I am an avid listener of Camilla Lackberg ever since listening to The Ice princess. I do think that you have to listen to the books in the order that they were written so that you can get to know the characters and also get used to Camilla's style of writing. The Gallow's Bird is certainly, in my opinion, a nail biter and a brilliant listen. It keeps you guessing until the very end as to whom comitted the crime. I thoroughly enjoyed it and also loved the reading. Emonn's accents were brilliant. I can't wait to see what is going to happen next. Hopefully The German Brat is translated soon so that we can find out.
