Midnight Sun

1 Mins read

MidnightSun300Midnight Sun is follows Blood on Snow, and sees another hitman on the run from mobsters. Jon Hansen has escaped Oslo and finds himself hiding out in a tiny community in the far north of Norway where he’s helped by a 10-year-old called Knut and his devout Christian mother, Lea. The endless sunlight of the Arctic summer, the Sami booze, fear, guilt, and the sense that he’s falling in love with Lea all addle his mind. That’s not what he needs when the kingpin’s men arrive, particularly as his biggest flaw is that he’s a hitman who just can’t pull the trigger. A tightly written tale of love, splattered with blood, and featuring a friendly reindeer. What could be wrong with that? Read my review here.
