I first tripped across The Snowman and really loved the story, so natural progression was to read this one. I think there were some parts that dragged on a bit more than The Snowman, but the book kept my interest to the very end. Very much worth the read for me.
I have not read the print version
the small moments, pauses and reflections bring right to the time and place in these stories. These books make me want to write
Its pretty disturbing overall. I do think that Nebso's description of Harry's addiction is well done and in this case it make Harry Real!
Better that Stieg Larson. Deserves more recognition.
Probably not. But I'm not usually a guy who listens to books more than once.
Please! OK.. spoiler alert. (pause) ... The inevitable meeting between Harry and Voller in the hallway.. and then the lift.. was classic.
Everything! Sachs is one of my favorites. I'm a reader snob, and I mourn the fact that he isn't reading ALL the Hole books.
Made me cringe in a few spots. But all the Nesbo books do.
Overall, I liked this one the best so far.. starting from the beginning of the series. Partially because Sachs is the reader, but also because it draws some loose ends together and sets the stage for the next phase of Harry's existence. I didn't say "life," because he still seems to be tackling it one day at a time!
Why don't the authors and the producers of these audio production tell the narrators how to pronounce their characters names!?!?!?! Of why don't the narrators do their homework?!?!?! Can't stand to listen when the narrator pronounces the main characters name wrong every single time. Harry Hole (who-la) is a cop so most people call him by his last name
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".
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.
