Praise For The Preacher

Swedish bestseller Läckberg's worthy second thriller set in the coastal town of Fjällbacka (after The Ice Princess) opens with a grim discovery-the naked fresh corpse of Tanja Schmidt, a German tourist, on top of the skeletal remains of two young women, later identified as Mona Thernblad and Siv Lantin.... The troubled Hults, from conniving founder (known as the Preacher) to philandering spouses, show a Ross Macdonaldesque love of twisted family relationships, while Läckberg's colorful, diverse police force, staffed with the competent, the incompetent, and the merely distracted, recalls the humanist touch of Dutch author Janwillem van de Wetering.


Läckberg weaves a solid thriller that will gratify fans of Liza Marklund, Stieg Larsson, and the team of Anders Roslund and Borge Hellstrom. This fast-paced tale ensures Läckberg’s place on the A-list of Scandinavian crime writers.

Läckberg’s many-layered story features plot twists and turns galore…. Patrik and Erica continue to evolve, leading readers to become increasingly involved in their lives. Stieg Larsson fans seeking more Nordic crime fiction may want to try Sweden’s top-selling crime writer. Läckberg is also highly recommended for readers who like mysteries set in foreign countries.
