The narrator seems to have thought it appropriate to attribute Scottish (and sporadically Irish) accents to Norwegian characters. The plot had too many diversions from quite an obvious solution. Not Holt's best.
I couldn't get beyond the first couple of chapters as the narrator makes a horrible incomprehensible mess of the norwegian names and places.
I have since read the book in norwegian and the story is fantastic, which makes it even more of a shame that the narration is so bad.
To grasp the character development and the often complex storyline one must really concentrate. For a listener like me it has kept me awake all night as I become so absorbed in the story I have to reach the end!,
A great story where the author does net tie up all the ends, she leaves some to the imagination of the reader/listener.
