    I'd recommend it, but I am a bit biased. Over the years as I've been reading the Lee Child Reacher series I kept hearing good things about Jo Nesbo's Harry Hole books, so I picked them up and set them aside to read later. Now I am going through them in order as I did with the Reacher books.

    Here is the order (of the Harry Hole series):

    The Bat
    Cockroaches
    The Redbreast
    Nemesis
    The Devil's Star
    The Redeemer
    The Snowman
    The Leopard
    Phantom
    Police
    The Thirst
    Knife

    I know it might seem weird, but as a former aviator this piqued my interest.

    Overstory-e1502211715719.jpg

    Winner of the 2019 Pulitzer Prize in Fiction
    Shortlisted for the 2018 Man Booker Prize
    New York Times Bestseller
    A New York Times Notable Book and a Washington Post, Time, Oprah Magazine, Newsweek, Chicago Tribune, Kirkus Reviews, and Amazon Best Book of the Year


    Now Available in Paperback

    The Overstory, winner of the Pulitzer Prize in Fiction, is a sweeping, impassioned work of activism and resistance that is also a stunning evocation of—and paean to—the natural world. From the roots to the crown and back to the seeds, Richard Powers’s twelfth novel unfolds in concentric rings of interlocking fables that range from antebellum New York to the late twentieth-century Timber Wars of the Pacific Northwest and beyond. There is a world alongside ours—vast, slow, interconnected, resourceful, magnificently inventive, and almost invisible to us. This is the story of a handful of people who learn how to see that world and who are drawn up into its unfolding catastrophe.
