Summary
Jon, the narrator of this excellent standalone from Edgar-finalist Nesbo, is a afixer, a or hit man, akin to the hero of 2015as "Blood on Snow" Jon, who has done jobs for an Oslo crime boss known as the Fisherman, has fled the city for Kasund, a tiny village in the far north populated by Sami (Lapps) and dominated by a very strict religious ethos. Taking refuge in a church, he tells the townspeople he meets that his name is Ulf. A stranger in a strange land, Ulf slowly reveals what led him to leave Oslo: a failed hit and a theft that has Johnny Moe, the Fishermanas henchman, after him. Ulf is a bad boy with a heart of gold; he got into trouble because he was trying to help someone close to him. His self-mocking deprecations are endearing: aNot that Iam an irresponsible or careless person; Iave just got really bad judgment.a Immaculately plotted and perfectly paced, the book is also darkly funny and deadly serious. Scandinavian gloom notwithstanding, it has a neatly satisfying and surprisingly moving ending
