The Mystery at the Second-Hand Shop

Unabridged Audiobook

Release Date
February 2023
8 hours 25 minutes
In a quiet provincial Danish town, something is afoot. The volunteers of the local second-hand shop keep dying.

Since they’re all OAP's, the police can’t see the problem. It’s the inevitable – if unfortunate – circle of life. However, resident busy-body, and force-to-be-reckoned-with, Anne-Maj Mortensen is not so sure. She may be newly retired herself, but she still has her wits about her and knows when something needs a little investigating...

Scandi crime, but not as you’ve ever seen it before. The 'Danish Miss Marple' will thrill fans of Richard Osman's 'The Thursday Murder Club' and Anthony Horowitz' 'Hawthorne' series.

Anne Grue is one of the most popular Danish crime novelists. Grue made her breakthrough with the crime novels about the detective Dan Sommerdahl which was adapted for tv, starring Peter Mygind and Laura Drasbæk - directed by Kenneth Kainz also known for his work on Netflix’s ‘The Rain’.

Definitely not Miss Marple or Agatha Christie. It’s not a bad story once you drop any expectations but it is so long winded. There is too much detail that doesn’t contribute to the plot such in depth details of Anna-Maj cooking & food in general. This may suit some readers but I’m sorry but I won’t be reading the rest of the series. The narrator was good which is the only reason I made it to the end. I’d be happy to listen to Joan Walker again.

I liked it! Puts me in mind of the Thursday Murder Club Mysteries by Robert Osman. Old codgers solving crimes, just like the original: Miss Marple. Fun and lightweight if you don't mind that it's a gruesome murder mystery. Looking forward to the next installment.

Becomes quite interesting toward the end but the first half is slow. A bit too much talk about ailments.

Narration was good. At the start I did wonder if I had downloaded the wrong book as the description of food preparation went on a bit too long. This became a bit of a theme through out which I found a bit distracting. However, I did enjoy the main theme. Rather like a Danish Miss Marple and would like to listen to more.
