This is the third Patrik Hedsrom and Erica Falk mystery I've read and I've enjoyed how the author has developed the relationship between Patrik and Eric in addition to her well constructed mysteries. I'm looking forward to reading The Hidden Child and The Stranger and am hoping that more of the series will be translated and available in the U.S. ( )

In the second book of the series a murder unearths crimes committed decades ago, which involves the two quarreling branches of a strange family. Not the actual investigation is the strength of the book but the character representation and the growing tension. ( )

Too complicated and far fetched. ( )

Camilla Lackberg is an expert at weaving a murder mystery. This novel involves the murder of a German tourist, whose body is discovered one morning by a 6 year-old boy while he is playing. Upon removing her body from the scene, police discover two more bodies below her . . . bodies that are now merely skeletons. Chief investigator, Patrik must find out who these girls were, what happened to them, and who tortured and killed them. Lackberg slowly unravels this mystery through flashbacks, and multiple character perspectives. Her character's are well-developed, her story is enthralling, and her writing is beautiful. Once picked up, her novels are hard to put down. ( )

This is another brilliant book by Lackberg. It is one of the earlier ones and being set in Sweden I have some problem finding the places mentioned. Erica is pregnant in this book and Patrick is caught up in a series of murders, some recent involving a local family. ( )
