Description

An isolated Swedish town. A deaf reporter terrified of nature. A dense spruce forest overdue for harvest. A pair of eyeless hunters found murdered in the woods.

It's week one of the Swedish elk hunt, and the sound of gunfire is everywhere. When Tuva Moodyson investigates the story that could make her career, she stumbles on a web of secrets that knit Gavrik town together.

Are the latest murders connected to the Medusa killings 20 years ago? Is someone following her? Why take the eyes? Tuva must face her demons and venture deep into the woods to stop the killer and write the story. And then get the hell out of Gavrik.

Can’t wait for the sequel

Loved this book and the narration - it was like watching a movie in my mind. Just the right about of detail. I did not see the ending coming. Very well done.

I’m looking forward to listening to the sequel.

horrible narration, DNF

I have listened to a lot of audiobooks, and have heard my share of bad narrators, but this one takes the prize for absolute worst. It was actually painful to listen to, and I just could not finish.
The narration completely ruined it.
I had to listen at 1.75 just to get it to sound like an almost normal rate of speech. She spoke so slowly! Her voice was sluggish, dreamy and completely without affect. Her accent was vaguely Scandinavian, vaguely posh English, and it didn't help. I can't. I can't explain just how grating and horrible it was. No exaggeration.

I think I'm going to try to find a physical copy of the book, because the story may have been interesting? Honestly, I couldn't say for sure because it was so hard to concentrate on it.

Well Done!

I wasn't sure when I bought it but I really enjoyed it. The accent and cadence of the performance helped set the story in Sweden for me. Great story, great performance...on to the sequel!

Couldn't stop listening.

The story so well presented and exciting that I could see it in my mind's as I listened along. Dramatic twists and turns.

Suspenseful

I found this book to be very much like watching a story unfolding in front of me. The entirely normal parts interspersed with the suspense! Was really good!

Would not recommend

I found the ending of this book to be extremely frustrating and I will not be purchasing another audiobook from the author. Mild spoilers below.


The majority of the book is a bunch is filler with numerous red herring, absurd characters that leads you to guess the actual killers identify based on the fact they are the most normal individual in the story. The true killers motivations are basically an after thought and but revealed until the end of the story.

Wasn't expecting that ending

This book kept me guessing all the time, thinking yes that is the suspect, no it's that one , oh wait maybe it's a team. This book keeps you guessing right to the end and the end is definitely a shocker.

Brilliantly Written and Read

Will Dean has created a memorable character in a memorable setting dealing with memorable murders. That's right, you won't forget this one after you read it.

Tuva Moodyson is a deaf, small-town reporter with more than her fair share of hang ups. With that kind of protagonist, it might be tempting for an author to slip into easy cliches, but Dean never does. Instead, he delivers a compelling but flawed hero who has you pulling for her with each step in those dark pines. Dean also provides an interesting gallery of murder suspects who range from the subtle to the bizarre and the result is wonderfully entertaining.

Maya Lindh's narration brings Tuva to life in a five-star performance that's filled with personality.
