Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Review:

“Excellent...a must-read for fans of Scandinavian crime literature.” Booklist, starred review

Review:

“A highly-touted, moody tale.” The Washington Post

Review:

"The Ice Princess is a precisely layered, highly engrossing story. Stieg Larsson fans who give Lackberg's novel a chance to seduce them will be rewarded." USA Today

Synopsis:

This is a mystery comparable to The Girl With The Dragon Tatoo.
The characters get a little complex but the plot is twisted
as the Norwegian authors tend to do. I thought this book
was a page turner and worthy of an award.

This book begins with a haunting description of a beautiful woman's dead body in a bathtub of frozen water. Mesmerizing. If you like Scandinavian thrillers this is a great choice. It has the mystery of a Stieg Larson, but is less violent and without the twisted sex. The mystery carried to the end, with lots of character development and depiction of Swedish life in a fishing village cum tourist town.

Charles Dalton, September 2, 2011 (view all comments by Charles Dalton)
"The Ice Princess" by Camilla Lackberg was recommended to me as a book that was as good as "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo". I greatly enjoyed both, but they are very different kinds of books which I don't feel should be compared. The Ice Princess was interesting and suspenseful and very well written (or should I say translated). Even though it is a mystery, it lacks the violent theme that is prevalent in the Dragon Tattoo series. I have just obtained Ms Lackberg's second book from Powells.com and I plan to start it today. And I'm eagerly awaiting the translation of her other books. She tells an intriguing story in a very interesting style.
