Flann O’Brien: The Third Policeman (abridged)

Read by Jim Norton

CD - 3 discs


Usually despatched in 2 - 3 working days.

Flann O’Brien’s most popular and surrealistic novel concerns an imaginary, hellish village police force and a local murder. Weird, satirical, and very funny, it is read by Irish master reader Jim Norton.

Audiophile Audition

“This complicated novel’s saving grace is an unexpected ending, and Jim Norton’s narration. He employs varying tones and pitches, and one of the officers’ voices is a wonderful Indian-British accent with a friendly, commanding authority.”

Sunday Times

“It’s clever, funny and inventive – and as disturbing as one should expect from a writer who believed humour to be “the handmaid of sorrow and fear””

The Guardian

“I thought Jim Norton reading Ulysses was as good as it gets. This is even better.”

The Times

“and a soul called Joe, who does not remember who he is and who may or may not be dead. Read aloud in Jim Norton’s lilting, confident brogue, all the musicality and wit of O’Brien’s writing is bought out, and our hero’s dreamlike, circular journey through a looking-glass world of twisted logic becomes almost plausible.”
