She’s his boss’ wife. And Olav’s just been hired to kill her. From the best-selling author of BAFTA-nominated Headhunters comes Jo Nesbo’s Blood on Snow.
Great book. Wrong narrator.
I have listened to all of Jo Nesbo's books and have loved them. I was very excited when this book was released until I started listening to it, I am only on chapter 17 but I am struggling with it because of the terrible choice of narrator. Firstly I think it should be a male voice and secondly I can't get past the American accent on a European based story. I will try and get past this but it has ruined it for me really.
Wrong choice of narrator
I admit it - I didn't trust the other reviewers or listen to a preview and I bought this audiobook. Big mistake.
I'm a big Joe Nesbø fan, but this narrator is the wrong choice for this book. Her style of narration, plus the choice of an American woman reading a book based on a European male, makes this audiobook unlistenable.
I just can't listen to this for more than 30 seconds, even when it is on in the background. Please, don't do what I did, trust the reviewers and listen to the preview before you purchase.
