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.

- Mr

Half as bright as Blood on Snow


This is a book that wants to be too many things, a sequel, a social study, a love story, a redemption tale, a thriller, pulp fiction, and religious commentary, but fails all by not having enough room to maneuver such large topics in less than 224 pages, also most people will buy the book expecting a continuation of the first tale or at least a connection in style and content, but no, apart from one main character and the consequence of knowing him all else could have been a very independent story that probably would have worked better.

This is a melancholic, romantic mess of a story that never quite develops into one thing or another it just rushes full of potential and interesting people into sentimentality and half baked philosophies that are never resolved. It feels truncated, rushed for Christmas. or some other commercial reasoning. it feels full of potential and possibilities wasted for some reason only Jo Nesbo knows.

Why this series has been given female readers when the main characters are males and the story related is related in first person, is a mystery and very distracting.
Kim Gordon is a very good reader but she has a very feminine voice that is not well suited for a killer heterosexual male that is a drug addict, smoker and a heavy drinker, her larynx could not get that low or raspy.
