The third psychological thriller from No 1 bestselling Swedish crime sensation Camilla L¤ckberg. The remote resort of Fj¤llbacka has seen its share of tragedy, though perhaps none worse than that of the little girl found in a fisherman's net. But this was no accidental drowning¦. Local detective Patrik Hedstr¶m has just become a father. It is his grim task to discover who could be behind the murder of a child both he and his partner Erica knew well. What he does not know is how the case will reach into the dark heart of Fj¤llbacka and tear aside its idyllic fa§ade, perhaps forever. Review. ˜The Stonecutter, by Camilla L¤ckberg ¦ continues her excellent series¦ The main narrative is cleverly interspersed with flashbacks from the past, the relevance of which becomes apparent as the novel progresses. L¤ckberg is particularly good at portraying the claustrophobia of a small community in which everyone knows everyone else and the police may well be friends with killers' Marcel Berlins, The Times. ˜Camilla L¤ckberg is probably the hottest female writer in Sweden at the moment¦ L¤ckberg's job is to make the reader pleasurably uncomfortable “ one of her ironclad skills' Barry Forshaw, Independent. ˜Lackberg is an expert at mixing scenes of domestic cosiness with blood-curdling horror¦ a must for white-knuckle junkies' Guardian. ˜Another top-class Scandinavian crime writer reaches the British market' The Times. ˜Has a brooding quality redolent of its barren Swedish landscapes¦ intriguing and not a little disturbing' Irish Times. ˜Chilly, deceptive and lucid, just like the icy environment it describes' Literary Review. ˜Heart-stopping and heart-warming, ˜The Ice Princess' is a masterclass in Scandinavian crime writing' Val McDermid. ˜Camilla Lackberg is a more than welcome addition to the growing ranks of Scandinavian crime writers translated into English. With its sharp emotional nuances and psychological insight, ˜The Ice Princess' builds in suspense as the author turns her clear eye on the buried secrets and contemporary relationships of a small, isolated community. I predict that Fjallbacka and its crimes and people will soon be as poplular here as they are in her native Sweden' Peter Robinson About the Author. Camilla Lackberg is a worldwide bestseller renowned for her brilliant contemporary psychological thrillers. Her novels have sold over 20 million copies in 55 countries with translations into 37 languages.
