Winner of the Crime Writers' Association (UK) Gold Dagger Award, this entry in the Inspector Morse series offers clues to the disappearance of a Swedish student through a riddle in verse. Lovers of crosswords and literary quotations will relish this complex case. "Morse" comes alive through Michael Pennington's presentation of the wry police inspector. His speech patterns perfectly capture Morse--that "conceited, civilized, boozy, sensitive man." Touches of bitterness, sarcasm and impatience are wonderfully conveyed through tone and inflection. Pennington seems to neatly capture the author's voice. The dialogue is lively, and Morse and Sergeant Lewis could entertain the listener indefinitely.
