The gripping psychological thriller debut of No 1 bestselling Swedish crime sensation Camilla Lackberg. 'Heart-stopping and heart-warming, The Ice Princess is a masterclass in Scandinavian crime writing' Val McDermid

Returning to her hometown after the funeral of her parents, writer Erica Falck finds a community on the brink of tragedy. The death of her childhood friend, Alex, is just the beginning. Her wrists slashed, her body frozen in an ice cold bath, it seems that she has taken her own life.

Erica conceives a memoir about the beautiful but remote Alex, one that will answer questions about their lost friendship. While her interest grows to an obsession, local detective Patrik Hedstrom is following his own suspicions about the case. But it is only when they start working together that the truth begins to emerge about the small town with a deeply disturbing past.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Praise for The Ice Princess':

'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

'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

European reviews for The Ice Princess:

'The plot is simply superb, in an almost Agatha Christie-style. The cast of characters emerge with clarity and feel quite genuine... secrets come out in the 331-page book that bring about more things than murder. I read it in one go. A book that you can't put down' Sala Allehanda

'Camilla Lackberg is a Crime Queen' Bild am Sontag

'Strong portrayals and ice-cold suspense from Sweden's new Agatha Christie' My Life

'Ingenious' Metropol

'This is unputdownable. Lackberg keeps the thrills coming until the very end' Viva

'Camilla Lackberg was voted Swedish Writer of the Year for 2005. Bring on the next one!' Crimezone.nl

'An amazingly mature, well thought-out and exciting criminal novel... Lackberg stands out as the best first-time offender of the year' Jury
