I have read this book in Russian, watch the Russian movie, and now listened to it in English. I am very impressed with the translation, and with the reading as well.
For those who is in doubt: This book, called ?Azazel? in Russian, starts the series of wonderfully written detective stories taking place in Russia sometime after Anna Korenina and before the Revolution. The style is superb, the plot is intriguing; this book (and the series that followed) is one of the best things that happened to the contemporary Russian literature.
Currently, only two books of this series are translated into English (as far as I know): the Winter Queen and Murder on the Leviathan.

Really enjoyed the humor in this book. The protagonist is such an innocent young man. The whole book has a "tongue in cheek" tone to it. I also enjoyed the narrator's reading of the book. My only slight complaint is that "the answer" to the mystery is rather obvious. But that didn't really detract from my enjoyment of the book.
