Publisher's Summary

When a British heir hunter fails to return home after a trip to Malmö, Inspector Anita Sundström doesn't want to get entangled in a simple missing persons case. She shows a similar reluctance when her ex-husband begs her to find his girlfriend, who seems to have disappeared. But when the mysteries take a sinister turn, Sundström finds herself inextricably involved in both baffling affairs, one of which seems to be connected to a robbery that took place 20 years earlier. As the cases begin to unravel, tragedy awaits the investigating team.

Disappointed. Awkward exposition. Trite villain.

Must be selling for the main reason I bought it: drafting on other Scandinavian works.

The best of the trilogy....and better narration as well!

It is difficult to explain why this trilogy ended up being so gripping. The story-lines were, to varying degrees, predictable from fairly early on in each of the three books.
And yet..... The central character was captivating, and although a bit prone to cock-ups, her profound decency shone through and ultimately wins.

Interestingly, the author pinches a few touches from other Scandinavia-Crime books, (eg: her Islamic side-kick), but it's an enjoyable series of books and this last one was definitely the best of the bunch.

Up to this book, by far and away the largest negative was the narration, which had been awful. The last book sees an improvement in that respect, although her constant mispronunciation of place names continues (eg: the W in Keswick is silent). But in this last book, there are less stumbles with sentence structures.

Overall.. An easy good listen.

Book 3 in series

I liked this title better than Murder in Malmo which was my introduction to Torquil MacLeod' s Sundstrom series. The plot flows smoothly, the murder that almost slips quietly slips off the pages is teased into a a very good mystery. Lots of interesting tidbits on life in Sweden kept me interested. I recommend this one.

What awful narration!

I normally like this narrator but her awful awful English dialect and accent and pronunciation has totally put me off.

Dreadful Narration

The Malmö books are very well written and I have thoroughly enjoyed reading them as they are published.
The narration by Marguerite Gavin is woeful and spoils the experience of listening to a familiar story. Please please please do not attempt any accents, the story doesn’t need them and I’m afraid that the narrator does not have the range to either replicate them or even stay in whatever locale she has decided to place them, thus we get bizarre mixtures of accents from around the UK when a character speaks. The pronunciation of Swedish streets and squares - Lilla Toria? is also off putting for those of us familiar with these places.
Great stories and well paced but I’d recommend reading the books if you are able to
