“Striking in its simplicity… Nesbo is a writer at the top of his game who continues to amaze in new and confounding ways.”
NO MAJOR SPOILERS
The story is narrated by Olav, the baddie with a heart, he gives us plenty of insights into himself, most of them self-critical, he’s no good at driving inconspicuously, robberies, prostitution (he falls in love too easily).
He really doesn’t have a lot going for him, yet in the next breath he is quoting from Darwin and changing the story of Les Miserables, unreliable could be his middle name.
Olav does have one talent, he is a fixer. He fixes people: permanently. When his boss gives him the job of fixing his unfaithful wife, Olav’s problems really begin.
