Tor | 8 comments I've tried searching everywhere but an English translation of Jo Nesbøs book "kakerlakkene" (translated to English: The Cockroaches) is not to be found. Not on openisbn, not on amazon no nothing. Can someone confirm this and if so delete it?

Ricardo Loureiro (thanabur) | 7 comments I've searched Library of Congress and could find several works featuring Harry Hole but none with such title. It needs further searches on British catalogues.

message 3: by Tor (new)

Tor | 8 comments Well, The British Library came up empty and too. The official British page for Jo Nesbø mentions that there are two books still not translated and Cockroaches is not mentioned in the list of translated books.
Case solved. Thanks for the help!

Dee (austhokie) | 838 comments His early books are supposedly being released later on this year - so that could be why

Someone might have created it as a placeholder based on that.
