Detective Superintendent Lorimer's worst nightmare is a serial killer loose in his city. But two serial killers operating at once on the streets of Glasgow is a nightmare come to life. Is there a link between the brutal slaying of prostitutes in the backstreets of the city and the methodical killing of several unconnected businessmen? Lorimer is never one to jump to conclusions but something about these cases just doesn't add up. Each killer has a different MO, but their obsession with murder is equally chilling.

It starts with just one body - tortured, mummified and then discarded. Its discovery reveals a nightmare world of hidden lives. Of lost identities, secret rituals and brutal exploitation, where nobody can be trusted. This is the darkest, most complex case the police have ever seen. This is the world of the Crow Girl.

struggled with all the characters and time lines. I think this book would be better suited to hard copy than audio.

Exclusive to Audible! Listen to a discussion between the author and the narrator of The Widow at the end of this recording. We've all seen him: the man - the monster - staring from the front page of every newspaper, accused of a terrible crime. But what about her: the woman who grips his arm on the courtroom stairs - the wife who stands by him? Jean Taylor's life was blissfully ordinary. Nice house, nice husband. Glen was all she'd ever wanted: her Prince Charming.

the narrator was very good. I struggled with Jean's character; too cliche English dependent housewife. I was disappointed by the lack of suspense , twists and turns. I did not enjoy this novel and don't think it should be classed as a thriller.

Mikael Blomkvist is contacted by renowned scientist Professor Balder. Fearing for his life, but more concerned for his son's well-being, Balder wants Millennium to publish his story. More interesting to Blomkvist than Balder's advances in Artificial Intelligence, is his connection with a certain female superhacker. It seems that Lisbeth Salander, like Balder, is a target of ruthless cyber gangsters that will soon bring terror to the streets of Stockholm, the Millennium team....

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

The narrator was grating. I'll not purchase another read by the same narrator. Book was not well written; certainly not even close to Stig Larsen's style.
