Yes. He should have written a Harry Hole book!
Harry Hole was missing in action most of the time.
No. Not this book.
I was surprised at this book. I think he just wrote it as a filler for the money. It's like he didn't take the time. If he's going to put the Harry Hole brand on it, then let him write a Harry Hole novel.
Please, please find someone else to perform these wonderful stories! I have not completed this audible, the performance is so jarring....
If someone else narrated it.
I like all of the characters. They all have such depth.
He read the book as if it were some kind of children's story. His voice was way too animated. Harry Hole is a dark character and the reading should reflect that. I suggest Mr. Lee listen to Robin's reading of the Hole stories to see how "less" can be so much "more." I found myself losing the storyline because his reading was so singsongy.
Yes, because I wanted to know what happened.
This is the first Harry Hole audiobook that has made me wish I'd read a hard copy of the book rather than listen to the audiobook. Perhaps I'm just too accustomed to Robin Sachs' characterizations. Robin Sachs is greatly missed. May he RIP.
I love jo nesbo but I can't bear to listen to this narrator
its written by jo nesbo and I like the harry hole series
I have enjoyed all the Harry Hole books except this one
No central characters (Harry doesn't make an appearance until after the 2nd half of the book). Plot jumpy and muddled. Narrator flat.
Tell us about yourself!
There are several places in the book that the listener/reader isn't sure who Jo Nesbo is talking about. These mysteries are resolved, but it is difficult to write a review and not give any spoilers.
Of course Harry has survived. The previous book left us wondering if it was the end of the series as Harry was so badly injured.
His survival and new lifestyle make the personal part of the book. There is also, of course, a string of depraved murders with much gore and several possible perpetrators. Previously introduced "bad cops" and a young woman intent on creating a scandal are woven throughout. We are once again left with a cliffhanger ending.
John Lee, as always, gives a stellar narration.
I'd do the impossible and bring back Robin Sachs!
Stop killing off characters around Harry. It serves no purpose, makes the book much less interesting. Harry Hole is a detective not an avenger.
Not sure but will skip next HH if John Lee is narrator. Not sure if it is his narration or the book or both but many times I caught myself thinking "This is to hokie!
No...But, this may sound stupid...should I listen again to see if it was as bad as I thought.
I've read most of the Harry Hole books (and loved them) but this one ranks towards the bottom of the list in terms of the story line. Not enough Harry in the book for me.
But the worst part was John Lee's performance. His interpretation of the female characters is so artificial and sing-songy. I just can't listen to another Jo Nesbo book narrated by him. What a tragedy to have lost Robin Sachs.
I loved this book. Police procedurals can all start sounding like one another, but Nesbo brings such a fresh approach with Harry Hole--and his writing skills are so unique--can't wait for the next one.
Of course I miss Robin Sachs wonderful voice, but John Lee does a pretty good job. I can't really think of another narrator who could take over for Robin and still give us the same rough, tough guy voice.
If you have not listened to the series on Harry Hole before, I recommend starting with the first book and continuing in order. When I listened to my first one, it was already far into the story, so I have had to back track somewhat. You will benefit from starting at the beginning, but just remember, they get better - much better - as they progress.
