Publisher's Summary

Less than six months after taking office, the Norwegian Prime Minister is found dead. She has been shot in the head. But was it a politically motivated assassination or personal revenge?
The death shakes the country to its core. The hunt for her killer is complicated, intense and gruelling. Hanne Wilhelmsen must contain the scandal before a private tragedy becomes a public outrage, in what will become the most sensitive case of her career...
This is a story of lies, intrigue and politics. The Lion's Mouth questions who holds the power in Norway, and how far they will go to use it.

odd narration

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.

Horrible pronunciation

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.

Concentration

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.
