Depressingly gruesome

Would you try another book written by Jo Nesbo or narrated by Sean Barrett?

Not so much a thriller as a torrid trawl through unimaginably bleak characters and horrifically dark deeds. No more Jo Nesbo for me.

What about Sean Barrett’s performance did you like?

The only good thing about this book is the reading. Even Sean Barrett cannot save what is in my view a repellent story.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment. Revulsion.

Any additional comments?

It is turgid going. I gave up after a few chapters; unpleasant horror and not an intriguing crime story. Unrelenting gloom and misogyny, this is not a thriller but a catalogue of vile behaviours; not a good listen in any way. It is so gruesome I am surprised it is not accompanied by some sort of warning as to the content. I would give it no stars for story or overall rating if I could, even though the reading is good.
