Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Simon Vance

Mystery & Suspense • 11 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Simon Vance is a master voice actor, preternaturally skilled with accents, whether from Stockholm or Kabul, upper class or gutter thug. He's an ideal fit with David Lagercrantz, the Swedish thriller writer who presents here a Sherlock Holmes simulacrum for a new and global century. Hans Rekke is a brilliantly deductive psychology professor, musically gifted eccentric, and world-class pillhead. Micaela, his Watson, is a Chilean-Swedish policewoman. In their first collaboration, Rekke helps Micaela prove that a refugee Afghan footballer was not murdered, as her bosses insist, by a drunken soccer dad. She in turn helps Rekke crawl out of the prescription cornucopia in his medicine cabinet. The plot intrigues, and Vance's portrayals of these richly varied characters is virtuosic. More, please. B.G.
