    After successfully - but bloodily - dismantling a complicated hostage situation at a bank in the suburbs of Stockholm, Detective Paul Hjelm is faced with the requisite investigation by Internal Affairs. It is a potentially career-ending inquiry, but he is plucked out of it by the National Criminal Police commissioner, who drops him into an elite task force of officers assembled from across the country to find an elusive killer with a sophisticated modus operandi and even more sophisticated tastes.

    A suspenseful and well written mystery. The investigation's progress seemed realistic and was believable. The narrator was excellent. Very enjoyable listening experience.

    In the vein of John le Carré and Graham Greene, this contemporary international thriller follows Milo Weaver as he is drawn into a conspiracy that links riots in the Sudan, an assassin committing suicide, and an old friend who's been accused of selling secrets to the Chinese. Once the CIA and Homeland Security are after him, the only way for him to survive is to return, headfirst, into Tourism.

    Story

    Wonderful, full of plot twists. Characterization was well done--except for the bratty, unrealistically old-for-her-years daughter, whom I wanted to garrote. Reading was well done.

    The New York Times called Sir Edward Feathers one of the most memorable characters in modern literature. A lyrical novel that recalls his fully lived life, Old Filth has been acclaimed as Jane Gardam's masterpiece. And now that novel has been joined by a companion that also bursts with humor and wisdom: The Man in the Wooden Hat. As a portrait of a marriage, with all the bittersweet secrets and surprising fulfillment of the 50-year union of two remarkable people, this novel is a triumph.

    Story

    A wonderful addition to _Old Filth_. I did not want to let go of the characters when I'd finished it and was so pleased to learn that I could continue our "relationship" a bit longer. Wonderful reader.

    In this dark and gripping novel from number-one best-selling Swedish writing duo Roslund and Hellström, Piet Hoffman is the Swedish police’s most valuable secret operative. His cover is that of a lieutenant inside the ruthless Polish mafia, trying to take over amphetamine distribution within Sweden’s prison system. With this, his most dangerous assignment, success will mean a new identity and the freedom to start a new life with his wife and young sons.

    Howard says: "Forget the comparision - enjoy the read"
    "Gripping!"
    Overall

    What an amazing book! No, not Stieg Larson--the writing is better, characters more developed, and theme more complex. Narrator does a lovely job, too.
