Publisher's Summary

A promising young singer is found dead in a clearing in a forest, gruesomely murdered - her larynx cut out and an antique music box placed carefully atop her body, playing a mysterious lullaby that sounds familiar but that no one can quite place. Chief Inspector Odd Singsaker, of the Trondheim Police Department, still recovering from brain surgery, is called in to investigate.

Singsaker, now married to Felicia Stone, the American detective he met while tracking down a serial killer, fears the worst when another young girl, also known for her melodic singing voice, suddenly goes missing while on a walk with her dog one night. As the Trondheim police follow the trail of this deadly killer, it becomes clear that both cases are somehow connected to a centuries-old ballad called "The Golden Peace", written by a mysterious composer called Jon Blund in the 17th century. This lullaby promises the most sound, sweet sleep to the listener - and as time ticks by, the elusive killer seems as if he will stop at nothing to get his hands on this perfect lullaby.

Jorgen Brekke returns at the top of his game in this nonstop thrill ride through place - and time.

    Story
    "Good mystery, poor narration"

    The story is very good. Unfortunately the narrator has chosen to represent the Norwegian accents which should be found in this translation with British/Irish/even some Scottish accents. Very disconcerting.

    Story
    "18th century Trondheim"

    The story switches back and forth between 18th century and 21st-century Trondheim. It is a time machine tour of Scandinavia.

    Story
    "Mediocre"

    I wanted to like this book, but in the end it was rather mediocre... The characters and plot never really defined themselves nor was any depth of story accomplished... The characters seemed rather thin and one dimensional... The story itself kinda treaded water... There was some definite potential, but that potential was never realized... The narration was adequate, but at times flowed poorly... It was odd that a scandinavian story had so many accents from the British Isles... The brogues and lilts were odd, and the american accent used for the female lead sounded very bland, slightly robotic... Not bad enough to return, but awfully close...

    Story
    "Unusual Plot--Suspense"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    This was my first J Brekke book. It was well written, had an unusual plot and enough suspense. I just was never on the edge of my seat--thus the lower rating.
