I’ve always loved Jo Nesbo’s Harry Hole series so I thought I might as well try his stand alone Blood on Snow too and it was great. Olav is a “fixer” (murderer for hire) for one of the two top criminal bosses in town. He has never had a problem doing any job-the first person he ever killed was his father (deservedly) when he was a teenager and that’s when he realized his dream of going to college was not for him and that he was better suited for this kind of work. But now Olav’s boss has found out that his most recent wife is having an affair and so wants Olav to kill her. Olav starts spying on her, discovers she’s quite a looker, and actually witnesses her with her lover. Her lover seems to be very cruel to her so Olav decides that he needs to die instead of the wife. After he does the deed and calls his boss to tell him the problem has been solved but not in the way that he asked, he finds out that he has just killed the boss’s only son who was the one having an affair with his own stepmother. From the boss’ perspective, now Olav is the one who needs to die! Olav picks up the boss’s wife and they both go into hiding together. Can they stay ahead of the criminals now tasked with killing them? Can Olav get to the boss and kill him first? Read and find out!
