This is a very interesting story involving all sorts of fascinating intrigue spanning 25 years. There's cold war spying, Stasi intrigue, and clever detectives who figure out who the Swedish collaborators are in an attack on the German embassy in Stockholm in 1975. However, the story is not well written and holds no surprise or suspense. Its basically just a simply account of what happened, not a clever who-done-it or suspenseful spy thriller, which a better author could have rendered. Also, I forgot what a lousy narrator Davies is. His characters sound like they're on quaaludes or are constipated. Why does he insist on those silly, inauthentic Swedish accents?! It completely detracts from the narration. I would not recommend this book, but I do think it could be a terrific movie if it were re-worked by a greater talent.

What could Leif GW Persson have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
the story was not good, could not get into it.
Would you be willing to try another one of Erik Davies’s performances?
Erik is great, he did all he could with the material.
Any additional comments?
I wasted my team listening to this book, kept thinking it would get better. Huge disappointment.
