The psychological thriller debut of No.1 bestselling Swedish crime sensation Camilla Lackberg.

A small town can hide many secrets

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 like she's taken her own life.

Meanwhile, local detective Patrik Hedstroem is following his own suspicions about the case. It's only when they start working together that the truth begins to emerge about a 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

Praise for Camilla Lackberg:

`Domesticity and brutality are Lackberg staples... Tightly plotted... Unflinching.' Sunday Times

`Pacy ... with flashing insight into the dark places of the psyche' Sunday Times

`A top-class Scandinavian crime writer' The Times

`The rock star of Nordic Noir' Independent

`Lackberg is an expert at mixing scenes of domestic cosiness with blood-curdling horror' Guardian

`Both chilling and thrilling' Sun

“A solid start to the series”

This was a good solid start to a crime series. It was clumsy in parts, which i'm not sure was the writing, or the translation, so some of the ways the plot moved forward exasperated me a bit. The story was good... More
