Publisher's Summary

"When the film begins, she has no idea what she is about to see. Nor does she realize what devastating consequences this film and the decisions she then makes will have on the rest of her life."

The body of a young woman is found carved up and buried in a forest glade in an innocuous Swedish suburb. Alex Recht and his team in the Stockholm Police soon identify the body as belonging to missing student Rebecca Trolle, but as his team continues to excavate the site, they soon find that someone has been returning to the same spot to bury their victims year after year, decade after decade.

Investigative Analyst Fredrika Bergman is assigned the task of delving into Rebecca's private life. But little does she know that her enquiries are about to uncover evidence that will put her actions under scrutiny from Internal Affairs and will throw her private life into turmoil.

And what does the case have to do with the elderly children's author living in a care home...who has never spoken a word to anyone since she arrived years ago?

Kristina Ohlsson has already sold more than 830,000 copies worldwide. Now discover for yourself what makes her Sweden's favourite crime writer.

    "Impossible to follow the narration"

    The female narrator tries to do male voices and comes off sounding like a pompous Victorian-era gentlemen who might be recovering from a stroke and voices any woman older than about 30 as geriatric with over-pronounced. The narrators nature voice is quite nice - I suggest don't try and do all these character accents/ages it's far too distracting.

    English translation is a little clunky in places, can't help but feel some of the story would have sounded much better in Swedish.

    "Terrific mystery"

    I thoroughly enjoyed The Disappeared. Whilst I initially found some of the narrator Maggie Mash's character voices inauthentic, I soon became used to them and the narration worked for me.
    A great story with a macabre focus and a large number of different threads pulling both apart and together.
    This was my first title by this author but won't be my last.
    Recommended.

    "Another outstanding book"
    What did you like most about The Disappeared?

    The character build up was brilliant in this book along with the story line!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Disappeared?

    The ending!


    Have you listened to any of Maggie Mash’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    Another equally amazing Maggie Mash performance. Her reading style is perfect for me!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There were so many moments! Without giving it away to much, Jimmy.


    Any additional comments?

    A follow on to 'Silenced' - Another brilliant read by Kristina Ohlsson! This one has an explosive conclusion with some serious emotion!

    Story
    "Good but over long"
    Would you try another book written by Kristina Ohlsson or narrated by Maggie Mash?

    Maybe


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    It was a good story but at 16 hours I found it a bit over long and could have been much shorter in length


    What about Maggie Mash’s performance did you like?

    Well read by Maggie


    Did The Disappeared inspire you to do anything?

    Yes Might not get such large audio books!!


    Any additional comments?

    Overall still glad I bought it

    "Poor naration"
    How could the performance have been better?

    Didn't get more than a couple of hours into the story because the narrator was awful. The characters voices were dreadful, made them all sound stupid. Will make a point of avoiding this narrator in future.
