The Speechless God is Anna Jansson's debut novel and the first in the hit Nordic crime series about Detective Constable Maria Wern.

'The man was hanging stiffly by a slip noose, his shirt ripped to shreds, with a thick stick piercing his belly.' Police constable Maria Wern and her colleagues are stunned by the bestiality they encounter. A similar murder occurred in Uppsala nine years earlier. The killer had apparently died in a car fire. Could there be a connection after all?

Thanks to Maria's persistence, the image of a murderer begins to coalesce - a human being betrayed and degraded to the point where reality gives way to insanity.

This just wasn’t my cup of tea. I finished it but it just wasn’t for me

Good scandi-noir plot. I found the writing bloated and the narration distracting. But police procedural often feel that way to me as audiobooks, and this is only the debut book of what is now a hit TV show.

Loved this .... liked the Nordic history / mythology lesson with the book ... narrator did a good job.
