Perhaps is because I have been waiting for so long and this book got delayed so many times that I almost forgot what happened, but I felt like it was missing something compared to the other books. Not enough Nightingale for example and well, all the old characters were barely mentioned in this new novel. I still enjoyed though because Kobna IS Peter and one of the best audiobook actors out there.
I missed the Rivers so much that overall it was still a good experience. Not my favourite of the series though

I came actually this series looking for something to listen while waiting for the new book from Aaronovitch and I couldn’t be happier of this discovery. This is not an obvious mix of crime and supernatural like the Rivers series but the duo of McGrey and Frey is just brilliant, the story is clever, well balanced and every installment of this series leaves you with an extra little detail that makes you think there is a bigger secret brewing underneath all this , most likely linked to the McGrey family tragedy .
Absolutely recommended.
The narrator is super, accents are on spot!.

Original and entertaining

Funny and pleasant story. The storyline is original, funny and thought provoking at times. A light read, nothing special.

I liked the story but there are two different tracks in this audiobook. Like if some parts were added using a different microphone. Very annoying to listen!

This is the sort of book your read between books. Funny and witty with a nice mix of investigation and fantasy. Very British .
Not the best but definitely a pleasant book

For all nerds out there, this is the book you have to read( or listen). I enjoyed every single bit and listen to it non stop for 2 days.
Well done Will Wheaton!

Qui vengono soddisfatti tutti i dubbi ( se ancora ne erano rimasti) sulla vicenda Salander e tutti i nodi vengono al pettine con estrema soddisfazione durante il processo conclusivo. Come sempre la lettura di Santamaria è un pó piatta ma alla fine dopo aver ascoltato tutti e tre gli audiolibri penso anche che sia appropriata. Consigliato come tutta la serie!

Interpretazione un po' monotona ma storia eccitante e con retroscena interessanti sul passato di Lisbeth Salander. Nuove inchieste e un caso così intricato che ci vuole un pó di memoria per collegare i punti e seguire la storia. Consigliatissimo!

Is this supposed to be an action thriller for adults?

Not for adults but definitely a good YA.
Not a thriller. Is quite full of cliches and a love story that is too juvenile and out of context.
I quit halfway through!
