Description
Praise forThe Ice Princess: The hottest crime genre of the moment is Nordic noir and Swedish writer Camilla Lackberg (who shares Stieg Larsson's translator) is one of the reasons. As with all Scandinavian murder mysteries, it's darker, bleaker, and the plot far more sinister than similar American fare. Larsson fans who give Lackberg's novel a chance to seduce them will be rewarded."USA Today At the start of Lackberg's haunting U.S. debut, biographer Erica Falck feels compelled to write a novel about why her beautiful friend Alex would kill herself. Lackberg skillfully details how horrific secrets are never completely buried and how silence can kill the soul."Publishers Weekly, starred review Camilla Lackberg has written seven blockbuster novels in her native Swedish but, until now, no one has published any of them in the United States. Now Pegasus Books has stepped forward. The New York Times Heart-stopping a masterclass in Scandinavian crime fiction." Val McDermid
