“Mark Bramhall follows his success with Kepler’s THE HYPNOTIST to envelop listeners in another thriller featuring detective Joona Linna…Bramhall is a maestro of the musical cadences of endless Swedish proper names and locations. The unfamiliar words, definite tongue-twisting challenges, are rendered perfectly, or at least perfectly believably to American ears. Bramhall orchestrates the highs and lows of both inflection and emotion, as well as tenderness and error. He carefully sorts dozens of characters with simple vocal and emotional color, including the teams of police officers. The challenges of this narration are all met – brilliantly.” AudioFile Magazine, AudioFile Earphones Award Winner
“This is a crime fiction with real depth, multifaceted characters and a relentless, pounding pace.” – BookPage
“Narrator Mark Bramhall smoothly handles tongue-twisting Nordic names, and sets a pace that allows the listener to properly process the often-perplexing events without diminishing their chilling effect.” – Publishers Weekly --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
From the first page to the very last this book is intriging- page by page the plot deepens.
