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
