March 2011 Book of the Month.

A psychological thriller 'par excellence' from the critically acclaimed and no. 1 bestselling Swedish crime sensation Camilla Lackberg. The remote resort of Fjallbacka has seen its share of tragedy, though perhaps none worse than that of the little girl found in a fisherman's net. But the post-mortem reveals that this is no case of accidental drowning!

The Stonecutter Synopsis

Local detective Patrik Hedstrom has just become a father. It is his grim task to discover who could be behind the methodical murder of a child both he and his partner, Erica, knew well. He knows the real question - and answer - lies with why. What he does not know is how this case will reach into the dark heart of Fjallbacka and the town's past, and tear aside its idyllic facade, perhaps forever.

The Stonecutter Press Reviews

Praise for 'The Stonecutter':

 

'The Stonecutter, by Camilla Lackberg ! continues her excellent series! The main narrative is cleverly interspersed with flashbacks from the past, the relevance of which becomes apparent as the novel progresses. 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
Marcel Berlins, The Times

'Camilla Lackberg is probably the hottest female writer in Sweden at the moment! Lackberg's job is to make the reader pleasurably uncomfortable -- one of her ironclad skills'
Barry Forshaw, Independent

'Lackberg is an expert at mixing scenes of domestic cosiness with blood-curdling horror! a must for white-knuckle junkies'
Guardian Praise for 'The Ice Princess':

 

'Another top-class Scandinavian crime writer reaches the British market'
The Times

'Has a brooding quality redolent of its barren Swedish landscapes! intriguing and not a little disturbing'
Irish Times

'Chilly, deceptive and lucid, just like the icy environment it describes'
Literary Review

'Heart-stopping and heart-warming, 'The Ice Princess' is a masterclass in Scandinavian crime writing' Val McDermid
