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
What a drone.
I would recommend it to be read not to be listened.
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.
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.
