    "Gripping, brilliant"

    I found this the best of the 3 stories, the characters are so human. It is a brilliant story of a race against time to save children, intermingled with other little stories which all blend together. I found myself hurrying home from work to listen to more and finished the whole audiobook very quickly by listening whatever I was doing. This is a good story brilliantly read by Steven Pacey. I am getting a bit addicted to Scandinavian detective stories, and this one is very good.

    "Unbelievably addictive"

    Loved this book. Well written and love the narrator, so much in fact that I am currently seeking other books he has narrated. I have seen criticisms of his narrating but in my opinion they are unwarranted. Love his voice. He makes the story gripping

    "Best story I've listened to for ages"

    I have been a bit cautious of the trend for northern European crime fiction, added to the fact that my mum loves it, and I do like to go against the maternal grain... anyway, for some reason I downloaded Redemption and loved it!
    An excellent story. Clever, funny and high paced. I listened to it day and night and earned a few Audible badges on the way!

    Very well read and I'd recommend it 100 percent. Steven Pacey is a great narrator.
    My mum is now listening and enjoying.

    Story
    "Not quite Stieg Larsson...."

    ...but very good! I enjoyed listening to 'Redemption'. The plot is intricate and full of suspense, the characters believable and not hackneyed, and the delivery excellent. Steven Pacey is a superb narrator with no irritating mispronunciations or dubious accents, (it must be the BBC background!).

    Story
    "nordic noir with regional accents!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend to anyone who had read the previous two books as the backstory of the detective and his problems is not explained at all; it took quite a while before I worked out why he might have a paraplegic living in his house. I enjoyed the premise of the story.


    Would you recommend Redemption to your friends? Why or why not?

    Yes but after the first two by same author


    What three words best describe Steven Pacey’s performance?

    Odd I could not understand why some of the characters had British regional accents when the book is set in Denmark and Sweden.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No it took a while to get into the story which had several threads not all of which were as gripping as the main story. Some of the characters were beyond unusual Rose/Ursa for example.

    Story
    "Great driving tale"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Redemption to be better than the print version?

    No idea, never read the book.


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

    No, just a great police drama. There are shelves full of them, a very few are better, most are not as good. Much prefere this to Larsen. Nothing like Dickens, Asimov or Mieville


    What about Steven Pacey’s performance did you like?

    A brilliant narrator, never overstated. Superb characterization Clear and unintrusive.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Driving book with a developing plot,making it hard to put down. 14 hours difficult in o ne sitting but done in three days.


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed the book and loved the characters wonderfully brought to life by the mastery of Pacey. I will certainly listen to more of this combination and try the earlier works with the different narattor.

    Story
    "A good story with a split personality."

    This was really enjoyable. However, I did sometimes feel like I was listening to two different books. The police element was full of strange (scandanavian?) humour, though not without a certain odd charm, whilst the crime aspect of the story was riveting - having me rooting for the victims and thoroughly involved throughout.

    I know that Steven Pacey will always deliver an impeccable performance, and I'm sure he helped to make this book work for me. In lesser hands it may have just been too much of a split to keep me engaged.

    So, in spite of some odd moments (possibly a cultural thing) I would listen to more of this writer's books, especially if Steven Pacey is narrating!

    "Terrific stuff"

    Gripping crime novel with a fast moving plot and enough quirky characters to hold your interest. I had not heard of the author but will now seek out his other books. it's not all nail-biting stuff, there is some humour there and I imagine that when it doubtless gets made into a film or tv series it could be hilarious.

    Steven Pacey's narration was, as usual, spot on.

    This really was an exciting listen
