Der Bote out in Germany

Fredrik Beier is back – in Der Bote.

When Der Hirte, the first part of the Beier-saga was released in German in the summer of 2017, it was a huge success, with several weeks on the prestigious Spiegel list.

Now we continue the journey down police detective Fredrik Beier’s troublesome road in Der Bote. Hope you enjoy the ride.

I am very happy that the excellent Dietmar Wunder once again will be the voice presenting Der Bote to all those who prefer the audiobook-version. Click here for a Hörprobe.
