Now available in mass market, the sequel to the #1 international bestseller The Ice Princess returns readers to the isolated Swedish fishing village where dangerous secrets lie just beneath the community’s tranquil surface.
Early one morning, a six-year-old boy sneaks away to play on a forbidden part of Fjallbacka’s coastline. When he stumbles upon the bloody body of a recently murdered woman, a real-life nightmare unfolds. Worse yet, the police soon uncover two more skeletons buried beneath her, young campers whose disappearance has baffled investigators for decades.
The case is assigned to Constable Patrik Hedstrom, the charming detective who won Erica Falck’s heart in The Ice Princess. As the now-pregnant Erica prepares for the birth of their baby, panic spreads when a second young girl goes missing. Patrik soon finds himself leading a desperate manhunt to track down the killer before he—or she—strikes again.
International literary sensation Camilla LÄckberg takes the drama, suspense, and passion of her #1 bestseller The Ice Princess to new heights, returning to the Swedish fishing community of FjÄllbacka, where life is remote, peaceful— and for some, tragically short.
Police detective Patrik HedstrÖm and his girlfriend, writer Erica Falck, are anticipating the arrival of their first child when grim news comes: a boy playing on a perilous outcropping has stumbled across a woman’s bloody corpse, a discovery that leads investigators to uncover two skeletons buried beneath her—campers who disappeared decades ago. Superintendent Mellberg gives Patrik the gruesome case, and topping his list of suspects is a local family of criminals and religious fanatics—what dark secrets are they hiding? But no one expects the next blow, when a young girl goes missing. . . .
