If You Were the U. S. Editor of this Series, . .

. . . would you have changed the main character's name?

Harry Hole - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: "Harry Hole is the main character in a series of, so far, seven crime novels written by Jo Nesbo. Hole is a classic loose cannon in the police force, with few close friends and some unorthodox methods. Hole is a heavy smoker and an alcoholic. The latter brings him into repeated conflict with his superiors and some of his colleagues, but Bjarne Moller, head of Hole's department and one of his closest friends, manages to prevent him from being kicked out. This is not primarily due to pity, but the fact that Harry Hole is also a brilliant detective."

My inner fifth-grader just blew milk out his nose.

I should've put up another juvenile humor warning.

If he was English he could live on Slutshole Lane.

At least it's not a female character. Can you imagine one called Honey Hole?

Two things:

First, why were you on wikipedia looking up the phrase "Harry Hole?"

Second, in my actual juvenile years there was a detective television show starring David Jansen titled "Harry O," but I, and my sophisticated friends, called him Harry Hole.

So that guy stole the name from you?
