Having read the other 3 Department Q books I was really waiting for this one and I wasn't disappointed it was just as good as the other 3.

The same well thought out plot the same dry wit.. the same excellent narration by Steven Pacey but I'm going to be picky here... having your main characters begin the book with a cold which brings with it a dodgy tummy o.o and lasts the entire book may work in print but as an audio-book not so much!

Absolutely love Jussi Adler Olsen

Would you listen to Guilt again? Why?

I listen to all the series again which very rarely happens with me.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?


Any additional comments?

This author is wonderful. Probably my favourite crime writer at present. I thoroughly enjoy the characters, the story lines and whilst sometimes slightly unbelievable the entertainment value and narration make up for it. I think Steven Pacey is an excellent narrator and rate him as one of the best
