2.0 out of 5 stars Prefer his Harry Hole books, September 18, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Headhunters (Vintage Crime/Black Lizard) (Kindle Edition)
After reading all 5 of the Harry Hole books available in English and elevating Jo Nesbo to my current favorite author, I was eager to read Headhunters and waited impatiently for its availability on Kindle. Simply stated, I was very disappointed in this book and surprised that I actually finished it, but I guess I kept hoping for more. The plot is interesting and I find Nesbo has a real talent for weaving plots, but the characters are tedious. Some passages were gross, trashy and disgusting and I glossed over them. Guess you can't always hit a home run.

I had your same expectations for Headhunters as I do love Harry Hole as to the point to place Jo Nesbo among my favorite authors like you did, now, Headhunters is getting overall readers review ratings not up to Harry Hole novel standards, should I read it ?

I felt cheated by the plot. SPOILER ALERT -- the fact that Roger and Diana were in it together just came out of left field. It was a twist the book didn't deserve. I dunno, I listened to it while driving, so maybe I missed the subtle hints that were dropped that would justify the twist.

That said, this isn't as good as The Son or the Harry Hole books.
