NO ORDINARY PSYCHOLOGICAL THRILLER - THIS WILL KEEP YOU UP ALL NIGHT 'Cross-cutting between characters at an ever-increasing pace, this is Scandi-noir at its powerful bleakest.'Daily Mail For fans of Jo Nesbo and The Bridge, The Ice Beneath Her is a gripping and deeply disturbing story about love, betrayal and obsession that is impossible to put down. Fast-paced and peopled with compelling characters, it surprises at every turn as it hurtles towards an unforgettable ending with a twist you really won't see coming . . . A young woman is found beheaded in an infamous business tycoon's marble-lined hallway. The businessman, scandal-ridden CEO of the retail chain Clothes & More, is missing without a trace. But who is the dead woman? And who is the brutal killer who wielded the machete? Rewind two months earlier to meet Emma Bohman, a sales assistant for Clothes & More, whose life is turned upside down by a chance encounter with Jesper Orre. Insisting that their love affair is kept secret, he shakes Emma's world a second time when he suddenly leaves her with no explanation. As frightening things begin to happen to Emma, she suspects Jesper is responsible. But why does he want to hurt her? And how far would he go to silence his secret lover?

MEDIA REVIEWS
Thrilling characters and expertly written, down to the very last detail. I didn't actually have time to read, and did everything to try to put the book down. But I simply couldn't. Not until the last page had been read. -- Stefan Anhem, author of the bestselling Fabian Risk series * Stefan Anhem, author of the bestselling Fabian Risk series *
Skilful, thrilling, and unexpected -- Karinboktok * Karinboktok (Popular Swedish book blog) *
Wickedly complex, macabre, and highly entertaining! It is, ultimately, a story about love, loss, murder, abuse, and obsession. The writing is clever and precise. The characters are damaged, lonely, and despondent. This is an intriguing, debut psychological thriller that is perfect for fans of Jo Nesbo or Henning Mankell * What's Better Than Books Blog *
Original & exciting with a shocking and satisfying ending. I couldn't help but like Peter the main detective in the story disputed his having more problems and issues than the murderer! I hope he appears in another book and that Hanne survives to once again help him solve the crime. I can't say more without giving spoilers so will simply end by heartily recommending this fabulous book * Net Galley reviewer *
This book is excellent. All the characters were believable and their backstories handled sensitively, none more so that Hanne. I am really impressed with Grebe's talents and look forward to reading more. In an overcrowded genre, this is a refreshing and incisive voice * Plucked Highbrow *
This is a cleverly plotted mystery with a tremendous cast of characters, particularly the police team assigned to the case. This one is an all-nighter * For the Love of Books Blog *
A clever and addictive psychological thriller with some great main characters * Liz Loves Books *
A high-profile Swedish novel . . . that lives up to its reputation . . . Cross-cutting between the characters at an ever-increasing pace, this is Scandi-noir at its powerful bleakest -- Geoffrey Wansell * Daily Mail *
Captivating story...the three unreliable narrators deftly ensure readers' certainties stay on very thin ice * Sunday Mirror *
This gripping story of murder, love and betrayal is perfect for fans of noir Scandi drama The Bridge * Essentials Magazine *
A complex, macabre and utterly captivating thriller. Grebe's first solo flight is a triumph -- Deirdre O'Brien * Crime Scene *
It's complex, and as you read it, it is hard to even guess at what's going on under the surface. This isn't a weakness, it's just a puzzle, and the power of the writing. plotting and general structure is such that you more than stick with it, sure the writer is leading you somewhere. It was disturbing, and exercises the grey matter, but was unputdownable. I didn't read it before I needed to go to sleep. BEcause I would be tossing, turning, and fretting. A must read book about obsession, betrayal and of course, love. Highly recommended * Frost Magazine *
There was enough in this book to keep me invested in the characters and it also had me guessing. What more could you want from a book as though colder months begin to set in? * Belle About Town *
Really got hooked on The Ice Beneath Her - a clever and addictive psychological thriller with some great main characters (one of whom I disliked to the point of loving) and a lovely twisty turny whodunnit at the heart that will keep you on your reading toes * Liz Loves Books *
Set in Sweden this psychological thriller is one that will chill you as much as thrill you * Cleopatra Loves Books *
Compelling * Books From Dusk Till Dawn *
Full of complicated and interesting characters, intrigue and deception, and a twist that I didn't entirely see coming, Grebe is an author that is on my radar now * Novel Gossip *

“A must read”

I seem to just love Zaffre books. I hope readers don't get nightmares from reading The Ice Beneath Her. I couldn't put the hardback down. I have already order a copy of More Bitter Than Death by Camilla... More
