At roughly 200 pages long, Blood on Snow is more of a noir novella than a full novel, but Jo Nesbo has packed the story full of so much action and background story that you’ll only notice when you turn the last page and immediately wish it didn’t have to end. There are plenty of surprises along the way as well as a lyrical tone to the writing that will grip you from the start. In this audio extract, punk legend Patti Smith brings Jo Nesbo’s words to life with drama and suspense. Listen now for a taste of what’s to come in Blood on Snow.
