Product description

Review

[T]he writing is highly atmospheric and the pacing keeps the pages turning. Fjällbacka itself is a compelling presence in the narrative, an ideal setting for this small-town murder mystery.--Debra Ginsberg

Camilla Läckberg has written seven blockbuster novels in her native Swedish but, until now, no one has published any of them in the United States. Now Pegasus Books has stepped forward.

Starred Review. Haunting...Läckberg skillfully details how horrific secrets are never completely buried and how silence can kill the soul.

The hottest crime genre of the moment is Nordic noir and Swedish writer Camilla Läckberg (who shares Stieg Larsson's translator) is one of the reasons. As with all Scandinavian murder mysteries, it's darker, bleaker, and the plot far more sinister than similar American fare. Larsson fans who give Läckberg's novel a chance to seduce them will be rewarded.

Heart-stopping--a masterclass in Scandinavian crime writing.--Val McDermid, author of the Dr. Tony Hill and Carol Jordan mysteries

The plot is simply superb. A book that you can't put down.

A more than welcome addition to the growing ranks of Scandinavian fiction. With her sharp eye for emotional nuances and psychological insight, Fjallbacka and its crimes and people will soon be as popular here as they are in her native Sweden.--Peter Robinson, author of All the Colors of Darkness

A top-class Scandinavian writer.

Chilly, deceptive and lucid, just like the icy environment it describes.

Ingenious. Strong portrayals and ice-cold suspense.
