Sachs is the greatest narrator and Nesbo an amazing, layered, and complicated writer. Harry Hole is every woman's bad boy with a heart of gold fantasy.

If you liked The Snowman, you'll like The Leopard. I really couldn't stop listening to it! The violence was a bit over the top, if you ask me. I will admit to skipping a few little mini parts when the very worst of the violence was happening; it was that graphic. But the action and the plot were good. It was complex, but not to the point of being hard to follow.
I loved the way Nesbo leaves so many clues, that you think you have the answer, but then, maybe.... Oh yes! I read a lot of mysteries, and usually, I figure out the killer before the book gives the answer. But this one had me going...:)
Robin Sachs rocks!!!! His reading is almost spooky, almost haunting. He makes it interesting and sometimes has fun renditions of the characters. Very entertaining!
Yes, but too long to do it.
Jo Nesbo leaves no details unturned. Sometimes a bit confusing to follow but always manages to tie it together well.
I don't listen to books more than once but do recommend this book to anyone who liked girl with the dragon tattoo.
Does a great job of doing different intonations for different characters.
Plan to listen to or read other Jo Nesbo books
The book begins with such gratuitous violence and upsetting torture I did not get any further. A shame this is needed to sell what otherwise might have been a good read. I wouldnot listen to anything written by this author again.
I just kept wishing the book would never end. Which admittedly is part of the fun of the plot.
I was an avid reader of books before my work took most of my time so now I listen to Audible books when I'm exercising or walking my dog. I like mystery and thriller novels, particularly good serial killer novels. I'm a writer and a psychotherapist.
Talk about the killer and not the people who are looking for the killer.
I'd cut out two thirds of the talk about the characters, who they are, what they think. The author teases the listener at the beginning with some pretty creepy serial killer glimpses and then jogs off into the the cast of who is either looking or going to look for the killer. I'm so tired of hearing about those people, what they think, feel, want, etc. that I'm just going to throw in the towel and stop listening. The storyline will probably be contained in a sequel.
This is a very well written and suspenseful book. I was sorry when it ended. I am looking forward to listening to more books by this author and esp. this Harry Hole series. I definitely recommend it.
I really love the characters and the characters. It is so relaxing to be able to listen to such an intelligent writer!
Yes, because there are many twists and turns
No, but I thoroughly enjoyed it.
