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?
