I reviewed the other book by Helene Tursten on Audible and gave the translation a bit of a panning along with the reader but it was still a good listen.
In this latest outing for Irene Huss I am happy to report that Suzanne Toren is much improved over the previous reading. Not a top class performance but much more bearable than before. Sadly the dodgy translation remains which seems to be a bit of a feature of the newer (in English) Nordic Noir novels; Hakan Nesser suffers the same fate. A rush to translate more books perhaps?
Anyway the story is centred around a group of people who made a lot of money in the dotcom bubble of 1997 to 2000 and the revenge wrought on them some years later. The plot is good with plenty of twists leading to a satisfying ending with an actual arrest (rather than a cop out death of the primary suspect).
Overall a good listen worth your time if you are looking for something new in scandinavian crime fiction.
