"Surprisingly fresh, compelling and radiant with the joy of writing."
--"Helsingin Sanomat" (Finland)
"Jo Nesbo has written a substantial and well-constructed crime novel with a true Nordic hero as main character.... The plot is so complicated that you have no chance at figuring out the murderer until the last page. Hang on to it with great pleasure--Jo Nesbo writes so well and incisively about the crowds in the streets, and about a socially blighted Bangkok."
--"ALT for damerne" (Denmark)
"Last year's debut novel "The Bat" wasn't just a fluke. Nesbo continues with "The Cockroaches", a true ex-pat mixture of the creepy and gruesome kind.... Look forward to a great read."
--"Verdens Gang" (Norway)
"There's a sense of grandeur and near-extravagance in Nesbo's novel."
"As [a] crime novel, "The Cockroaches" offers excitement to the very last straw. However, this is not the only reason it is a pleasure to read it: Jo Nesbo is a master of language, and offers vivid descriptions owing to thorough research."
