Cockroaches by Jo Nesbo | Review

Cockroaches by Jo Nesbo | Re..

Review: I loved The Bat by Jo Nesbo so I was excited to read Cockroaches. Cockroaches is the second book in the Harry Hole series, but I’ve seen many people say to skip directly to the third book because the first two aren’t as good as the rest of them. I genuinely hate skipping books in […]
