I could not put the story down at the end because of the way it wrapped up the Red Breast story. If you are looking for the right book to pick up after Red Breast, this is it.
Nesbo's stories are complex enough that it is a good idea to have both the written and audible portion. Note to Amazon: Whispersync was not working even though my accounts said it would.
Great detective work, clever lines.
I can't wait to get my hands on the next Jo Nesbo book or audio book. Robin Sachs is the best narrator in the series. Never a dull moment reading or listening to this author. My favorite so far was the Snow Man and The Leopard.
Unexpected plot twists.
Yes, because of the plot twists.
He sounded like what I would imagine Harry Hole would sound like.
Guessing til the end!
Harry Hole, of course!
Robin Sachs' performance is spot on as usual. He is telling the story as if he is living it....i actually forget I am listening to a "book".
Nesbo's mysteries are always intricate and unpredictable. There were a variety of interesting characters in this one.
In my opinion, the narrator should be a younger-sounding guy who can do different voices. It's hard to tell who's talking.
This is Nesbo's very best Harry Hole novel. It has fascinating twists and turns and scenes that I am itching to see in a movie one day. Rarely does an audiobook make my heart pound while I listen to it, but this one did several times. One again Robin Sachs narrates and does a perfect job. He is fantastic with every character. You must make a point to keep up with the names as they are all Nordic and not naturally easy to remember - at least not for this English speaker.
IMPORTANT NOTE: IT SEEMS "The Leopard" BY NESBO HAS BEEN RE-RECORDED USING ROBIN SACHS. I recommend you listen to a sample of it and if the voice is the same as this book, go for it. Thor Knai's name is still on as narrator, but when I clicked on sample today I heard Robin Sachs! Great news!
harry hole is so damaged you just have to support him.
I love this series, its as good as all the Walander novels
i always look for his work because he makes the story so appealing
This is the second Jo Nesbo I have listened to and both are wonderful. Smart and well-paced, it really kept my interest. If you like Jo Nesbo you might also like the Roy Grace series by Peter James.
I am enjoying Nesbo's Harry Hole series. Nesbo is strong in his characterizations and descriptive passages. The narration is perfect for the material. Overall, very well done
My third Jo Nesbo/Harry Hole novel, and so far I think it's the best. I am excited to read the next few books. The story is complex, there are several themes, the obvious one of the murders and who done it, then the politics of the police and what's going on there, then lastly Harry's life and relationships with those living and dead. These themes are woven together into what was a wonderful read. I do think this book could be read independently of the other/earlier books, but it did help to have read the Redbreast and even Nemisis (though that one was hard to listen to).
