This had the makings of a good read/listen but was spoiled by being over padded with tedious detail and too much repetition.
It was an unlikely tale with an unsympathetic and irritating central character.
The narration was good.
The book was simply a re working of other more successful Scandi novels. This is no Stieg Larson or Karin Fossum. Buyer beware.

Loved the storyline. Narrator made different characters realistic. Held my attention to the very end.

Interesting characters, clean dialogue, intriguing story. A little disjointed at times but overall, a very enjoyable experience.

What would have made I'm Travelling Alone better?
The story is compelling and in some places well researched. The hacker bits for instance. But the journalists that decide not to call the cops?! Really? And they behave like morons! Journalists that listen to the police scanner but don't know that they should call the cops instead of picking a girl to die?! <br/><br/>So many inconsistencies. A detective who has been abusing alcohol and pills for months on end just goes back to work like nothing happened? No shakes, no withdrawal?
What could Samuel Bjork have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
The interactions between the characters are not funny. The narrator tried, she really tried to make it funny, but the characters all had the sense of humour of teenagers. And in some places, the intellect of teenagers as well. The journalists. I can't get over the journalists. It's just too much.
Any additional comments?
It's started well and then went downhill fast and then unbelievably, got worse.
