    "Another Awesome Harry Hole novel"
    Where does Police rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    "Police" is among my favorite audiobooks.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The author, Jo Nesbo, wrote a thriller with new and unpredictable story lines.


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

    The narrator obviously studied the meaning of each thing each character says. He is such a good actor and vocal talent. I can have trouble remembering characters when they have foreign-sounding names. John Lee's intonations make it easy for me, and most enjoyable.


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

    I feel moved by the compassion I sense toward characters that to the outside world might seem insignificant. For example, I experience a sense of loss when a certain person dies, even though his own family members had said he could "rot."


    Any additional comments?

    I am glad for my membership to audible.com because listening to the books by Jo Nesbo is one of the most reliably enjoyable experiences I have. Thank you!

    "Getting More Grisly?"

    Mr. Nesbo is killing off police officers in a grisly fashion. But it's countered by Harry's relationship upswing. I'm not sure I'm ready for a recovered, happy Harry Hole.

    Story
    "Nesbo is king"

    The best Scandinavian crime author out there, and one best regardless of language. Read the series in order. Police had more twists and turns and emotional ups and downs than a roller coaster. Hole is one of the great crime characters of all time. I can't wait for Nesbo's next book.

    "Excellent book! Excellent read!!!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Police to be better than the print version?

    Yes


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Police?

    The ending when you didn't know if Harry was still alive - and the scene was at a church. You didn't know whether this was a funeral (and who's funeral was it anyway) or some other event. The listener was definitely expecting a funeral.


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

    Truls Bernsen (? spelling). So creepy.


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

    'Love' - like you've never experienced it before.


    Any additional comments?

    Nesbo's books are soooooooo much better with John Lee reading. He's simply the best.

    "Bring back Robin Sachs!"
    What did you like about this audiobook?

    I loved this book but Robin Sachs IS the voice of Harry. John Lee is no doubt an excellent narrator but just doesn't have the Harry Hole savvy.
    Jo Nesbo is the best at twists and turns and leads us down a very slippery slope. It is impossible to elaborate on the plot without spoiling for prospective readers. I really had a hard time stopping this book and could have listened straight through. Cannot wait for next installment.


    Do you have any additional comments?

    bring back Robin Sachs

    Story
    "Nesbo does it again!"
    What made the experience of listening to Police the most enjoyable?

    The narration, Stan Lee is one of my favorites. The story was a nail biter as well kept you on your toes at all times


    What did you like best about this story?

    The deep story line. If you're a Nesbo fan and have listened to all the books or even some of them you will have a interest in certain characters and what happens to them. This book takes you on a journey with those characters in a very personal way.


    What about John Lee’s performance did you like?

    His narration is superb! Transforms each character so you don't even think about whose narrating ..The characters come alive on their own.


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

    No I listen while I work ..A few hours at a time. It makes me want to keep working!


    Any additional comments?

    Cant wait for the next Nesbo! Im hooked

    "Hmmmm"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I'd do the impossible and bring back Robin Sachs!


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Stop killing off characters around Harry. It serves no purpose, makes the book much less interesting. Harry Hole is a detective not an avenger.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of John Lee?

    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!


    Was Police worth the listening time?

    No...But, this may sound stupid...should I listen again to see if it was as bad as I thought.

    "Great , but a bit much on the bait and switch"

    This addition to the series advances the story of Harry Hole significantly. It is cleverly plotted and magnificently narrated. However Mr. Nesbo has fallen in love with bait and switch tactics in his writing. By the end of the book most readers will probably no longer take the bait. However it is still a great book!

    "Too rough for me"

    I've listened to the other Harry Hole books and enjoyed them. But I could not take this one - too graphic and horrible. The others were certainly violent, but in this one he seemed to be trying to one-up the others - gratuitous violence and degradation. I was hoping to be hooked like I was by the others, but finally gave up. Maybe I should give Nesbo's children's books a try - I'm obviously not adult enough for this one.

    "Just Couldn't Follow This One"

    I've read other things by this author and was so looking forward to this one. I couldn't seem to get into it. About mid-way through the second download, I called it quits - which I rarely do. I had a difficult time following the names, the background and the story in general. Too bad....I had wanted to like it.
