Loved the story. As much as I like Tapper, this book would have been better with an experienced narrator. Nevertheless a good listen.

Terrific, dark mystery

Another great Hanne Wilhelmsen book. This is a terrific book with a quirky Norwegian bent but it is compelling and very entertaining. The performance is very good and the overall experience highly recommended.

This is a great historical novel and guides the listener through the maze of Henry VIII's life with Ann Boleyn after the birth of Elizabeth. Fascinating, particularly since the story is told by Thomas Cromwell.

Wolf Hall was terrific and this is a worthy follow-on but can also stand alone. I kept asking myself how the author could fashion such complex yet entertaining dialogue.

OK but not great

Would you try another book from Alan Furst and/or Daniel Gerroll?

Probably would.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

I was disappointed. It just ended and there was much missed opportunity for the author to add something more.

What about Daniel Gerroll’s performance did you like?

Nicely done and fitting for the material.

Was Mission to Paris worth the listening time?

Yeah, I guess so. Some interesting perspective on the political atmosphere of the era.

I loved this book

If you could sum up 1222: The Hanne Wilhelmsen Novels, Book 8 in three words, what would they be?

Chilling mystery.

What other book might you compare 1222: The Hanne Wilhelmsen Novels, Book 8 to and why?

None come to mind. This book was unique.

Which scene was your favorite?

Most of the scenes take place in a hotel, but the psychological aspect is gripping.

Any additional comments?

Please, Audible, get more of Wilhelmsen's work.

but wait it out. A good book about an interesting time. It does scream for a good editor in the early part, and but the book does eventually move and the story is very interesting.
