    Story
    "Was it meant to be funny?"

    I downloaded this based on the high ratings and the fact that it was a crime thriller, which I like. Being a big fan of Jo Nesbo and Stig Larson, I assumed it would be another of that type. The story is excellent and the plot well thought-out, but what ruins the book is the general 'brevity' of the dialogue between the police characters and in the inward thoughts of the main police character. Literally 85% of the non-plot related story was written in an attempt to be funny. I say attempt, because it wasn't funny at all. Perhaps this was a case of lost in translation. The plot deserved the gavitas in general dialogue that authors such as Jo Nesbo or Micheal Connolly would have given to this subject matter. Perhaps is was meant to be funny, but that seems at odds with the plot. Comedy crime thrillers can work as in the case of the Rivers of London series, but for me this didn't. The narrator did a good job with a dodgy 'script'.

    Story
    "Fab-u-lous"

    Loved this from start to finish..had to put things on hold in the end so I could just concentrate on it and listen to it until the end. I thought this was the best in the series so far, maybe I'm just getting to know and like all the characters but I really enjoyed the story.the humour(which brought light relief to a grisly subject) and the ending was perfect. Excellent all round, can't wait for the next one to listen to , I already have it downloaded but I'm going to have a break with a different genre before I start it. You won't be disappointed if you buy this, it's got it all.

    "Good suspense"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, it's got something for everyone. Even if crime is not usually your genre like me.


    What other book might you compare Redemption to, and why?

    The whole Department Q makes for an excellent series as a whole.


    Have you listened to any of Steven Pacey’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    Only his Department Q performances but I'm sure I'll listening to more after this.

    Story
    "Enjoyable"

    I mainly enjoyed this book, initially I was a bit 'put off' by the laziness and obnoxious character of Carl Morck , I don't remember him like this from a previous book I listened to. However, as the story got underway he seemed to get more on track and was ok. The other odd thing about the characters is that Assad, the guy, who if I remember correctly was the cleaner, seems much more on the ball than Carl is!
    These things aside, I enjoyed the story and became absorbed by it, worth a listen.

    Story
    "All four of these books kept me gripped"

    While initially it took some time to get used to English (Scottish, Welsh etc) accents used on people with Danish/Swedish names, the story was really good. I listened to all four books in order and enjoyed all of them. There were many different emotions - from sadness, horror, and humour. I hope there will be many more Dept Q stories to come.

    "enjoyable"

    To me these series has been written a little tongue in cheek. Not too serious in its storylines, and at times the writer makes you smile. The totally dysfunctional Dept Q works for me

    Story
    "Fab! So glad I stuck with it"

    I must confess this has been in my library for 8 months with 2 attempts but I just couldn't get into it. Until I listened to Mercy after reading reviews and I'm hooked now! I went back to this after thoroughly enjoying Mercy and I'm so glad I did! You do need to read them in order to understand the background with Hardy and the past but I did skip book 2 as I already had this in my library and will go back to Disgrace as I'm already part way through Guilt which also has me hooked! I love the different accents - especially Assam - I did laugh at a few points - Steven Pacey really does step into the parts and helps you picture the characters.

    An excellent listen with great narration - space when it came to an end but it was finished well thank fully - no loose ends you get with some books. Recommended listen!

    "Highly recommended"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Redemption to be better than the print version?

    I haven't had a chance to read the print version; however, in my opinion the audio edition is much better than the print version and that's thanks to excellent reading of Steven Pacey.


    What other book might you compare Redemption to, and why?

    This is the third book about the detective Karl Merck and his assistants Assad and Rose. If you are considering buying this book, I suggest you start with Book 1 and Book 2.


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

    I really enjoy Steven Pacey's reading, they way he micmics various accents and protagonists of this story, I think the way he reads significantly contributes to the lissening experience.


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

    Parts of this book are quite funny and commical; however, other parts are quite dark and rather depressing.


    Any additional comments?

    Well, Book 4 is definetly next, really hoping that Book 5 is currenly in the process of being writted.

    What did you like most about Redemption?

    Gripping story line


    What other book might you compare Redemption to, and why?

    Don't know the answer to this.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    When the killer was caught, of course!

    Can't say too much otherwise I'll give the story away! The outcome was very moving.


    Any additional comments?
