Just started Blood on Snow by Jo Nesbo for something short to read. This is the second book I've tried to read by him so hopefully I enjoy it.

Very short but action packed. For me it was over before it really started though, yet I still enjoyed it.

This was almost So-So but just short because of the ending. While I like mystery and the concept of the "hitman with a heart" plot of this gritty, dark, pulp fiction #nordicnoir I was not a fan of any of the characters. The main protagonist had a lot of issues and was not believable as a good person. A couple of the twists surprised me but the writing felt a little underfilled and the ending left me unsatisfied. #pop18 #popsugarreadingchallenge

LoverofLit @sammisho I'm thinking not ? While I like the "hitman with a heart" concept, he is a terrible person. I'm not a fan of any of the characters really which is hard going! 13mo

If this was any longer, it would have been a bail, but it was short enough I pushed through. This genre is just not for me.

WhatThePuck @sammisho 😂😂😂😂 I read it on Overdrive at work. My coworkers would ask why I looked like I was day dreaming. Bc I was. I was day dreaming of a much more exciting book than the one I was currently reading. Lol. But, I very rarely give up on a book. 13mo
Mdargusch I‘m really struggling to find a #nordicnoir for this challenge. All Nesbo‘s books are soooo long. 13mo
sammisho @Mdargusch I had trouble too! This one is a novella and was only 5 hours long on audio. 13mo

Dunno what made me mistake Nesbø to be a Swedish writer... Anyways glad to have completed
#LitWorld2018GB - Norway with my first Nesbø thriller.
Fast-paced and eloquently written.
The expected violence and (somewhat) grisly details have kept me away from the popular Harry Hole series... Someday ;p

My first Jo Nesbo and I am honestly a little underwhelmed. Patti Smith‘s voice was perfect but the story itself wasn‘t that special for me... Is there another title I should try to get the full Jo Nesbo effect? #audiobook #newtomeauthor

emilyhaldi I know the right person for you to ask.... @Reggie !!!! 1y
Reggie Hey, thanks @emilyhaldi. This is the 7th book in the series. The first book is entertaining bad like Showgirls was supposed to be this deep movie but the acting is so bad you can‘t help but laugh and be entertained. Anyways, skip to the 3rd book, The Redbreast. It‘s where Nesbo really hits his stride. The 1st 2 books take place out of Norway so it‘s a bit disorienting and your not missing much in way of backstory. Funny story I only read this 1y
Reggie Series so I could watch the movie..... and then didn‘t watch the movie. Lolol also, you‘ll find Jo can be a bit of a sexist. 1y
BooksAtNight @Reggie Wow, thank you so much for sharing all that with me! Definitely good to know going into his books. I‘ll give him another chance... in a few month 😂 1y

This was my first Jo Nesbo book. A story of a hit man in Oslo who has a soft side. Not that it prevented some violent incidents which were quite disturbing. Yet, here I was hoping for Olav to win and survive. Oh, and Patti Smith did a fantastic job as the narrator! #nuyear #iassasin #blameitonlitsy

TrishB I‘ve only read one Nesbo- decided wasn‘t really for me! 2y

DivineDiana @Cathythoughts I just read a NYT book review that said this book could be considered a “palate cleanser” from his other books! 2y
Cinfhen Very graphic stuff! Not for me, either 😬 2y
Elle_Skeldon Sadly the graphic stuff doesn't steer me away...but you sold me when you said Patti Smith narrated! 2y
DivineDiana @Elle_Skeldon I was very impressed! She is portraying a male character. So believable! 2y

First car “read” of the new year. The real surprise for me was that it is narrated by punk rock queen, Patti Smith!

tomes4gnomes That IS surprising! 😮 Might have to check it out. I‘ve read all of Nesbo‘s Harry Hole books but none of the stand-alone novels. 2y
BookHermit Patti Smith is a great narrator. What a voice! 2y
DivineDiana @BookHermit It is interesting because she is the voice of a man! 2y

I listened to this one on audiobook and I really liked the narrators gruff voice. For some reason I thought this was going to be a lot more horrorish. In reality it's more of a crime drama. I hope future Nesbo reads are better this left me wondering what all the hype was about.

This was marked down to three dollars. It must've been overstock because it looks and feels like it's never been read. I've started reading Nesbo's The Bat; my second Harry Hole book. I'm also watching his TV series Occupied. It's really good.

Not impressed. I recall liking some of his other novels so much more.

melrailey I agree. I listened to this two weeks ago and it didn't capture anything like the Harry Hole novels did. 3y
laurenm @melrailey Exactly. 3y
minkyb I agree it is not Harry Hole but there was something beautiful about the setting. And I admit to liking Ulf. 3y
laurenm @minkyb I know what you mean. He is likeable, for an assassin. 😉 3y

A definite departure from Nesbø's Harry Hole series, but I loved it. This book introduces readers to a surprisingly sensitive man in an unsavory profession. A tragic, contemplative story with the moody atmosphere I always crave from Nesbø's books.
