Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
This is a thoroughly entertaining scandi-crime tale. Very much in the Jo Nesbo mould (without the serial killers and with a more politically related storyline). There are some implausabilities every now and again but overall it is a rollicking and highly enjoyable story. Sean Barrett is one of my favourite narrators and he does another great job to boot.

Joona Linna investigates an illegal arms dealer after a corrupt government official commits suicide to avoid facing his worst nightmare. An incriminating photograph of an illegal arms deal is discovered and Joona Linna decides to investigate. A fantastic listen and read. Lars Kepler write brilliantly together and Sean Barrett gives an excellent performance as the narrator.
If you're looking for a book that's not long on character studies but is really rich in sheer thrills and action, then this could be the one for you. I was totally gripped by this novel from 'take-off to landing' and like all good thrillers, I just couldn't leave it alone! I could well imagine that the author(s) had the cinema in mind when they put this one together and it would make the transfer well I think. Central character Detective Joona Linna (a very sober Harry Hole type) is fascinating and potentially he could be compelling. Would just love to know more about him.....sometimes though you just can't have it all in one go, in one book. Sean Barrett is just SUPERB as always!

What made the experience of listening to The Nightmare the most enjoyable?
I enjoyed the first book in the series, but the wonderful narration of Sean Barrett elevates the book to another level, it is a good well written book with plenty of twists and turns
Who was your favorite character and why?
Apart from the main character there is not a great of character development, but there are some interesting characters that I hope will be developed in other books in the series.
Have you listened to any of Sean Barrett’s other performances? How does this one compare?
Great as always. He has made a good book even better.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Any additional comments?
If you like Harry Hole you will like this one
