Publisher's Summary

A veritable crime lover’s delight from a true master of mystery and suspense. Experience the number one New York Times best-selling author as never before in this dark and thrilling short story collection that takes us on a journey of twisted minds and vengeful hearts.

Jo Nesbø is known the world over as a consummate mystery/thriller writer. Famed for his deft characterization, hair-raising suspense and shocking twists, Nesbø’s dexterity with the dark corners of the human heart is on full display in these inventive and enthralling stories. 

A detective with a nose for jealousy is on the trail of a man suspected of murdering his twin; a bereaved father must decide whether vengeance has a place in the new world order after a pandemic brings about the collapse of society; a garbage man fresh off a bender tries to piece together what happened the night before; a hired assassin matches wits against his greatest adversary in a dangerous game for survival; and an instantly electric connection between passengers on a flight to London may spell romance, or something more sinister. 

With Nesbø's characteristic gift for outstanding atmosphere and gut-wrenching revelations, The Jealousy Man confirms that he is at the peak of his abilities.

Pretend you don't know Hole and it's pretty good

I compare everything non-Hole Nesbo writes to his Harry Hole series, which I enjoy immensely. That's not fair to Nesbo. To get past that with this book, I played a little mind game and pretended this was written by a new author I have never heard of before. The result was that I enjoyed the stories more than other short story collections. The dialogue is believable and engaging. The stories have a wide variety of settings. I learned things in each one. Overall they are entertaining. Nesbo uses his trademark abrupt twists and turns which I always appreciate. I have a couple of criticisms. Nesbo gets a little too heady and psychological in a few places, which lost me. The other is indicative of a good short story. I was left wanting more.
I felt all the narrators were well chosen. They performed a variety of characters with distinct voices. Their cadence rose and fell with the tension.

Mostly monologues.

The only reason I kept listening was because I had purchased it. I usually love Jo Nesbo, but this was awful.
