LoveReading View on The Preacher

The second psychological thriller from No 1 bestselling Swedish crime sensation Camilla Lackberg. In the fishing community of Fjallbacka, life is remote, peaceful - and for some, tragically short...

The Preacher Synopsis

Foul play was always suspected in the disappearance twenty years ago of two young holidaymakers in the area. Now a young boy out playing has confirmed this grim truth. Their remains, discovered with those of a fresh victim, send the town into shock. Local detective Patrik Hedstrom, expecting a baby with his girlfriend Erica, can only imagine what it is like to lose a child. When a second young girl goes missing, Hedstrom's attention focuses on the Hults, a feuding clan of misfits, relgious fanatics and criminals. The suspect list is long but time is short - which of this family's dark secrets will provide the vital clue?

The Preacher Press Reviews

Praise for 'The Preacher':

 

'[Lackberg] is an expert at mixing scenes of domestic cosiness with blood-curdling horror ... a must for white-knuckle junkies
Guardian

'An entertaining storyteller [who] keeps us guessing'
Independent

'It's worth keeping an eye on Camilla Lackberg, whose second novel, The Preacher, is a cracker ... the plotting is immaculate and the villain proves to be thoroughly and inventively unpleasant'
Independent

'Both chilling and thrilling'
Sun

'A welcome addition to the swelling ranks of Scandinavian crime writers... a good, solid read'
Irish Independent Praise for

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

'A welcome new voice in crime fiction'
Woman & Home

 

'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

 

'Camilla Lackberg is a more than welcome addition to the growing ranks of Scandinavian crime writers translated into English. With its sharp emotional nuances and psychological insight, 'The Ice Princess builds in suspense as the author turns her clear eye on the buried secrets and contemporary relationships of a small, isolated community. I predict that Fjallbacka and its crimes and people will soon be as poplular here as they are in her native Sweden' Peter Robinson
