The internationally acclaimed author of Blood on Snow and the Harry Hole novels now gives us the tightly wound tale of a man running from retribution, a renegade hitman who goes to ground far above the Arctic circle, where the never-setting sun might slowly drive a man insane. He calls himself Ulf—as good a name as any, he thinks—and the only thing he's looking for is a place where he won't be found by Oslo's most notorious drug lord: the Fisherman. He was once the Fisherman's fixer, but after betraying him, Ulf is now the one his former boss needs fixed—which may not be a problem for a man whose criminal reach is boundless. When Ulf gets off the bus in Kåsund, on Norway's far northeastern border, he sees a "flat, monotonous, bleak landscape . . . the perfect hiding place. Hopefully."

First off, I need to say I did not finish this text. I plan to, some day, but in print form.

For some reason, the publishers chose author Kim Gordon to do this audio narration. (N.B. Patti Smith was amazing in her delivery of Blood on Snow, but Gordon is no Patti Smith.)

In English, Nesbo Noir is always translated into the British idiom, but Gordon does not seem familiar with the lovely cadences used across the pond. It's like listening to a 4th grader read Dickens.

Even her handling of just plain-old English narrative structure is flawed and painful to listen to. Her parsing is not only annoying, it sometimes impedes understanding.

And call me old-fashioned, but I want my narrators to give "legged" two syllables in Nesbo's deliciously ominous descriptions of "bandylegged" men.
