Joona Linna’s mystery complete

The third book of the original Joona Linna trilogy is a satisfying completion to what began in The Hypnotist. Minus the nail biting dread I experienced while listening to the first book, The Fire Witness is still essential listening for fans of Scandinavian noir. The narrator is alright— there is the problem of how to represent female voices without sounding cloying and passive, but I was able to place his faults in background and let the story unfold.
