Quite complex in its plot, but worthwhile. Lovely narration, as ever, by Sean Barrett.
I managed to fall in to one of Nesbo's traps, and was convinced of the guilt of one character - I do like his way of writing, and his characters are fun.
Gripping page turner
Harry, always harry
Sean Barrett is the consummate narrator. He could make a telephone directory sound interesting
Yes and no, yes because it was riveting, no because I knew I'd miss Harry
When's the next one due
Harry is back warts and all.
Not so long next time please Mr Jo Nesbo.
one of the best.
Other Harry Hole books - for obvious reasons.
Superb - he is Harry - especially liked his growling.
Harry is back! Great story, lots of teasing twists and turns and, as always, superbly read by the one and only Sean Barrett.
"A bit too drawn out, but still a great listen."
I feel the overall story could have been more concise. This would have made it wonderfully thrilling and not just mediocre thrilling. However,Jo Nesbo has done it again and I still recommend this novel.
I had tears in my eyes in parts near the end,caused by knowing the history behind the characters.
Sean Barrett as wonderful as ever.
"Dark side of the thirst."
There are many twists and turns, as you would expect from a Jo Nesbo novel. they don't always work. In this Novel they do. There is an abundance of psychological investigation which keeps the reader stimulated, whether true or not is neither here nor there. As usual there the obligatory references to music and literature. Haruki Murakami gets a mention which is pleasing as he is also one author I most admire. Pink Floyd are given special treatment. For this alone the novel geserves five stars.
Everything. I listened in two sittings. It helps when a novel is basically based upon the entire work of British Rock band Pink Floyd.
He is one of the best readers there is available. He is Harry!
You are going to pay me for the tag line? Someone else can do their job.
Just listen. It will be the best Crime tnovel this year. Although the recent Philip kerr addition was very good.
