Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Wyma | 2/20/2014

    " The killer is as intriguing as the Inspector in this small-town mystery where although the story unravels predictably, the characters maintain interest. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kieran | 2/13/2014

    " Pretty good, not as good as his others. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Peggy | 2/3/2014

    " A murder mystery written by a Scandinavian author, featuring a Dutch detective. It was interesting, but predictable, and though I found it interesting to read a story set in the Netherlands (because I lived there for a few years), it didn't contain the level of suspense that would earn a higher rating. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen | 2/2/2014

    " as usual, I love those Swedish mysteries. plus, I like the author's photo on the book jacket. "

    " Woman stalks men as revenge for her mother. Pretty good. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linny | 1/5/2014

    " Swedish detective Van Veeteren = woman seeking revenge for death of mother. Can't remember much, seemed good. Why men shot in heart and below belt? obvious to reader though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shandyw | 12/26/2013

    " Yep, a good read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pamela | 3/26/2013

    " This was better than the previous which was better than the two before that. Nice to see an author improve over time rather than deteriorate! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Prakash Loungani | 12/12/2012

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jacquelinelborda | 3/6/2012

    " I like the way Nesser develops his characters and the plot. It is a good translation. I was very disappointed with the ending. "

    " Interesting premise, but boring characters. "
