Firstly, I’m going to start off with the book’s description (as can be found on Amazon):
Olav lives the lonely life of a fixer.
When you ‘fix’ people for a living – terminally – it’s hard to get close to anyone.
Now he’s finally met the woman of his dreams.
But there are two problems.
She’s his boss’s wife.
And Olav’s just been hired to kill her.
I first read this novel - although it’s very short and bordering on novella category - last year. I purchase it in Madrid airport as I didn’t have anything to read for the flight back to the UK. Apart from almost having a heart attack at the price (10.90 Euros), I read it pretty quickly. It didn’t move me, but it did entertain me, which, for the duration of a flight, isn’t too far from what I was after.
The novel sees Olav battle a dilemma none of us will ever want to face: having to kill someone we truly love. Suppose that’s what you get for being a hitman, though. Nevertheless, it was still an ‘alright’ novel(la). It was the first one of Jo Nesbo I’ve ever read, and if I’m being honest, I enjoyed his writing style. He’s pretty good. Although, I am currently reading through The Snowman which I am thoroughly enjoying.
