I agree with a previous reviewer who suggested that a better translation would have helped. It felt literal and stilted at times. I'm a fan of Mankell and I had a hard time believing he wrote this book.
The pacing felt slow and repetitive. I kept listening, assuming things would pick up; alas, it was not to be, and at the end I was mad at myself for sticking with it.
The narrator had what I would describe as a "dry" voice. Combined with the slow story, it made for a dreary experience.
