Blood on Snow by Jo Nesbo

UnknownOlav lives the lonely life of a fixer.

When you ‘fix’ people for a living – terminally – it’s hard to get close to anyone.

Now he’s finally met the woman of his dreams.

But there are two problems.

She’s his boss’s wife.

And Olav’s just been hired to kill her.

 

With a central character in Olav, who seems destined to be on a continued path of frying pan to fire throughout the relatively short running time, this reminded me of Nesbo’s earlier novel Headhunters (and the movie spawned from it).

If noir is where things start off bad and then get worse, then this is noir. Short, snappy and full of great set pieces with balletic gunplay worthy of a John Woo movie, Blood on Snow could be the perfect reading ‘fix’ for you.
