Publisher's Summary

The downloadable, digital audiobook edition of Jussi Adler-Olsen’s sensational new thriller, read by the actor Steven Pacey.

Two boys, brothers, wake tied and bound in a boathouse by the sea. Their kidnapper has gone, but soon he will return. Their bonds are inescapable.

But there is a bottle and tar to seal it. Paper and a splinter for writing; blood for ink. A message begging for help.

In Copenhagen’s cold cases division Carl Morck has received a bottle. It holds an old and decayed message, written in blood. It is a cry for help from two boys. Is it real? Who are they and why weren’t they reported missing? Can they possibly still be alive?

a master story teller

If you could sum up Redemption in three words, what would they be?

A compulsive read

Any additional comments?

This is the third book and the series gets better every time. <br/>The plots are well thought out and it is difficult to guess what is going to happen. Really original stuff.

Great story

Really really great plot. Would make a brilliant film. Steven Pacey is a superb narrator. I've heard him do the Susan hill books too. Wish he could do the Hanging Girl book

Great Cop story with pace and humour

Have read the First 2 books and really enjoyed the characters and wit. I found myself a little disappointed at the start and it took a short while to get back in to the team. Having said the the story grew on me quickly and held my attention well. The humour is more pronounced in this novel and I really enjoyed that.
Well worth a listen and very well read

Good listening - excellent narrator :-)

Thoroughly enjoyed this book, which was made all the more enjoyable by the narrator, Steven Pacey. For me, the narrator is as important as the book and Steven Pacey does an excellent job. It was a very good plot, well woven together although I did feel that sometimes the narrative of some the characters was a little over descriptive but this may have been necessary?? I have read the previous 2 books in the series and do think it's better to read them in order but only because I like hearing about the characters and how their roles have developed in Dept Q. I shall definitely be reading the next in the series.
