Publisher's Summary

Dan Hendricks is a man in need of a lifeline. A former CIA operative, he is now an agent for hire by foreign powers on the hunt for dangerous fugitives. It's a lethal world at the best of times, and Dan knows his number is almost up. His next job could be his last - and his next job is his biggest yet.

The target sounds trackable enough: Jacques Fillon, who gave up his life trying to save a fellow passenger following a bus crash in northern Sweden. But the man was something of an enigma in this rural community, and his death exposes his greatest secret: Jacques Fillon never existed at all.

Dan is tasked with uncovering Fillon's true identity - but can he do so before his own past catches up with him?

    I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!

    Story
    "Excellent espionage novel!"

    A Death in Sweden is about intrigue and murder within US intelligence operations. There are really no good guys here. It is a power struggle of two senior level US intelligence leaders. Dan Hendricks, the protagonist , kills a lot of people, but in the end he is simply a pawn, a highly effective pawn but still a pawn. The setting of the novel is Europe, mostly Sweden, France, and Germany.

    Story
    "Not uninteresting, but essentially c&&p"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would recommend this to a friend who just wants some diversion, but who isn't troubled by poor narration and plot. I was interested enough to finish the book, but basically this is junk.


    If you’ve listened to books by Kevin Wignall before, how does this one compare?

    NA


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Rivals GW Bush for pronunciation slips.


    Could you see A Death in Sweden being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    It probably would make a great Hollywood movie--lots and lots of gore, but not much else to it.

    Story
    "Full of boilerplate"

    This is below the level of airplane books . Writing is very bad, with short sentences as if written for kids in grade school. No character development , lots of names, lots of gratuitous violence with little explaining who the various people are. Not even sure who was who, or why they were killing each other.

    "Never saw it coming!"

    This really is a first class story! I'm angry with myself for starting it with a really synical attitude. I had recently read a few too many sub par novels and suspected this was merely one more. Please don't make the same mistake! This is creative writing at a whole other level. Allow yourself to get lost in it's interesting setting, well developed characters and a pay off that I personally never saw coming! A splendid read and worth your investment of time! Enjoy!

    Story
    "enjoyable and tidy"

    A death in Sweden is an entertaining story with a protagonist that wins you over. It's not a new concept but the spy mystery genre is well executed. I listened with Audible and enjoyed the narrator as well.

    "Just Awesome!"

    Fast paced, sometimes sad, comical relief when appropriate. Plot was clear with enough suspense to keep you going. Audiobook well narrated.
