Rated 3 out of 5 by from Passable I enjoyed the first two novels but found The Stonecutter to random and far too whiny. Way too negative and had trouble finishing it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Ice Princess, THe Preache, The Stone Cutter Oh my goodness, I really enjoyed these stories. I wanted to read them more slowly than I did but I had to know who, what and where. I was sad to actually come to the end of each story simply because I did not want them to end. I will continue to order Camilla's stories. I consistently changed my mind on " who done it".

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't put down! This trilogy was my first exposure to Camila's work. I loved all three of them. I quite enjoy how she has a couple-few story lines and pulls them all together at the end. It keeps you guessing so you keep turning the pages.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't put the series down Lackberg leaves you wanting to know what happens next - the next line, the next chapter, the next book There's always a little teaser at the end to carry you forward to the next book. Addictive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love! I recently stumbled upon the novel 'buried angels', and have been held in the authors grasp ever since. I can not put her books down. I have started at the start of the series. I hadn't known when I started the first book that it was a whole collection. But now I am entirely glad that there's more books to read. I love the characters! Everything flows brilliantly well together, following the dramatics within each characters lives and following the initial plot of the murders makes it near impossible to put them down or even break between novels. I can never guess the ending and this is something that provides a exciting challenge - maybe I will figure it out this time! Love love love this author. I am now a groupie lol. xD

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Mystery A body is found in a cleft of some rocks on a hot summer morning and Patrik is up for the investigation if only to get out of the house. A very pregnant Erica and unwelcome house guests make the already hot summer season more uncomfortable. But when he gets to the crime scene, he finds that there are two more skeletons under the corpse. These lead to a cold case that was almost solved until the main suspect committed suicide. So is this a copy cat crime or was the suicide a hoax? Dredging into the depths of a strange family brings Patrik to one certain conclusion. Not only is he ready to take on the investigation but also the larger thing that are looming in his life - fatherhood.
