Publisher's Summary

When a mummified foot, a pile of bones, and a split skull are discovered in a Danish bog, is it a case for the police or archaeologists? It becomes a case for chief inspector Tobias Lange when it is confirmed the remains are those of a young male, early twenties, beaten to death with a blunt instrument about two decades earlier.

Tobias finds himself on the trail of eco-warriors, Sami protesters safeguarding reindeer rights in Lapland, and a disaffected young woman estranged from her family. Then another incomplete set of human bones turns up, and then another. When the trail takes a turn into a murky world of sex trafficking and illegal immigrants, Tobias starts to fear for his eco-warrior daughter Agnes.

    "A great traditional police procedural"
    Any additional comments?

    Don't get me wrong, I love blood, guts and violence in a story. However, Bogman is great, and unique, for the simple reason that it doesn't feature those aspects.

    Bogman, in short, is a great, traditional, police thriller that weaves its way, logically, to conclusion.

    I thought Tobias Lange was a well developed character and I really enjoyed his personal issues, his relationship with his daughter and interactions with the world around him.

    To top it all, I didn't know the outcome until the end. Just as it should be.

    A great listen/read for anybody looking for a good thriller. A side benefit for me is that I got to learn about Denmark in the process!

    "Good story, narration has problems"

    The story is OK as a murder mystery. There's an emphasis on procedure, with detailed exploration of dead-ends and alternative hypotheses. The Scandinavian theme has a certain amount of local color. Characterization is OK. The main problem is that the narration is somewhat muddy. It comes out as a sussurrating, staccato monotone that is difficult to follow, unless you are a dedicated fan paying very close attention and have a little or no environmental sounds, such as traffic, a/c, etc.. I had to stop and rewind more than once.

    "An interesting story."

    This is a good mystery,well written and well narrated. It's a good police procedural with interesting characters that you can relate to,either the parent/child dynamics or the various adult relationships.
    The subject is gritty and the author tell it concisely and with empathy for the victims and the people touched by the violence.
    I enjoyed this book a lot and look forward to more stories from this author.

    "Not even worth free"

    The story goes in ten different directions in the first hour of the book. I just had to turn off when the author gives the name of girlie to an abuse victim. ReallyReally? Secondly the narrator consistently incorrectly says the main character name. His narration is also clipped n harsh. Deleted from device

    "very impressed"

    I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher. This book was surprisingly a lot better than i thought it would be when i first started it. Also wasn't a huge fan of the narrator at first, but then he got better. The story was very good and pretty original. I liked that it was very detailed as far as telling you what was happening in the investigation of the murder. There was just enough forensic science and anthropology mixed in as well. very well worth your time to read this one.

    Story
    "An Exciting Danish Mystery For Fans of Nordic Noir"
    Where does Bogman rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Bogman was a very interesting thriller. It centers around a very interesting protagonist, and a mystery surrounding the discovery of human bones in a lake.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved the characters, and i'm a big fan of Nordic Noir in general anyway.


    Have you listened to any of Andrew B. Wehrlen’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I haven't listened to Andrew B. Wehrlen before, but I thought he did an excellent job on Bogman and really brought out the atmosphere of the thriller for me.


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

    I didn't have an extreme reaction to this book. It was an interesting thriller, that I really enjoyed listening to.


    Any additional comments?

    This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

    "Engrossing police procedural"

    As some reviewers have mentioned, this mystery starts a bit slowly as the author introduces us to the various police officers, suspects, etc. The pace quickens a great deal as Chief Inspector Tobias Lange starts making connections between a number of seemingly unrelated cases. Author Olufsen plays fairly with the reader, dropping plenty of hints along the way. If you listen carefully, you'll make the connections, too.

    Good mystery. Good narration. I'll keep an eye out for more by this author and narrator.

    "Bogman"
    Any additional comments?

    Overall an entertaining and enjoyable story. It was a little slow in pulling me in. It just wasn't holding my attention in the beginning. Once the story really got going then it held my complete attention and I listened until the end.

    Mystery, suspense, murder, sex trafficking and so much more. Plenty of twists to keep the story interesting. I was able to figure out who the murderer was before the reveal but that didn't make the story any less enjoyable.

    Andrew B. Werhlen does a fantastic job with the narration once again. Nice voice. Really good character voices. Great delivery. His narration pulls you into the story and makes it come to life. Always very enjoyable.

    ""Encircled by your love""
    Any additional comments?

    Human bones and a mummified hand are found in a lake by a golf course together with a few odd items, including an engraved silver bracelet. The remains are found to have been those of an unknown male, around early 20s in age and the jewellery promises to be the best way of identifying him. So begins a police hunt in Denmark and surrounding countries for answers to the murder. Meanwhile, there is also a violent sexual predator about, targeting female prostitutes.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book, which was well written, with fully rounded and believable characters, especially Tobias, the main protagonist, a detective separated from his wife and conflicted between his police work and his student daughter's involvement in ecological demonstrations. The reader is taken right inside his head as he shifts focus between work, family concern and hopes of ending his own loneliness. The police procedural is fascinating, too. But it did seem flawed by the earlier overlooking of something which, to me at least, seemed obvious but was barely mentioned.

    The narration by Andrew Wehrien was excellent, clearly read, well paced and the different characters nicely differentiated. And a pleasant voice. However, only four stars awarded as it felt as if the whole recording had been speaded up: easily resolved by slowing down to 0.75 on Audible, but initially irritating.

    I was gifted this book by the right's holder, via Audiobook Boom. My thanks for this. I had not previously read anything by R. I.Olufsen but will certainly watch out for other of his titles in the future.
