Stina Nielsen’s narration reflects the fierce character of Inspector Embla Nyström, who can’t catch a break even during a family hunting holiday. The intimacy of friends and family is broken when a stranger joins them and two guests suddenly disappear. Nielsen is precise, measured, and flexible as she capably portrays male and female characters in scenes of considerable dialogue. Fans of Nordic noir will be drawn into this whodunit set amid a harsh Swedish winter. Nielsen helps listeners differentiate between description, extended narrative, and Embla’s thoughts by switching between a neutral tone and more animated one. We are kept guessing until the end, rooting for our heroine all the way. M.R. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2019][trans]-read-by-stina-nielsen/
