BLOOD ON SNOW

Author:  Jo Nesbo
Genre:  Thriller, Blood on Snow Series #1
Published:  2015
Personal Rating:  3.25/5 (just okay +)
Format/Narrator:  Audiobook/Patti Smith
Yearly Count:  61



A fixer with heart (anti-hero) has a job to do.

I'm perplexed by the narrator.  It didn't sound like a female and if it were, I don't understand why a female was used instead of a male.  ???  And, she (?) totally took me by surprise.  Her tone was very flat and mundane.  However!  It worked and she grew on me.

As for the story itself, it was short and pretty interesting, but nothing great.  I don't understand how the series continues, so I will be checking that out.

    1. Les ~ It took me a while to get into it, so I understand your giving up. It was short, so I was able to continue. "Just okay" results is a bit of a bummer, but better than "not enjoyable". I will look into the next in the series even if it's just to see how it continues.

  2. I still need to read Nesbo. Is this your first?

    1. Stacybuckeye ~ No, this may be my third. While I have enjoyed his writing, I haven't been really impressed yet. One was the first in his main series and most people say that it's a few into the series when they get really good. I plan to continue, I'm just not in a hurry.
