    Story
    "Serialized Harry Hole…Dead…Undead…Dead…Undead???"

    Jo Nesbo can do gritty-city-OMG as well as any of the best contemporary writers publishing today. So, why in this novel do we have to experience the very predictable - "is he dead…not dead…dead…not dead" gimmicks of serialized comic strip writers. Of course he's not dead. If he were dead we would all pack it in and download Arnaldur Indridason instead of Jo Nesbo.

    Serial killers are Nesbo's forte, but I am going to have to say (if reluctantly) that this Harry Hole Novel will leave you feeling a victim of serial manipulation. Please note that I own every Nesbo audiobook available and I know I will buy more. However, in the case of this audiobook (Police)…I am a victim and not a fan.

    "Nesbo at his very best. Breathless thriller!"

    Please read some or all of the previous Harry Hole books as they provide important background that makes this one all the better. This one has the most twists, turns and hold-your-breath moments of any of Nesbo's others. Virtually un-pause-able.

    Narrator does a good job - gets better as he goes.

    "Boring"

    I'm already three hours into this book and Harry Hole has not yet appeared. Actually, I got so bored with this book that I went to other books.

    "John Lee is NOT Harry Hole"

    Please, please find someone else to perform these wonderful stories! I have not completed this audible, the performance is so jarring....

    "Poorly written and read"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I have enjoyed all the Harry Hole books except this one


    Has Police turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No central characters (Harry doesn't make an appearance until after the 2nd half of the book). Plot jumpy and muddled. Narrator flat.

    Story
    "New lifestyle for Harry!"

    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.

    "jo nesbo is a master"
    Where does Police rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is so good I longed to find out the end but when it came I wanted more of it. Nesbo is
    a fantastic writer. The Harry Hole series is a must listen to


    What did you like best about this story?

    the heros and that the end let you know its never over


    What does John Lee bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    nice different voices


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    no

    Story
    "RIP Robin Sachs"
    Would you listen to Police again? Why?

    If someone else narrated it.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I like all of the characters. They all have such depth.


    What didn’t you like about John Lee’s performance?

    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.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, because I wanted to know what happened.


    Any additional comments?

    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.
