5.0 out of 5 stars Harry's last name, May 14, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Redeemer (A Harry Hole Mystery) (Paperback)
To all those that love the Harry Hole nlovels, have you ever wondered about his name. Harry Hole.

I did.I contacted his publishing company, they told me it was pronounced...

"O"like in "pool" and "e"like in "ethnic"

Harry Hoooley. I like that MUCH better than Harry Hole.
Be sure and read The Redeemer AFTER The Devils Star, the last few pages go back to Devils Star, WOW!

Thanks for the info on how to pronounce his name. : )
When I tell my friends about how much I am into Harry Hole character and they laugh.
It's like saying 'hairy hole'. I wish Nesbo's first 2 books are translated soon.

I think "Hoooley" takes it too far. How about, "Hool-e" where the e at the end is pronounced like the e in "open" and not like ey as in "hockey".

Hol-eh comes closer. But the o Hol is somewhat more like the oo in pool. Actually, there's no English equivalent.

The narrator for the audiobook pronounces it like the English word. Compared to all the other Scandanavian names, it sounds out of place pronounced that way.
