V 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 sto. This relatively slim novel is a stand alone from Jo Nesbo the creator of the great series featuring Norwegian homicide detective Harry Hole The protagonist is a contract killer named Olav who works for a crime boss in Oslo Olav is one of the best fixers in the business and approaches his work with a cold blooded efficiency until he is given the job of killing a woman who has taken a lover thus infuriating her husbandIn preparation for the hit Olav watches the woman for several days from an apartment across the street from hers and finds himself feeling sympathy and some affection for his target This doubtless violates virtually all of the guidelines in the Hitman's Handbook but of course it's great for the reader because of the conflict it creates in OlavThe story is narrated by Olav and the reader can't help but feel a tinge of sympathy for the guy in spite of his profession The choices that he makes will have significant conseuences for himself as well as for his targets and that's really all one can say about the plot without giving away significant developmentsOne can say that this book is up to the high standards that Nesbo has set in the Harry Hole series As always the characters are well drawn and the setting here Olso in the dead of winter is rendered very well The moral issues are also very interesting and this is a book that should appeal to any serious fan of crime fictionParenthetically I had the opportunity to hear Nesbo at a book event this week while he's touring for the new Harry Hole novel The Thirst He's a very interesting guy and it was a lot of fun listening to him talk about the origin of the series and about his own life as a writer If he makes it to your town he's definitely worth seeing

Blod på snøRyteller’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. My first experience with Jo Nesbo came about two years ago when I received his first Harry Hole novel The Bat as a gift Honestly I didn’t see what all the fuss was about I found that the story was all over the map like a dysfunctional GPS However when I heard he had recently released a stand alone thriller I thought I would give him another shot I’m glad I didBlood on Snow tells the story of Olav a “fixer” for a heroin dealer in Olso When a job goes awry Olav becomes his boss’ target Reaching out to his boss’ competitor Olav sets out to “fix” his former employer before fleeing Norway foreverWhile I usually love stories that meander sometimes a straightforward story with a simple plot can get the job done just as well as long as the writing does its job in sustaining my interest which Nesbo does in spades here when it comes to the novel’s protagonist and narrator OlavNesbo’s Olav is a simple man who longs for companionship but due to the nature of his work is unable to form a substantial relationship with anyone Throughout the course of the story you learn of his troubled childhood his battle with dyslexia accompanied by a limited education; effectively endearing him to the reader He’s a very sympathetic killer – a man whom the system has seemingly failed Don’t get me wrong I’m not saying he spends the whole two hundred pages whining and playing the poor me card but you definitely feel like he deserves betterBlood on Snow has inadvertently motivated me to revisit Nesbo’s signature Harry Hole series I’ve got to assume the series gets better as evidenced by how much I enjoyed this uick read The novel is no longer a stand alone as a seuel entitled “The Midnight Sun” is currently being writtenAlso posted Every Read Thing
