i thought would be another alcoholic's story but that turned out to be a very minor detail that barely figured in the tale. I loved the Thai setting and atmosphere and I was surprised by the ending - that's a very good thing in a mystery. I'll be searching for others of Mr. Harry Hole's stories

I thoroughly enjoyed this Harry Hole story, even though I have read later books in the series before this.

Nesbo is a first-class writer in my book.

Although I am a Harry Hole fan, I really did not care for this particular book.

A great start to the series. It is very interesting to see how Harry develops and is changed throughout the series. He seems more innocent and naive in this book, but much more haunted.
