    This is a long book in terms of pages. Promises much but as a stand-alone it is also a challenge to get into rather than that familiar series with a trusted and much loved character. Firstly, I love the pace. This steady build up, gently setting the scene in this wonderful location of a mountain wilderness homestead. Two brothers inherited the ‘farm’ when their parents died suddenly. Roy stayed on while Carl went abroad to find his way.

Promises much but as a stand-alone it is also a challenge to get into rather than that familiar series with a trusted and much loved character. Firstly, I love the pace. This steady build up, gently setting the scene in this wonderful location of a mountain wilderness homestead. Two brothers inherited the ‘farm’ when their parents died suddenly. Roy stayed on while Carl went abroad to find his way. Not that the land pays its way; it is more the lifestyle it allows; like frontier pioneers. Their father called this place ‘The Kingdom’. Roy is a thinker and a longer. Carl is a dreamer and a socialite. Carl returns home after 15 years and throws a party, the townsfolk attend and hug and chat with Carl like old buddies. Roy runs the town’s service station and at best, folk shake his hand. 3 things have the potential to change the status quo. 1. There is talk that a by-pass will finally be built, isolating the community and leaving it effectively cut off from the stream of traffic and visitors the road brings. 2. Carl returns home with plans to build a hotel, spa and cabin accommodation on the family’s land. Bringing the town new sources of income. To raise capital he wants to float a mutual share scheme where all the citizens of the local town have the chance to invest their money, share the profits and losses. 3. Some mystery surrounds the car accident that cost the boys their parents. The sheriff now believes the recovery of the wreak and bodies is now viable and plans to begin the salvage operation. All three plans have the potential to change Roy’s life and have ramifications for the wider population. Why as this sample concludes, (End of Part 1) are we left with the feeling the third action may bring “The Kingdom” crashing down? Certainly it seems to be troubling Roy the most or is this misdirection? Unresolved relationships and bitter family feuds seem to lie beneath this settled township and pleasant neighbourhood The book is primed and ready as a thriller to explode and I can’t wait to read it to the very end.

    I had read a couple of his books before and wasn't impressed, but the reviews of this one were so effusive, I thought I would give it a chance. I didn't find any of the suspense or thrills I was looking for. The book just seemed to be about two brothers. One who is searching for a get rich quick scheme and the other who will do anything to protect his sibling including killing people who interfer.

The two live in an insular community full of people who all have their own agendas and will do anything they can to achieve their goals no matter who they hurt. And none of them take any responsibility for the messes they get themselves into. No exciting revelations, just a lot of jealous greedy people out to hurt each other.

    I really enjoyed this book. I've read all the author's Harry Hole books with enjoyment, but this was a class above them. The book has a slow pace and much of it seems to document a rather humdrum situation of country folk living on a mountain top. But gradually little dollops of menace are skillfully inserted by the author and we begin to realise all is not as it seems. In fact it's a horror show. I would say it's not just a "thriller" - it's literature. I really enjoyed this book. I've read all the author's Harry Hole books with enjoyment, but this was a class above them.

    An intriguing long story of murder, cover-up and betrayal. Roy is a cool calculating killer but I found myself wanting him to get away with it. Big brother Roy " only" kills four people directly but also clears up after at least two people killed by his brother. All Roy wants to do is own his own service station but then becomes involved with his brother's grandiose plans and his sister-in-law. Roy plans to move away, but his brother keeps dragging him back into the " deadly" kingdom. Can he con An intriguing long story of murder, cover-up and betrayal.

    So far maybe a 3. Characters are not likeable but that is not the main reason for being lukewarm about this Nesbo. Hard to explain but seems like he is working hard to make a story. Perhaps it is also comparing the quality of this story to Phillip Pullman's 'His Dark Material.' Perhaps it is covid which makes one long for a better world. Nothing good about the world The Kingdom is set in. So far maybe a 3. Characters are not likeable but that is not the main reason for being lukewarm about this Nesbo.

    Family tragedy with Shakespearian undertones makes for a great read. This book asks lots of questions about loyalty and what is important in relationships. There is always an undertone of menace but the characters are vivid. The book works as it is kept simple with relatively few characters all good f who are flawed.

    This was not what I expected from a Jo Nesbo book. But like the others has me doing a lot of thinking after the fact. Two brothers and a terrible father use their co-dependency to right wrong that may ruin their plans.

    A 4.5. Loved it as so different and complex. Engrossing. A half off as virtually no redeeming factors for anybody and I felt I was in a world of psychopaths. So a bit OTT in that way. Otherwise great characters.

    Very good book. Not as macabre as is usual with Jo Nesbo. Very good plot but does get ' wordy' at times. Talk about dysfunctional families!! Very good book. Not as macabre as is usual with Jo Nesbo. Very good plot but does get ' wordy' at times. Talk about dysfunctional families!!

    I wanted this book to be so much more than it was. Love all the other Jo Nesbo stuff, but could not get into this one.

    Great book. Read over 500 pages in three days(nights). Just a good read for cold, winter, dreary days.
