The suspense and the development of Carl and Assad. I am hooked on this series now and am about to download the next in line.
Whiny and British.
As many of the other reviews state, I don't think this was a good narrator for this book. He would be a fine choice for a book set in England but not Denmark. I spent the first couple of hours or so struggling because all the voices were different and the pronunciation of the names have changed. I have not read the book so I don't know if he is reading it word for word but it seems like there was a lot of British slang in this book. It was hard for me to create Denmark in my mind listening to the book when I hear British voices and words thrown around.
Slightly depressing story. Ok characters. Solid writing.
The narrator was good, except perhaps some of the female characters. However, an English narrator with occasional Scotch accents felt all wrong for this Scandinavian thriller.
Enjoy Carl, Assad, and Rosie and their growing camaraderie. Plot is disturbing but keeps readers going, going for the best but expecting the worst.
good writing and extremely gripping storytelling. just so dark. I can't take too much of this author at a time. I do plan to read or listen to the rest of the novels in this series, but I'll probably have to space them out.
This story was very good, well written...but it was too "messed" up for me, meaning it was really gruesome. My husband loved it! I know there are people in the world like those in the book and it was disturbing to me, but my husband says "it's just a good story, by a clever minded author". I know my hubby will read the sequence of Department Q...I'm not sure I will. The reader was very good, the plot was enthralling.
As an entreprenuer, it is hard for me to shut off my brain! It is also hard for me to sit still! I love audibles! I can exercise, work on "chores" , travel and be entertained! Always looking for a good story!
Protect us from teenage girls! Story is interesting, however, I didn't like any of the characters except for the two investigators. Narrator does an incredible job with the story and is the reason I stuck with it!
I don't know what possessed me to return to this series after my review of book one was lukewarm at best. However, I'm pleased to have returned to Department Q. This book is gruesome and sad but despite the mystery being pretty much revealed from the start it is engrossing to listen to the detectives figure it out and find redemption. This time around the characters are more enjoyable and there is hidden humor in this dark story. On to Q #3.
