This audiobook is a perfect example of the popular Nordic noir genre. Listeners will be transported to a small fishing village ominously named the Devil's Fjord on a remote island in the Faroe Islands. It's a place, as one resident describes it, where you don't belong unless you can kill. Narrator Saul Reichlin, who is English (as is the author), tells this gritty story in a cordial voice that makes its human savagery all the more terrifying. Reichlin's character portrayals are vivid and convincing. The narration begins with a graphic description of a whale hunt, and soon it's not only whales that are cut open. This story is dark but enlightening--although not for the squeamish. D.L.G. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2019]
