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. ( )

This book suffered at the hands of a bad translator. ( )

This is a great Swedish mystery series. As the first book in a series, this one intoduces you to a variety of characters, from those you love, to those who annoy. I was hooked right away and I avidly wait for each new book to be released from the series. ( )

The character Mellberg was farcical, other than that a very enjoyable and reasonably quick read. ( )

Was just OK. Pace was very slow. I will be reading the 2nd in the series, so hopefully it improves. ( )

A more than welcome addition to the growing ranks of Scandinavian fiction . . . Fjallbacka and its crimes and people will soon be as popular here as they are in (Lackberg's) native Sweden.--Peter Robinson, author of "All the Colors of Darkness."
