An easy-read murder mystery - sometimes predictable, sometimes gushy romance, sometimes gruesome detail, sometimes tedious police forensic investigations and sometimes quite unbelievable; pregnancy of 10 year old rape victim, child victims murdering the perpetrator with no police report or investigation of missing person, parents adopting the baby and keeping her identity secret, wealthy grandmother paying guilt money to parents of victims but acknowledging the child in her will, more murder when the hushed up story threatens to be told ... and a suicide... and some domestic violence to round off an eventful story!

This is a gripping read and a great crime story. I love the bleak, icy setting of Fj_llbacka, a small, Swedish, seaside town - the perfect place for a thriller. The characters are varied and well-developed, and Lackberg covers a number of issues including family relationships, child abuse, adultery and domestic violence. Gradually the reader learns more about the secrets that the townspeople have hidden over a number of years until the shocking truth is revealed. With twists and turns throughout this is an engaging read from start to finish. ( )

Erica Falck is back in her hometown to clean out house after the death of her parents. It's a small town on the seaside, quiet in the wintertime when the holiday crowd has cleared out. Everybody knows everybody, but when a childhood friend she has not seen in many years is found dead in her bathtub, she finds there's still a lot she doesn't know about the people she went to school with. Early on she crosses path with the lead detective and as they compare notes on their separate investigations - her for a true crime book, him to catch the murderer - we get a nice insight into the clues as they pile up.
This is another of these leisurely developing tales that really puts you into this little town and lets you become friends with the main characters and try to figure out things along with them. I'll be back for another installment. ( )
