Continuing my crime reading challenge, I cracked open the second book in Jo Nesbo’s Blood on Snow duology.
Fortunately the second bookÂ Â turned out to be better than I expected. Please read on for my review of
The line connecting Midnight Sun and Blood on SnowÂ 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 onÂ a basic level.
Still using theÂ first person pov, I found this storyline was better developed and it drew me in more.
There were Â a few twists that I was expecting, which is not a surprise anymore, butÂ theyÂ 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 Â certainly the best Â 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.
