    Story
    (231)

    The execution-style murder of a Swedish housewife looks like a simple case, except that there is no obvious suspect. Wallander follows a lead on a determined stalker. But when his alibi turns out to be airtight, Wallander begins to realize that what seemed a simple crime of passion is actually far more complex and dangerous. Eventually, his search uncovers an assassination plot, and Wallander soon finds himself in a tangle with the secret police and with a ruthless foreign agent.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Mr.Hill Presents most of the Swedish men as stammering, frightened little boys. As a Swede, it drove me crazy!


    Has The White Lioness turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Only from this author.

    An ex-con is brutally murdered with an ax in Kaalbringen. Then the body of a wealthy real estate mogul is found, also the victim of a violent attack. There appears to be a serial killer on the loose, and Chief Inspector Van Veeteren is called in to help the local police. As details surrounding the grisly murders are collected, Van Veeteren finds little to go on. But then there's another murder, and shortly thereafter one of Van Veeteren's colleagues, a promising female detective, goes missing.

    If you could sum up Borkmann's Point in three words, what would they be?

    And a good story too.


    Have you listened to any of Simon Vance’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I've listened to the entire Aubrey/Maturin series...over and over. Vance's performances are like beautiful music!
