Christian Thydell has been receiving anonymous threats since he began writing his novel THE MERMAID. When one message, secreted within a bouquet of flowers, causes Christian to collapse at the launch party, crime writer Erica Falck is compelled to investigate.

Erica's husband detective Patrik HedstrÖm, meanwhile, is puzzled by the disappearance of Christian's friend Magnus Kjellner four months previously. When a body is found frozen in the sea near Fjallbacka, he finds he has a murder enquiry on his hands.

Someone carries an intense hatred for Christian and his circle, and they won't hesitate to turn their threats into a reality. Clues in Christian's debut novel THE MERMAID point to a horrific secret buried deep in his past - one that someone will go to any lengths to keep hidden.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Enjoyable Reading I haven't read Camilla Lackberg before this book and I have to say I really enjoyed her writing. The beginning of the book introduces a lot of characters and not having the benefit of knowing some of the regular ones means there are a lot to keep track of. But once I got going the book is very hard to put down and kept me up longer than I wanted to on some nights. The mystery is creepy and elusive and I we are kept until the very end before its divulged, which made this an extra enjoyable read. I definitely want to read the next in the series.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good. As always; I have been an avid reader of mystery-suspense novels for very many years. I have read all of Camilla Lackberg.s books that have been translated into English. The Patrick Hedstrom and Erica Falk books and all her short stories. If anyone deserves the title of "Queen of Crime writers" it is Camilla Lackberg

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The drowning What is up with leaving the reader like this? When I purchase a novel I fully expect it to have a beginning, a middle and an end. What a disappointment! And what s transparent ploy to sell more books...a little bit of Gaby the greedy publisher rearing up here...as we say in Canada...what a bummer!...but I really enjoy your books nonetheless!
