Wanted to love this. Loved the Wallendar series and other detective series set in Scandinavia. This was just too much violence for my enjoyment.
Loved the Keeper of Lost Causes. Liked the ending of The Absent One. But too violent and vulgar for my taste. Still looking forward to book 3.
Great ending. Love Assad!
I preferred the narrator on book one with his Danish type accent. This book went with a British voice which detracts from the setting of the novel . However the narrator did a great job, I would hope to see them use a voice that conveys the feel of the country with which the story is set.
After listening to the first book in this series it was an AWFUL disappointment to have a different narrator for the second book. The flavor of the series was just not "right".
Beautifully written with interjections of humor amidst a dark storyline . Highly recommend this author and they are making a film about Book 1
I live in syracuse Utah, not Florida.
I thought it was a great book. I liked the story, the characters and narration.
i like to read. i like to listen.
i'm really into this series. i like the members of department q, and their allies and enemies. obviously a larger story is at play here with both Carl's and Assad's pasts, and i can't wait to see them uncovered. i love the interactions between these two, and the of course i love the investigations of cold cases....my type of stories.
this second showing wasn't as good as the first, but from what i've read this so far is the weakest of all of the installments -- and it was still pretty good. i'm a fan of department q.
the narrator was absolutely the wrong choice for this novel. it was very difficult to listen to him do these voices, especially Assad...but i got through it, and the book was good despite his narration. probably a fine narrator for other stories, just not this one.
I was an avid reader of books before my work took most of my time so now I listen to Audible books when I'm exercising or walking my dog. I like mystery and thriller novels, particularly good serial killer novels. I'm a writer and a psychotherapist.
This audio book was fantastic from beginning to end. Narrator is highly skilled and there was never an uninteresting moment. I Dont even usually buy books that have to be read with an accent .
No criticism towards the reader, but a heavy Nordic accent would be more appropriate for this series.
