The Friday 56 – Blood on Snow by Jo Nesbo

The Friday 56 is a weekly meme hosted over at Freda’s Voice. The rules are simple and go something like this.

Friday 561.  Grab a book, any book.
2.  Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader (If you have to improvise, that’s ok.)
3.  Find any sentence, (or a few, just don’t spoil it)
4.  Post it.
5.  Add the post url, not your blog url to the Linky.
6. Tweet it #Friday56 (not an official Freda’s Voice rule)

It doesn’t seem like it’s been a little over 3 months since my last entry, but it has. Anyway this weeks Friday 56 is from Jo Nesbo’s Blood on Snow. If you’re familiar with Nesbo but haven’t read this one yet, don’t let the tender moment fool you.

We made love. It’s not out of modesty that I choose this romantic, chaste euphemism instead of a more direct, instrumental word. But because making love really was the most fitting description. . . . I held he incredibly carefully, like one of the dried flowers I sometimes found in the pages of books from the library, so brittle and fragile that they dissolved under my fingers as soon as I touched them. I was scared she would disappear.

    I’ve never read anything g by this author. Is this a good one to get started with?

      Hi Karen, it’s hard to say. This is only the third book I’ve read by him out of the 20+ he has written. This particular book is the first book in the Olav Johansen series. I started reading Nesbo when The Bat was translated to English. The Bat is the first book in the Inspector Harry Hole series and his first book. You can definitely see his progression as a writer.

      I would say, that’s a hard questions to answer since Nesbo is a serial writer and if you’re like me you have to start at the beginning of the series. It’s classic Scandinavian Noir. It’s not high literature. It’s a quick read at less than 200 pages. I’m only a 1/4 of the way through and I am enjoying it.
