The Bat by Jo Nesbo

Detective Harry Hole is meant to keep out of trouble. A young Norwegian girl on a gap year in Sydney has been murdered, and Harry has been sent to Australia to assist in any way he can. When the team unearths a string of unsolved murders and disappearances, nothing will stop Harry from finding out the truth. The hunt for a serial killer is on, but the murderer will only talk to Harry.

It’s entertaining enough but difficult to escape the idea of the traditional model of detectives being sent to Australia at the end of their careers rather than at the beginning. Can’t really complain though and a decent start to what is a pretty good series of books featuring Harry Hole who becomes a rather compelling character.
