Well written with a good plot and great narrater. All those who like detective mysteries this book is for you. I enjoyed the listen from begining to end.

This is very well read. I especially like the way that Sean Barrett switches to a Swedish accent when Wallander and his colleagues are speaking in English to their Latvian counterparts.
But, I have a niggle. This is apparently a transfer from an original "Book-on-tape" as every 30 minutes or so you get an "End of Side X -pause- Side X+1" break lasting what seems like 15 seconds or so, which is invariably in the middle of a chapter, breaking the flow. In some cases there's a Chapter break within a few minutes which is even more galling. Please can someone re-master this to remove these breaks?

I really thought this second Wallander book was awful. I have listened to more than 40 books and this is in my top 5 books of the worst books I've listened too. It was so unrealistic, the fact that Wallander would put his life in danger so many times in going to another country on a case that really did not have a great storyline. I also did not like the fact that this story was previously on tape and has been put on audible without tidying up the annoying breaks in the story saying, end of side one, then saying after a pause, saying side two and so

Great story as expected by Henning Mankell, and Sean Barrett brings Wallender alive again as the three dimensional nuanced character we love. Thanks to both author and narrator for a thoroughly enjoyable listening experience.
