Nordic noir

dark theme - plot was gripping

I have listened to all the books on the series up to buried (book5).

in general the plots are good, usually a race to catch a criminal(s) in time on cases.

I'm not sure if it's because the books lost some vibrancy in translation but the characters can feel quite one dimensional and sometimes it's hard to imagine anyone behaving quite like them in real life, and in other ways they are quite hackneyed caricatures, the divorced smoking grumpy detective who clashes with his superiors is hardly revolutionary.

however the plots and the baddies in the books are great and I've enjoyed listening.

if you're not sure you're going to like them, I think you probably won't, but if you like the killing and steig Larsson you probably will.

excellent

Well written, good story, great narrator. really enjoyed this book.

exciting, always wanted to find out exactly what the truth of the matter was - as set up in the first chapter right until the end.

narrator was the best of any audible book so far for me, really made the difference
