In this electrifying tale of suspense from an international crime-writing sensation, a grisly death exposes the dark heart of a Scandinavian seaside village. Erica Falck returns to her tiny, remote hometown of Fjällbacka, Sweden, after her parents’ deaths only to encounter another tragedy: the suicide of her childhood best friend, Alex. It’s Erica herself who finds Alex’s body—suspended in a bathtub of frozen water, her wrists slashed. Erica is bewildered: Why would a beautiful woman who had it all take her own life? Teaming up with police detective Patrik Hedström, Erica begins to uncover shocking events from Alex’s childhood. As one horrifying fact after another comes to light, Erica and Patrik’s curiosity gives way to obsession—and their flirtation grows into uncontrollable attraction. But it’s not long before one thing becomes very clear: a deadly secret is at stake, and there’s someone out there who will do anything—even commit murder—to protect it.
Fans of Scandinavian greats Stieg Larsson and Henning Mankell will devour Camilla Läckberg’s penetrating portrait of human nature at its darkest.

The ice Princess
Wonderful characters in a surprise ending thriller. Could not put this book down.......will read her next book immediately. Silverswan
I have read all of the Camilla Lackberg books that have been translated into English. She is an amazing woman with characters you grow to love and genuinely care about. All the stories are different but involve the same characters. Her books are so popular in Sweden that there is a television series BASED on her books called The Fjallbacka Murders. READ THEM ALL.
This book is probably good for those who like the "Murder She Wrote" kind of crime story. I was vastly disappointed because I know Lackburg is Sweden's most popular crime novelists. This was my first try at one of her books. There are an astounding number of great crime writers in Sweden and Scandinavia right now, but this author doesn't begin to approach there skill. Try Karin Fossum, Jo Nesbo, Ake Edwardson, Arnalder Indridason and of course the highly successful Stieglitz Larsson for starters, if you want to read really good Scandinavian crime books.
