Staff Pick

If you're looking for a well-crafted, suspenseful mystery novel, you'll definitely want to check out Camilla Lackberg's The Ice Princess, the first installment in a series that's been garnering praise from every quarter. Far, far superior, in my humble opinion, to the Stieg Larsson novels, The Ice Princess will keep you riveted till the very last page.

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.

Synopsis:

The first novel in Camilla LÄckberg's bestselling Swedish mystery series set in a small fishing village.
