Midnight Sun: Blood on Snow 2 Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Jon is on the run. He has betrayed Oslo’s biggest crime lord: The Fisherman.

Hiding out in a shepherd’s cabin in the wilderness, all that stands between him and his fate are Lea, a bereaved mother; and her young son, Knut.

What ties these two together is The Fisherman, crime kingpin of Oslo. Jon worked for The Fisherman selling drugs and other 'special' jobs as needed. Except Jon couldn't do it - he couldn't kill. So now he's run to a remote village at the top of Norway where the sun never sets. And he took along drugs and money that weren't his to take - and The Fisherman wants it back....
A local woman, Lea, and her son Knut, give Jon shelter in an old hunting cabin. But after a few days of the sun never setting, the flat unending landscape and being alone in the small cabin, he craves people - and alcohol. So he heads to the village....
Nesbo's description of the village and the landscape creates an sense of otherworldly isolation that mirrors what Jon is feeling. The eclectic residents and their behavior keeps both Jon and the reader wondering what could happen next.
Even though Jon, aka Ulf, is a 'bad' guy, he's a bad guy with a good streak and a conscience. The reader can't help but hope that he escapes those after him and that maybe, just maybe, he's got another shot at a good life. Sami culture and the Laestadian religion are woven into the story - redemption is a major theme and plays a part in more than one character's life.
I love the noir, staccato pace of Nesbo's writing - think of a Tarantino movie put to print. For me, another great read from Nesbo. Read an excerpt of Midnight Sun.
(I have no idea if Nesbo will ever resurrect Harry Hole - but I do miss him.)

Sooooo boring. Soooo predictable.. Sooo not "Jo Nesbo".
Don't waste your money on it.
Although not with this book .
A slow story basically treading water from.page to page .
No particularly exciting , no twists or anything to keep me guessing what will happen next .
A book I read on holiday , not going to remember much from it.
