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.
