Publisher's Summary

Jon is on the run. He has betrayed Oslo's biggest crime lord: The Fisherman.
Fleeing to an isolated corner of Norway, to a mountain town so far north that the sun never sets, Jon hopes to find sanctuary amongst a local religious sect.
Hiding out in a shepherd's cabin in the wilderness, all that stands between him and his fate are Lea, a bereaved mother; and her young son, Knut.
But while Lea provides him with a rifle and Knut brings essential supplies, the midnight sun is slowly driving Jon to insanity.
And then he discovers that The Fisherman's men are getting closer....

Can I have my money back?

I am Jo's biggest fan but this couldn't have been written by Jo Nesbo, this doesn't contain any of Jo's normal blend of dark and witty, sometimes brutal story telling. The use of Kim Gordon's monotone narration left me numb and didn't help me connect or engage with this book. Two words sum this book up - Dull & Baron.

SO DISAPPOINTING

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

A different narrator, It did not bode well when Kim Gordon couldn't even pronounce Jo Nesbo's name correctly. She went on to sound tired, and disinterested. Seriously one of the worst performances I have heard on Audible. I realise this was not a Harry Hole book, so it is reasonable to have a new voice, but I almost asked for my money back.


What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

Predictable. I have heard/read all Jo Nesbo's work and am a huge fan.
This is not up to his usual standard.


Would you be willing to try another one of Kim Gordon’s performances?

No I would not. I do not find her voice appealing.


If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Midnight Sun?

You book was so short you couldn't have cut a minute.


Any additional comments?

I feel it is a cheek to ask for a whole credit for such a short book.
