    "Lots of thrills!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Invisible Murder to be better than the print version?

    Katy Kellgren's reading is AMAZING. She's dramatic without being OVERdramatic, and is easy to listen to.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I LOVED The Boy in the Suitcase, so was eagerly awaiting this new book. It's as good as everyone says - as good as the first, with more Nina Borg character development. Don't want to give away anything, but there are definite surprises along the way.


    Any additional comments?

    Recommended to mystery & thriller fans. :)

    "Clever story, sloppy production, not a fave"

    Kaaberbol and Friis are very adept at weaving together the stories of multiple characters and points of view into a story with good forward momentum. I have to say, though, that I find the principal character in this book and the last, Nina Borg, to be fairly unappealing and not at all an individual I can identify with or root for.

    The audiobook is sorely in need of editing. The narrator will re-read a section more than once, occasionally interjecting "Oh! He's supposed to be Hungarian!" or something like that. I'm also not fond of her transition from reading to overacting in tense plot moments.

    All in all, although the plot is good, I would find it hard to recommend this overall.

    "Narrator Mistakes - Where is the Editor!?!?"
    Any additional comments?

    Katherine Kellgren's voice is easy to listen to and appropriate for this story, but where the heck was the editing and quality control??? There are many examples of a line being repeated, and at 11:50 of chapter 11 we are subjected to hearing the narrator stumble and exclaim with frustration. DISTRACTING!

    "Production Values Off Here"

    I purchased this because it part of the Soho Crime Press catalog and I usually enjoy international stories. The story was a bit confusing and was not helped by what were obvious production glitches. Once would have been ok but they kept happening, as if the editors forgot to delete mistakes of narrator.

    Story
    "very poorly edited"
    Would you try another book from the authors and/or Katherine Kellgren?

    So, I have to say up front that I really hate the way this woman performs a book. Her voice is grating and she will suddenly increase her volume the moment anything is meant to be getting dramatic. If you are listening with earbuds, it's especially awful! I just cannot listen to any more books read by her.
    This production, though, was worse than usual because of all the editing errors. What the hell?! On many occasions she says something over and over, I suppose trying to get it right, but the wrong ones were never edited out. She even makes an aside or two. Very confusing and so annoying. Maybe if it had been free, I could have overlooked these, but it is unprofessional to put a book so poorly edited out for people to purchase.
    The story...seriously, I got so annoyed with the grating voice and the poor editing that my experience of the book was just ruined. I do think it is a good story line. But I won't be reading any more Nina Borg books because of this poorly produced one.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    She detracted SO much, as I stated. I can just never listen to a book read by her, I guess. Hate her voice and way of reading.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    A desire to have my money back.

    Story
    "Meh"

    Why is this a series? Is it just because it features the same main character, Nina? I suppose that’s all you need for a series: a reoccurring character, but I thought there’d be more of a continuing back story. About halfway through was some exposition that helped remind me about her and her family, but I wish it had been placed at the start because (maybe it’s just me because my memory is bad) for the life of me I don’t see how this connects back to Book 1.

    I had a hard time with it all; I was lost almost from the start. I had to go back and re read the synopsis a few times to remind myself what the plot was, and I even googled the book get a more detailed outline! I contemplated abandoning it or setting it aside for later since my attention was not focused, but I changed my mind because I still felt I hadn’t yet reached the “true start” of the drama… but then again, was all the detail up until that point (roughly 1/3 in) just filler or important-to-know detail I would need later? All the reviews I read said the book was great so I soldiered on. Ultimately, all I can say is: Meh, whatever. I didn’t love it.

    Based on the first 2 books I normally would not bother with the 3rd instalment in the series, but I have to say the synopsis does sound intriguing so I’ll keep it on my “ to read” list.

    The production had quite a few glitches with repeating sentences in many places – really there is no excuse for that… perhaps I am not the only one who needed to play closer attention to the book! Ha!

    I had a peculiar “problem” with the narrator: Katherine Kellgren. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the “Royal Spyness” series that she also narrates and I associate her voice with that series so strongly that it felt strange to hear her narrate anything else! Normally when I recognise a narrator from another book or series it doesn’t impact the experience at all, but in this case because my association is so strong it was strange. I suspect I would have the same issue with Judy Kaye & Mary Peiffer who narrate Sue Grafton’s alphabet series. With all 3 of these women, their narration adds so much to my perception of the main character in their respective series that it’s discombobulating to have them play any other role.
