Publisher's Summary

A British journalist is invited to Malmö to interview an old university friend who is now one of Sweden's leading film directors. When he discovers the director's glamorous film-star wife dead in her apartment, the Skåne County Police are called in to solve the high-profile case.

Among the investigating team is Inspector Anita Sundström, who soon finds the list of suspects growing. As Anita battles to discover the answers amid the antagonism of some of her colleagues, she even begins to think that the person she is becoming attracted to could be the murderer.

    Story
    "Worst narrator EVER"
    Would you try another book from Torquil MacLeod and/or Marguerite Gavin?

    I don't know about the author as I had to return due to the narrator. Her Scandanavian accents sounded Carribean and she has never stepped foot in Scotland or heard a Geordie accent. I was so confused within the first hour I had to give up


    Would you ever listen to anything by Torquil MacLeod again?

    I couldn't get beyond the lack of research. No English person would drink liptons tea and a northerner would always drink Yorkshire tea. Electric kettles are available in Stockholm....I know I lived there!..........research!!


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Marguerite Gavin?

    Someone who had at least visited the country the book was set in. Johnathon Keebler


    Any additional comments?

    Terrible

    Story
    "Excellent thriller"
    If you could sum up Meet Me in Malmo in three words, what would they be?

    Good Scandinavian story


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Meet Me in Malmo?

    The final few pages.


    What does Marguerite Gavin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Not having to strain trying to pronounce the Scandinavian names etc.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Not really but these sort of crime stories are always a satisfactory read.


    Any additional comments?

    Will follow the series without hesitation.

    Story
    "Slow Burner but worth a listen "

    Although the majority of the book is set in Sweden the author is British and for me this story lacked the idiosyncrasis and style of a Scandinavian thriller. Narration not the best but got use to it over the course of the story. I liked the main character Anita Sundstrom and will give the next novel a listen to see how her character is developed. Good book if you like police procedure without blood and gore.

    Story
    "Simplistic dialogue and story line."

    Nothing else to write other than there are far more intelligent and Covent authors out there; therefore I would not recommend this book nor will I seek out other novels by the author.

    Story
    "I have struggled as far as chapter 6"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Excruciating narration makes this difficult to follow. As a Scot with a long association with the north east of England I could only discern a touch of Ulster! Unfortunately the overall effect is to make the story incomprehensible.


    Has Meet Me in Malmo put you off other books in this genre?

    Definitely.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Marguerite Gavin’s performances?

    No.


    What character would you cut from Meet Me in Malmo?

    Unsexy fat journalists.


    Any additional comments?

    I will be returning this.
