Critic Reviews

"John Lee at his best is about as good as it gets in audiobook narration. Jo Nesbø in top form is a showstopper, and when they're together, perfectly in sync as here, you may need a Valium to get through the final chapters.... Bravo to both of them for this thrill ride." ( AudioFile)

Normally, I love Jo Nesbo.

This book was WAY off the mark for me. It was far too gruesome, disjointed, and confusing. I'm bored with John Lee's narration. If you've never listened to Harry Hole novel, don't start with this one. It's not typical of the author. There are many others that are better. JMHO

Tedious, Unoriginal and Poorly Narrated

I am late to the Harry Hole party but was enticed by the hype and history of the series. Well, perhaps this wasn't the book to start with, but I am 11 hours into it and am reluctantly bailing out. In part this is owing to the reader, John Lee. I am sure Mr Lee is a nice guy but he is the worst reader I have ever encountered in my many dozens of Audible books. He has the most annoying artificial way of intoning his words that makes any character's voice sound like a superficial twit. No one IRL talks like his characters. Sadly, I had previously encountered his narration and had the same reaction, but had forgotten his name. The minute I opened this book and heard him again I cringed. Really, he is terrible. Nevertheless, if the story ever got moving along I might have overlooked the problematic reading, but it just drags and drags. Plus it's nothing original - just the old "ace detective bedeviled by an old nemesis" story. Adding some iron teeth (seriously?) to the villain can't salvage it. Perhaps the next nine hours might have turned it around, but life is too short for me to slog through and find out. I'm done.
