When Olav is contracted to kill the boss’s wife, he knows his future with the organization had become less stable. Unlike most crime novels, Jo Nesbo’s Blood on Snow follows a contract killer on his assignment. An unlikely hero, Olav fights for the underdog and lives a lively life in his own head. After having a rough childhood, Olav finds his niche in the criminal world, only to be in the position of knowing too much about his boss. Once that happens, he knows he became a risk and expendable.
This short novel takes many turns and ends with the title scene. An unexpected hero and a great read!
