We all want to spread our wings at times and perform something different than where our talents normally take us. This is what Jo Nesbo and the narrator tried to do, and both failed miserably. The female narrator, Kim Gordon, spoke in the same irritatingly slow cadence with a monotone voice no matter what action was taking place -- and I use the word "action" here very loosely since no real energy or vitality occurs in the story -- and it was often quite difficult to discern which character was speaking. Nesbo, one of my favorite authors, essentially tried to convey a love story set in a cult-like atmosphere in his native land, which was neither interesting nor held the listener's attention. Quite a disappointment on every level.

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.
