Haunted by a childhood of neglect, she resolves to dig deep into her family?s past and finally uncover the reasons why. Her enquiries lead her to the home of a retired history teacher. He was among her mother?s circle of friends during the Second World War but her questions are met with bizarre and evasive answers. Two days later he meets a violent death. Detective Patrik Hedstrm, Erica?s husband, is on paternity leave but soon becomes embroiled in the murder investigation. Who would kill so ruthlessly to bury secrets so old Reluctantly Erica must read her mother?s wartime diaries. But within the pages is a painful revelation about Erica?s past. Could what little knowledge she has be enough to endanger her husband and newborn baby The dark past is coming to light, and no one will escape the truth of how they came to be ... About the Author Born in 1971, Camilla Leckberg graduated from Gothenburg University of Economics, before moving to Stockholm where she worked for a few years as an economist. However, a course in creative crime writing became the trigger to a drastic change of career. Her first four novels all became Swedish bestsellers. She lives in a suburb of Stockholm, with her husband Micke and her two children. Industry Reviews Lackberg is an expert at mixing scenes of domestic cosiness with blood-curdling horror... a must for white-knuckle junkies Guardian Lackberg is particularly good at portraying the claustrophobia of a small community in which everyone knows everyone else and the police may well be friends with killers The Times Camilla Lackberg is probably the hottest female writer in Sweden at the moment... Lackbergs job is to make the reader pleasurably uncomfortable - one of her ironclad skills Independent Chilly, deceptive and lucid, just like the icy environment it describes Literary Review Both chilling and thrilling The Sun Heart-stopping and heart-warming, The Ice Princess is a masterclass in Scandinavian crime writing Val McDermid
