    Story

    So pleased to see book 4 in the series as I thoroughly enjoyed the first 3. Didn't disappoint! Another great book, and pleased to see the same narrator as he really helped me visualise the characters and the settings. Didn't want them to end and really got into the story- found myself really looking forward to the commute to work!

    Hoping there will be more......

    Suspenseful, pause-resisting crime writing at its gripping best featuring DCI Andy Gilchrist and set in St Andrews, Scotland. Will DCI Andy Gilchrist end up like the others - dead, beheaded on a beach? It's the middle of winter in St Andrews when a young woman's half-naked body is found on Fife's Coastal Path, frozen and with remnants of a rope manacle around her wrist.... DCI Andy Gilchrist is given the case.

    Well, what can I say, I really enjoyed my first Wallander listen! I moved onto this as I finished the Nesbo Harry Hole books as I really love listening to Sean Barrett's narration and I wasn't disappointed! Won't give away any of the book but has some good twists to keep you listening! Have already got book 8 and just about to start listening. Haven't started these in order as the previous reviews drew me to this one and don't think I've missed too much of the history?

    Great listen!

    It is Midsummer's Eve. Three young friends meet in a wood to act out an elaborate masque. But, unknown to them, they are being watched. Each is killed by a single bullet. Soon afterwards, one of Inspector Wallander's colleagues is found murdered. Is this the same killer, and what could the connection be? In this investigation, Wallander is always, tantalisingly, one step behind.

    I bought the third book in a promotion as a tester and actually was surprised that I really enjoyed it. I wasn't sure at first but like the female aspect of the lead character and went on to buy the other 4 in the series. As usual for me I started these out of order with book 3 first but going back and starting at the beginning and reading the set meant I got to learn the history behind the characters.

    Great books, couldn't make myself stop listening at points and enjoyed them all.

    Seven years ago Martin Chadwick set fire to a Manchester pub, not knowing a teenager was sleeping inside. Chadwick's release from prison is imminent, with journalists gearing up for a good old-fashioned media lynching. With the victim's father telling the papers he is out for revenge, DS Jessica Daniel is left to keep an eye on Chadwick and his fiery 18-year-old son. If that's not enough to keep her occupied, a private investigator is doing a fine job sticking his oar in.

    I was really looking forward to this book and wasn't disappointed...a good solid storyline and a bit more in depth than the other Olsen books I've read. The regular characters come to life more than ever, and the other characters are dark and menacing. I Really didn't. want this book to end...Stephen Pacey does a great job of the narration...thoroughly recommended!

  • "Best Department Q yet!"

    7 of 7 helpful votes

    The best in the Department Q series so far. Not as horrific as the first novel and not as bloated as the second installment. A good mix between humour and tension as we revisit the quirky characters of the Department Q team, some of whom themselves are shrouded in mystery. An old message, written in blood, is found in a bottle floating off the coast of Scotland. Scottish forensics discovers the message is in Danish and the bottle is sent to the Copenhagen Police, where it lands on the large pile of cold cases languishing in Department Q. While the reader knows the back story of the message and that the killer is still at large, the tension builds as the Department Q team slowly piece the story surrounding the message together. The listener waits with abated breath for the team to connect the dots and make the breakthrough and when it happens the pace is taken up a notch with a very tense race against time. An excellent third installment to a very enjoyable series. As always Steven Pacey's narration is superb. I must have made quite a spectacle of myself in traffic, jumping up and down in the car, shouting and waving my fists at the radio! Loved listening to this one.
