I like mysteries, but this writer does something more. Arnauldur Indridason's stories are thought provoking long after the book is finished. This tale creeps up on you. This is my favorite Inspector Erlender story and the narrator does an excellent job with the characters and the Icelandic names. The end was very moving.
I hope Audible will procure more of Indridason's books. Really excellent!
Not having read the print version, I don't know. However, Peter May creates such an extraordinary and complete dream in the reader's mind, I am sure it would be excellent.
I could pick several which would constitute spoilers, but the one where the main character, Finn, is punched by the village reverend is a great one.
Peter Forbes disappears, and Scotland is completely unveiled. His narration is SO good, I barely noticed him. I just heard and saw the places and people. That's the highest compliment I can render to a reader, and I'm hard to please.
I just felt it was very very good, and it has stayed with me the way a good book does.
Like the title of my review, please get all of Peter May's Scottish stories and please get Peter Forbes to narrate more!
