Publisher's Summary

Sweden's elite are under attack.Two rich and powerful men have been murdered, and in the face of mounting panic - and media hysteria - a task force has been created to catch the killer.To his surprise, Detective Paul Hjelm, currently under investigation for misconduct after shooting a man who took the staff of an immigration office hostage, is summoned to join the new team.

But the killer has left no clues, even removing the bullets from the crime scenes, and Hjelm and his new teammates face a daunting challenge if they are to uncover the connection between the victims and catch the murderer before he kills again.

Published in the USA as Misterioso.

Duplication of 1st book in intercrime series!!!!!!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Not if he/she has already read Misterioso as it is the same book!!!

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Blinded Man?

The explanation of the history of the song Misterioso.

How could the performance have been better?

If the reader had used several different voices for the different characters. He makes no effort to sound like a woman for the female roles. Most of the time he uses the same 'voice' — no different accents, no higher or lower. At times I thought it was one character talking to himself — even when it was a woman speaking!!

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

No. It was well written. Had a good plot. Some characters were developed, but not all the important ones.

Any additional comments?

This is the same book as "Misterioso: Intercrime, Book 1", only it is 4 minutes shorter. It is the same story read by the same reader, just released two years later. Was a waste of a credit. I will ask if I can get it back!!!

A slow burner

A tale that unravels slowly but is worth sticking with. The narration will not be to everyone's taste, quite monotonous but again you forget about it once you get wrapped up in the story. A decent audiobook but not a patch on Jussi Adler Olsen's Department Q books.

Err SAME BOOK AS MISTERIOSO ???

What would have made The Blinded Man better?

If it hadn't been identical to Misteriosos!

Has The Blinded Man put you off other books in this genre?

No especially as it is remarkably similar to Misterioso!

What didn’t you like about John Lee’s performance?

It was identical word for word with his same narration of the Misterioso.

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Yes it had. It was identical to the Misterioso

Any additional comments?

Anyway take it from me, If you enjoyed Misterioso you'll enjoy this !<br/><br/>Why are audible selling the same book twice under two titles, read by same narrator. <br/><br/>Is it just me but sometimes I just try a new author and then buy more if I like them. I don't often explore the literary history or background of the author. I'm really interested in the story I suppose not the author. <br/><br/>Anyway having listened to Misterioso, being book one of this Arne Darl series which I liked, I thought I'd try The Blinded Man. <br/><br/>Umm two identical recordings, different images different name, even different blurb. Have I missed something? Is it actually possible to tell from the website that these are the same? <br/><br/>
