They called her the Swedish Maiden: the beautiful young tourist who disappeared on a hot summer's day somewhere in North Oxford. Twelve months later, the case remained unsolved, pending further developments.

On holiday in Lyme Regis, Chief Inspector Morse is startled to read a tantalizing article in The Times about the missing woman - an article which lures him back to Wytham Woods near Oxford...and straight into the most extraordinary murder investigation of his career.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wendy | 2/6/2014

    " Tenth title in the Inspector Morse series set in Oxford England. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 J. J. Arias | 1/26/2014

    " I like how the mystery seemed relatively simple at first, involving only a few people, and then grew to become more complicated, involving many people. The portrayal of Morse also differs from the TV series: more success with women and drinks much more. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Edelhart Kempeneers | 1/8/2014

    " Ja, ik blijf een fan van de reeks. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Paul Secor | 1/7/2014

    " Typically fine Dexter. The solution to the mystery is overly complicated, but I read Colin Dexter's novels to read about Morse, not to find out whodunit. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Don Faatz | 1/5/2014

    " I have always enjoyed the Inspector Morse TV episodes of Masterpiece Mystery ... And decided it was time to experience the stories in their original form. This one was particularly good as there were two murders, not one and Morse develops two potential romantic relationships. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vickie | 1/3/2014

    " This was a very pleasant surprise. I want to find more of this series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Helaine | 1/2/2014

    " I loved the Morse series--wished Colin Dexter had not killed Morse off so soon. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rachel Hawes | 12/11/2013

    " The one in Bleinham Woods and the missing Swedish girl. The humpbacked surgeon leaves this mortal coil and Morse falls in love. Again "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 bookczuk | 11/16/2013

    " I'm a huge Coliin Dexter fan and read this (and all his works) a decade or so ago. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Peg | 11/3/2013

    " Best read of the series thus far. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karl | 9/24/2013

    " i preferred the dead of jericho. this wasn't as tight. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robyn | 9/17/2013

    " Good read if you like mysteries and Inspector Morse series on PBS "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Diane | 8/23/2013

    " Very confusing at first. Morse was looking for a girl that was supposedly murdered, but in the end she was the murderer. Very good, on my next in series now "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kieran | 7/3/2013

    " The best one of his books I have read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lauren Fidler | 4/14/2013

    " not quite what i expected. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jay | 2/5/2013

    " A disappointing entry in the Morse library, this book is slow and plods along without predicably but without must to inspire interest either. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David | 2/4/2013

    " I think Dexter is improving in the later Morse mysteries. Maybe it's just that he has been able to develop Morse more. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Janis | 12/6/2012

    " This is an Inspector Morse book. Having watched in on PBS's Mystery, well the series, not this particular story...I tought I'd give it a read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 RJ | 12/3/2012

    " My first Inspector Morse book. Quite enjoyable, especially Morse's restless vacation time in the first third of the book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Samantha | 9/23/2012

    " Enjoyed this one good story, kept you guessing. Liked the opportunity for Lewis to branch out on his own independent of Morse although he didn't find out much! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Scott | 7/7/2012

    " read this for the second time this fall. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Suzee | 6/15/2012

    " Classic Colin Dexter - been on my to-read list for a long time and worth the wait. Sometimes almost too much inside-the-characters' heads, but still a tru page-turner. PBS' Masterpiece Mystery Morse series does it justice too "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marfy | 11/7/2011

    " Haven't read all of Dexter's Morse series, but this one must be the best. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michael Tucker | 11/6/2011

    " With the different terminology, and his writing style I had a problem with the book at first but then I started liking (though still not sure if I understand) some of the characters and actually enjoyed it "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristin | 10/9/2011

    " Tip top mystery. Love the main character Morse, love the well-chosen quotes at the beginning of each chapter, love the dexterity with which he moves through different points of view. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gary Land | 8/6/2011

    " Another Inspector Morse mystery with nearly as many twists and turns as there are pages. The ending was a nearly complete surprise, although looking back there were hints here and there, though even Morse did not pick up on all of them until near the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Samantha | 6/18/2011

    " Enjoyed this one good story, kept you guessing. Liked the opportunity for Lewis to branch out on his own independent of Morse although he didn't find out much! "

    " The best one of his books I have read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lori | 11/26/2010

    " I love Morse! I can't get enough although I like the shows better. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Helaine | 11/10/2010

    " I loved the Morse series--wished Colin Dexter had not killed Morse off so soon. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Trawets | 9/5/2010

    " Colin Dexter gives us another great Chief Inspector Morse crime story, full of twists and turns and red herrings. Sometimes though Morse is just a little too clever for me, but flawed enough to redeem himself. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wendy | 6/28/2010

    " Tenth title in the Inspector Morse series set in Oxford England. "

    " Very enjoyable Summer reading, not great literature, but not trash either. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Scott | 1/4/2009

    " read this for the second time this fall. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christopher | 12/23/2008

    " Great read. particularly if you're a fan of:

    pints
    the English woods
    letters
    verses
    quotes
    and lovable irascibility

    "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vickie | 2/17/2008

    " This was a very pleasant surprise. I want to find more of this series. "
