What did you like most about Buried?
A crime thriller that made me laugh. a rare gem indeed.
Have you listened to any of Steven Pacey’s other performances? How does this one compare?
His narration for the different characters is always very clear and believable.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
I could have happily listened from start to finish, and always found it very easy to pick up from where I last finished.
Any additional comments?
Cannot wait for the next book.

I’ve listened to the first two books in the series and think your need to listen to at least book 1 first to get the most out of this fifth book, the early part of which is confusing enough as seemingly unconnected narrative threads take a long time to make sense. After a slow start the momentum of the novel builds into an unrelenting series of jeopardy scenes involving the young illegal immigrant, Marco, that went on a bit too long and made me hope for some variation in tone. I’d prefer less inter-personal sarcasm and quarrelling among the policemen and women who are becoming caricatures of irritable unpleasantness. My favourite character is Assad, the enigmatic dogsbody to Inspector Carl Morck, whose backstory from Iraq is slowly emerging.
Despite my criticisms it is a gripping thriller excellently narrated by Steven Pacy.

Would you try another book from Jussi Adler-Olsen and/or Steven Pacey?
This book has ALREADY been offered under the title The Marco Effect. The story is great, and I love this author. So I was very excited to see a new title!! But sadly, it is new in title alone. I was so disappointed. If you haven't heard book 5, then definitely get this. But if you're an Adler-Olsen fan just check that you haven't already purchased book 5. (This isn't the first time I've run into this so of thing with audio books.)

Any additional comments?
This book is the same book as Marco Effect. Different name different narrator. It was interesting to see how the two narrator portrayed the characters. I downloaded this in error thinking that audible made a typo with it listed also being book fiveof dept Q. I could have returned it but did not. I am a fan of Dept Q. Very unique group of investigators. Assad and his camel colloquialisms make me laugh out loud.
