From the internationally acclaimed author of the Harry Hole novels—a fast, tight, darkly lyrical stand-alone novel that has at its center the perfectly sympathetic antihero: an Oslo contract killer who draws us into an unexpected meditation on death and love.

This is the story of Olav: an extremely talented “fixer” for one of Oslo’s most powerful crime bosses. But Olav is

This is classic noir, folks. Complex, ruthless hitman with the capacity to love. Troubled background. Femme fatale, Rival crime bosses. Dark, shadowy streets. You can all but hear the mournful sax serenading the snowflakes. Nods to Andrew Vachss, Jim Thompson, and Dashiell Hammet. Really good stuff. I thought his little experiment with the first person narrative was his most lyrical novel(la?) yet. In such a few pages, Nesbo created one of the most complex characters in his oeurve. I can't say that I would have paid the full $23.95 for this book (I bought it $0.01 on Amazon), but I can say that all the negative feedback is a bit overdone. Glad I took the chance on it and didn't pay attention to all shrill criticism. Could it have been marketed differently? Sure. probably should have been a selection in a collection of Nesbo novellas. But was it a great story? Absolutely. (less)

This was my first Nesbø book, so I didn't know what to expect. It's a fast read, but it felt like a first draft of a novella, rather than a completed work.

Blood on Snow is the story of a "fixer" named Olav, which means he's a contract killer. Olav has a dry sense of humor and says killing is the only thing he's good at.

"To sum up, let's put it like this: I'm no good at driving slowly, I'm way too soft, I fall in love far too easily, I lose my head when I get angry, and I'm bad at math. I've re

A hit man with a heart.

A Norwegian hit man to be more exact. From the best-selling author of the fabulously well to do Harry Hole series, Jo “I can write like Mickey Spillane when I want to” Nesbo, his 2014 fast paced novella (translated into Murican by Neil Smith) is a fun departure from his Hole mystery writing.

Not a Scandinavian murder mystery, but most definitely still Nordic Noir. This is a dark and gritty journey into underworld Oslo. Set in the late 70s, Nesbo leads us into the shadowy wo

Blood on Snow is a novella by Norwegian crime author Jo Nesbo.

Olav is a hitman, that's all he can be. A life of crime and some pimping have left his options limited. Why a hitman? Well, he's no good at driving a getaway car, no good at maths, is dyslexic so reading and writing are major issues - but he is a practical man, knows the game well and he's a survivor.

His boss is the runner of half of the empire of heroin in Norway. The other half is run by the 'fisherman', as with most crime parties,

This relatively slim novel is a stand-alone from Jo Nesbo, the creator of the great series featuring Norwegian homicide detective Harry Hole. The protagonist is a contract killer named Olav who works for a crime boss in Oslo. Olav is one of the best "fixers" in the business and approaches his work with a cold-blooded efficiency until he is given the job of killing a woman who has taken a lover, thus infuriating her husband.

In preparation for the hit, Olav watches the woman for several days from

A surprisingly satisfying tale of a hitman with a human heart and the capacity to take risks out of love and an emerging sense of justice. This stand-alone novella from the author of the popular series about Norwegian detective Harry Hole gives you the interior view of the minimalist life of Olav, who has the job as “fixer” for a powerful gangster in Oslo. He acquired the position by default after inadequacies in other positions such as pimp or getaway driver. The few people he had to kill were ...more

My first experience with Jo Nesbo came about two years ago when I received his first Harry Hole novel, The Bat, as a gift. Honestly, I didn’t see what all the fuss was about. I found that the story was all over the map like a dysfunctional GPS. However, when I heard he had recently released a stand-alone thriller*, I thought I would give him another shot. I’m glad I did.

Blood on Snow tells the story of Olav, a “fixer” for a heroin dealer in Olso. When a job goes awry, Olav becomes his boss’ targ

The lead character Olav Johansen is a seasoned criminal with a sordid past and whose one success in life is as a 'fixer'. He is employed by the drug baron Daniel Hoffmann to kill his wife Corina Hoffman who he suspects of adultery. While casing the proposed crime Olav becomes infatuated by Corina and his plan changes when he witnesses the abusive lover and decides he is a more deserving victim.

