Publisher's Summary

Four feet…from four different victims?
In Stavern around midsummer a severed left foot in a training shoe is washed up on the shore. Then another, and yet another. Altogether four left feet in the course of one week.
Police Inspector William Wisting has many years of murder experience behind him, but he has never examined evidence like this. Four feet…from four different victims?

“Jørn Lier Horst has once more written a well-founded and tense crime novel, with space for both the expected and the downright surprising.” (Aftenposten)

Good Norwegian Procedural

What a macabre beginning! Why are all these left feet showing up on Norway's shore? Steig Larsson's legacy continues as we get exposed to more Scandinavian mysteries and procedurals that are worthy of our listen. Horst has written a good book that includes lots of details about Norwegian life, criminal system, banking and other topics. I thought this police procedural was well paced and the reveal of information made sense. Kudos to Horst on his writing and well developed characters. I struggled with keeping up with the numerous names. Fortunately, the chapters are short in case you have to listen a second time.

I feel very neutral about the narrator. He did a fine job with the pronunciation of difficult language. He voice did not distract or enhance -- just neutral.

Whenever I listen to a Scandinavian book, I find myself spending lots of time on the internet researching vacations in Norway and Sweden. I will get there some day.

Tediously Slow

What disappointed you about Dregs?

Too long to get to any point. The main character was always tired. Poor policing skills. The plot was basically good, should have been an exciting read. If editors ever read the translation through I'd be surprised.

Would you ever listen to anything by Jørn Lier Horst again?

No. It's what I imagine hell is.

What didn’t you like about Saul Reichlin’s performance?

Slow boring voice. Inflection was poor. I will never listen to him narrating again

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

disapointmemt. Changing audio speeds to see if it helped

Any additional comments?

I want my credit back!

Entertaining and Interesting

If you could sum up Dregs in three words, what would they be?

Great detective story

What did you like best about this story?

I grew to like and enjoy the main character William Wisting and the build up of characters

What does Saul Reichlin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Saul, the master story teller. So clever. When he does a woman's voice, you forget you're listening to a man, and he does use a slightly different inflection for the Norwegian conversations between characters in the book. I love you Saul, you are a classic and your voice never fatigues.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Not really.

Any additional comments?

Enjoyable listen while doing the domestics on a weekend.
