    Captured on closed-circuit television: A man walks into an Oslo bank, puts a gun to a cashier’s head, and tells her to count to 25. When he doesn’t get his money fast enough, he pulls the trigger. The young woman dies—and two million Norwegian kroner disappear without a trace.

    Janet says: "Great writer! WORST narrator in all of Audible!"
    "Read the (fantastic) book instead"

    Story

    I am a newly avid fan of Jo Nesbo. Having read all of his books that are currently available in English, I've now begun listening to them via audio books. "Nemesis" is an excellent story, but the narrator choice was terribly misguided. This is particularly amplified if you have perviously listened to a Nesbo book narrated by Robin Sachs. Sachs is a perfect fit for the main character Harry Hole, a 40 year old crusty, alcoholic police detective. Thor Knai sounds like a college kid. Knai might be good for some other genre, but has none of the depth of character portraying Hole or the wide range in depicting the other characters,

    Seeing as there are two versions of "The Devil's Star" (one narrated by Sach and another by Sean Barrett), I truly hope "Nemesis" will be re-recorded using Sachs.
