I just loved listening to this book and boy is it a long book! However, the story is captivating and thrilling from the very beginning to the end and keeps you in suspense all the time. The narrator, Sean Barrett, is fantastic and a master at emulating the different characters' voices. The very frequent references to contemporary people and concepts are witty and often extremely humourous! The writer's research in terms of the locations depicted, in this book Hong Kong, Oslo and the Congo are meticulous and vividly described - you can just imagine being there! The book's main character Harry Hole is...well, there is only one Harry Hole! I read swedish author Stieg Larsson's Millenium Trilogy and absolutely loved it. I am very tempted to say that the norwegian Jo Nesbo is almost a notch better (sorry Stieg, R.I.P.)!
