It'd be great if there was a short pause between the chapters, that would defintely make for an easier understanding.
I love Camilla Lackberg books but the audio version of the latest is a bit frustrating.
Firstly the narrator gets the authors name wrong ('Camilla Lackberry', more than once), he messed up pronouns of characters, and says a few words incorrectly.
Also the editing is clearly a rush job & there are hardly any pauses when scenes change so it's confusing.
Lastly I don't know if it is the translation or if Camilla Lackberg is not up to par for this book, but the writing, phrases used & descriptions seem a bit lazy (the same sentence used within pages of each other).
The story itself is enjoyable but these annoying issues have really spoiled this for me.

Any additional comments?
I agree with the review from LMV. I have listened to all the previous books in the series and enjoyed them. For this one the translation is weak and with Robin Bowerman's mellifluous tone it made the whole experience like listening to an Enid Blyton Famous Five book. The editing too was clearly rushed with hardly a breath taken by Robin Bowerman between scenes so that you lose track of where and when you are in the story. However, the storyline was intriguing if a little far fetched at the end.
