For the first time in English, the psychological thriller debut of No 1 bestselling Swedish crime sensation Camilla Lackberg. Returning to her hometown after the funeral of her parents, writer Erica Falck finds a community on the brink of tragedy. The death of her childhood friend, Alex, is just the beginning. Her wrists slashed, her body frozen in an ice-cold bath, it seems, at first, that she has taken her own life. Erica conceives a memoir about the beautiful but remote Alex, one that will help to overcome her writer's block as well as answer questions about their own past. While her interest grows to an obsession, local detective Patrik Hedstrom is following his own suspicions about the case. But it is only when they start working together that the truth begins to emerge about this small town with a deeply disturbing past!

I enjoy Camilla's books. (Also "The Preacher"). I sent this to my sister...I'm hoping she will like it as much as I do. I just re-read The Murder Stone by Louise Penny. (What a goooood story). This story would be perfect as a Columbo episode, but Peter Falk is no longer with us...

Another Swedish mystery
An interesting, well honed novel. The translator is English and as such many expressions differ from that found in American usage for readers on the western side of the Atlantic. Nonetheless, at times it seems strictly verbatim, rather using more appropriate culture-related phraseology or slang. Pity. A sentence or phrase may come across stilted, obviously not the author's style.

The book moves at a sedate pace with much detail about the inner lives of the characters and a complex plot, An excellent and pleasant read.
