Plot Synopsis:

Brief Review:

Jo Nesbø (pronounced: you-ness-pa) is a master of constructing flowing narratives and creating characters. However, this story is fairly simple and, unfortunately, remains so throughout the novel. But the lack of complexity is effaced by the abundance of tension. Reading Blood on Snow is a good way to spend a few hours. But if you want more, if you want a mind-blowing introduction to Jo Nesbø, I would suggest The Redbreast.
