Book cover woes

So, there are a few things we know about the character on the left:
  • He has blond hair.
  • He always wears some sort of long coat to conceal the arsenal of knives and swords he perpetually carries.
  • He has a huge Roman nose.
I suppose 1 out of 3 isn't terrible for a fantasy book cover. 

It still irks me.  Possibly especially because I like the covers on this series.  Is it really so impossible to get things right in urban fantasy where you have the option of using real people as models?  Really?  Sigh.

Are there any covers that really irked you by being off-model/out of character?
