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!

English language detective drama set in Scandinav

Good police/detective story involving one old and one new mystery, and two different police units. A bit confusing and I had to replay some of the audiobook to clear up some confusion. . I had to set the narration speed at 75% because sometimes the story was read in a very fast pace. The story line was good and well thought out and the characters well developed, especially Tobias whose OCD tendencies make him very endearing. No other books on Amazon by this author so maybe this is his first book. I hope to see more of his work in the future.

Very good narrator.

I enjoyed the story but the 'twist' was relatively obvious from fairly early on. I am an avid reader/listener to this genre so I expect I am tuned in to spotting the culprit.

"Encircled by your love"

Any additional comments?

Human bones and a mummified hand are found in a lake by a golf course together with a few odd items, including an engraved silver bracelet. The remains are found to have been those of an unknown male, around early 20s in age and the jewellery promises to be the best way of identifying him. So begins a police hunt in Denmark and surrounding countries for answers to the murder. Meanwhile, there is also a violent sexual predator about, targeting female prostitutes.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, which was well written, with fully rounded and believable characters, especially Tobias, the main protagonist, a detective separated from his wife and conflicted between his police work and his student daughter's involvement in ecological demonstrations. The reader is taken right inside his head as he shifts focus between work, family concern and hopes of ending his own loneliness. The police procedural is fascinating, too. But it did seem flawed by the earlier overlooking of something which, to me at least, seemed obvious but was barely mentioned.

The narration by Andrew Wehrien was excellent, clearly read, well paced and the different characters nicely differentiated. And a pleasant voice. However, only four stars awarded as it felt as if the whole recording had been speaded up: easily resolved by slowing down to 0.75 on Audible, but initially irritating.

I was gifted this book by the right's holder, via Audiobook Boom. My thanks for this. I had not previously read anything by R. I.Olufsen but will certainly watch out for other of his titles in the future.
