I really like Camilla Láckberg's stories but could hardly get through this one because of the dreadful narrator.
I enjoy these Scandinavian settings and the mixture of personal and domestic details with the police work.
The narrator must have trained at the University of Silly Voices. Even when he wasn't doing a comedy old man, childish sounding woman, northern England accent etc, his 'normal' voice was annoying with affected and old-fashioned pronunciations such as 'orf' for 'off' and pronouncing the 'h' in words such as 'when' and 'where'. I will definitely avoid any books narrated by him in the future.
I've read this book before and wanted to hear it to remind myself about it before the author comes to our town for a book reading. I won't be going to the book reading because I found her voice so annoying that I couldn't get through the audiobook. Whoever told her to read her books herself did her a great disservice, imho.
