Publisher's Summary

When a shadow from the past reawakens, successful surgeon Axel Glenne's life turns upside down. Soon after, a woman's body is found in Nordmarka, a forest north of Oslo.

Items found near the body suggest that the killer is leaving a message, and while this death is being investigated, another woman is murdered. The similarities are too close to be coincidental - and it appears that Axel Glenne has a connection to both victims. Medusa is a Scandinavian psychological thriller about identity and jealousy, unfaithfulness and revenge.

Slow starter

I began to think I had made a mistake wit this one. Just as I was losing interest it picked up again.

The final denouement wasn't entirely a surprise, and I didn't really like any of the characters that much, except perhaps, Nina, the policewoman. But I began to see why each character had aspects that were a bit unsavoury - these all fed into the plot.

The reading was overall good, but could at times be irritating.

I think if I could I would give it 3 1/2.

Dreary in the extreme

This has taken so long to get going, The story moves so slowly that I lost the will to live. The whole thing has irritated me to an extreme! The doctor's children are spoilt and rude, the voices for some characters are so weird that they are unbelievable. I couldn't find a single character that I liked and I couldn't care less what happened to anyone or why!
What a disappointment!

Good story ruined by terrible narration

It would appear that all Norwegian women sound like 90 year olds with thin reedy voices, the male voices are only slightly better. A shame.
Apparently you have to give 1 star as a minimum rating, so zero was not permissible

Eventually warmed up

Takes a good 4 hours to get going. Eventually gets interesting, and the twist is OK. Hard to follow the Norwegian names at times, and the female voices are very hard to differentiate. I might listen to the next one, but there’s much better stuff on Audible than this.
