Jeff Harding is the best narrator in the business and does a fantastic job with Connolly’s second Charlie Parker book. There is lots of humour as well as a gripping plot and intriguing element of spirituality. An excellent book wonderfully rendered in audio.

In the wake of a dying man’s apparent suicide, the skeleton of a young woman is discovered on a windswept hillside. Detective Hjalti Hentze suspects that it is the body of a Norwegian woman reported missing 40 years earlier, while a commune occupied the land, and whose death may be linked to the abduction and rape of a local Faroese girl. Meanwhile British DI Jan Reyna is pursuing his investigation into his mother’s suicide. But as he learns more about her final days, links between the two cases start to appear: a conspiracy of murder and abuse spanning four decades.

Ould’s Faroes novels are gripping and Matt Addis is the best reader possible. Fantastic stuff.
