This is an audiobook that grabs the listener's interest at the start--and keeps getting better. Narrated ably by Euan Morton, it's a mystery focusing on brothers Carl and Roy, who share lifelong secrets and whose lives continue to intertwine in often dark, depraved, and unnerving ways. At the outset, Carl returns to the Norwegian town they grew up in with a wife and a mysterious business opportunity. Meanwhile, there are an alarming number of murders, including the mysterious deaths of Carl and Roy's parents, all of which thrust the town into a fearful frenzy. Author Jo Nesbo's complex story is powerful, and his dialogue is superb. Couple that with Morton's precise delivery and his ability to effectively mix inflection, tone, and pace, and the book is an audio page-turner.
