Publisher's Summary

From the internationally best-selling author of the Harry Hole novels comes this short, lyrical tale of a man on the run from a crime lord's deadly retribution, lost far beyond the Arctic Circle, where the sun remains in the sky for months on end.
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. After acting foolishly (but out of mercy and desperation), Ulf has now become the man his boss needs fixed. Can this strange town - and especially a curious, lonely boy with his taciturn mother - offer Ulf a chance at redemption while he awaits the arrival of those who would hunt him down?

worst narrator in the history of audiobooks

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

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


What was most disappointing about Jo Nesbo’s story?

obviously one of Nesbo's losers, maybe an early story? marketed to us based on an assumption that fans of his better work will buy anything


Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Kim Gordon?

anyone at all


Any additional comments?

A perfectly awful reader, given a lame, amateurish story to read. You must think we aren't paying attention.

Boring and over-priced

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

I like Jo Nesbo and have listened to all his books but his one is 1) boring 2) too short for the money. Less than 6 hours but full priced - James Lee Burke and C.J. Box deliver better stories and longer enjoyment.


Has Midnight Sun turned you off from other books in this genre?

No, but will not pre-order in the future. Will wait for other review.


What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

Slow paced, not bad but slow
