The series’ creators have said that anyone who has read the book “will have a lot more ammunition when dissecting plot lines” of the show. The Third Policeman comes to life in this new unabridged recording.

Editorial Reviews

“Jim Norton’s Irish accent is appropriate to the setting. His tone maintains a deadpan, offhand manner, which becomes increasingly chilling after the murder is committed.” AudioFile
