High up. I loved the Millenium trilogy and was sad that there wouldn't be any more Steig Larson novels due to his death. I am happy again because of this novel.
Millenium trilogy books by Steig Larson. The Scandinavian setting for these crime thrillers.
The Danish accent was so pleasing to hear. It takes the crime thriller and transports the reader into an exotic land.
Help, Dept Q
Want to see more of Jussi Adler-Olsen's writing
This is a good story with interesting characters.
Why impose a Norwegian accent - especially with what sounds like a Southern drawl - when using English??? The narrator's delivery was as disconcerting as that of the Cockney accented Englishman's delivery of the Girl with the Dragon Tatoo.
This is one of the best mysteries I have listened to in a long time. It is the kind of story that you find yourself thinking about even when you aren't listening. In the beginning I felt a bit confused about the character's names, but after a bit I was able to keep them straight. And what interesting characters they are! The reader does an amazing job, using a Danish accent for the characters and then switching for the narration. It is truly an intriguing story that I would recommend to any mystery fans. I had to make myself turn off the ipod so I would listen it all up!
The authenticity of the voices was wonderful. The story was very compelling and really kept my interest throughout the book.
The discovery of what happened to each of the characters. This is a story of the theory of unintended consequences taken to the extreme.
His voices were wonderful. Loved his accents!
I liked this book so much that I promptly ordered the next one in the series and have recommended it to others!
This is my favorite book so far and I've listened to about 20 books. It kept my attention the whole time, always full of action and intrigue.
no--the reader was so bad I had to quit after a few chapters.
none --I thought the story was ok
the reader had a real hard time with accents
What an enjoyable experience. A well-written book with likeable characters. The plot revolves around the search for a missing person and was well-paced and absorbing. And as good as the story is, the narrator is even better. One of the best I've heard...with an extraordinary handling of the Danish accents. Hope there are more Department Q books to follow.
I would not even consider the next book in the Department Q series
I have totally enjoyed the Scandinavian detectives and will continue to read other authors.
The story is so bad, full of cliches, that the bizarre imagined danish accent adds nothing but an element of the ridiculous.
I can't think of a single redeeming element to this book, either the character, the writing, the story or the narration. I've read lots of books on Audible, not all of them great, but rarely ones that are this bad. If I could have given it less than 1 star I would have.
