    ""Police" is 5 stars and then some!"
    Would you listen to Police again? Why?

    All of the Harry Hole books are 5 star -- but this one tops them all. I highly recommend this entire series -- if you start in the middle of the series, say # 5, you will go back to #1 because you don't want to miss out on each of these terrific stories.

    "Not my favorite in the series. I miss Robin Sachs."

    I love the Harry Hole series and have listened to them all. This was certainly not them best of them and I'm disappointed that Nesbo would end the series with a less-than-stellar effort. Plus, Robin Sachs IS Harry Hole and his untimely death left shoes that even John Lee cannot fill. Still worth reading for any Hole fan though.

    "Returned from the Dead"

    Wow, I was sure Harry was dead but to my total joy, he is not. He only get better and wiser as he ages. Some cops have a "something else" in them that makes them better at solving the unsolvable and that is Harry. I hope to hear more of his cases.

    "Harry Hole does not disappoint!"

    This was really enjoyable crime fiction! I could hardly stop reading it, which makes it rank high in my book. I was glad to see some of the same characters and references to episodes from the last book, The Phantom. I do think this would make it harder for a newcomer to the Harry Hole series to understand or get as involved in the book as it was for a veteran of Jo Nesbo, but for me, it made it like a homecoming!

    One thing that I didn’t like about the book is the way Jo Nesbo was constantly trying to build suspense by, basically, tricking the reader into thinking one thing was happening, only to reveal a little later on that it was really something else. The biggest examples of this technique had to do with Harry Hole, the main character, and whether he was alive or not. There were many smaller examples, however, that kept cropping up. These DID serve to keep me on the edge of my seat, but after a while it also seemed overdone or contrived. One example (spoiler alert) was when the reader is led to believe that the young 12-year-old girl, Aurora, is the victim of the horrible serial killer. Nesbo does this by juxtaposing the section of the book with scenes of the young victim alongside the next section where Aurora is discovered missing. Of course, the reader begins to assume that Aurora is the victim.

    One other problem I had was that the first suspect, Valentin, is sort of dropped half way through, and then there is a tiny bit of evidence at the end that he might have shown up again. However, this whole tangent was too unresolved, in my opinion. It seems obvious there will be another book (yea!), but still, Nesbo needs to finish this one off in a bit more of a polished fashion.

    "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.

    "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

    "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