I never went and looked through Jo Nesbo’s page of books he had written on Goodreads, and I only know him because of his Harry Hole novels, but he writes other books, too.

Some of those are a series of books for kids that revolve around farting.

And he also has this stand alone novel that was written under a pseudonym and is being released this spring.

I’ve only read one of Nesbo’s books before, so I’m not all that familiar with how his novels go. But the one that I read was a fairly dense and in

Never having been introduced to the legendary Harry Hole or having read Jo Nesbo before I had few preconceptions ahead of reading Blood on Snow and hence for me, meeting "fixer" Olav in this clever noir thriller was an unexpected delight. A contract killer with a soft-centre might sound mutually exclusive but that is until readers meet Olav who narrates this short offering set in the brutal chill of a pre-Christmas Olso in 1976. Protagonist and anti-hero, Olav, has worked for Daniel Hoffmann for ...more

The storytelling, characters, descriptions, dialogues and whole action somehow reminded me of Quentin Tarantino movies. Also, quite broken, disturbed, psychotic characters seems to be Nesbo forte. I liked Olav, the main character, the'fixer' who falls in love too easily, which also seems to be his biggest weakness.

I would not say the book is among my favorites but I definitely enjoyed all aspects of it. I can move on to part 2 now.

Olav guesses that his life is going to go all to hell when his crime-kingpin boss, Hoffmann, tells him his new commission is to fix Hoffmann's trophy second wife, Corina, who's been having an affair. As soon as Olav sees Corina, though, he's consumed by love/lust for her, and on impulse he fixes the boyfriend instead. What he doesn't realize at the time is th

This is a really short book and before you know it you are looking at the last page and are wondering where time went. But honestly the story does not really stretches too long and neither does it outstay it welcome.

The book is about a fixer/killer who is rather decent at his job but has too much of a good heart. It is this that makes him make a fatal mistake during one of his contacts that changes the game for him.

The leading character is a limited one and not really that interesting, the story

Well, I have to be honest here... This book isn't like the Harry Hole series and I thought that I wasn't going to like it... BUT... It was a very good book for different reasons! I liked the main hero because he is not usual at all. He is smart in his own way and I love the way he thinks of everything! I can't believe that I am saying this for an assassin but he's an amazing character. With many faults, a hard life and some questionable decisions. I gave it 4 stars because I wanted to be longer

Our "hero's" chosen path does not let me rest easy and have good hopes for him. The thing is, I think the word 'chosen' here is not correct. Nesbo shows us bit by bit how uncorrect it is. Ok the buck always stops with us and we pay the price for each choice we make but what I'm saying is that life loads the dice against us some times and what might logically seem to be the best choice is not the one we make because of a myriad of other thoughts, circumstances that bugs us and trip us.

Really a novella. Olav, the main character is a talented “fixer” for one of Oslo’s most powerful crime bosses. He has fallen into this job, but failing at most others for various reasons, such as dyslexia and a tender heart. His boss orders Olav to kill his wife, and things get very strange as Olav disobeys orders and finds himself caught in the cross-hairs of Oslo's underworld. I did not care for the ending. My advise is to stick with Nesbo's Harry Hole series.

“Dán několikrát zatočil vlasy, jedním krokem se odrazil, rozmáchl se paží podél těla jako hráč bowlingu a hlavu pustil. Plachtila vzhůru s vlasy rozevlátými, ale v příliš příkrém úhlu, takže zasáhla strop, odrazila se opět na schody a kutálela se zpátky k nám s křupáním, jako když lžičkou rozbíjíte skořápku vajíčka natvrdo.
„Musím jenom pořádně zamířit,“ zamumlal Dán, hlavu zas popadl, srovnal si nohy, pro lepší soustředění zavřel oči a přitom se několikrát zhluboka nadechl. Došlo mi, že psychicky je to teď se mnou na hraně, protože jsem se málem rozesmál. Pak Dán oči otevřel, udělal dva kroky vpřed a rozmáchl se. Uvolnil úchop. Čtyři a půl kila lidské lebky vykroužily pěkný oblouk k vrcholu schodiště, dopadly na podlahu a my jsme slyšeli, jak hlava poskakuje a kutálí se chodbou.”
