Midnight Sun : Blood on Snow #2, by Jo Nesbo

Midnight Sun : Blood on Snow #2, by Jo Nesbo

Continuing my crime reading challenge, I cracked open the second book in Jo Nesbo’s Blood on Snow duology.

Fortunately the second book  turned out to be better than I expected. Please read on for my review of

Midnight Sun

The line connecting Midnight Sun and Blood on Snow is thin, but even saying that, I can’t see them standing on their own. The differences in the stories are enough to classify them as opposites, yet they compliment each other on a basic level.

Still using the first person pov, I found this storyline was better developed and it drew me in more.

There were  a few twists that I was expecting, which is not a surprise anymore, but they didn’t bother me as much in this book, probably because of the characters.
What’s more, in Midnigh Sun Jo Nesbo the characters evolved to bring more depth which added to the story and made it more satisfying to read.

You can’t say it has a happy ending, but  certainly the best  options these characters could ever hope for!

I liked Midnight Sun better than Blood on Snow. I didn’t have to read them back to back, but I’m glad I did so. It made me appreciate the storyline more.

Fleeing to an isolated corner of Norway, to a mountain town so far north that the sun never sets, Jon hopes to find sanctuary amongst a local religious sect.

Hiding out in a shepherd’s cabin in the wilderness, all that stands between him and his fate are Lea, a bereaved mother and her young son, Knut.

But while Lea provides him with a rifle and Knut brings essential supplies, the midnight sun is slowly driving Jon to insanity.
And then he discovers that The Fisherman’s men are getting closer…
