Listen to Mark Strong reading from The Remorseful Day.

Mark Strong reads an edited version of chapter 75 from Colin Dexter’s The Remorseful Day. The extract lasts for around 4 minutes. I personally would love to listen to Mark Strong reading all of the book. It is of course rather poignant in light of the death of Colin Dexter.

This reading from The Remorseful Day originally featured in an episode of BBC Radio 3’s Words and Music on the subject of Detectives.

After having looked after my mum for some 11 years she is now unfortunately in a nursing home. I'm afraid her dementia worsened as did her physical capabilities. UPDATE: My mum died from Covid-19 on the 6th May 2020. So, for the first time in 21 years I find myself no longer caring for anyone. Apart from my mum I was also a single parent to two children and also looked after my dad who had Alzheimers, (he died in 2005). So, I have decided to return to University to try and get another degree this time in English Literature. (My other degree I got some 30 years ago is one in Ecological Science). After a year at college I have passed all grades and now will start Edinburgh University in September 2019. I am now in second year having passed all the requirements in first year.

  1. I’ve got the abridged version on cassette read by Kevin Whately. I too would like it read unabridged by Mark Strong. Maybe all the books could be made into unabridged audio versions, that would be a great tribute.
