Yes. Nesbo is great at transporting you to the scene. This was a very taut and nicely paced thriller.
The others in the series featuring Harry Hole; however, this was unique in that it dealt with the drug underworld.
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE. Wonderfully paced. I think Sachs made the book more enjoyable for me.
Great from beginning to end. Never a lull in the action.
Yes. I thought it was so interesting that Nesser completely set his main character aside (Detective Van Veeteren) and focused on Munster. It literally is Munster's Case. The story is really good and the narration superb.
Just an opportunity to see Munster fully developed. This is a really good series.
No. I've read all of Nesser's work on my Kindle. This was my first Nesser audible download I believe. Vance does an amazing job of moving between characters. I look forward to his future work.
Yes, because the narration is simply that good.
Carl Mørck is a great character. He is not AS flawed as many of the detectives in other Nordic crime series. I would call him a less messy Harry Hole (Jo Nesbo).
Any time Mørck interacts with his co-workers. He's hysterical.
I couldn't even finish it because the narrator sounded too mature for the role of Katniss and basically seemed miscast.
Yes. I purchased it because I liked the movie treatment of the first book (I actually hadn't read the first book). I don't think I'll be buying any more YA fiction - either for my Kindle or on Audible.
After seeing the movie version of the first book, I was expecting the narrator to sound more youthful.
Twist and turns.
The Girl with the Dragon Tatoo. It held my attention as well as the Larsson series.
When the family was finally reunited.
Same - when the family was reunited.
The narration was OUTSTANDING. The narrator moved seamlessly between characters. Perfect performance. The story itself was so full of twists that towards the end it got a little overwrought but it was still a great read. I can't wait to read Kepler's next book.
I'm a huge Nesbo fan and was thrilled when his first book, The Bat, became available at Audible. It is a great read and introduces Nesbo's character, detective Harry Hole. Having read all of Nesbo's other books featuring Harry, The Bat really helped give me some background and helped me understand him more. Loved every minute!
Definitely Harry. He is a complicated man and brilliant detective.
Too many to choose.
Harry goes down under in this thrill ride of an adventure.
Thoroughly engrossing thriller.
Too many too choose from. Probably when Merete finally comes face to face with her nemesis.
The way he shifted accents effortlessly. It was a very well-paced reading.
Thoroughly engrossing thriller.
Parker's performance makes these silly books worth a listen. She seamlessly switches from character to character without missing a beat. I'm a fan of True Bood and never thought I'd enjoy these books as much as I do. They are a great listen when I run and I think that's due to Parker's great work.
The narrator was monotonous to listen to and I finally gave up and read it on my Kindle. He reads very, very slowly. I use Audible.com downloads when I run and the performance was so slow I had to speed it up. It was like listening to a chipmunk read! I'm a huge fan of Scandanavian mysteries - Larsson, Mankel, Nesbo, etc., and looked forward to trying Lackberg. She's a little simplistic and not my favorite.
Johanna Parker is fantastic and keeps you enthralled. She is a real voice talent. I don't know how she does it but her voice is shockingly like Anna Paquin's. So if you enjoy HBO's True Blood, you'll love these books. The books are not completely true to the show so you get the characters you love and some similarity in the plot lines, but there are enough differences to hold your interest.
