The Ice Princess, Paperback
3 out of 5 (1 rating)


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

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.

Review by
The Ice Princess marks a promising start to Camilla Lackberg's Falck and Hedström series, though there is plenty of room for improvement. The central mystery, which surrounds a young woman's death and the many interwoven secrets lying dormant beneath a small town, was quite engrossing. My main gripes were the dialogue and the romance between the two lead characters - both of which were hollow and clichéd. This may be partly down to lousy translation, so I plan to give Lackberg's books another try.
