In for the long haul
My favourite story and love the book. This unabridged version is a long term commitment. Narrator good in the male voices but weaker on the female. A separate actress for these would have helped.

- Narrated by: Saul Reichlin
- Length: 7 hrs and 57 mins
A man is found murdered in his Reykjavik flat. There are no obvious clues apart from a cryptic note left on the body and a photograph of a young girl's grave. Delving into the dead man's life Detective Erlendur discovers that 40 years ago he was accused of an appalling crime, but never convicted. Had his past come back to haunt him? As Erlendur struggles to build a relationship with his unhappy daughter, his investigation takes him to Iceland's Genetic Research Centre, where he uncovers disturbing secrets that are even darker than the murder of an old man.
Would definitely benefit from a different narrator

Sounded like it was a reading for Horrid Henry
What would have made Jar City better?
Different narrator more suited to the nature of the book.
Would you ever listen to anything by Arnaldur Indridason again?
Not with same narrator.
Would you be willing to try another one of Saul Reichlin’s performances?
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Any additional comments?
Can't go on with it.... narrator tone and voices all wrong
