    Olav lives the lonely life of a fixer. When you ‘fix’ people for a living - terminally - it’s hard to get close to anyone. Now he’s finally met the woman of his dreams. But there are two problems. She’s his boss’ wife. And Olav’s just been hired to kill her. From the best-selling author of BAFTA-nominated Headhunters comes Jo Nesbo’s Blood on Snow.

    Jo Nesbo -- what happened to you?

    oh my gosh, you must be kidding me!! Is this cliche-ridden, flawed, superficial, predictable, dull novel by the same author who produced the eery, dee..Show More »

    This is the story of Olav: an extremely talented "fixer" for one of Oslo's most powerful crime bosses. But Olav is also an unusually complicated fixer. He has a capacity for love that is as far-reaching as is his gift for murder. He is our straightforward, calm-in-the-face-of-crisis narrator with a storyteller's hypnotic knack for fantasy. He has an "innate talent for subordination" but running through his veins is a "virus" born of the power over life and death.

    A long short story

    I love Jo Nesbo. I didn't love Blood on Snow (although I have to admit I LOVED the ending). Overall, the story lacked the depth and hyper-reality of m..Show More »

    A wayward hitman, mourning a recent loss, arrives in a tiny town on Norway's far northeastern border. He calls himself Ulf and gives a halfhearted excuse for his presence, but the locals, who seem as if out of a folk story from a previous century, ask him few questions and supply him with food, shelter, and a gun. In his previous life, Ulf worked as a fixer for The Fisherman, one of the cruelest drug kings in Oslo, a man whose reach spans the globe.

    worst narrator in the history of audiobooks

    I don't know where to begin - the list is too long.

    Jon is on the run. He has betrayed Oslo’s biggest crime lord: The Fisherman. Fleeing to an isolated corner of Norway, to a mountain town so far north that the sun never sets, Jon hopes to find sanctuary amongst a local religious sect. Hiding out in a shepherd’s cabin in the wilderness, all that stands between him and his fate are Lea, a bereaved mother; and her young son, Knut. But while Lea provides him with a rifle and Knut brings essential supplies, the midnight sun is slowly driving Jon to insanity.

    Truly terrible narration

    I love Jo Nesbo's books.. or I have until now. but this book - I just couldn't get through it. I think it was largely the author - her flat, monotone..Show More »
