This is my first foray into the work of Jo Nesbo. This collection of short stories provides a good sampling of his work in the mystery genre but also shares some work in science fiction. Some stories definitely read like early works but perhaps that was the translation.

This is collection of short stories and it’s very well done. Some stories are quite long but all are intriguing and entertaining. All deal with murder or death in a clever or devious way. Good characters, well told.
