Andrews' smooth, clear enunciation shifts during dialogue to create distinctive Minnesotans. His delivery heightens the strong sense of place inherent in Goldman's writing...Andrews imparts Shapiro's obsessive, fundamental drive to discover the truth instead of accepting the obvious or politically expedient solution and, at the same time, empathetically articulates Shapiro's ability to erode relationships, even as he is creating them.-- "Booklist (audio review)"<br \><br \>
Goldman, 55, made an easy transition to writing crime fiction after working on almost 500 episodes of television, including the first two seasons of Seinfeld...The work taught Goldman to keep his stories punchy, with short chapters to push the plot forward...In Broken Ice...plot twists involve Warroad's hard-bitten hockey coach as a suspect, the smuggling of a powerful street drug, and a climax at the expansive woodland home of legendary Minnesota musician Graham Itasca.--"Associated Press"
Witty, well-plotted...Nils is a deeply flawed but goodhearted everyman. He's supported by a cast of wonderfully quirky characters...Readers will look forward to seeing a lot more of Nils and crew.--"Publishers Weekly"
Nils continues to be brilliant and flawed, Ellie his eminently practical foil, and Minneapolis itself a major character...Goldman introduces vivid supporting characters, such as medical examiner Char Northagen, with a finesse built on the author's background in stand-up comedy and television writing, promising a long and enjoyable series. Recommended for fans of clever mysteries and witty detectives.--"Booklist "

Asked to investigate the grizzly murder of a lawyer by the dead man’s widow, Shap is far from certain if this means he’ll be working for a cold blooded murderer. As with the first two books in the series, you don’t know the full picture until the very end of the story and that’s, surely, how all crime fiction novels should be.
Shap’s personal life is a significant part of each book and only serves to enrich the overall story.
This series offers everything you could ask for from the genre. Fully drawn characters, intelligent and twisty plots, believable dialogues and richly drawn settings. I pass the time with lesser books until another Nils Shapiro novel comes along.
I adore Nils Shapiro, and this book elevated him to another level in my appreciation of the character, his crime solving acumen and his personal musings on life and people. I actually highlighted a passage in this book, and I have never done that before. It just summed up a sentiment I have and have never been able to explain in such a meaningful and concise manner.
This book can be read as a stand alone if you have not read his other books, but if you start here, be prepared to go back and read the first two in the series. Well worth it.
I look forward to more books in this series. If you prefer audio books, I am familiar with the narrator. He is very good, so go for it.
I buy a LOT of books, mostly mysteries, many of them via Kindle unlimited. But these are clearly a step above most of those, as they should be - they aren't "free". Still, I felt that the price was worth it and I'll buy the 4th one, should Matt write another.
