Book Review Of The Day – Blood On Snow

The Whaleoil Book Club is something that we are going to do on a semi regular basis. It is a compilation of recommended books from readers which have been asked for in the comments section of the General Debate and Back Chat posts. This holiday season we are going to review one book per day so that it gives people a chance to do their own research on the books and authors by using the links provided and not miss out by being bombarded by a whole lot at once. You will be able to navigate to the previous reviews as we progress.

The purpose is to share with others sources of information and/or entertainment to aid with relaxing as people take some time off work.  

Each book is set out in its own paragraph in the format of Title, author and a commenters own blurb (unless there was none given in which I have looked up an on line review).

Our first book review comes from regular eastern europe correspondent Lab Tested.


Blood On Snow.

By Jo Nesbo.

Lab Tested wrote: “I read it from start to finish in one day. You would call it a page turner. Our ‘hero’ is a murdering Hit Man, but such a sweet guy, you can’t help but feeling for him. I highly recommend it.”

The Amazon book review says: “This is the story of Olav: an extremely talented “fixer” for one of Oslo’s most powerful crime bosses. But Olav is also an unusually complicated fixer. He has a capacity for love that is as far-reaching as is his gift for murder. He is our straightforward, calm-in-the-face-of-crisis narrator with a storyteller’s hypnotic knack for fantasy. He has an “innate talent for subordination” but running through his veins is a “virus” born of the power over life and death. And while his latest job puts him at the pinnacle of his trade, it may be mutating into his greatest mistake. . . .”
