    "Please keep them coming Mr. Nesbo!"

    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.

    "Outstanding"

    This was the best yet in the Harry Hole series. It kept me guessing to the very end and I couldn't stop listening.....and can't wait for the next one.

    Story
    "The characters are as much fun as the mystery"
    Would you listen to Police again? Why?

    Probably not. I almost never listen to books twice because I already know how they end.


    What other book might you compare Police to and why?

    Any other Harry Hole book.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    No one in particular.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Not really.


    Any additional comments?

    If you're a fan of Kurt Wallander or Jo Nesbo, you'll enjoy this mystery.

    Story
    "Fabulous, great, best Harry Hole in the series!"
    If you could sum up Police in three words, what would they be?

    Complex, Gripping, Surprising.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Police?

    When the villain(s) murder one particularly memorable officer.


    Which character – as performed by John Lee – was your favorite?

    Harry


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    "Someone is brutally killing police officers previously linked to unsolved and unrelated murders - but, why?"


    Any additional comments?

    I thought I had beat Harry in figuring out who was the murderer, but not why. Turns out I was right ... but there's more to the story. Kudos to Jo Nesbo for such a thriller and such a puzzler, ... even up to the second-last chapter I was still questioning whether I had it right. And, it was only in the last chapter that Nesbo makes all the pieces fall into place.

    What a great story!

    Story
    "Not my favorite Nesbo"
    Where does Police rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Nesbo is such a superb writing that even his worse is better than most people's best. That said, this novel was not my favorite. I think Nesbo should take a break from the Harry Hole series and write some more stand alone books. This novel was a bit chaotic and a bit too much. There were too many threads going at once, and there was an evil character, who was too evil and too omnipotent.

    Some of the characters acted incredibly stupidly.

    As a mother and a women some of the scenes were very painful.

    The rape scenario was a bit much...

    I love the Hole series, but this didn't hold together. I think that Hole himself is such a big character, that if he isn't anchoring the novel, there isn't enough to hold it together.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    evil and chaos

    Nothing like a great audio book. Nothing worse than a bad book - audio or otherwise.

    "Jo Nesbo hits another home run with Harry Hole"

    Loved it. Nesbo is incredible. Gotta love Harry Hole. Great plot, characters, and no one can twist and turn like Nesbo can. Tremendous performance too. Release the next one soon!

    "Harry at his best"

    Supposedly the conclusion of the 10 book, Harry Hole series, but the author left a few events hanging, so I hope he continues with this exciting series.

    "Nesbo really is the best!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Police to be better than the print version?

    It's going to be hard to listen to anyone after this masterpiece....


    What did you like best about this story?

    Non stop thrills.


    Have you listened to any of John Lee’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    He is amazing!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    No one writes a chilling character like Nesbo.

    "Best Harry Hole novel yet!"

    Outstanding. Puts Jo Nesbo at the top of crime genre.
    John Lee is the best narrator in the business.
