The unabridged, digital audiobook edition of Jussi Adler-Olsen’s Mercy, Scandinavia’s new bestselling crime phenomenon. Read by the actor Steven Pacey. At first the prisoner scratches at the walls until her fingers bleed. But there is no escaping the room. With no way of measuring time, her days, weeks, months go unrecorded. She vows not to go mad. She will not give her captors the satisfaction.

Danish Noire superbly read by Steven Pacey

Overall
5 out of 5 stars

One of the best audibooks I've heard. Its a Danish detective novel with a political sub-plot - similar to the brilliant "The Killing" Danish TV series.



Read superbly by Steven Pacey - one of my favourite narrators. In fact I originally chose this book mainly due to his excellent narration of the marvelous Joe Abercrombie books which I've recently finished.



So glad I did. Just downloaded the sequel - for the continuing story of Dept Q..

This is one of the best audio visual experiences I have ever had - and there's no visual! It is priceless. I urge you to experience this if you have any inclination towards the dystopian genre. The narration is the best I've heard - I can almost image I'm there. The plot is gripping, the writing evocative - very reminiscent of Ray Bradbury. I listened in the car on my daily commute and regularly sat outside my destination waiting for a section to complete. Unmissable. I only hope that the brilliant Scott Brick is lined up to narrate the two remaining books in the trilogy which are due for release in July this year and 2014 respectively. I can't wait.
