All over the place

I had a hard time keeping focused for this book and kept losing interest. The story wasn't very credible or interesting.

Entertaining

Stumbled onto this series and was entertained. The only caveat is her Scottish cohort, by book 5 his character should have gotten a clue.

I like the series

Not as bleak as the usual Swedish noir, but is dangerously close to slipping into the bane of most series...soap opera type melodrama. Her character development is good and I find myself enjoying the evolution of certain characters.

Overall a good series seven books in so far.

Doc is a pretty cool guy

What a character, the story and narrator were fun and enjoyable listen. Doc is quite the guy to have around. The nerdier version of Jack Reacher?

Is it just me

or is the religious voice starting to become more strident? While I still enjoyed this book, and continue to enjoy the development of characters, I felt almost as if I were being preached at. I have read non-secular works with less religious undertone.

Binge listening

I am really enjoying this series. Interesting characters and yes a little dated, but so is the Edmund Dantès, doesn't mean he isn't still outrageously entertaining. No, I am not really comparing the Count of Monte Cristo with The Last Refuge, or am I...

Seriously, just a good mystery without being too serious, just the right amount of quirky.

I really enjoy Tony Parsons

The story was a little grim, okay okay, a lot grim, but great style.

While one might say why save these people, another might say where do we draw the line on who should be saved.

I am not saying I have the answers, Parson's just makes it clear there are a lot of questions.

Different

A very unique perspective. I enjoyed the story and the narrator. Amateur detectives usually devolve into extreme caricatures, not so in this case. This was not a jam packed thriller, but more a slow build with a natural and inevitable end.

Good story

Although the end was pretty much revealed from the beginning, I like this story very much. Grimes has a sense of melancholy that I find so enchanting.

I often find myself reading an Editor's summary and thinking, okay this could be good, but what the summary usually fails to inform the reader of is tone.

Grimes has a light hand with humor, a little heavy with symbolism, and just right with melancholy.

Guilty pleasure

For what it is worth, these are still good procedural books. A little over the top fantasy, but what the heck. Always a quick listen that doesn't require in depth mental digestion. I love a good steak, but sometimes I just want a good cheeseburger.
