Agreed re: both Robin (here) and the series as a whole. I wanted to violently shake Robin on numerous occasions here -- she was teetering dangerously on the edge of TSTL. But the series as such is phantastic.
I'm surprising myself at how much I enjoyed this one!

I'm not sure I would like the series as much if I were reading them. This narrator is fabulous. :)
I agree -- I've listened to all four of them as well. (Binged on the first three, in fact.)
Yep, and you're not the first one to question that unbelievably stupid decision of Robin's. I remember going off on a bit of a rant about it on here.

Every time I see that title the Blue Oyster Cult song goes through my head.

That song really *was* the inspiration for the book's title -- every chapter is prefaced by a BOC song title or line, too (and "Mistress of the Salmon Salt" is referenced in connection with Strike's mother, and is part of what initially draws him into the case).

So, JK has good taste in music...
She does! :)

FWIW, she does the same thing with Ibsen in book 2 of the series.
