Publisher's Summary

On a July afternoon, the body of a young woman is dredged from Sweden's beautiful Lake Vättern. Three months later, all that Police Inspector Martin Beck knows is that her name is Roseanna, that she came from Lincoln, Nebraska, and that she could have been strangled by any one of 85 people.
As the melancholic Beck narrows down the list of likely suspects, he is drawn increasingly to the enigma of the victim, a free-spirited traveller with a penchant for the casual sexual encounter, and to the psychopathology of a murderer with a distinctive - indeed, terrifying - sense of propriety.
With its authentically rendered settings, vividly realized characters, and command over the intricately interwoven details of police detection, Roseanna is a masterpiece of suspense and sadness.

Always listen to the sample!

I really should have used the sample arrow: I found Tom Weiner's delivery irritating I'm afraid, which overcame any interest in the characters. or plot. I hit the delete button and am just grateful that I only bought the first Martin Beck novel, rather than the whole set.

This is the first disappointing Audible purchase but I did learn a lesson.

may be a good book but................

The reader of this book makes it completely unnlistenable. Its an awful voice, much to fast and therefore very difficult to follow, and as the voice and accent prevent you wanting to. I struggled but couldn't cope for more than 10 minutes.
