Set in Rome, I started the series part way through so have gone back to the very first one to &quot;start&quot; from there.

As a result I&#39;ve put it down and haven&#39;t gone back to it.<br /><br />Jo Nesbo has been billed in the UK as the next Stieg Larsson, and he is getting a lot of coverage in both real and virtual bookstores here. This makes failing to get anywhere with the first of his books that I read especially disappointing.Alanhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/02491729578618258942noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-4329799323249520672.post-90149619432343025012011-04-29T09:58:05.988-04:002011-04-29T09:58:05.988-04:00Haven&#39;t heard of this series.

I also have some books in my backlog by Jo Nesbø and Kjell Erickson, and the Mankells that don&#39;t have Wallander as the central character.
