I found this book chilling when I first read it in the early 70's and having it read was wonderful - still creepy. I hope the other titles by Sjowall and Wahloo are brought along as well. The forward by Henning Mankell was frosting on the cake.
I'm a fan of Dean Koontz' books but I'll never know about this one! The narrator reads clearly but with a thud-like monotonous cadence that is far too sticky-sweeet for a Dean Koontz novel; she would be better suited to a bodice-ripper or Redbook. I can't stand any of the characters and her reading makes all of the women sound on the verge of hyseterics - I've made it into the second part and am finally giving up on it after listening to her read more of the "sexy" parts - who cares what happens to these weenies?
