    "creepy and captivating"
    What made the experience of listening to The Sandman the most enjoyable?

    the wonderful voice of saul reichlin, easy to follow story with great detail and i listened straight through in one go couldn't turn it off.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Having listened to earlier books it follows the lifes of the detectives and has you on the edge of your seat waiting to see what will happen and there are some great twists and I cant wait to see if there will be another installment.


    What about Saul Reichlin’s performance did you like?

    Saul has been one of my favourite narrator since the girl with the dragon tattoo, he makes the flow of the story so easy to follow and he has a real clear voice that is just so easy to listen to and allows you to lose yourself in the story


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

    yes i did as well started on a sunday afternoon and finished early monday morning well worth the tired day.

    "Terrifying"

    Saul Reichlin is a master of foreign-language thriller audio, and he's used to really scary effect in this Scandi-horror with a kick-ass heroine and an even more kick-ass hero. The villain is the most frightening yet in the series. Must-listen
