I am a newly avid fan of Jo Nesbo. Having read all of his books that are currently available in English, I've now begun listening to them via audio books. "Nemesis" is an excellent story, but the narrator choice was terribly misguided. This is particularly amplified if you have perviously listened to a Nesbo book narrated by Robin Sachs. Sachs is a perfect fit for the main character Harry Hole, a 40 year old crusty, alcoholic police detective. Thor Knai sounds like a college kid. Knai might be good for some other genre, but has none of the depth of character portraying Hole or the wide range in depicting the other characters,
Seeing as there are two versions of "The Devil's Star" (one narrated by Sach and another by Sean Barrett), I truly hope "Nemesis" will be re-recorded using Sachs.

Couldn't listen to the narrator after five minutes. And I've just listened to three other Nesbo books in the Harry Hole series in the last two weeks. It's the narrator...who is markedly less effective in reading this Norwegian novel translation than Robin Sachs. Perhaps he can read a western...dunno...but this book is way out of his skill set. So disappointing that Nesbo and Audible ought to bite the bullet and pay Robin Sachs to redo this version...I bought the book...I'm reading it on my Iphone Kindle app...
