A slow burner

A tale that unravels slowly but is worth sticking with. The narration will not be to everyone's taste, quite monotonous but again you forget about it once you get wrapped up in the story. A decent audiobook but not a patch on Jussi Adler Olsen's Department Q books.

Duplication of 1st book in intercrime series!!!!!!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Not if he/she has already read Misterioso as it is the same book!!!

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Blinded Man?

The explanation of the history of the song Misterioso.

How could the performance have been better?

If the reader had used several different voices for the different characters. He makes no effort to sound like a woman for the female roles. Most of the time he uses the same 'voice' — no different accents, no higher or lower. At times I thought it was one character talking to himself — even when it was a woman speaking!!

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No. It was well written. Had a good plot. Some characters were developed, but not all the important ones.

Any additional comments?

This is the same book as "Misterioso: Intercrime, Book 1", only it is 4 minutes shorter. It is the same story read by the same reader, just released two years later. Was a waste of a credit. I will ask if I can get it back!!!
