    Story
    "Jo Nesbo -- what happened to you?"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    oh my gosh, you must be kidding me!! Is this cliche-ridden, flawed, superficial, predictable, dull novel by the same author who produced the eery, deeper, surprising novels of the Harry Hole series?
    This book would have been better if the characters had some depth, the story were enticing, and the cliches were dropped.
    The performance must have been a joke. Never have I heard a less appropriate reading of a book.


    What could Jo Nesbo have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Did Nesbo write this in 2 days while suffering from a hangover? I hope that in future writings Jo Nesbo will stop and think about what he's doing.


    What didn’t you like about Patti Smith’s performance?

    Shouldn't the narrator be a man? I mean, to go with the main character whose story is being narrated.
    Patti Smith has a flat voice, stumbled on words, had some crazy twang where she says "winda" instead of window.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Blood on Snow?

    Everything.
    Should never have been written.

    "Please bring back Sean Barrett"
    What disappointed you about Blood on Snow?

    I normally can't get enough of Jo Nesco's books, but the characters never really worked for me. The book felt very short. Also, the narrator was a very poor choice. The broad New York accent, but a story set in Oslo just felt so weird.


    What could Jo Nesbo have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    The characters just never really connected to me. The story just didn't seem to go anywhere.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Patti Smith’s performances?

    i doubt it. Her style of narration is slow, monotone and lacking any character. The broad New York accent just starts to grate after a while.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Blood on Snow?

    it needs scenes added!


    Any additional comments?

    Please get Sean Barrett back for these Jo Nesbo books.

    Not up to his usual standards... Disappointed! Almost glad it was just under 4hrs. Hoping the next Harry Hole will be back on form

    "Quite possibly the worst narration ever"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The narration


    Has Blood on Snow put you off other books in this genre?

    no


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    I wouldn't know, I fell asleep half way through


    If this book were a film would you go see it?

    As long as the narrator change


    Any additional comments?

    I'm sorry, but this really was a dreadful choice of narrator. Sean Barratt made Harry Hole into a believable thoroughly enthralling character. Patti Smith narrative was poorly paced and monotone. I had little interest in finishing what might have been quite a good listen.

    "Ideal for the insomnia"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The usual narrator


    Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Patti Smith?

    Sean Barrett


    Any additional comments?

    The voice of the narrator droned on in a monotone that could put me to sleep in about 10 minutes

    Story
    "A short, lean, mean pulp machine"

    A few hour of fun in a Tarantino style story, of criminals, their crimes, loves, and total indifference to life. the cleanest thing in the story is the snow and it gets covered in blood frequently. the main character is a likable “fixer” or hit man; Olav is aware of his limitations and lets us know how things work in his world, but his glasses are very tinted and not all is as he remembers.
    I enjoyed the reader of the the story, if a bit unusual.

    "Half decent story spoilt by bad narration"

    The reader for this book is quite a bad choice. Firstly, it could be a man's voice or a woman's. It's obviously meant to be a man's, so why not pick someone with a rich deep voice that sounds like a killer? Secondly, the reader affects an L.A. Noir drawl that's totally out of keeping with the Oslo setting. It's an ok story but I won't be trying another like it.

    "So so Bad!!!"
    What disappointed you about Blood on Snow?

    The narrator


    What could Jo Nesbo have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Don't know. It was totally the narrator


    Would you be willing to try another one of Patti Smith’s performances?

    Never. Will avoid like the plague. Sorry. I'm sure she's a lovely person and all that but this was not the book for her. Not sure narration is best suited to her voice. too monotone.


    Any additional comments?

    I love Jo Nesbo books. And have loved the audio books too. I honestly had to stop listening 15 minutes in, the narration was so boring. In fact, it was so bad I'm going to ask to be credited for it. First time ever.
