Publisher's Summary

From the internationally acclaimed author of the Harry Hole novels - a fast, tight, darkly lyrical stand-alone novel that has at its center the perfectly sympathetic antihero: an Oslo contract killer who draws us into an unexpected meditation on death and love.
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. And while his latest job puts him at the pinnacle of his trade, it may be mutating into his greatest mistake...

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 most Nesbo novels (not surprisingly, it is quite short). And the narrator!!!! Never mind the monotone read (it sometimes works with Nesbo's cadence and darkness)... I could not understand why the producers of this audio book chose a female reader for a book that's told in the first person of a male character. Dumb choice.

What a drone.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I would recommend it to be read not to be listened.

How could the performance have been better?

If it would have been read by anyone else but Patti Smith. What a drone. I spent so much time getting past her voice I don't know what the connecting parts to the end of the story were.

Did Blood on Snow: A novel inspire you to do anything?

Consider buying it in print. The narration is a distraction from the story. I kept with the book because I felt the monotone narration might have something to do with the character.
