For the first time in English, the third psychological thriller from No 1 bestselling Swedish crime sensation Camilla Läckberg.
The remote resort of Fjällbacka has seen its share of tragedy, though perhaps none worse than that of the little girl found in a fisherman's net. But the post-mortem reveals that this is no accidental drowning…
Local detective Patrik Hedström has just become a father. It is his grim task to discover who could be behind the methodical murder of a child both he and his partner, Erica, knew well.
He knows the solution lies with finding a motive for this terrible crime. What he does not know is how this case will reach into the dark heart of Fjällbacka and tear aside its idyllic façade, perhaps forever.
Praise for ‘The Ice Princess’:
‘Another top-class Scandinavian crime writer reaches the British market’ The Times
‘A welcome new voice in crime fiction’ Woman & Home
‘Has a brooding quality redolent of its barren Swedish landscapes… intriguing and not a little disturbing’ Irish Times
‘Chilly, deceptive and lucid, just like the icy environment it describes’ Literary Review
‘Heart-stopping and heart-warming, ‘The Ice Princess’ is a masterclass in Scandinavian crime writing’ Val McDermid
"Camilla Lackberg is a more than welcome addition to the growing ranks of Scandinavian crime writers translated into English. With its sharp emotional nuances and psychological insight, ‘The Ice Princess’ builds in suspense as the author turns her clear eye on the buried secrets and contemporary relationships of a small, isolated community. I predict that Fjallbacka and its crimes and people will soon be as poplular here as they are in her native Sweden" Peter Robinson
