Publisher's Summary

When a mummified foot, a pile of bones, and a split skull are discovered in a Danish bog, is it a case for the police or archaeologists? It becomes a case for chief inspector Tobias Lange when it is confirmed the remains are those of a young male, early twenties, beaten to death with a blunt instrument about two decades earlier.
Tobias finds himself on the trail of eco-warriors, Sami protesters safeguarding reindeer rights in Lapland, and a disaffected young woman estranged from her family. Then another incomplete set of human bones turns up, and then another. When the trail takes a turn into a murky world of sex trafficking and illegal immigrants, Tobias starts to fear for his eco-warrior daughter Agnes.

A great traditional police procedural

Any additional comments?

Don't get me wrong, I love blood, guts and violence in a story. However, Bogman is great, and unique, for the simple reason that it doesn't feature those aspects.

Bogman, in short, is a great, traditional, police thriller that weaves its way, logically, to conclusion.

I thought Tobias Lange was a well developed character and I really enjoyed his personal issues, his relationship with his daughter and interactions with the world around him.

To top it all, I didn't know the outcome until the end. Just as it should be.

A great listen/read for anybody looking for a good thriller. A side benefit for me is that I got to learn about Denmark in the process!

Good story, narration has problems

The story is OK as a murder mystery. There's an emphasis on procedure, with detailed exploration of dead-ends and alternative hypotheses. The Scandinavian theme has a certain amount of local color. Characterization is OK. The main problem is that the narration is somewhat muddy. It comes out as a sussurrating, staccato monotone that is difficult to follow, unless you are a dedicated fan paying very close attention and have a little or no environmental sounds, such as traffic, a/c, etc.. I had to stop and rewind more than once.
