Blood on Snow (Blood on Snow #1) by Jo Nesbø

This was a totally different read for me, but I follow some other bloggers who love his work, so I decided to give Jo Nesbø a go. While this wasn’t a fantastic and thrilling read for me, it was still good.

I enjoyed the plot. It kept me intrigued and curious as to what would happen next. The characters were nothing to write home about – which for me is kind of a big deal. I LOVE in depth character development. If you’re like me, this will be a bit of a let down.

Overall, it was a good read. Not my favorite thing in the world, but still quite interesting! There is a second book that I plan to read at some point.

Rating: 3 stars

Amazon | Goodreads

From the internationally acclaimed author of the Harry Hole novels—a fast, tight, darkly lyrical stand-alone novel that has at its center the perfectly sympathetic antihero: an Oslo contract killer who draws us into an unexpected meditation on death and love.

This is the story of Olav: an extremely talented “fixer” for one of Oslo’s most powerful crime bosses. But Olav is also an unusually complicated fixer. He has a capacity for love that is as far-reaching as is his gift for murder. He is our straightforward, calm-in-the-face-of-crisis narrator with a storyteller’s hypnotic knack for fantasy. He has an “innate talent for subordination” but running through his veins is a “virus” born of the power over life and death. And while his latest job puts him at the pinnacle of his trade, it may be mutating into his greatest mistake. . . .
