Why was this narrated with an American accent? It was a pre-WW2 novel but sounded like an American gangster story.

Good plot but ...

Bring back the narrator who did the previous Department Q books this didn't quite get the tone.

Finally got around to reading this and rather wished I hadn't. Chapter 3 and so far nothing has happened except pushing snow off a barn roof having collected some firewood and sometime many years later wandering around Bangalore. Not recommended and if Audible is reading this can I have my credit back please.

Pretty damn good. Read the Winds of War first to get the book in context.

A bit far fetched and the plot was entirely predictable. Easy listening but not as good as some of this authors work.

Nesbo at his best-again!

A gripping story brilliantly narrated by Sean Barrett. Norway not Sweden this time. Who is the Mole? Just when you think you've worked it out ...!

Difficult to say "Wow" in fifteen words. Stunning story line that would leave the reader suspended for a chapter before revealing a bit more of the plot. As ever Sean Barrett is a wonderful narrator.

An enthralling story brilliantly narrated by Daniel Weyman. If it was a book I wouldn't have been able to put it down

A slow and confusing start but then it becomes addictive. Reccomended if you can get through the first few chapters.

Jo Nesbo and Sean Barrett at their best. Harry Hole is human, vulnerable and as perceptive as ever.
