Fiction, Mystery/Thriller

Blood on Snow by Jo Nesbo

I waited almost a whole two months to read this book. During that time, I heard lots of raving reviews about this novel and this author, making me even more anxious to read it. I was so eager to read it that I started reading it while I was working (I’m so lucky that no one caught me doing that)!

Olav is a fixer. He was terrible at robberies and drug cartel work but people soon found out that he had a penchant for killing people. But it is a lonely life and for a man as simple as Olav, it can make him quite sad. Until the day he meets the woman of his dreams. Who is actually his boss’s wife – and his next target to kill.

This book moved along very quickly but it took me by surprise because of the way it was written. The language was as simple as the main character and this simplicity was what really made this book irresistible for me. I loved the main character; I found it impossible not to love him. The story was so good that I was sad to finish it (it was rather a short read, to be honest). I would recommend this to anyone looking for something unique, refreshing, and short!
