Harry.

There is something different about this one, smoother, more matured or something. As always, brilliant.

Beyond brilliant

The best Harry Hole yet ... but new comers are recommended to start at Book 1 and delight in the whole series to relish in the full flavours of this brilliant, original masterpiece!
Sean Barrett remains the most masterful narrator and a mere five stars does not do him justice !

Another great book!

By book 12 of a series, you might expect the characters or storylines to be getting a bit stale; not so with 'Knife'. Jo Nesbo continues to thrill and surprise and to make us want more.

A fabulous reading, as ever, from the magnificent Sean Barrett for which I am eternally grateful. As a mum of two small children, running my own business, studying for a degree and doing up our home, I rarely get a cup of tea whilst it's hot, never mind find the time to read! Thanks to Audible, I can still enjoy my favourite authors and Mr Barrett is by far my favourite reader.

I am genuinely invested in the characters and look forward to hearing the next installment.

Just brilliant again.

One of my favourites books along with The Snowman (the book NOT the shocking movie). I thought I had it, I thought I had it all worked out and then the twist came from left field and I relished how perfect it was - I wasn’t close, not even in the same field. I love, love the exquisitely detailed narrative that is pure Nesbo. And only Sean Barrett - there can never be another narrator.

Best ever

Harry is back but god he needs a break! Having read all of Jo Nesbo’s Harry Hole books I was excited to catch up with Harry and this is the best book yet.
I couldn’t stop listening to Sean Barrett’s masterful narration, he really brings Harry to life like no other could. The plot is so skill fully laid and had me feeling guilty for pinning the blame on certain characters only to find they were innocent and I had to find a new character to hang the guilt on.
Although I raced to the end of the book to find out the truth I was devastated it ended and I knew I would have to wait for the next book..... come Jo, write faster!!!!
I can’t recommend this book enough but only if you have read all the previous Harry Hole books, you won’t be disappointed.

Unputdownable

Brilliant. There is a little bit of Harry in everyone who grows to love Nesbo's books.
This one is a real cracker. I did the audible version for a change and feel the world is a safer and happier place knowing Harry is still out there somewhere.

Nesbo Did it again! Thank you!

This is time it is really personal ! And that is why the story flows differently. It takes quite a lot of pages to get the best out of Harry’s detective mind, but last 3 hours are breathtaking ! During my runs listening to this book I laughed, screamed and cried. U R welcomed to do the same...

Sorry Nesbo, but I didn’t like this book !

Sorry Nesbo, but I didn’t like this book! Too long, too slow, too many words without meaning! I was disappointed and tired!
