This was a fantastic listen, a bit sarcastic and with some irony but also different.

A book that achieves the novel scenario of allowing a man to investigate his own murder without any supernatural chicanery doesn't sound like one to be taken lightly. However The Man Who Died really can't be taken that seriously either. The disclaimer at the start of the book probably guides you towards the correct approach to this one.
For me this book was a really light ride. Plenty of wry smiles, I very much warmed to Jaako from the start. A decent guy in a ridiculous situation. There aren't too many laugh out loud moments but I was pleasantly charmed by the whole thing from early on and it's an intriguingly original story.
The narration by David Hackston feels to hit a lot of the right notes even if maybe it is a little dry in terms of delivery.
So, possibly a niche book but if you fancy something a little different in your Scandinavian noir then this tale set in the murky world of mushroom entrepreneurs is well worth a try.
